Isn’t it nice to have desirable Peugeots back on our roads?
After a few years in the wilderness with a lineup of bland offerings, they’re really back on track these days. Much of that credit has to go to the RCZ coupe, one of the most striking vehicles on the roads.
The RCZ Magnetic, a new special edition, is latest to hit the streets. Peugeot’s press machine has been turned up to full pun-mode, with references to “positivity”, “charge” and “attraction”. But do the extra touches make the pretty coupe even more alluring?
The limited number available – just 170 – might do, as may the Pearlescent Pearl white or Metallic Nera black paintwork choices, with a standard ‘Black pack’. This comprises matt black roof arches, a brilliant black front grille, brake callipers and door mirror covers.
If you opt for the white exterior finish then you get a black leather interior too, but those who choose the darker bodywork get ‘red flame’-coloured leather, as depicted in the photos.
19-inch ‘Sortilege’ alloys are also included (painted black, naturally) and odds and ends like parking sensors, navigation and leather wheel and gearknob are all part of the package.
Based on Sport models, you’ll pay a few quid extra for the Magnetic.
The 1.6 THP 156 kicks off at 25,350, a full 3,750 more than the equivalent Sport and even 1,350 more than the already well-equipped GT models.
The 200 PS 1.6 petrol will set you back 27,735 overall and the 53.2 mpg diesel starts at 27,185.

We’re fans of the RCZ here at carwow – the diesel we tested last year looked stunning and proved great fun to drive too. However, at 25,350 and up we can’t help feeling this particular special edition loses some of its appeal.
Okay, so it gets a few nice equipment touches and some fancy paint, but the sweet spot of the RCZ range for us is GT trim. You still get plenty of kit but you’ll pay a little less for the privilege.
