    Default Citroen C6 set to return

    The Citroen C6 looks set to return, alas as a China only prospect.

    Given its styling, it might actually be a good thing it's staying there.

    The new owners have always been fond of bling.

    It looks _ _ _ _! The grill is like a bloody Chrysler or something. What is wrong with the world?

    That's a straight Chinkydoodleoscopy, everyone is getting them. Penned with the deft touch of an excavator. And a tailings dam full of empathy.

    Definitely looks like a 2016 Citroen. We had a glimpse of the people-mover/van on another thread. I guess Citroen has moved its design team to China to save money.

    Why don't they just let the name of Citroen die with dignity?

    die with dignity
    They own it. And quiet dignity and refinement aren't in the language.

    So the original C6 was "a classically eccentric French design" and that horror is more conventional. Presumably it is on steel. I think I give up.

    It is of course designed to sell in China and it will. It will be spacious, comfortable, with good AC and will never break down in a traffic jam. Hang on, that describes a Xantia.

    The proud & haughty Peugeot family never wanted CitroŽn & always considered CitroŽn the poor relations. The new rich of the emerging Chinese market don't know "subtle", so cheap prestige with size & bling will sell & make money.

    Because it's all about making money at the current time.

    There is zero brand loyalty from manufacturer. History might well as not exist.

    If they could sell a t**d in a box with the Citroen logo attached they would do so.

    Enjoy your real Citroen vehicles and forget the current ones, like many buyers do, expect for the brainwashed and sometime delusional few on AF.

    And Peugeot are similar, however I see a glimmer of hope with Renault , who acknowledge their history, albeit strictly as a marketing tool.

    It's all had the Richard. When most people refuse to pay for nostalgia (or foresight!) at a personal level, why should corporations do otherwise?

    I'd suggest yes and sales seem to be building. But's it's last years data.

    Which cars are NOT environmentally unfriendly? VW has just set aside 10 Billion dollars for associated "environmental costs".

    I think we will see some legal reps from Kia or Hyundai (I can't remember and don't care which). Looks like the rear end is a straight copy of one of their big cars. One day we might see an interesting car come out of China, but it won't be from Dongfeng/PSA.

    Someone needs to produce a car we need, not one that we want, because we can't imagine what is possible. Citroen used to do it, now Tesla is closest to the mark.
