The Review

For a 1.8l enigne, this car packs a lot of muscle. I didn't find it lacking when I had to overtake. The Passat handles very well too, steering is accurate and suspension gives a very comfortbale ride. The interior design is great. Very well done with soft touch plastics. Unfortunately the car is only beautiful on the inside. The exterior looks a little boring. Unlike BMW and Mercs, the passat dosen't have much to make it stand out.

Strengths

1.8l engine is powerful
Great interior
Comfort
Accurate steering

Weaknesses

Boring exterior looks


One hell of a sexy
car!

The Review

Took a look at the car over the weekend. Have to say that i love the design. The curves on this car look really good and sexy. Love the way the roof looks so different from different angles. The rear wheel arches make the back look big, curvy and chunky. Something I like, but didn't appeal to my friend. I guess I like big butts. Whatever your taste the RZC is sure to turn heads. The interior is nice too. It has a simple and refined feel. The analog clock on the dash is a beautiful feature. The dials are well weighted. Seats are very comfortable with a lot of support. Boot space is quite decent considering it's a coupe. The ride is smooth and comfortable. Surprised that the 1.6l engine can produce so muh power. But I don't feel like the car can compare to the Audi TT or BMW Z4 base models. Cornering is rally good and there is very little road and wind noise. The car's performance is decent, in fact its pretty good. But as a sports coupe... I guess power-wise it may be lacking.

Strengths

Sexy Design is sure to turn heads
Refined interior
Smooth drive

Weaknesses

Wish it was more powerful


Great drive but
could have been more
spacious.

The Review

Peugeot's crossover is great drive. The steering is smooth and light, making the car easy to drive. The car takes corners very well with little roll. For a car it's size, the engine seems tiny. It's only 1.6l, but hey this car can be really quick. Not sure if this is the same engine in the 308 coupe... doubt it The inside is well designed. The dash is built around the driver and looks really good. There's also a heads up display that tells you your speed without letting you take your eyes off the road. The storage space is huge and you can fold down the rear seats to triple the space! You can even fit a cycle in it though i don't think thats a good idea. Only problem is Peugeot sacrificed rear passenger comfort for the boot space. I find the back cramped. But i'm 186 cm tall so I might be a little unfair... The car has some other useful features like the electronic parking brake and hill assist. Hill assist stops the car from rolling back when u start off on steep, slippery slopes. All in all this is a good car that seems to get better the more I drive it. It's like a jack of all trades. It's fast, handles well and can accomodate a family.

Strengths

Fast and handles very well
Easy to drive

Weaknesses

A little cramped in the back
Not a seven seater

I think a turbo charged 1.6 on an MPV is really quite cool. Especially when you tell others that your MPV only run on 1.6! Probably the same type as my favourite 207 GTI. asdzds

I feel that this car is very unique, and its good number of features would prove to be useful. Just beware of its reliability, as Peugeots are not very well-famed for having good reliability. Have fun in your Peugeot! asdzds
