207 awarded maximum 5 star Euro NCAP occupant protection rating

A Euro NCAP 5 star occupant protection, 3 star pedestrian protection and 4 star child protection rating has not been achieved before by a supermini.

First the Peugeot 1007 rewrote the Euro NCAP rule book by becoming the first car to exceed 36 points, and still is the only car to achieve this milestone. Now Peugeotís new 207 sets another milestone by becoming the Brandís first car to be awarded 3 stars for pedestrian protection by Euro NCAP.

Sharing the same platform as the Peugeot 1007 clearly has given the new Peugeot 207 inner strength, but adding big car protection technology from the Peugeot 407 has made it pedestrian friendly as well.

The 207 borrows from the 407 the use of two impact absorption structures which distribute impact energy more efficiently in the event of a collision and also enhance repairability and pedestrian impact protection. This technology is not normally found on a supermini.

The 207 is one of the first vehicles to be designed to meet the requirements of the new European directive concerning pedestrian impact protection.

A strong structure is not the only safety system in the 207ís armoury as it also has up to six airbags, anti-submarining seats, pre-tensioning seatbelts with force limiters and, Isofix mountings for child protection on the two outer rear seats that comply with the new three-point fixing standards.

Active safety is also a strong point with the standard fitment on all models of ABS with EBFD/EBA, and ESP, xenon directional headlamps and tyre pressure sensors fitted as standard on the range topping GT model.

The new Peugeot 207, which is coming to Australia, possibly late this year, will provide a new chapter in the design of small cars with its high quality, interior space, stylish design and safety, recognised by the award of a top score by Euro NCAP.
