2011 Peugeot RCZ
Our soon to be favourite Peugeot has been confirmed for an Australian release by July next year. The 308 based RCZ will be officially unveiled at the Frankfurt Motorshow this year and go into production by April next year.

Currently there are two engines planned, the 1.6-litre turbo petrol and the 2.0-litre HDi diesel (Euro V). As for transmissions, Peugeot plans to have a six-speed manual and auto available at launch. We are not certain if the automatic will be built by Getrag.

Little else is known about the car expect that it will be 4.29 metres in length, about 100mm longer than it’s main competitor, the Audi TT.

Given the current financial times, it’s a great sign to see a car company not give in to the usual financial dilemmas and ditch its spirited cars.

In fact, Peugeot hopes to reinstate the sports car feel back in the brand with the help of the RCZ which will act as the halo car for the French brand. (Hi Cars)

3 engines, really. At launch it'll have the THP150 Prince engine, and a 163 diesel developed from the 140 unit in the current 407.

Following soon after is a 218bhp version of the Prince engine which is due to first see action in the MINI John Cooper Works model.

Pricing could be interesting - pug reckon the base model will chirp in just under £20k, but seeing as the current 308GT costs more than that I can't see how that'll happen.

I don't think it'll even have a FAP, so pug'll be pulling a right blinder - belching out hooj ammounts of particulate smoke, yet free road tax due to low CO2! Save the planet while simultaneously destroying it...
