    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. 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!
