The Peugeot RCZ might be the French marque’s most powerful on-road car ever but this stylishly contemporary two-door sports coupé has a lot more to offer than mere pace.
The RCZ is available in Sport, GT and GT Line trim levels, each resplendent in a standard-issue Opal White solid paint finish. A range of optional liveries include Moroccan Red, Nera Black and Mercury Grey. Numerous eye-catching elements include 18-inch alloy wheels (secured with locking nuts), an active rear spoiler and a twin sports exhaust. Tinted rear windows are also a feature, as are electrically powered, folding and heated door mirrors. Standard illumination includes automatic headlights, with follow-me-home functionality, while xenon self-levelling and directional headlights are available with GT line grades.
The RCZ’s snazzy yet comfortable cabin features adjustable front sports seats and a folding two-seat rear bench. The driver will enjoy the firm grip provided by a leather tilt-and telescopic steering wheel (which delivers variable-rate power-assisted steering) and the peace of mind provided by speed-limiting cruise control. Other standard features include one-touch electric front windows and automatic dual-zone air-conditioning. Despite its distinctly sporty nature, the RCZ possesses a minimum-capacity 384-litre boot.
Two 1.6-litre petrol engines and a 2.0-litre diesel unit are available for the RCZ. A 200bhp petrol option delivers 0-60mph in roughly 7.8 seconds and a top speed of 146mph, making it the high-performance choice. For optimal fuel-efficiency, a 2.0-litre 163bhp diesel engine will return as much as 54.3mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 130g/km, while still producing sub-nine-second acceleration. Each option is paired with six-speed manual transmission, allowing you to carefully control the vehicle’s ascent through the gears.
Keeping everyone on board entertained is a six-speaker sound system which includes an FM/AM radio and an MP3-compatible CD player. Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity is featured as standard too. GT Line grades add a Peugeot Connect satellite navigation system.
A range of driver aids include Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Stability Control, tyre pressure sensors and rear parking assist. Among the vehicle’s passive safety features are front and side-positioned airbags, and ISOFIX anchor points located in the rear compartment.
A Thatcham-approved Category 1 alarm, an engine immobiliser and remote-controlled central locking (with deadlocks) help to keep this cherishable automotive asset as secure as possible.
