Peugeot RCZ

A concept car that became a reality. Is it cool?

It shames me to say but I test drove one. With a better front end it could have been cool, that rear bubble window is sublime. Just looks like any Peugeot from the front though. Uncool.

It's trying to be an Audi TT and that in itself makes it Chavtastic IMO

Uncool, but it's faster and handles better than my Brera (had a tussle with one) that doesn't make it cool though, it just makes it quick and capable.

I hate to like it because it is French. However I think it is becoming cool, and probably when old it may go Super cool. Of course the radical looks may also mean it becomes seriously uncool.
I am going to go against my principles (but then it is not about me ) and vote cool.

It has rather grown on me and I do like it

From the back - cool
From the front - uncool

Also, isn't the range of engines lacklustre? Have Peugeot managed to pull off a Brera? Not in that it in any way approaches the aesthetics of the Alfa, but in that there is quite a bit of buzz about the car but then they plonk a series of asthmatic slugs under the bonnet?

Looks like it should be mid-engined. Is it mid-engined?

Front is is a bit too dull.

The train :(

It looks too much like a TT, especially the rear quarters but it is quite cool for a Peugeot, certainly better than some of their other existing efforts, so I voted cool.

Uncool.

Front end looks like a boggo 206/7/8/whatever they are on now. The car as a whole is ok, but it falls into the 'wanted something really nice but couldn't afford it so got a cheap alternative' category - like a boxster, but moreso

I proposed this (thanks Ant). I really can't make my mind up about it.

At first I detested it for it's hairdressery-Audi TT connotations and its badge. But it remains moderately rare and as munich_to_turin says, that Zagato-esque double bubble roofline is sublime.

I think it works better with a glamorous young woman driving it on a sunny day rather than during a dismal Mancunian downpour, but I think it just creeps into cool and will become like a modern day Karmann Ghia in years to come. Dynamically not brilliant and with mundane mechanicals but still a cool thing.


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

If only that frog had a toothpick wedged horizontally between its cheeks to force its mouth into a grin, it'd be a perfect match for that dreadful Peugeot corporate look.

You mean looks like it should be front-engined, front-wheel-drive. See the front overhang in the side view? And not only is it FF, the fast variant of it only does 7.6 seconds to 62mph (slower than any current hot hatch - the old Peugeot 206 GTi 180 even narrowly beats it)

Peugeot face? Seriously uncool, straight away. It's just that wrong and that ridiculous.
