The new 2008 SUV offers a range of safety equipment to keep you and your passengers safe.

ACTIVE CITY BRAKE

i

Active City Brake* is a new technology which makes it possible to avoid an accident or reduce its seriousness if the driver fails to react. It works in urban conditions, at speeds of less than 20 mph. A short range sensor is fitted to the top of the windscreen and can detect other vehicles that are driving in the same direction or stationary. This will automatically trigger an emergency brake to stop the vehicle and avoid a collision entirely, or limit the consequences of an accident by reducing the speed of impact.

*Optional from Active level

 

ESP

All versions of new 2008 SUV have a high level of active safety and are equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Control) as standard. This comprises Traction Control (ASR), Stability Control (CDS), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA), Anti-wheel lock braking system (ABS) and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBFD).

ESP is combined with Hill Assist*, which briefly immobilises the vehicle, giving you time to move your foot from brake to accelerator when starting the car on a slope.

*Hill Assist is unavailable on the 1.2L PureTech 82 & 1.6L BlueHDi 75 engines

BODY STRUCTURE

The new 2008 SUV has an ultra-light body structure designed to absorb as much energy as possible from any impact. This minimises the consequences for passengers, pedestrians and vehicles.

As well as enhancing safety, this robust yet lightweight structure gives you livelier handling, optimised fuel consumption and greater driving pleasure.

AIRBAGS

The new 2008 SUV includes six airbags as standard, offering extra protection for you and your passengers if you’re involved in an accident.

  • Two front airbags to protect the head and thorax of the driver and front passenger in the event of a frontal impact.
  • Two front side airbags to protect the driver and front passenger in the event of a side impact.
  • Two front and rear curtain airbags to protect the heads of the front and rear occupants.

In addition, front passenger seat airbag deactivation is available across the new 2008 SUV range,  so that baby can travel in the front seat.

ISOFIX CHILD SEAT ANCHOR POINTS

Keep your little ones as safe as possible in the back of the new 2008 SUV, where there are two three-point ISOFIX fittings for child seats.

Two of the anchor points are at the back of the seat cushion and then thirds is in the back seat panel.

CORNERING ASSIST FOG LIGHTS*

In low beam or high beam, this function allows the front fog lights to illuminate the inside of a bend when the vehicle speed is below 25 mph. This gives you extra visibility when driving in town, on winding country roads, at junctions or when you are parking.
