PEUGEOT has raised the net on its own doubles pairing in the wake of the French Open tennis championships.
Two special Roland Garros editions of the popular 108 city car and 208 supermini will hit the streets later this month, along with a sporty new GT Line trim grade for the 108 range.
The 108 TOP! and 208 Roland Garros editions salute the famous Paris venue that hosts the tournament which Peugeot has supported for some 32 years.
Both models are positioned above the Allure trim grade and feature a high level of standard equipment with exclusive features.
The 108 TOP! Roland Garros is available as a three or five-door variant with a 1.2-litre PureTech 82 petrol engine.
Painted in Diamond White with a retractable black fabric hood, orange door mirrors and 15-inch alloy wheels with orange centre caps, the car comes with tinted rear and side windows, LED daytime running lights and Roland Garros badging.
Buyers also get sat-nav, air-con, electric/heated door mirrors, a reversing camera and the company's Open & Go keyless entry. Prices are from £13,360.
Meanwhile, the 208 Roland Garros comes as a five-door model with three engine/gearbox combinations.
The 1.2 PureTech 110 petrol engine is available with a five speed manual or six speed automatic gearbox for £17,965 and £18,965 respectively, while the 1.6L BlueHDi 100 diesel costs from £18,915 with a five speed manual gearbox.
All three have low CO 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-inch alloys, tinted rear windows, daytime LED running lights, orange mirrors and exclusive badging.
A panoramic glass roof, leather two-tone seats with orange contrast stitching, leather steering wheel, DAB digital radio, sat-nav and multi-function touchscreen are also part of a comprehensive package.
The introduction of the new 108 GT Line follows its popularity on the 208, 308 and 508 models, with the 308 GT Line versions accounting for nearly 20 per cent of the range.
GT Line supersedes the Feline Nav trim level with an increased spec that includes 15-inch alloys, 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 feature the 1.2 PureTech 82bhp petrol engine, with the three door at £12,760 and the five door £13,160.
