New Peugeot 308 secures 5 star Euro NCAP rating

The New Peugeot 308 5-door hatchback, due on sale in the UK at the beginning of 2014, has just been awarded the maximum score of 5 stars in the Euro NCAP tests. With individual scores of 5 stars in all 4 categories (adult protection, child protection, pedestrian protection and safety assist), the New 308 confirms it has very high levels of safety protection.

The tests, carried out by the independent Euro NCAP, were done using the new tighter protocol for allocating results. The New 308 has high-levels of safety protection, particularly in the equipment fitted as standard:

  • Cruise control-speed limiter
  • ESP, ASR+ traction control
  • Six airbags (two frontal, two lateral, two curtain)
  • Three-point anchorage ISOFIX child seat mountings
  • Electric parking brake and Hill Start Assist from ACTIVE trim models (level 2)

The New 308 also benefits from other innovative driving assistance systems:

  • Active cruise control
  • Collision risk alert
  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Keyless entry and starting (Open & Go)
  • Blind spot sensors
  • Reversing camera with parking guidance
  • Peugeot Connect SOS and Assistance services

The PEUGEOT i-Cockpit in the New 308 also contributes towards the feeling of well-being on board, due to its compact steering wheel for agile response, head-up instrument panel, large touch screen and the tall central console.

The launch of the New 308 has already commenced in major European markets and after a couple of months there have already been more than 24,000 orders placed, well ahead of objectives.

The UK Peugeot Dealer network will be taking delivery of showroom display and demonstrators from mid-December, before first deliveries commence in January 2014.
