Peugeot Quartz Concept: An SUV for the future

Peugeot Quartz Concept: An SUV for the future

Posted on:

The Peugeot QUARTZ Concept - a new vision for the Crossover unveiled at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. This next generation SUV blends dazzling design with innovative materials and a powerful HYbrid drivetrain to create the ultimate premium family car experience.

The strong, powerful and sporty style of the Peugeot QUARTZ combines the body of an SUV with the cabin of a saloon to create an ultra-athletic crossover. It uses a plug-in hybrid drivetrain comprising a petrol engine supplemented by two electric motors. The evocatively embossed bonnet houses the 1.6-litre THP 270 power plant developed by Peugeot Sport. Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, the four-cylinder engine delivers torque of 330Nm, with a specific output of nearly 170hp per litre, making it one of the world's best performing engines.

The QUARTZ is based on the same EMP2 platform that underpins the New 308. The composite structure and bonded panels save weight but bring exceptional stiffness. This enabled Peugeot’s engineers to remove the central B pillar and create scissor doors. A retractable step further eases access.

"Peugeot's style strength lies in its prowess at tackling a saloon or hatchback just as effectively as a Crossover to create the kind of stylish car that people would really love to own." said Gilles Vidal, Peugeot Design Director.

The Peugeot EXALT Concept is a premium car that employs locally sourced and recycled materials. A new finish uses ‘Newspaper Wood’ that’s created from the pages of the business dailies.

Paying homage to the art of the French car industry from the twenties and thirties, its bodywork is hand-formed by a master panel beater.

The rear is trimmed in a textile known as ‘Shark Skin’, which is highlighted by a clear line that creates a sophisticated tone-on-tone transition between the bare steel and the grey of the textile.

With 40 cars across a 4,000sqm stand in Hall One of the Paris Motor Show, Peugeot is revealing a revitalised and unified range for 2014.
