Carmart Introduces The Svelte New Peugeot RCZ

Continuing a sixty year partnership with French automaker Peugeot, Carmart (Pvt) Ltd of Sri Lanka has introduced a stunning addition to its range with the newly face-lifted RCZ sports coupé. 

With this facelift the RCZ gains a redesigned front end with blackened headlights, a revised grille and LED daytime running lights.  Packed with performance-enhancing features, the RCZ looks the part with its trademark ‘double-bubble’ roof (it is the only car in the world ever to have it); high quality sports interior and sleek, low profile; the makings of a balanced, sporty and sophisticated automobile.

The 2+2 seat coupé embraces Peugeot’s signature ‘Motion and Emotion’ philosophy, a concept that integrates the intuitive sensations of driving with style and technology, making for an emotionally gratifying experience.  An extended range of color and material combinations, both to the exterior and interior, allow customers to personalize their RCZ, further enhancing its emotional engagement. 

Improved grip and sports steering makes the Peugeot RCZ driver feel at one with the road.  Its turbocharged 1.6L engine, producing up to 200bhp topped the 1.4L-1.8L category of the International Engine of the Year Awards for seven consecutive years from 2007 to 2013.  A choice of Tiptronic, automatic or 6 speed short throw manual transmissions are available to suit a variety of driving styles.

“The RCZ is a head turner and it’s certain to put a smile on the face of the driver, as well as the faces of passengers and onlookers,” explained Yasendra Amerasinghe, Carmart CEO.

 “It combines a strong performance and dynamic handling with unique and striking aesthetics. The capacious boot, rear bench seat and comfortable ride make the car practical enough for regular use, even for families with small children.  A top-of-the-range Hi-Fi system by JBL, an available radio/telecommunications system with motorized large-screen LCD display, directional headlamps that turns into corners, and details such as intelligent traction control and Hill Start Assist (which stops the vehicle from rolling back during a hill start) are a few of the great additional features of the car.  We are confident that everyone in Sri Lanka, whether a car enthusiast or not, will fall in love with the new RCZ.  With improvements in local infrastructure, several customers are eager to unravel the power within their cars and the RCZ offers much to be experienced.”

The Peugeot RCZ has already made its mark with strong sales worldwide, positive road tests and accomplishments in motorsport and has won numerous awards for its design and performance.

Carmart is the longest operating distributor for Peugeot in Asia, and one of the longest worldwide, an achievement that underpins its professionalism, dedication to the brand, and commitment to aftersales care.  Their new, state-of-the-art workshop at Colombo 2 is fully geared to handle exotic models such as the RCZ.
