Peugeot has timed a meticulous marketing strategy for the introduction of the special edition 207 and 208 Coupe Cabriolets. Targeting tennis fans, Peugeot launches the Roland Garros Edition of the two models, just before the upcoming event – The French Open.
Both the coupe cabriolets, like the French Open tournament, are named after the legendary French pilot Roland Garros, and are offered in either Onyx black or Bianca white color schemes.
Speaking of the 207 cc Roland Garros, it features 17-inch alloys, leather upholstery, aluminum door sills, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights, self-dimming interior mirror, cruise control with speed limiter, rear parking sensors, tinted rear windows, electrically operated folding door mirrors, Bluetooth connectivity and Roland Garros-branded windstop and foot mats.
Power for the 207 is drawn from a 1.6-litre VTi 120 petrol or a 1.6-litre HDi 112 diesel engine. Whereas the 308 has a wider output range with the 1.6-litre THP petrol, pumping 156 hp or 200 hp. There is also a top-end 2.0-litre HDi diesel with 163 hp output.
As a part of the Roland Garros special edition product, the 308 features Luxury Blue/ Grey leather seats, 18-inch Dark Storm alloys, Peugeot Connect with Bluetooth, front and rear parking sensors, automatic headlamps, rain sensing wipers, Roland Garros branded foot mats and windstop.
