Euro Peugeot RCZ Limited Edition 2010 : Review and Specification




I really don't get Peugeot. In the 80's they used to be the kings of group B racing with 500 hp turbo 1.8L. Now their front wheel drive 1.6 turbo makes 156 hp? First off make this an MR. Next boost the power by at least 120 hp. Good looks are nothing without the power to back them up. C'mon wake up peugeot! I think Peugeot's main flaw is not the power of the motor as some of the above mentioned.
What you should do is scratch the name RCZ and call it what it is, a Peugeot 308 coupe'. Then all will make sense.
After all, it still looks like the regular 308 from the front which kills the design in my opinion.
I like the THP175 engine, but it had a little lack of torque on 6000rpm, so I look forward to this 200hp version. The 156hp version is just for cruisers that wants a good looking car. PSA should just but the THP200 in normal 308GT, 207RC, 407 and C4 and so on... especially reserved for European buyers who will be able to order their cars at the Frankfurt Motor Show or on the Peugeot website. The number is significant as next year marks the 200th anniversary of the existence of Peugeot as an industrial brand name.Euro Peugeot RCZ Limited Edition 2010 : Review and Specification
The RCZ is powered by a 1.6-litre THP petrol engine making 115kW (156hp). Funny enough MINI's Roadster Concept has the exact same engine and gets 155kW (211hp) out of it. Plus the Englishman's concept is similar to the Peugeot; coupe, small engine, fun to drive. Hopefully the more powerful rumoured RCZ is under development as we speak.
The car runs off a 6-speed manual gearbox and sends power to the 19-inch wheels. These are matte black and are housed inside smoked chrome wheels arches. The Limited Edition RCZ features new pearlescent white paintwork and a double bubble roof covered in carbon fibre.
Inside nice things include Nappan black leather upholstery with heating function, front and rear parking assistance and more. These and other goodies like directional bi-xenon headlights, are part of three packages included with the €35,500 price.
