For so many years, Peugeot has released some of the finest cars into the automobile market. But one stands out due it's wide variety of turbocharged engines and sleek lines - the Peugeot RCZ. This Peugeot sports car is stylish and is believed to be the best the automaker has ever manufactured. It has been compared with similar models made by Audi but the RCZ's double bubble roof and exquisite detailing has made it the toast of many. Here is an exclusive review of the best Peugeot sports car ever.


The peugeot RCZ has remained the best Peugeot sports car ever by several standards

It has enough space

In as much as it is a sports car, it can comfortably sit two people in front as compared to a typical sports car. But that doesn't mean you can easily climb into it and out like other small sport cars. The Volkswagen Scirocco and Audi TT have a much lower roof. The RCZ also has a more compact backseat. Well, as expected of a sports car, you aren't meant to stay in it for so long. The boot of the car is a bit spacious as well. Since it's not a hatchback, you won't expect it to be made for much cargo. But it fits quite right.

It's comfortable while you're driving

A lot of tall people who love sport cars don't like the fact that it doesn't give them enough room while driving. This issue was sorted with the RCZ. Regardless of how short or long your legs and arms are, you will be comfortable behind the steering wheel. The seats are also firm, so you don't sink in while driving. The only issue with that is, when driving on rough roads, you may feel way too much impact and also as a result of it's suspensions.
