2017 Peugeot 3008 scores 5 Star ANCAP rating

The 2017 Peugeot 3008 will launch in Australia this week and kicks off with a 5 star ANCAP crash safety rating.

THE 2017 PEUGEOT 3008 has received a 5 star ANCAP safety rating ahead of its local launch in Australia this week. While the presence of a speed assistance system that relies on speed sign recognition to allow for speed limiter adjustment not all models of the 3008 are available with autonomous emergency braking.

The local rating of 5 stars follows the 5-star rating given to both the 3008 and 5008 (not sold in Australia) by Euro NCAP in late 2016.

“The Peugeot 3008 performed well in testing with high scores achieved in the side impact and whiplash tests,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Goodwin.

“As a standard offering across the range, all variants are fitted with an intelligent speed assistance system which uses a camera to identify signposted speed limits and allow the driver to set the speed limiter appropriately.

“A lane departure warning system is also standard, while some variants are available with a more advanced function which provides active lane keep assistance,” he said.

The 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to all 1.6 and 2.0 litre diesel and 1.6 litre petrol variants available in Australia and New Zealand.
