Active City Brakei(Emergency Urban Collision Braking System) technology is a new feature that operates at speeds of 30 km/h or less if the driver is unable to react, helping avoid accidents on city streets or making them less serious.
A short-range laser sensor (Lidar) installed at windscreen level detects obstacles such as a stationary vehicle or one driving in the same traffic directioni. This sensor is capable of automatically applying maximum brake pressurei, thereby helping avoid a collision or limit its consequences by reducing the impact speed. In certain circumstances, this system will even be able to go as far as automatically stopping the vehicle altogether, thereby avoiding a collision with the vehicle in front.
The compact SUV PEUGEOT 2008 comes with switchable ESP (Electronic Stability Control) fitted as standard, comprising ASR (anti-skid), DSC (Dynamic Stability Control), EBA (Emergency Brake Assist), ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and EBFD (Electronic Brake Force Distribution).
Depending on the engine chosen, ESP can be combined with Hill Assisti, which briefly immobilises the vehicle, giving you time to move your foot from the brake to the accelerator when starting the car up on a slope.
The new SUV PEUGEOT 2008 has an ultra-light body structure conceived for optimum precision. It was designed to maximise the absorbtion of energy arising out of different types of impact, thereby minimising their consequences for passengers, vehicles and pedestrians.
The result is a lightweight, robust vehiclei that delivers livelier handling, optimised fuel consumption and enhanced driving pleasure.
In the event of a collision, the compact new SUV PEUGEOT 2008 includes 6 airbags as standard, offering extra protection for the occupants:
• 2 front airbags to protect the head and thorax of the driver and front passenger in the event of a frontal impact.
• 2 front side airbags to protect the driver and front passenger in the event of a side impact.
• 2 front and rear curtain airbags to protect the heads of the front and rear occupants.
As dipped-beam headlamps or daytime running lights, when the turn indicator is activated or the steering wheel turned beyond a certain angle, this functioni allows the front fog lamps to light up the interior of a curve when driving at speeds below 40 km/h (e.g. when driving in town, on winding roads, at junctions or during parking manoeuvres).
