RCZ heralds new chapter for Peugeot
The launch of the RCZ will mark the start of a dynamic new chapter in the history of Peugeot. The coupé has been designed to be a special vehicle within the French house's range, designed to enhance the enjoyment of driving.
With its reduced weight, fine-tuned aerodynamics and modern engine technology, the entry level model has CO2 emissions of only 139 g/km. It is a compact two+two coupé featuring a 'double bubble' roof, aluminium 'roof arches', black roof panel and dark-tinted rear windscreen.
The use of high quality materials throughout the interior combines with the elegant design to enhance the overall premium feeling of the interior. The instrument panel dials are contained in metal cases, with photo-etched, back-lit markings, a feature which is also continued in the stylish centrally mounted clock.
The fascia panel is covered entirely with an innovative soft feel material, hi-tech in appearance and very elegant in style. Customers will also be able to choose from several different colours. Nappa integral leather trim, a luxurious thick leather with a particularly fine, smooth grain is also available.
There is a range of hi-tech in-car-entertainment systems - Peugeot Connect 3D multimedia system, JBL hi-fi system, and Peugeot Connect USB box.
It also offers two occasional seats, fully sculpted and perfectly usable, since the design of the roof with its double bubble offers extra headroom to these occasional rear passengers.
Three high-performance engines, all meeting Euro 5 emission standards, will feature on the RCZ: a 1.6 litre THP 200 bhp six-speed manual; a 1.6-litre THP 156 bhp six speed manual or automatic; and a 2.0-litre HDi FAP 163 bhp six-speed manual.
The RCZ goes on sale at Michael Attard Ltd, Blata l-Bajda next spring.
