Used Citroen C6 Makes Traffic Jams Bearable

The used Citroen C6 is the best vehicle for those who frequently get stuck in motorway traffic jams

The used Citroen C6 is the best vehicle for those who frequently get stuck in motorway traffic jams. This is because Citroen's large executive cruiser has various features to make crawling along the inside lane more bearable. In fact, I would have liked to be driving it yesterday when stuck on the M3 with two moody teenagers. Mmm, what fun!

Anyway, the C6's traffic jam credentials start with its imposing bulk. This means it has more interior space than a semi-detached house, so reluctant long term passengers can comfortably stretch out on the luxurious upholstery. Once this novelty has worn off, normally after an hour staring at the same lorry, the C6's entertainment system raises morale. On top of the range Exclusive models this includes a six CD auto-changer, MP3 capability, and great quality speakers. There is also the reassurance of integrated sat-nav to indicate where you are not going.

When the traffic eventually clears the driver will discover the C6 is a satisfying cruiser, rather than a sporty racer. The high-end 3.0-litre 240bhp V6 diesel model wafts to 60mph in 8.6 seconds, and returns a combined average of 38mpg. This complements the gas suspension that provides a cosseting ride, and stiffens to keep the C6 reasonably composed in the corners. Okay, the steering can feel vague and the automatic gearbox hesitant, but most people who buy a large French vehicle are not looking for the ultimate driving experience.

So, how much does this traffic loving leviathan cost? Two year old examples of the used Citroen C6 are listed in Motoring.co.uk's used car database from only £15,000. All you need now is an empty road to drive on.
