The Peugeot RCZ coupe will cost from £19,900 when it goes on sale next spring.
The 2+2 Audi TT rival, which will be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show, will have a choice of three engines and two trims.
The cheapest model – and the only one with a list price of less than £20,000 – will have the 1.6-litre THP 156 engine and a manual gearbox. Among its standard equipment will be alloy wheels, sports front seats, dual-zone air-conditioning, and a host of safety kit, including four airbags and ESP.
Upgrading to the second trim level will cost £2300, but add leather upholstery, electric front seats, automatic lights and wipers, and larger alloy wheels. On top of that, there will be a range of personalisation options, such as different roof panels and alloy wheels, sat-nav and a variety of styling enhancements.
Buyers can also specify an automatic gearbox with the basic engine – adding £1100 to the price – but the remaining engines come only with a manual gearbox.
Models with the 2.0 HDI 163 diesel engine cost £1800 more than the equivalent car with the THP 156 engine
