Following the success at the French Open by Peugeot brand ambassador Novak Djokovic, Peugeot has added two new Special Edition 108 and 208 models.
The new Roland Garros Special Editions will be joined by a new sporty 108 ‘GT Line’ trim. The 108 TOP! and 208 Roland Garros Special Editions are a nod to the famous Paris venue that hosts the French Open tennis tournament, which Peugeot has supported for 32 years.
Both models are positioned above the Allure trim level and feature a ‘high level’ of standard equipment with exclusive features, says the French brand.
The 108 TOP! Roland Garros is available as a three or five door vehicle with a 99g/km 1.2L PureTech 82 petrol engine. Finished in Diamond White with a retractable black fabric roof, it also has orange door mirrors and 15” Thorren alloy wheels with orange centre caps. Tinted rear and side windows, LED daytime running lights and Roland Garros badging complete the car’s external styling, while satellite navigation, air conditioning, electric/heated door mirrors and Peugeot Open & Go keyless entry are all included.
Safety features fitted as standard include a reversing camera, Active City Brake and Lane Departure Warning. The Rayyura Grey cloth with orange trim and Roland Garros Porcelain dash detailing give the city car a ‘luxurious feel’, with pricing from £13,360 OTR.
The 208 Roland Garros comes as a five door model with three engine/gearbox combinations - the 1.2L PureTech 110 petrol engine is available with a five speed manual or six speed ‘EAT6’ automatic gearbox for £17,965 and £18,965 OTR respectively, while the 1.6L BlueHDi 100 Diesel is available from £18,915 OTR with a five speed manual gearbox. All three have CO2 emissions at 99g/km, 104g/km and 90g/km.
The 208 Roland Garros is available in either Nera Black or Satin White paintwork, with 16” alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, daytime LED running lights, orange mirrors and exclusive badging/detailing. A cielo panoramic glass roof, leather two-tone seats with orange contrast stitching, leather steering wheel, DAB digital radio, satellite navigation and multi-function touchscreen with Mirror Screen® and CarPlay are also included.
A rear parking aid and reversing camera helps avoid collisions, while front and rear electric windows, electric heated mirrors, cruise control/speed limiter and automatic headlights complete the supplementary specification list.
Separately, the introduction of the new 108 ‘GT Line’ comes as a result of its popularity on the 208, 308 and 508 models, says Peugeot - with the 308 ‘GT Line’ versions accounting for nearly 20% of range. The ‘GT Line’ supersedes the Feline Nav trim level with an increased specification that includes 15” ‘S Line’ alloy wheels, tinted rear windows, red Peugeot lettering on the front grille, gloss black door mirrors and front fog lights. Three and five door ‘GT Line’ models are powered by a 1.2L PureTech 82hp petrol engine, and are priced from £12,760 OTR (five door £13,160).
The technology inside the 108 ‘GT Line’ has been added to with automatic air conditioning, a brand new Active City Brake & Lane Departure Warning system and satellite navigation as standard. It also features the popular Laser Red interior ambience colour scheme and Black Claudia leather seats.
