New and improved Peugeot RCZ revealed

An updated model of the Peugeot RCZ will be launched in the new year, with drivers treated to an improved design and enhanced specification options.

The vehicle was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show back in September, with those in attendance instantly picking up on how the car's front face has been given a dramatic makeover.

On top of this, the new Peugeot RCZ presents more equipment options than what the outgoing model was able to present to drivers, while new colour and trim designs are set to offer owners an even wider level of variety and customisation.

More details about the latest car from the French vehicle maker have now been revealed though, including the fact that the UK will see the Sport and GT variations of the range delivered.

For the Peugeot RCZ Sport, drivers will be pleased to hear that the 18-inch 'Original' alloy wheels make a return, as does dual-zone air conditioning, a handy rear parking assist and a USB box with Bluetooth.

However, there are some features coming to the all-new RCZ Sport that were not present in the outgoing model. Automatic lighting has been added to the car's design, which includes 'Approach' and 'Follow-me-home' setting.

Meanwhile, half leather and leather/Alcantara interior trims are sure to create a more luxurious feeling when behind the wheel.

When it comes to the Peugeot RCZ GT, the French car giant has opted to fit the car with 19-inch 'Technical' alloy wheels as standard.

This is only the tip of the iceberg though, with drivers presented with a deluxe interior sports kit, which features a sports steering wheel and gear lever, when they step inside this vehicle.

Matt black roof arches and a Cohiba Brown interior are among the customisation options on offer for the reworked RCZ GT too.
Neil Moscrop, sales director of Peugeot UK, said: "We're delighted to have even more features that enhance the new RCZ, which has already proved to be a great hit with customers who love its characteristic double-bubble roofline and distinctive roof arches."

The improved Peugeot RCZ Sport and GT both launch across the UK in January 2013.
