Citroen C6 flagship sedan debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005, and its sales in the European market started in the autumn of the same year. Alas, because of the constantly declining demand, in December 2012 the French automaker rolled production of this model. Initially C6 replaces the outdated Citroen ZX, but, compared to its predecessor, the car has become even more distinctive. Sloping shape of the body, the unusual shape of the front and rear lighting, original concave rear window – all this makes the model does not look like any one of the competitors.
