The passenger compartment remained stable in the impact. Dummy reading indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger. Peugeot were able to show that a similar level of protection would be provided to occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions.
The 308CC scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests.
The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. The presence of ISOFIX anchorages in the rear seats was not clearly indicated.
The bumper scored maximum points for the protection offered to pedestrians' legs. However, the bonnet surface offered predominantly poor protection to the head of a struck child or adult.
