The passenger was very well restrained by the seatbelt and his knees did not contact the dashboard during the impact. There was insufficient pressure in the driver's airbag to prevent the dummy's head from 'bottoming-out' the airbag onto the steering wheel. The knee airbag protected the driver's knees and femurs in the test. Peugeot showed Euro NCAP the results of tests that demonstrated that the airbag would also protect the femurs of larger or smaller occupants from hard structures in the dashboard. However, in tests for large occupants sitting very far forward with the knees close to the dashboard, forces applied to the lower leg, just below the knee, suggested that rather more force could be transmitted through the knee joint than is desirable.
The 207CC scored maximum points for its performance in the side impact and pole tests.
For the frontal and side impacts, Euro NCAP sets the front seats to the mid position for front/rear adjustment. However, with the front seats in that position, it was not possible to fit Peugeot's recommended child restraint system into the rear seats. Rather than compromise the validity of the adult occupant results by moving the front seats forward, Euro NCAP tested the 207CC with no child restraints and cannot, therefore, publish a child protection rating for the car.
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs.
