2012 Peugeot 208 gains Five Start Euro NCAP Rating
2012 Peugeot 208 is one of the best cars for urban environment due to its smaller dimensions, but spacious cabin. Furthermore, the new Peugeot model now delivers even more comfortability.
Another advantage that it has is that it now features a new architecture which makes the 208 lighter by 110 kg on average compared to the 207. This leads of course to lower CO2 results and excellent fuel consumption.
It is also advantageous n terms of safety performance, which is now proven by the Five Star Rating it got by Euro NCAP. In fact, the new 208 is the first car in its segment to get the five stars.
One of the main reasons for this is not only the improvements of the body architecture made in the 208, but also the standard equipment it now features: ABS, ESP, six airbags, rear Isofix fixings, speed limiter, front seat belt warning, collapsible steering column, and more.
The structure contributes further to occupant's protection. It is made of aluminium absorption beam, very high strength steel and ultra-high strength steel panels.
In fact, the Euro NCAP result is the best proof of the high 208's level of safety protection in active and passive conditions.
