The C6 is an exclusive limousine-like car that's big on luxury, comfort, safety and style. The trouble is it competes in a market where people aspire to premium brand cars, so Citroen has its work cut out to attract buyers used to cars from BMW or Audi.

3.5 out of 5

The C6 is an exclusive limousine-like car that's big on luxury, comfort, safety and style. The trouble is it competes in a market where people aspire to premium brand cars, so Citroen has its work cut out to attract buyers used to cars from BMW or Audi. Depreciation is another weakness and this is made more difficult by the fact that much of the range is sold with healthy cashback discounts.

That said, the C6 certainly has rarity on its side and anyone buying one will feel very special every time they travel in it. It's incredibly comfortable, if you're a passenger, but the driving experience is a let down with woolly steering, a hesitant automatic gearbox and poor body control in corners.

What owners say...

 It is ideal transport for 4 people crossing Europe. Acres of space and a superb cruiser.

 I wouldn't describe the C6 as practical. It's not meant to be that kind of car. Plenty of space inside, for drivers and front and rear passengers.

 Comfort and safety. I can drive 400 miles and get out of the car refreshed. Nothing else is anywhere near as good at cruising. It is the safest car I have ever owned. 5 star driver and passenger...
