Peugeot RCZ, 2011, Insurance and lawyer info


Peugeot RCZ, 2011

At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Peugeot unveiled an exercise in style that left no observer unmoved: the Peugeot 308 RC Z Concept car.

The idea of marketing the car on a commercial basis quickly became a reality.
However, the transformation from concept car to production vehicle required real determination, boldness and inventiveness... qualities for which the manufacturer is renowned.
Stylists and engineers worked together to ensure that all of the vehicle's specification lived up to the promise of its exterior styling.

While the main aim was to conserve the stylistic blueprint of the concept, despite the considerable constraints imposed by its production and commercialisation, the challenge went much further. Highly ambitious targets were fixed in terms of driveability and production quality, to give the car its own strong and unmistakable identity.
This compact 2+2 coupé was, therefore, designed to become an exclusive vehicle, "something special", a melting pot of emotions, aimed at modern and particularly demanding customers with expert opinions on what constitutes driving pleasure.
Its name, RCZ, symbolises this distinctive and singular positioning in relation to the Peugeot range, since it is the first passenger vehicle not to use the numbering system with a central "zero" or "double zero".

The Peugeot RCZ therefore illustrates the sum of Peugeot values, which are constantly realigned with the times.
Designed to enhance the sheer enjoyment of driving, the Peugeot RCZ is also dynamic (the top of the range model features an all new 1.6 litre THP 147 kW/200 bhp engine), and responsible, offering an innovative blend of performance and environmental-friendliness. With its reduced weight, fine-tuned aerodynamics and modern engine technology, the entry level model has CO2 emissions of only 139 g/km.

An extension of this thinking is the Peugeot RCZ equipped with HYbrid4 technology which will be unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. This Peugeot RCZ is based on the same power train as the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 which will be available in Spring 2011: a 2.0 litre HDi FAP 120 kW (163bhp) in front and a 27 kW (37bhp) electric motor at the rear. This concept has emissions of only 95 g/km of CO2 whilst benefiting from a potential of 147kW (200bhp) and four wheel drive.

The reflects Peugeot's wish to offer this type of technology on different vehicles in its range; vehicles which can be very different (crossover, coupé...) which may be based on different platforms but with a common theme: to offer renewed driving enjoyment.
Another challenge the project faced was to successfully develop this new vehicle within a particularly short time span. With this in mind, it was decided the vehicle would be assembled at a production centre that specialises in exclusive vehicles built in small production runs, inside the Magna Steyr plant in Graz, Austria.

As a result, just two years after being exhibited as a concept car, the Peugeot RCZ will be unveiled for the first time in public, in its definitive form, at the 63rd Frankfurt Motor Show.

Sculptural, dynamic and elegant, the style of the Peugeot RCZ offers new harmonious and vibrant proportions based on a compact and original three-compartment coupé architecture.

The front feline look, a characteristic of the Manufacturer, the soft contours of the wings and the large diameter wheels, the spoiler and ruby-red LED rear lights with their crystal look create a general appearance that combines sensuality and power, technology and distinction.
Lastly, the vehicle's proportions (1.36 m high) and the beautifully designed lines of the body with its double bubble roof, optimises air flow to create superb aerodynamics. The active rear spoiler also contributes to the car's aerodynamic efficiency: it can be deployed in two positions according to the speed of the car, to ensure an ideal balance between road holding and fuel consumption.

The passenger compartment of the Peugeot RCZ instantly immerses the driver in a subtly elitist ambience echoing the world of motorsport.
The fluid and streamlined design of the fascia panel follows the steeply inclined style that has won many plaudits in the manufacturer's latest models, and here fits perfectly into the distinctive world of this coupé.

The use of high quality materials combines with the elegant contours to enhance the refined overall atmosphere.
Beneath the eye line of the driver, mirroring the clock located in the centre of the fascia panel, the instrument panel dials are contained in metal cases, with photo-etched, back-lit markings.

The fascia panel is covered entirely with an innovative soft feel material, hi-tech in appearance and very elegant. The customer can also choose from several different colours, including a Nappa integral leather trim (a luxurious thick leather with a particularly fine, smooth grain).

The interior, its elegance enhanced by the range of hi-tech equipment it can accommodate (new WIP Com 3D multimedia system, JBL™ Hi-fisystem, USB connector on all versions, etc), is also versatile, allowing users to adapt to any situation.

For example, for a long weekend, the boot offers a capacity of 384 litres (321 dm3 according to the VDA standard) added to which are storage spaces under the floor. There is potential to increase this capacity further by folding the rear seat backs down, which gives a maximum boot volume of 760 litres (639 dm3 VDA).
Finally, it offers two occasional seats, fully sculpted and perfectly usable, especially since the design of the roof with its double bubble offers extra headroom to these occasional rear passengers.

