The Peugeot RCZ Wins Best Coupe Award

The Peugeot RCZ is continuing its barnstorming year with two more awards, this time at the Auto Express New Car Awards where it scooped the Best Coupe Award and the Auto Express Design Award, which is decided by an online readers' vote.

The response to the online Design Award vote was emphatic; from a judges' selection of 40 vehicles, the Peugeot RCZ ran away with 11 per cent of the readers' votes.

Editor in Chief David Johns said: "Road cars rarely look as good as their concept car inspirations - but the RCZ is no ordinary vehicle. And Peugeot is reaping the rewards, as the coupe has gone from show star to hot showroom property in the blink of an eye."

The Peugeot RCZ is, indeed, selling like hot cakes, with over half of the 2010 sales allocation having already been taken up within two months of launch.

Unsurprisingly, Britain's biggest selling weekly car magazine also named the Peugeot RCZ Coupe of the Year. Johns commented: "With its swooping lines, distinctive 'double bubble' roof and bold detailing, the French machine looks like it has driven straight off the designer's drawing board. Better still, the RCZ's beauty is much more than skin deep."

That beauty has helped the Peugeot RCZ collect a raft of awards in the year of its launch, including Fleet World magazine 'Design of the Year', Diesel Car magazine 'Sports Car of the Year' and 'Most Beautiful Car of the Year' at the 25th International Automobile Festival.

Available in Sport and GT trim levels with a choice of three engines, the Peugeot RCZ range is as follows:
