You wait ages for a chic little urban coupe, and then two come along at once...

The Peugeot has a more traditional method for boosting power from its diesel engine: a turbocharger. It's a meaty engine, this, developing 163bhp and a hefty 236lb ft. The RCZ can't, on paper at least, quite match the CR-Z's frugality, returning 53mpg to the Honda's 56mpg, but it's a fair whack quicker, hitting 62mph in a bit under nine seconds and going 10mph quicker if you find the right bit of derestricted autobahn.
