ACTIVE CITY BRAKE

The 208 GTi is always looking out for you. It features the new Active City Brake (Emergency Urban Collision Braking System technology), which helps avoid accidents or make them less serious. If you’re driving at speeds under 20 mph and the car in front stops suddenly, it automatically applies the brakes. It’s available with both the GTi and GTi by Peugeot Sport.

ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAMME

ELECTRONIC STABILITY PROGRAMME

One of the most advanced safety features available, ESP gives you added peace of mind:

  • ASR (Anti-Skid Regulation)
  • EBA (Emergency Brake Assist), which applies maximum brake pressure when you depress the brake pedal
  • ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), which prevents the wheels from locking up in the event of emergency braking, keeping you in control
  • BFD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution), which distributes brake force between the front and rear wheels.

AIRBAGS

Drive with confidence, knowing that you and your passengers are protected with six airbags as standard. Driver and front passenger protection includes two front and two side airbags, while two front and rear curtain airbags protect those in the front and rear seats.

PEUGEOT CONNECT SOS & ASSISTANCE

PEUGEOT CONNECT SOS & ASSISTANCE

Peugeot Connect SOS is now in use in most major European countries, including the UK, and is technology that could prove vital in an emergency.

  • Automatic emergency call: if the airbags inflate or the seat belt pretensioners are triggered, the vehicle automatically makes an emergency call on behalf of the driver. Peugeot Connect SOS then locates the vehicle, establishes telephone communication with its occupants and arranges for the appropriate emergency service to be dispatched.
     
  • Manual emergency call: whether the victim or the witness of an emergency situation, the driver can call Peugeot Connect SOS quickly by pressing the SOS button located on the dashboard (and holding for 3 seconds).
