We’d Love To See A New Peugeot RCZ But, Sadly, It Won’t Happen

In a cut-throat automotive world where modern customers dream of owning SUVs and crossovers, a sports car from a brand that doesn’t have a history in this niche, like Peugeot’s RCZ is, sadly, not a favorite with customers.

Consequently, it’s little surprise that Peugeot has ruled out the possibility of a new RCZ on numerous occasions, no matter how sexy such a car could be. If you’re like us, you may be upset by the French automaker’s decision after seeing these renderings of what a next-generation RCZ could look like.

Created by Russian artist Aksyonov Nikita, the new RCZ has been rendered in both coupe and cabriolet guises and retains many of the same styling elements as the original – which, in our opinion, is no bad thing as it was already quite a looker.

From the double-bubble roof to the elongated decklid and short front overhang, the RCZ was one of the most eye-catching cars on the market. Updated with a set of LED headlights and taillights, it looks even sleeker.

Like we said, though, Peugeot prefers spending its cash developing SUVs, like the 3008, that sell like hotcakes and the low-volume RCZ will not be replaced.

    Peugeot doesn’t have a history of sports (and sporty) cars? Come on, Anderson, do better!

  • Although Peugeot do their best, RCZ simply don’t have the sports car performance and the handling (Excluding the R, but in terms of dynamic they are still lacking)

    This car just screams the looks of a mid engine car, had they made this an MR car that’s cheaper than a Cayman but pricier than a mx5/brz I bet it would do really well.
