    Review
    This is my 2nd RCZ, the first being an 11 plate 156 GT. I have to say that the R is a fantastic car, good build quality, reliable, great fun, economical and fairly cheap to maintain, though the spark plugs are replaced every year as per the service requirements. My only gripe is that the R doesnt come with front parking sensors as standard (option), otherwise a great car to own, just watch out for the brakes, they can squeal and you need to talk to Peugeot about that, replacements are 1200 quid for the front discs and 400 for the front pads, thats Alcon for you. Fuel economy is outstanding for a 270ps car, on a run at motorway speeds, 44 is easily achievable, 50+ can be done if you drive economically also.
    Reliability

    5 out of 5

    No real issues to report.
    Performance

    5 out of 5

    Excellent performance from its 1.6ltr engine, showing up much more exotic machinery with larger and much thirstier engines.
    Running Cost

    5 out of 5

    Brakes are not cheap but servicing is well priced for a performance car.
