Peugeot’s answer to the Audi TT, the RC-Z coupé, to go on sale in 2010
24 April 2008

Peugeot has announced that it will produce the RC-Z coupé that made its debut in concept form at Frankfurt in 2007. You can expect to see the full production model for the first time at the 2009 Frankfurt show, before sales begin in spring 2010.Deciding to create the RC-Z is a significant step for the French marque. It will represent a move away from the current design philosophy associated with its coupés and roadsters, and signal a move towards a new era of appealing driver’s cars and higher quality products. We won’t know how much of the stand out styling has made it through production until next year’s Frankfurt show, but Peugeot maintains that it “will keep all the appeal and excitement of the original concept.”Peugeot hasn't released any further information on the production car, but you can find out all the details of the concept by clicking here, or watch Autocar's drive of the Peugeot 308 RC-Z.

Hmm, from the B-Pillar forward it's a slightly face-lifted Pug saloon or hatch, so the big news for this car is the styling from that point back... only thats all it is, styling. Those rear seats don't look like practical seats, making it a big two seat coupe. Would you chose this car over a Audi or Nissan etc.? It's a Peugeot! I've owned one for a few years, and not only is the cars reliability laughable, the dealer service is only only matched in it's woefulness by the treatment from Peugeot UK. I'd advise all to steer well clear of the brand.

Such a shame, as I feel the same about SEAT due to my very very poor service during my 2 cupra ownership previously. The thing is, I know plenty of fed up Ford, Renault, Honda customers who feel exactly the same!

What do we do?-All buy Skoda's?

I know, I know, they're all as bad as each other, but really my dealer was absolute **** [quote fast_eddie]...What do we do?-All buy Skoda's?[/quote] Not for me as the same dealer sells Skoda as Peugeot, I did give them a econd chance when trying to buy a company car, but they were asking £1,500 over Skoda's list price!! so I went and got a Honda and couldn't be happier with the quality or dealer.

It looks okay, but isn't a proper coupe. It needs/should be RWD. When will Manufacturers realise a sports car/coupe must be RWD. FWD is for hot hatches/Repmobiles.

    The handsome Jaguar XF Sportbrake exhibits all the hallmarks that makes the saloon great, and with the silky smooth diesel V6 makes it a compelling choice

    Volkswagen's new compact crossover has the looks, the engineering and the build quality to be a resounding success, but not with this diesel engine

    The all-paw M550i is a fast, effortless mile-muncher, but there's a reason why it won't be sold in the UK

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided

    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
