Citroen revives the luxury C6 sedan for the Chinese market

Like most automakers nowadays, Citroen is looking to grab a big chunk of the Chinese automobile market, currently the world’s biggest. And, the French are planning to do so using the luxury DS brand and its cooperation with China-based company Dongfeng. The latest results of the Dongfeng-Citroen joint venture have been unveiled at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show and the C6 is one of them.

If the C6 moniker sounds familiar is because Citroen has used it in the past for a full-size executive car. Launched in 2005 as a replacement for the Citroen XM, the C6 was one of the most innovative vehicles of its time, featuring a head-up display, a lane departure warning system, xenon directional headlamps, Hydractive suspension with electronically controlled springing and damping, and a rear spoiler which automatically adjusted to speed and braking. Its design was also bold and unique with a tall, fastback-like glasshouse and a concave rear window.

Although the C6 didn’t catch on commercially — only 23,400 units were built until 2012 — it became an emblematic vehicle of the mid-2000s and is often regarded as Citroen’s last bold attempt in terms of production cars. The new C6 has nothing in common with its predecessor and according to Citroen it will only be sold in China as the company’s range-topping sedan. More on that and what it brings to the table in our full review below.
