The 307's strong safety cell for passengers remained intact in the tests. The driver's door opened normally after the frontal impact and the footwell retained its shape. During the impact, the driver's chest hit the steering wheel and the passenger's head struck the facia. Both events increased the injury risk to vulnerable body areas. The results for the side impact test were very good, however. The passenger's frontal airbag can be de-activated via a switch so that a rear-facing child restraint can be installed on the front passenger's seat. A second key could be used to deactivate the airbag while the engine is running. Even so, the warning given on the instrument panel remained correct.
