Peugeot’s hot new Exalt concept will soon debut all over again, with a lightly revised version confirmed for next month’s Paris Motor Show.

Don’t expect any Earth-shattering changes, however, with the concept’s upgrades instead revolving around key key trim changes inside and out.

But, while this minor upgrade may seem little more than an excuse for another big outing, it could also represent plans for an even bigger showroom debut down the road.

For now, the svelte four-door coupe remains a study in design, with its deep red rear changed to a grey hue for its Paris appearance.

As before, Peugeot says that rear finish is a special ‘Shark Skin’ grain developed to improve aerodynamics, delivering a small (but undefined) benefit to fuel consumption figures.

Other aero treatments include a special air extractor at the rear bumper, along with special curves to the roof and wing mirrors.

Inside the updated Exalt is a new Newspaper Wood finish made, as the name suggests, from recycled newspapers.

The new material replaces the Asian Ebony trim of the Exalt’s previous incarnation, and there’s also new basalt fibre highlights in place of the earlier carbon fibre accents.

This revised Exalt is again powered by Peugeot Citroen’s Hybrid4 system, pairing a highly tuned 201kW/330Nm 1.6 litre petrol engine with an electric motor for a combined 253kW.

Power is sent to the concept's all-wheel-drive system through a six-speed auto.

Can we expect to see the Exalt in production?

Perhaps as a new-generation 407, and truly there is little about this design that would not easily translate to the road.

But for now, Peugeot has yet to confirm plans. In the meantime, we can look forward to the recently refreshed 508 sedan arriving in the coming months.
