Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe named ‘Sports Car of the Year’

Diesel Car Magazine Awards

The impressive Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupe has been named ‘Sports Car of the Year 2014’ by Diesel Car Magazine for the fifth year running. The stylish two-door was restyled in 2013 and is characterised by its ‘double-bubble’ roofline and aluminium roof arches. The car boasts a 1.6L petrol engine which is capable of 0-62mph in 8.3 seconds. It has a high quality sports interior and spacious rear seating which when folded reveal a cavernous boot space. The double bubble glass roof gives the Peugeot RC-Z its own identity. The interior of the Peugeot RC-Z is equally impressive with hand stitched leather on the dashboard and a piano black finish to the centre console. The look is completed with comfortable leather bucket seats. 

Ian Robertson, Editor of DieselCar, said "the Peugeot RCZ offers a rewarding driving experience, agile handling and a well sorted ride, and frugal diesel power. It really is the icing on the cake for the sexily styled sports coupé."

The RCZ is available in Sport trim priced from £23,950 or GT specification from £26,350, it represents impressive value with CO2 at just 135g/km and economy on the Combined Drive Cycle of 54.3mpg yet it can also accelerate to 62mph in 8.7 seconds on to a potential top speed of 137mph. Just a few of the many reasons it is a regular award-winning combination.
