The Peugeot RCZ is distinguished by its characteristic double-bubble roofline and aluminium roof arches. It is available in two trim levels – Sport and GT (accounting for 80% of range) – and with a choice of two 1.6-litre petrol engines and a 2.0-litre HDi 163 turbo-diesel. A new special edition version - the RCZ Magnetic is now also available for a limited time.
Strong performance with 240 lb ft of torque from 2,000rpm means the RCZ can reach 62mph in 8.7 seconds onto a top speed of 137mph. The economy in the Combined Drive Cycle at 53.2mpg is impressive, combined with CO2 at just 139g/km.
The RCZ was recognised for its combination of style, performance and economy and has been Diesel Car Magazine's 'Best-Sports Car' title winner since its launch in 2010. Diesel Car Editor, Ian Robertson said: "Here is a pocket supercar for far less money than its voluptuous looks and slick behaviour would lead you to expect."
The Peugeot RCZ range starts at £21,600, with the HDi 163 Sport priced at £23,435 and the higher-specification GT at the top of the range at £25,835.
