2009 Peugeot RCZ


The Peugeot RCZ is a sports coupe the car manufacturer Peugeot , the Magna Steyr in Austria produced for Peugeot. The RCZ was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2009 and has since 24 April of 2010.

Weapon against Audi TT Lion, this 2 +2 coupe looks forward revitalize the image of Peugeot somewhat dormant in recent years especially in the face of booming creativity Citroƫn cousin.

Question design, the Peugeot RCZ manages to stand out quite clearly from the compact 308 which it derives. Indeed, except for the bow and its gaping grille conjugate to the headlights, prominent profile and stern are altogether unprecedented.

We rejoice to see that particular roof and silver curves flag that had so pleased the concept car , were kept on the standard version. However, the interior is disappointing. If the leather cap that covers the dash seems attractive, the center console too wise appararaƮt especially compared to the recent 3008.

Long by 4.29 m for a width of 1, 84 and a height of 1, 36 m, the Peugeot RCZ will offer only two real seats. Any 2 +2 coupe that is, its rear seats booster will make up the numbers. The RCZ will not put any drive in the field of cut 407 more bourgeois and touring. As for the trunk generous enough (capacity of between 384 and 760 liters if the rear seats folded), it will allow for romantic getaways for long weekends.

Lovers of dynamism should be seduced by the offer even if the engine shows only 1.6 THP 200 hp and 255 Nm on the standard version against 218 on the concept presented in Frankfurt two years ago. Mated to a six-speed manual, it claims a 0-100km / h in 7.6 s and a consolidated joint of 7.7 liters per 100 km. This will be supported by a turbocharged 1.6 of 156 hp and 240 Nm with a drink mixed from 6.9 liters per 100 km also available with an automatic transmission and a 2.0 Diesel FAP 163 bhp and 340 Nm for an average consumption of 5.4 liters per 100 km .

The RCZ is equipped with ESP and Brake Assist (EBA) as standard. The driver and front passenger airbags Airbag each is a neck that is incorporated into the seat structure.
The new guidelines of the Euro-NCAP crash tests, the RCZ met in full. A new pyrotechnic pop-up bonnet to reduce the risk of injury to pedestrians in the event of a claim by the hood is raised slightly in a collision with a pedestrian.

Note that the Peugeot RCZ is also presented as a study with a hybrid diesel / electric motor.
The hybrid version of the RCZ has also been presented in Frankfurt, she was with the 2.0-liter HDI FAP engine 120 kW (163 hp) standard. This drives the front axle, a 37 hp (27 kW) electric motor, the rear axle. This combination is a consumption of 3.7 liters of diesel will be over 100 kilometers, which corresponds to a CO 2 emissions of 95 g / km.
