Peugeot RCZ Coupe

Is it a TT? Is it an Audi? No it’s a… Peugeot? Yes folks you are looking at possibly one of sexiest things to come out of France since all those hot illegal immigrants through the channel tunnel!!!

Un-badged it is a straight up next generation TT, but the new Peugeot RCZ Coupe will actually be hitting our UK shores next spring. Originally due to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, those Frenchies just couldn’t wait any longer. The 2+2 sports coupe also goes a step further in letting customers personalise many of the features, including roof, roof arches, wheels, body parts and more.

Inside, things are pretty much straight out of a 308 hatch, though slightly better made and with more options. In terms of the engine, expect three options on launch, those being;
1.6 THP petrol twin-scroll turbocharger, with;

  • 200 BHP @ 5,000 rpm
  • 188 lb ft at 1,700rpm (or 203 lb ft with overboost)
  • Six-speed manual gearbox
  • Combined cycle is 39.8mpg

1.6 petrol turbocharged direct-injection, with;

  • 158 BHP @ 5,800 rpm
  • 177 lb ft at 1,400rpm
  • Six-speed manual gearbox or Automatic
  • Combined cycle is 40.9mpg

2.0 four-cylinder turbo diesel, with;

  • 163 BHP @ 3,750 rpm
  • 251 lb ft at 2,000rpm
  • Six-speed manual gearbox
  • Combined cycle is 52.3mpg

The quickest option propelling the pug along to 62mph in 7.6 seconds. No word on price yet and I think that will be a deciding factor. Looks nice, performance is standard and price will be imperative.