I n 2010, three engines will find their place under the large aluminium bonnet of the Peugeot RCZ. High-performance engines in every sense of the term: generous torque and power, low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions and compliance with the Euro 5 standard. These environmental concerns were one of the project's key priorities, constituting a modern and responsible approach for a vehicle in this segment.

1.6 litre THP 147 kW (200 bhp) BVM6
The all new engine (which will appear in the summer of 2010) allows the car's chassis to fulfil its true potential. With its maximum torque of 255 Nm at 1700 rpm (or 275 with overboost) and a maximum power of 147 kW at 5800 rpm, the Peugeot RCZ benefits from dynamic acceleration (80 to 120 kph in 6.5 seconds in fifth gear); 0 to 100 kph in 7.6 seconds...) while its fuel consumption does not exceed 7.1 litres/100 km in the combined cycle (less than 165 g/km of CO2).

For this purpose, this 4-cylinder engine with a capacity of 1598 cm3 combines all of the most recent technology to create a world first: Twin-Scroll turbocharger for performance and instant response at very low engine speeds, direct petrol injection, and variable valve lift coupled with variable valve timing on the intake and exhaust camshafts (VTi technology), for reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

1.6 litre THP 115 kW (156 bhp) BVM6 or BVA6

This turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine achieves a remarkable synthesis between performance (240 Nm from 1400 rpm and 115 kW at 5800 rpm) and fuel consumption (6.9 litres/100 km; 159 g/km of CO2 with a manual gearbox). It will also be available from the summer of 2010, in association with an all new 6-speed sequential automatic gearbox.

2.0 litre HDi FAP 120 kW (163 bhp) BVM6

With a capacity of 1997 cm3, this engine - launched this year - develops a maximum power of 120 kW at 3750 rpm and a generous maximum torque of 340 Nm at 2000 rpm. To obtain this level of performance it has a new generation ECCS (Extreme Convent ional Combust ion System) combustion chamber, a variable-geometry low-inertia turbocharger, a high-pressure pump allowing a pressure of 2000 bar in the common rail and solenoid injectors with eight apertures.

The engine gives free rein to the Peugeot RCZ's potential in terms of road holding while limiting its fuel consumption to only 5.4 litres/100 km in the combined cycle, with CO2 emissions of 139 g/km.


The renowned "passion" which Peugeot gives to its cars here acquires its full meaning. Based on the manufacturer's know-how in terms of driveability and road holding, the aim of the Peugeot RCZ is to take the notion of driving pleasure to new heights.

The Peugeot RCZ benefits fundamentally from a highly efficient suspension set-up developed from the marque's other platform two vehicles (McPherson type front suspension and rear torsion beam). In addition, the car's ride height and centre of gravity have been lowered by 20 mm and 40 mm respectively compared to a 308 Hatchback. Furthermore, compared to the latter, the Peugeot RCZ is wider (+ 30 mm) with wider front and rear tracks (+ 54 mm and + 72 mm). The suspension and dampers have been adapted accordingly and, with the addition of wider tyres (18" ou 19" !), the end result is road holding of the very highest order. Lastly, when the Peugeot RCZ is equipped with the THP 147 kW (200 bhp) engine, the front axle incorporates a special lower anti-roll bar to make the car even more responsive and agile, while at the same time guaranteeing remarkable efficiency.

The hydraulic power steering is designed to offer accuracy of the highest order and excellent responsiveness.
Braking, meanwhile, is powerful and durable and is assured by generously dimensioned ventilated discs with a diameter of 302 mm and a thickness of 26 mm on the 1.6 litre THP 147 kW (200 bhp) engine notably of 340x30mm. All models are equipped with rear brake discs with a diameter of 290x12 mm.

So that every customer can make their car unique, the Peugeot RCZ lays great store on personalisation, to keep within the vehicle's exclusive positioning.
The range includes: a real carbon roof, roof arches in different colours (black chrome, "sand"), a range of 18 and 19" alloy wheels in several finishes (matt black, dark grey, diamanté), black lacquered body parts at the front, carbon door mirror shells, bodywork decorations, etc.
These elements of personalisation can be ordered at the time of purchase and will be available individually or grouped together.

In addition to primary safety assured by the excellent road holding, secondary safety, which benefits from a particularly optimised structure and efficient means of restraint, also includes an active bonnet which "pops-up" due to a pyrotechnic triggering system and limits the degree of injury a pedestrian is likely to suffer in the event of a collision.
