With that said, we could be looking at a possible increase for the manual variant in the future – a figure bordering RM277k, perhaps? Only time will tell. From what we can gather, there doesn’t seem to be any noticeable upgrade in terms of equipment offered, leaving us scratching our heads at the price hike.

The Peugeot RCZ is powered by a 1.6 litre inline four-cylinder engine with 156 hp/240 Nm and 200 hp/275 Nm of torque, respectively for the auto and manual. Performance figures include a top speed of 213 km/h and 237 km/h, with the century sprint dispatched in 8.4 seconds versus 7.5 – auto and manual, respectively.
