There are a lot of reviews written about the Peugeot RCZ. Some are positive while others are not. This is due to the fact that Peugeot has provided boring cars for almost 10 years so it is easy to understand why some are not excited about this latest model. Definitely this RCZ is a true revelation. It can give you a smooth ride and it is proven to be stronger on curves. Aside from the 205 Gti, this is the finest car that the car maker has ever produced (this is according to the people who have test drive the RCZ). They are surprised with the stability that it offers. The first noticeable thing about the car is its aesthetic and styling. If you are a bit observant with Peugeot’s previous models, you will be familiar with the shape of the RCZ.  The concept was first launched in 2007 and the next year it was approved for production.

The version features a double bubble roof and back windows and it has also an aluminum pillar. The bold profile of the car marks the fact that this one coming from Peugeot is unique from its closest competition. Another factor is the design which gives the feeling that the RCZ is handcrafted. The overall look of the car is a lot more expensive than the actual price tag which is £20,450. On the streets, there is no rival for the appeal that the car is projecting. Although, there are some details that are lacking compared to its German opponents. You will never get tired looking at the car. Its interior has similar feedback. The leather dash is neatly done with contrasting small details and there are gems like instruments. The large clock on the center of the dashboard makes a bold statement especially when it comes to the fashion appeal of the car. The chrome effect gives the car a sparkling effect. Everything on the driver’s horizon looks good however if you look down, there are hard plastics that lack some classy appeal. This is also true on the rear end of the car.

For families that are planning to buy the RCZ, they need to be aware that the rear seats are only best for kids. They are also not appropriate for long journeys as it lacks space. Although it isn’t completely impractical, the bench on the back can be folded so you can add space for your luggage. There is also a storage net that could stop things from sliding. The engine is very smooth and its torque can deliver up to 5,000 rpm. The six speed manual box is very light and its steering wheel is responsive. Finally, the front wheels offer great grips. Peugeot has discovered the magic essence to dominate their rivals on the same class.
