2008 SUV

FROM £16,300

The 2008 SUV offers a range of safety equipment to keep you and your passengers safe.

ACTIVE CITY BRAKE

i

Active City Brake* is a new technology which makes it possible to avoid an accident or reduce its seriousness if the driver fails to react. It works in urban conditions, at speeds of less than 20 mph. A short range sensor is fitted to the top of the windscreen and can detect other vehicles that are driving in the same direction or stationary. This will automatically trigger an emergency brake to stop the vehicle and avoid a collision entirely, or limit the consequences of an accident by reducing the speed of impact.

*Optional from Active level

 

ESP

New 2008 SUV ESP

All versions of the 2008 SUV have a high level of active safety and are equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Control) as standard. This comprises Traction Control (ASR), Stability Control (CDS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Anti-wheel lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).

ESP is combined with Hill Assist, which briefly immobilises the vehicle, giving you time to move your foot from brake to accelerator when starting the car on a slope.

BODY STRUCTURE

New 2008 SUV body structure

The 2008 SUV has an ultra-light body structure designed to absorb as much energy as possible from any impact. This minimises the consequences for passengers, pedestrians and vehicles.

As well as enhancing safety, this robust yet lightweight structure gives you livelier handling, optimised fuel consumption and greater driving pleasure.

New 2008 SUV airbags

AIRBAGS

The 2008 SUV includes six airbags as standard, offering extra protection for you and your passengers if you’re involved in an accident.

  • Two front airbags to protect the head and thorax of the driver and front passenger in the event of a frontal impact.
  • Two front side airbags to protect the driver and front passenger in the event of a side impact.
  • Two front and rear curtain airbags to protect the heads of the front and rear occupants.

In addition, front passenger seat airbag deactivation is available across the 2008 SUV range,  so that baby can travel in the front seat.

New 2008 SUV isofix fittings

ISOFIX CHILD SEAT ANCHOR POINTS

Keep your little ones as safe as possible in the back of the 2008 SUV, where there are two three-point ISOFIX fittings for child seats.

Two of the anchor points are at the back of the seat cushion and the third is in the back seat panel.

CORNERING ASSIST FOG LIGHTS*

New 2008 SUV cornering assist fog lights

In low beam or high beam, this function allows the front fog lights to illuminate the inside of a bend when the vehicle speed is below 25 mph. This gives you extra visibility when driving in town, on winding country roads, at junctions or when you are parking.

*Standard from Allure level

PEUGEOT CONNECT SOS

New 2008 SUV Connect SOS

Peugeot Connect SOS* is technology that could prove vital in an emergency.

Automatic emergency call: if the airbags inflate or the seat belt pre-tensioners are triggered, the vehicle automatically makes an emergency call on behalf of the driver. Peugeot Connect SOS* then locates the vehicle, establishes telephone communication with its occupants and arranges for the appropriate emergency service to be dispatched.

Manual emergency call: whether the victim or the witness of an emergency situation, the driver can call Peugeot Connect SOS* quickly by pressing the SOS button located on the dashboard (and holding for 3 seconds).

*Peugeot Connect SOS is optional on Active & Allure and standard on GT Line and subject to acceptance when ordering the vehicle. Terms and conditions apply.
