    "Parked in the centre of a crowded city, the C6 grabs your attention like a crashed spaceship."

    Nice description. Sounds like a worthy succesor to the XM, CX, and DS then, at least as far as aesthetics go.

    Then its slightly downhill from there

    'getting underway lets a fair amount of vibration through to the major controls'

    'smoothing out bumps and potholes without allowing the body to bounce, lurch or roll too excessively' ...how excessively? not too excessively

    That's such a weird comment - one thing about oleopneumatic big (and medium) Citroens is their lack of bounce and lurch, surely .

    Just motor-writing speak. They can't bring themselves to admit that the normal suspension systems they rave about are crap, so they say "this works pretty well for something that's really good".

    Now, didn't the French review say the suspension was some form of active? The French review also had different figures for the 0-100 times. Where are Our Men in Europe when you need them to test-drive something?
