Adult occupant

The Peugeot 2008 is structurally almost identical to the 208 on which it is based. Euro NCAP has reviewed data that shows equivalence in test results between the two vehicles in many tests. Where these tests have not changed fundamentally since 2012, when the Peugeot 208 was assessed, the results of the 208 have been carried over. For those areas where the assessment has changed significantly, new tests have been done to assess the performance of the 2008. Crash data has been reviewed that shows the 2008 performs equivalently in the adult occupant tests to the 208.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled by means of a switch to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in the passenger seat. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not clear and the system was not rewarded. There were clear warnings of the dangers of using a reaward facing restraint in that seating position without having deactivated the airbag. A check of the installation of child restraints showed that all restraint types for which the car is designed could be properly installed and accommodated in the 2008.


The methodology for testing pedestrian protection has changed since the 208 was assessed in 2012, and new tests have been done. The bonnet surface showed good or adequate protection over most of its surface, with poor results recorded only at the base of the windscreen and on the stiff windscreen pillars. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs while the front edge of the bonnet gave good or marginal protection to the pelvis region.

Safety assist

The 2008 has electronic stability control as standard equipment, and met Euro NCAP's test requirements. The car also has a standard-fit, driver-set speed limitation device and the front are equipped with a seatbelt reminder.
