  • Maximum 5 star rating in Euro NCAP occupant rating
  • 4 star rating in child protection
Peugeot’s newly launched 407 has achieved a 5 star score in the latest round of Euro NCAP (European New Car Assessment Programme) crash tests, announced in Prague yesterday.

The new Peugeot 407 achieved a coveted five stars for occupant protection and 4 stars for child protection.

The NCAP assessment, which is seen as a significant benchmark for the success of new cars, will undoubtedly help Peugeot return to dominance within the upper-medium segment of the new car market. With its bold, sporting design, Peugeot has given its new range a high-tech specification that provides character, driving pleasure and safety in equal measure.

With its dynamically engineered chassis featuring new double wishbone front suspension and multi-link rear suspension, comprehensive active and passive safety, and an advanced engine line-up that includes refined and powerful petrol engines with new Euro IV diesel technology, the 407 takes its market segment into new territory. And with prices starting from as little as £14,750 on the road, the 407 offers outstanding new levels in safety with seven airbags as standard on all models.
