The model on show at MPH will be in white and it will be equipped with a 200bhp turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine, which also appears in the Mini Cooper S.

It will get from 0-62mph in 7.6sec and from 50-75mph in fifth gear in 6.5secs and go on to do more than 140mph.

It will also feature 19-inch black alloy wheels, a carbonfibre roof and a full leather interior. The show model will be priced from £22,200 when it goes on sale in april next year.

The base model will cost under £20,000.

One of these or a audi tt about 6 month to 1 year old. I would choose the audi personally - surely depreciation which isn't great on peugeots will be one of its downfalls. Well done peugeot for making it - but to me £22000 for a peugeot - prefer the tt anyday.

I don't like the RCZ or the TT, but I suppose they aren't aimed at men.

The new Subarota will compete with this price and class wise. And it should win.

Have you seen how much cars cost now? The 1.6 Astra tested today is over £18,000. £22,000 for this appears very good value in comparison.

ok its a peugeot but for a car that looks this good i'd say its good value! and as for the astra as quoted everyone knows you never pay list prices on mainstream model for example if you want a current new astra a local dealer to me are doing them from £8995 not the £15000 asking price so at the end of the day these list prices mean nothing

At the risk of schoolboy humour...

'Double bubble roof'... and it's called the RC-Z :) (Yes, I'm being that obvious!)

Nothing like over playing the joke ;)

Take no notice... I'm only here for the biscuits

Still an unresolved design, the corporate nose is horrible,there's no V6, and it's looks like a commitee car, no, not special enough, no "jump in me and drive me" looks,and to pricey for the spec, it's an 8/10 car.

Well it's certainly far better looking than that hideous mini thingy, I mean that even made the ssangyong rodius look good.

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out

    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
