Peugeot's 807 shares its body and major parts with the Citroen C8, Fiat Ulysse and Lancia Phedra. Though not tested, they are expected to give near-identical protection. The car has performed extremely well and only just missed achieving a five-star occupant safety rating. Its body withstood the front and side impacts providing good protection for those inside. It scored full marks in the side impact. In the frontal test, however, testers found that the 807ís fascia had hard points beneath it which could injure those in the front. Child protection was good, their restraints meeting most Euro NCAP performance limits, although the chest loading was a little high for the 3-year-old. Protection for pedestrians was poor. Peugeot says it intends to improve this on future models.
