The all new Peugeot 2008 crossover model has claimed an impressive five-star rating after its achievements in the Euro NCAP car safety tests.
Scoring highly in each part of the rigorous testing procedure, the maximum star rating has seen the car head to the top of its class for passenger safety - which will prove to be a popular factor for potential customers.
The model, which is based partially on the existing 208, produces similar quality safety statistics when compared to its older sibling.
Available in eight colours and four different trim levels - Access+, Active, Allure and Feline - the 2008 comes with the new generation three-cylinder 1.2 litre e-VTI petrol engine, which helps limit CO2 emissions to just 99g/km.
Helping to achieve the excellent NCAP rating is the advanced traction control system that helps drivers stay on the road in all weather systems - available as standard on the higher end Allure and Feline models.
A total of six airbags located in front of the driver, in the front passenger seat and in the rear passenger areas also help to increase the model's overall safety.
