Adult occupant

The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact and the protection offered to both driver and passenger was rated predominantly good. However, the passenger airbag was found to have been torn slightly during deployment, allowing it to vent in a way other than designed. Peugeot attributed the tear to incorrect splitting of the airbag cover in the dashboard and an improved design is now in production. Peugeot's tests indicated that the tear would not have influenced the characteristics of the airbag and that the protection offered was unaffected. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs and Peugeot showed that similar protection was provided to occupants of different sizes or those sat in different positions. Maximum points were scored in the side barrier impact but protection of the chest was marginal in the side pole test. Protection against whiplash injuries was also marginal, the car scoring no points in the most severe of the three whiplash tests.

Child occupant

The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward-facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear.


The bonnet provided poor protection in all areas which might be struck by an adult's head. For a child's head, the protection offered was predominantly poor but was good in some areas towards the centre of the bonnet. The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs.

Safety assist

Electronic stability control is fitted as standard equipment, as is a seatbelt reminder system for both front and rear seats. A speed limitation device is standard on some variants and optional on others.
