The revised Peugeot RCZ - which features a redesigned front end, as well as a larger range of options - will go on sale in the UK in January with prices starting from £21,595.
The revised two-tier range, which begins with the Sport and is capped by the flagship GT model, now has automatic lighting as standard. Other visual changes include new colours and a host of decal and colour packs, including matte black roof arches. There’s also more alloy wheel designs to choose from, with the Sport staying on 18-inch alloys and the GT riding on a new 19-inch wheel.
Inside, there’s a new leather/Alcantara combination trim available, with GT models offered with a new Cohiba Brown leather trim. GT models are also fitted with an interior sports kit, which includes a sports steering wheel and gear lever.
Standard equipment across the range consists of dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors as well as Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
There are no mechanical changes to the 1.6-litre petrol four-cylinder and 2.0-litre turbodiesel offered. The 163bhp GT HDi remains the most economical, with 53.2mpg and 139g/km of CO2, with the fastest being the 200bhp 1.6 turbo-powered versions, which manage 0-62mph in 7.6 seconds in either Sport or GT trim.
The update brings a £385 price increase, though, with the RCZ Sport starting from £21,595 and the RCZ GT available from £23,995. A new range-topping RCZ-R, powered by a 240bhp engine, will go on sale in late 2013.
