Hi All,

Just noticed this reported on Auto Express: - Click Here -

All I can say is, how bad is that? I really wish they had not called it a "Citroen C6".

It does look to me as if it could be sitting on the same platform as a real C6 (look at the proportions of the wheelbase to front overhang, the shape of the door apertures) and there is the suggestion of having the same style of rear window (which is a pointless and surely super-expensive token to being Citroen-esque on an otherwise dull as dull gets design), but, otherwise, why bother? Only just short of a crime against the marque's heritage. Gutting!

Looks like a Peugeot 508, with badly grafted chevrons on the front, to me.
508 is built on the same basic platform as the C5 and C6.

"Different is everything"(?)

Except, in this case, "The same is nothing"...

Looks like a Passat; just not as nice!

It is very ugly, boring, dull, unimpressive.

Does this suddenly mean that C6 owners [of the non Chinese variety] suddenly have a more valuable / desirable asset?

It must mean that...

[Hopefully they do not send any of these to New Zealand]

Cheers All

Agree with your comments 100% Ken.

Boring and dull as dishwater. How very sad.

Cheers Fraser

I think many are forgetting something. The Peugeot Citroen group is a money making entity and if they can sell a piece of [%*^#@!] to China then they will. Also we need to bare in mind that with the exception of the Cactus Citroen have produced nothing that thinks outside the box since the C6.
