Peugeot, integrated safety

Peugeot asserts its commitment to make safety a key priority by devoting 10% of its Research & Development budget to road safety. A majority of Peugeot models obtained the maximum score of 5 stars during the crash-tests undertaken by Euro NCAP, an independent company that tests safety on European vehicles.

Primary safety, preventing accidents

Peugeot develops innovational driving-assistance systems for braking and road-hold: ABS, blind spot prevention system, static intersection lighting, Distance Alert... on-board a Peugeot vehicle, everything is integrated to prevent and to avoid accidents.

Secondary safety, protecting occupants

Peugeot prioritizes the protection of occupants if there is a risk of accident from the very moment its vehicles are designed. By optimizing its restraint systems, airbags and seats and by improving vehicle structure, Peugeot provides a real safety in response to the event of accident.

Tertiary safety, dealing with emergencies

Peugeot Connect SOS is a geolocated emergency call service. It accelerates the intervention of suitable rescue services when the situation so requires. If your pyrotechnic airbags or seatbelts activate, your vehicle automatically triggers an emergency call, with no intervention required by you.
