Citroen C6 Makes Public Debut In Beijing Auto Show
Citroen has brought the C6 nameplate back from the dead for a new car that debuted at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show.The French brand wasn't alone on the project, as it was given a hand from its local partner, Dongfeng. In fact, the new C6 is basically a rebadged version of the Dongfeng Fengshen A9 with a slightly updated exterior and a more premium cabin.
Riding on the PSA's EMP2 platform, just like its smaller sibling, the Peugeot 308 Sedan, the Citroen C6 is more than 5 meters (197 in) long and has a 2.9 (114 in) meters wheelbase. Inside, it has a 12.3-inch LCD full-color digital instrument cluster, a large touchscreen display, leather and Nappa upholstery, wood trim, panoramic sunroof, four-zone automatic air conditioning and new driver assistance systems.
Citroen has yet to reveal full specs of the new flagship model, but it's expected to use a 1.8-liter turbo petrol engine rated at just over 200 HP and 280 Nm (207 lb-ft) of torque, sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. See more photos after the cut:
