This is the car we have been talking about for months and we also managed to get the exclusive pictures and technical specifications of the 508 Indian model. At the Auto Expo it turned out to be head turner and the credit is to be given to the brilliant look of the car. The car is expected to be launched soon and will be priced at around Rs. 20 Lakh ex-showroom. The car will be brought via the CBU route.

Initially the RCZ was projected as a concept car but over the years it turned into reality. The car is innovative and expressive in terms of styling, luxurious, efficient and most importantly environment friendly. The car’s powertrain is based on same combination as in 3009 Hybrid 4: a 2.0 litre HDi FAP 163 BHP in front and a 37 BHP electric motor at the rear.
