For The engine may not be blistering off the mark, but it has impressive mid-range punch and revs willingly.
Against Sport trim misses out on a few treats, and going for this most expensive engine means the car has an uncomfortably high price.

There's nothing hugely wrong with this version of the RCZ, but we think the THP 156 version is better value.

Target Price team says:
More and more manufacturers are offering personalisation options and Peugeot hasn't missed the chance to make some more cash from Peugeot RCZ customers.
On top of the usual metallic paint option, you can dress the exterior of your RCZ with three sets of body stickers, six types of alloys, three colour options for the roof rails, a smoked or chrome grille, extended sideskirts and colour-coded brake calipers.
There’s also an optional carbonfibre finish for the roof. This doesn’t replace the conventional steel roof, instead it simply sits on top of it, adding extra weight – plus £1330 to the bill.
Additionally, you can choose to add sat-nav a JBL stereo upgrade and a full leather interior. The smaller sports steering and leather bound gearlever that are standard on the 200THP model can also be added to lower-spec Sport models.
