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 available in two trim levels – Sport and the best selling GT  –  with a choice of two 1.6-litre petrol engines and a 2.0-litre HDi 163 turbo-diesel. Strong performance with 240 lb ft of torque from 2,000rpm means the RCZ can reach 62mph in 8.7seconds 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 pricing for the Peugeot RCZ starts at £21,600, with the HDi 163 Sport priced at £23,435 and the higher-specification GT at the top of the range at £25,835.
