Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 6 year and 10 year dummies was ADEQUATE, while the protection offered to all other critical body regions was GOOD.

Protection of both child dummies in the side impact test was GOOD with maximum points scored.

The Peugeot 508 is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the rear outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions.

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, though in the centre rear position, one of the booster seats could not be correctly installed and care is required when installing one of the selected convertible seats in forward facing mode.

Pedestrian Summary

The Peugeot 508 has an ‘active’ bonnet. Sensors detect when a pedestrian is struck and actuators lift the bonnet to provide greater clearance to stiff components in the engine bay. The vehicle was tested with the bonnet in the raised position and GOOD or ADEQUATE results were recorded over most of the bonnet area with POOR results recorded around the windscreen pillars and the base of the windscreen. The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD results at all test locations. Protection of the pelvis was mixed, with areas of GOOD and WEAK performance.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system offered ADEQUATE performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with MARGINAL to GOOD performance recorded in daylight scenarios and WEAK to MARGINAL performance in night-time scenarios. GOOD performance was also seen in
cyclist test scenarios with collisions avoided or mitigated at most test speeds. The system’s overall performance was classified as ADEQUATE.
