The PEUGEOT RCZ has been awarded the ‘Best Used Sports Car’ title by Diesel Car & Eco Car in the ‘Used Car Top 50 2019’ list for a second year running.  Victory in the ‘Best Used Sports Car’ category comes alongside a 14th overall placement for the PEUGEOT RCZ in the Diesel & Eco Car ‘Used Car Top 50 2019’ list.

Produced between 2010 and 2015, the PEUGEOT RCZ quickly developed a cult following with its distinctive ‘double-bubble’ roof and stylish yet practical interior, with comfortable sports seats and rear seats which folded down to provide a spacious boot. The PEUGEOT RCZ was launched with three engines, including one 161hp diesel engine, capable of taking the model from 0-62mph in 8.7 seconds.

Ian Robertson, Editor of Diesel Car & Eco Car, said: “Designed to take on the Audi TT, the RCZ was pivotal in PEUGEOT’s move upmarket, with a well-appointed interior. Ignore the tiny back seats and the cabin has plenty of room for two tall adults and a surprisingly large boot. It’s an absolute stunner that you simply can’t miss out on.”

Recognition also came for the PEUGEOT 308, named among the ‘Diesel Car & Eco Car Used Car Top 50 2019’ list for a second year running, in 46th place on the overall list.

David Peel, Managing Director of PEUGEOT UK said: “For the PEUGEOT RCZ to receive such high praise four years after production ended is a strong testament to the model and its following among enthusiasts in the UK. Diesel Car & Eco Car provides some of the most respected expertise on cars, both new and used, available in the UK market and for two PEUGEOT models to be included in its Top 50 list is a great achievement once again.”

Diesel Car & Eco Car measure success for a model featured on their ‘Used Car Top 50’ list by considering a number of factors including: purchase price, residual value, general competency and fitness for purpose, as well as being judged by their expert panel. Each vehicle considered is then given a score out of 10 that decides their final placings.
