a major refresh in the first quarter of next year, but it is previewing the car at the Paris Motor Show. The obvious upgrades are a new exterior and some interior upgrades. Peugeot will also begin offering a new top spec version of the RCZ in 2013 called the RCZ R with a 260hp tune of the 1.6-liter THP engine.

will be on display at the Paris Motor Show. 

The most obvious change to the RCZ is the completely new front end that is much smoother overall. It has a large central air intake bordered on the top and bottom with chrome bars. There are six LEDs attached to the front grill. The headlights are available as either halogen with aluminum trim or directional xenon lights with titanium trim. 

Inside, the Peugeot has done less. All models get black lacquer trim around the gearshift and GT models get more leather and aluminum trim. Peugeot is also adding under floor storage areas that add a total of 30 liters of storage. For 2013 all cars get automatic wipers, automatic headlamps and dimming interior mirror.

Another major change for the RCZ is that Peugeot is adding a significant number of personalization options. These options include different colored grills, a trim package that adds matte black components, new bodywork decals, two carbon roof options, two new wheel designs, the 7in navigation system from the 508 and a Sport Pack that adds a smaller steering wheel and short-throw shifter.

The RCZ R will be painted in black and copper at the Paris Motor Show to match the Onyx concept. It uses a new 260hp tune of the 1.6-litre THP engine that emits 155g/km of CO2. It also gets a stiffer suspension, limited-slip differential and more luxurious interior and exterior trim. It will not be added until the end of 2013.
