The Peugeot RCZ has been named ‘Best Used Sports Car’ in the Diesel Car Used Car Top 50 and made the list of the top 15 best used cars overall.
Produced between 2010 and 2015, the RCZ was praised by Diesel Car for its stylish looks and intelligent design. The award adds to multiple accolades that the RCZ won in its lifetime, including Diesel Car’s ‘Best Sports Car’ for five consecutive years.
Ian Robertson, Editor of Diesel Car magazine, said: “The Peugeot RCZ has rakish looks and a clever double-bubble roof. Planted handling means the 161bhp 2.0-litre HDi engine has sufficient power to hussle the pretty PEUGEOT along swiftly, all the while delivering at least 53mpg, according to official figures.”
David Peel, Managing Director at Peugeot UK, said: “It is a fantastic achievement that the Peugeot RCZ is still receiving awards and being recognised for its impressive appearance, established handling and economic driving abilities. This accolade adds to the large number of awards the RCZ has won and shows that the high quality and performance of all Peugeot vehicles make them a practical and long term investment.”
Strangely enough, we never got to drive a diesel RCZ here at Simply Motor. However, we did get to test the RCZ R: with a 1.6-litre, 270PS turbo petrol engine. And it was an absolute hoot!
