A Euro NCAP 5 star occupant protection rating confirms the 207 CC offers not only ultimate driving pleasure but also provides maximum protection for its occupants.
First the Peugeot 1007 re-wrote the Euro NCAP rule book by becoming the first car to exceed 36 points, and still is the only car to achieve this milestone. Now Peugeot’s new 207 CC sets another milestone by becoming the highest scoring super mini based convertible car.
Sharing the same platform as the Peugeot 1007 clearly has given the new Peugeot 207 CC inner strength, but adding an active roll over protection system exceeds the requirements of Euro NCAP.
The 207 CC borrows from the 407 the use of two impact absorption structures which distribute impact energy more efficiently in the event of a collision and also enhance repairability and pedestrian impact protection. This technology is not normally found on a super mini Coupé Cabriolet.
A strong structure and active roll over protection are not the only safety systems in the 207 CC’s armoury as it also has five airbags, pre-tensioning seat belts with force limiters and Isofix mountings for child protection on the passenger seat that comply with the new three-point fixing standards.
Active safety is also a strong point with the standard fitment on the GT model of ESP and directional automatic headlamps.
The new Peugeot 207 CC, was launched on to the UK market in March and is already being heralded as the star of the sector. It writes a new chapter in the design of small coupé cabriolet cars with its high quality, versatile interior space, stylish design and class leading safety.
