    Under The Spotlight: The Peugeot RCZ

    Already having the honour of winning the Best Sports Car 2014 from both Auto Express and Diesel Car, Peugeot’s RCZ is having a tidal impact with industry experts and enthusiasts alike. We investigate what makes it stand out from the crowd.


Already having the honour of winning the Best Sports Car 2014 from both Auto Express and Diesel Car, Peugeot’s RCZ is having a tidal impact with industry experts and enthusiasts alike. With a motoring vision centred on a “head turning” appearance and crisp performance, the RCZ has blown expectations out of the water to become recognised as THE sports car of 2014.

Retaining its trademark “double bubble” roof, the streamline low profile design optimises performance by accentuating balance and handling. Inside, sporty doesn’t mean impractical and the RCZ is crammed with gadgets to ensure you get the most from the driving experience. Keeping you on the right track, Peugeot’s pioneering RT6 navigation system rests on the soft touch dash, taking you where you want to go through responsive mapping all from a compact 7” screen. For in-drive entertainment, Bluetooth connects your music collection to your RCZ, accessed through the RT6 navigation screen. 

The interior trim is naturally sporty to reflect the exterior, with the responsive driver controls placed in comfortable touching distance, allowing for maximisation of the RCZ’s performance. Trim wise the RCZ offers plenty of variety, including cloth blended with leather for ultimate comfort. Peugeot have captured the sports vibe perfectly with low seats, a soft touch steering wheel and race-style gear lever that combines high performance with an overall fun drive.

The entry level Sport kicks on with a 1.6 THP engine, delivering an impressive 156 BHP that keeps you in the fast lane. Alternatively, the top spec Red Carbon provides 163 BHP at an economical 54 MPG, although when you hit the accelerator this doesn’t matter!

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
