Citroen and its local distributor Brooklands Motors Sdn Bhd unveiled the C6 luxury sedan on 21st August.They expect to sale 30 units of the C6 in the first year.
Citroen has a long history in Malaysia and the best of times, more than 2000 cars a year were sold in the country.
The C6 is the first car to obtain four stars in the pedestrian test rating of EuroNCAP due to the inventive design, where the bonnet pops up a little if a person/animal is hit and skids over the car.
The interior is spacious, airy and finished to an impressively high standard. It provides truly generous space for four passengers (the fifth does less well), and their luggage too. And the invitingly sumptuous seats don’t disapppoint.
It is powered by a 3.0 L ES9 V6 producing 211 hp (155 kW). It is aimed as a stylish alternative to executive cars like the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Despite its hatchback shape, the car is a fastback and has a classical trunk (and a unique to the C6 concave rear window) such as the one the Citroën CX used to have. Citroën hopes one of its main selling points will be its innovative technology, which includes a head-up display,which projects a digital speed readout onto the windscreen and into the driver’s line-of sight, lane departure warning system, xenon directional headlamps, Hydractive suspension with electronically controlled springing and damping, and a rear spoiler which automatically adjusts to speed and braking.
The three-litre C6 luxury sedan costs RM398,000 with two year or 100,000KM warranty.
