Peugeot 207 CC

Peugeot has served up a double with the announcement of two highly-specified ‘Roland Garros’ Special Edition Coupé Cabriolet cars.

Perfectly timed to be enjoyed for the Summer (while the ‘Roland Garros - The French Open’ is on) and equipped, should the weather turn wet, such that the roof can be deployed within seconds, so that play can continue.

The Roland Garros SEs are distinguished by their bespoke Black or White paintwork on both the popular 207 CC or 308 CC.

The 207 CC Roland Garros is available in either Onyx Black or Bianca White. There is a choice of either the 1.6-litre VTi 120 petrol or 1.6-litre HDi 112 diesel engine.

The enhanced specification represents a great package with£1,235 worth of features but for just £650 above the Allure trim level, representing an advantage of £585.

Key features over the 207 CC Allure include Roland Garros luxury trimmed leather seats, Roland Garros branded windstop and Roland Garros embroided carpet mats.

Other high-level distinguishing features include Aluminium door sills, 17” Melbourne alloy wheels, Bi-Zone air conditioning, an electrochrome rear view mirror, auto headlamps, cruise control and speed limiter, Peugeot Connect with Bluetooth, rear parking aid, electric folding door mirrors and tinted rear windows.

Peugeot Product Summary – Coupé Cabriolets (CCs)

Peugeot is the pioneer of the clever metal-folding roof design, originated with the 401 Eclipse. The 402 followed, with the 601 and 602, before the modern return with the 206 CC in 2000. More recent models then followed with the 307, 207 and 308.  The Roland Garros identity has been applied on the 205 hatch and Cabriolet, 306 Cabriolet and 206 CC.
