The list price is almost ridiculously high for a Citroën, and even with a discount you'll probably be paying more than £35,000. Running costs are relatively high, too. Resale values and the approach of Citroën's discount-driven dealers are also major concerns. We would be very wary, indeed.
Citroën C6 Saloon quality & reliability
Not in the same league as Audi for fit and finish, but a big step forward for Citroën. There are some nice textures and materials in the cabin, and a few delightful touches, such as the vertically siding door pocket lids. The engine is proven, but we'll be interested to see how the complex suspension stands the test of time and mileage.
Citroën C6 Saloon safety & security
A maximum five stars in Euro NCAP crash tests for occupant protection and four for pedestrian safety (a first anywhere) – the C6, complete with nine airbags, looks after those inside and out. Stability control is also standard, as is a lane departure warning system. Security is unproven, but the essentials are present.
