Peugeot RCZ


What is it?
Possibly one of the best looking cars around,the RCZ is a two-door sports car from Peugeot.
With it’s double-bubble shaped roof and rear glass, this is not a car you are likely to miss on the roads.


What is it like inside?
Inside it is just as stylish. Despite the diminutive dimensions and sporty feel,
the interior is practical and surprisingly spacious for those in the front.

What is it like to drive?
Powered by a 2.0 litre diesel engine the RCZ is incredibly easy and rewarding to drive.
The engine is smooth and sweet. Through corners the RCZ grips well and remains refined
and comfortable even on worst back roads.

What is it likely to cost?
There are two version of the RCZ available a 1.6 petrol and a 2.0 HDi diesel. Economy ranges from
5.3 – 6.9 l/100km and the price for the 2.0 is €38,350
