Peugeot 2008 – Crash & Safety Tests 2019

The passenger compartment of the 2008 remained stable in the frontal offset test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the kneesand femurs of the driver and passenger. Peugeot showed that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of differentsizes and to those sitting in different positions. In the full-width rigid barrier test, protection was rated as marginal for the neck of the driverand for the chest of both occupants. In the side barrier impact, protection of all critical body areas was good and the car scored full pointsin test. In the more severe side pole test, chest protection was rated as adequate and that of other body areas as good. Tests on the frontseats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. A geometricassessment of the rear seats also indicated good whiplash protection. The 2008 has an autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system asstandard equipment. In tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries occur, the systemperformed well.
