The French car maker is celebrating 30 years as an official partner of the famous tennis tournament and, true to yearly tradition, has presented a special edition 208 for the event.
The Peugeot 208 Roland Garros 2014, a 5-door sedan available only with the premium Féline trim package, is available for €20,900.
The new model stands out for the "clay court" color seen in its rear-view mirror caps, its Roland Garros logo stickers, its Peugeot lettering and the center of its 16-inch aluminum wheels.
The model's standard features include a panoramic roof with a tinted rear window, rear parking assist, heated sport seats for the driver and front passenger, and exclusive two-tone leather upholstery.
This 208 Roland Garros comes in black (Perla Nera) or white (Perle Nacré) and is available with all of the same fuel and diesel engines offered with the standard version of the sedan.
Peugeot has been an official partner of the French Open (also known as the Roland Garros) for three decades. In addition, one of the car maker's brand ambassadors is none other than Novak Djokovic, who is ranked second worldwide in men's tennis. The Roland Garros tennis tournament runs this year from May 25 to June 8.
