Citroën C6 Sales Figures

Citroën C6

The Chinese-built C6 has nothing to do with the European C6 of a few years ago as this is a China-only large sedan, produced by Dongfeng Peugeot Citroën and it’s basically the same car as the Dongfeng Fengshen (Aeolus) A9, yet positioned higher in the market and with a fancier interior. An even higher positioned DS9 premium sedan on the same platform is expected too.

Citroën C6 Overview

The C6 competes with the Ford TaurusBuick LaCrosseToyota Crown and the Volkswagen Phideon, a segment that has already died in Europe and is shrinking in the US, but still very much alive in China. These cars are positioned just below luxury sedans like the BMW 3-Series L, Audi A4L and Mercedes-Benz C-Class L, but offer more interior room and more standard equipment compared to those locally produced Germans.

Dimensions of the C6 are 4.980/1.840/1.470 mm with a wheelbase of 2.900 mm and powertrain options are two turbocharged four-cylinder engines, both mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission: a 1.6-liter with 166hp/245Nm and a 1.8 liter with 204hp/280Nm, which may be a bit too small for Chinese tastes, especially considering the competition offers engines above 2-liters and even V6’s. Prices range from 189.900 yuan to 279.900 yuan. (€24.600,- / US$ 27,600 to €36.300,- / US$ 40,600). In comparison, the Citroën C5 starts at 180.000 yuan and ends at 240.000 yuan in China, and the locally made Mercedes-Benz C-Class L starts at 314.000 yuan and ends at 590.000 yuan. The Dongfeng Fengshen A9 is priced similar to the Citroën C5.
