Peugeot RCZ is a sports car manufactured by Peugeot which has been on sale since May 2010 and is currently available in almost 80 countries. Peugeot RCZ was officially introduced at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2009 and was initially announced as the 308 RCZ concept car at the 2007 Frankfurt show.
The Peugeot RCZ is assembled by Magna Steyr, a subsidiary of Magna International. The Peugeot RCZ was originally planned as a simple concept car but it received critical acclaim, capturing the imagination of the public and professionals. Peugeot decided to take the leap from concept to actual car and began the Peugeot RCZ production.
The Peugeot RCZ specs, lines and style have remained very close to the original concept so as not to disappoint public opinion; however a series of changes were made to the central dual exhaust system which was replaced by a dual exhaust to the left of the rear bumper.
However, the transformation from concept car to production vehicle of Peugeot RCZ required real determination, boldness and inventiveness qualities for which the manufacturer is renowned. Stylists and engineers worked together to ensure that all of the Peugeot RCZ specifications lived up to the promise of its exterior styling.
Indeed while the main aim was to conserve the stylistic blueprint of the concept, despite the considerable constraints imposed by the production and commercialization of the Peugeot RCZ, the challenge went much further. Highly ambitious targets were fixed in terms of drive ability and production quality, to give the Peugeot RCZ its own strong and unmistakable identity.
This Peugeot RCZ was, therefore, designed to become an exclusive vehicle, “something special”, a melting pot of emotions, aimed at modern and particularly demanding customers with expert opinions on what constitutes driving pleasure. Designed to enhance the sheer enjoyment of driving, the Peugeot RCZ cabriolet is also dynamic (the top of the range model features an all new 1.6 liter THP 147 kW/200 bhp engine), and responsible, offering an innovative blend of performance and environmental-friendliness.
With its reduced weight, fine-tuned aerodynamics and modern engine technology, the entry level model of Peugeot RCZ has CO2 emissions of only 139 g/km. An extension of this thinking is the Peugeot RCZ equipped with HYbrid4 technology which has been unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. This Peugeot RCZ is based on the same power train as the Peugeot 3008 HYbrid4 which will be available in spring 2011: a 2.0 liter HDi FAP 120 kW (163bhp) in front and a 27 kW (37bhp) electric motor at the rear.

Competitors Peugeot RCZ
The Peugeot RCZ strongest competition will come from the VW Scirocco, which is even better value and can house a couple of adults in the rear, but it’s a strong contender in the class and like the recently launched 3008 and 5008, takes Peugeot’s cars to a new level of quality and capability. The Peugeot RCZ is at its best in 200 GT spec and a hugely desirable coupe, but that doesn’t make it best in class.
Our gut feeling is that the faster, roomier, more comfortable VW would still triumph the Peugeot RCZ in a rematch, but it certainly would be closer. Were it not for the keen pricing of VW’s roomier Scirocco the RCZ would look good, but with the Peugeot RCZ price starting at over £20,000 for the THP156 petrol you’ll need to think harder. The Peugeot RCZ is, however, usefully cheaper than the Audi TT.
