Your safety is, of course, paramount to the design of any Peugeot car – and the 308 SW is no exception.
Designed to keep all the family as safe as possible, it’s no surprise it was awarded a 5* Euro NCAP rating.
The 308 SW’s Anti-Skid Regulation system incorporates Intelligent Traction Control to help stop you skidding dangerously when the road is slippery. It helps the front wheels regain their grip by controlling how much they can skid.
The car features driver and front passenger side and front airbags, and in the back there are curtain airbags for the front and rear windows, so everyone on board is safe.
Every part of the Peugeot 308 SW has been designed for maximum safety. That's one of the reasons it gained a 5* rating – the highest rating possible – from Euro NCAP, the most widely-recognised independent vehicle safety assessor in Europe.
The 308 SW comes with the latest-generation Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), which is able to detect the first signs of a sideways skid and helps reduce over steer. It keeps the car on course by reducing engine power and braking individual wheels. Department of Transport statistics reveal that cars fitted with ESP are 25% less likely to be involved in fatal accidents.
Hill starts are now a breeze, thanks to the 308 SW’s Hill Assist feature. When the car’s on a slope, it keeps the brakes on for about two seconds after you take your foot off, making it much easier for you to move off.
The overall driving experience is enhanced by dynamic cruise control, emergency collision alert and emergency collision braking system. Available as an option on Allure and GT Line versions and as standard on the GT version.
Peugeot Connect SOS will automatically let the emergency services know if the airbags in your 308 SW inflate, or the seatbelt pre-tensioners activate. It will also tell them exactly where you are, or you can contact them manually yourself by pressing the SOS button on the panel above your rear-view mirror. Peugeot Connect Assistance also brings you roadside assistance whenever you need it. Available as an option on all versions.
