RCZ Awarded Fourth Successive ‘Best Sports Car’ Accolade

In the auspicious annual Diesel Car magazine’s 'Car of the Year Awards 2013', the Peugeot RCZ Sports Coupé has again been selected as the winner of the 'Best Sports Car' category, beating off strong opposition from the Mercedes-Benz SLK and others to retain this title undefeated.

The Peugeot RCZ is distinguished by its characteristic double-bubble roofline and aluminium roof arches. It is available in two trim levels – Sport and GT (accounting for 80% of range) – and with a choice of two 1.6-litre petrol engines and a 2.0-litre HDi 163 turbo-diesel. A new special edition version - the RCZ Magnetic is now also available for a limited time.

Strong performance with 240 lb ft of torque from 2,000rpm means the RCZ can reach 62mph in 8.7 seconds onto a top speed of 137mph. The economy in the Combined Drive Cycle at 53.2mpg is impressive, combined with CO2 at just 139g/km.

The RCZ was recognised for its combination of style, performance and economy and has been Diesel Car Magazine's 'Best-Sports Car' title winner since its launch in 2010. Diesel Car Editor, Ian Robertson said: "Here is a pocket supercar for far less money than its voluptuous looks and slick behaviour would lead you to expect."

I knew the HDi was good, but it's great to read such accolades for it :clap:
RCZ is the only car to make the Audi TT appear dated, and is officially the sexiest car on the road.
