Crash Test

Peugeot 407 crash test. Courtesy of EuroNCAP5 Star Crash Test rating for the Peugeot 407.
The results of the crash tests by The European New Car Assessment Programme are proof that safety was high on the agenda when the new Peugeot 407 was on the drawing board.

Excerpt from the Euro NCAP test report.
– The 407 has a very strong and stable passenger safety cage. It scored close to the maximum number of available points in the frontal impact. The restraint systems and airbags, including a knee airbag for the driver, protected occupants and kept the driver’s chest and head away from the steering wheel. Side impact protection includes side airbags and a curtain airbag. Child protection was good but pedestrian protection proved to be average, with no protection given where an adult’s head would most likely strike. –
