After the first images of the second-generation C6 surfaced online a fortnight ago, Citroen's new flagship sedan has been officially presented to the public.

Positioned as a China-only flagship model, the new C6 is the product of the collaboration between the French brand and its Chinese partner, Dongfeng.

A partnership so close, in fact, that the C6 is essentially a reskinned version of Dongfeng’s Fengshen A9 sedan with a more premium interior.


Differing from the original C6 that ended production in 2012, the new car wears a far more conventional design than the eccentric look of the first-generation.

Citroen’s new large sedan rides on PSA’s EMP2 platform, measuring over five metres long with a 2.9-metre wheelbase - credit to China’s increasing demand for long-wheelbase vehicles.

In the cabin, the C6 features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a large central touchscreen, nappa leather upholstery, wood trim highlights, panoramic roof and four-zone climate control.


Full specifications of the new flagship sedan are still yet to be released but it is believed that the new C6 will be powered by a 1.8-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing around 150kW, sent to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

Being a China-only model, don’t expect to see the new Citroen C6 on Australian roads anytime soon.
