208 1.2 PureTech EAT6 5-Door (Petrol)

When driving the new PEUGEOT 208, you'll reap the full benefit of the PEUGEOT brand's experience and expertise, with equipment features that are constantly developing and delivering an ever-increasing level of safety.

ACTIVE CITY BRAKE

Active City Brakei (Emergency Urban Collision Braking System) is a new technology that helps avoid accidents or make them less serious if the driver is unable to respond quickly enough while travelling on city streets at speeds below 30 km/h.

A short-range laser sensor (Lidar) installed at windscreen level detects obstacles such as a stationary vehicle or one driving in the same direction. This sensor is capable of automatically applying maximum brake pressure, thereby helping avoid a collision or limit its consequences by reducing the impact speed. In certain circumstances, this system will even be able to go as far as automatically stopping the vehicle altogether, thereby avoiding a collision with the vehicle in front.

STRUCTURE

The new PEUGEOT 208 features an ultra-light body structure designed and conceived to deliver precision and to absorb the maximum possible amount of energy from various types of impact - thereby minimising the consequences for the vehicle, its occupants and other persons affected by such an impact.

The result is a tough but lightweight vehicle (from 975 kg depending on the version chosen) delivering greater agility, optimised fuel consumption and enhanced driving enjoyment.

AIRBAGS

In the event of a collision, the new PEUGEOT 208 includes 6 airbags as standard, offering extra protection for the occupants:

• 2 front airbags to protect the head and thorax of the driver and front passenger in the event of a frontal impact.

• 2 front side airbags to protect the driver and front passenger in the event of a side impact

• 2 front and rear curtain airbags to protect the heads of the front and rear occupants.

ESP

Every model in the 208 range comes with switchable ESP (Electronic Stability Control) fitted as standard, comprising ASR (anti-skid), DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), EBA (Emergency Brake Assist), ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and EBFD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution).

STATIC INTERSECTION LIGHTING

As dipped-beam headlamps or daytime running lights, when the turn indicator is activated or the steering wheel turned beyond a certain angle, this functioni allows the front fog lamps to light up the interior of a curve when driving at speeds below 40 km/h (e.g. when driving in town, on winding roads, at junctions or during parking manoeuvres).

PEUGEOT Connect SOS & Assistance

PEUGEOT is making emergency calls more readily available in Europe. When every minute counts, you can count on PEUGEOT Connect SOS for a rapid responsei.

• Automatic emergency call: if the airbags or pyrotechnic belts are triggered, the vehicle automatically sends out an emergency call - no action from the driver is required. PEUGEOT Connect SOS then locates the vehicle, initiates phone contact with its occupants and sends out suitable help. Phone contact can be carried out in the native language of the vehicle's owner.

• Manual emergency call: should you witness or experience a critical situation (such as illness or aggression), you'll be able to call PEUGEOT Connect SOS fast. All you need to do is press the SOS button at the level of the interior light for 3 seconds.

Should the vehicle become immobilised, you can initiate a call by pressing the PEUGEOT lion button situated at the level of the interior light for 2 seconds. A voice message will confirm that the call has gone out to PEUGEOT.
