Peugeot places paramount importance on the safety of you and your passengers when you’re on the road and all of our vehicles incorporate advanced safety aid technologies. For this reason, the Peugeot 208 GTi hasn’t just been designed with powerful performance and head-turning aesthetics in mind – it also boasts a number of safety features which offer you peace of mind on the road.

High performance disk brakes

When it comes to safety in your Peugeot 208 GTi, no detail has been overlooked and your brakes are no exception. With your bespoke braking system featuring superior heat resistance and ventilated discs, you have peace of mind that your braking system will be able to quickly and efficiently respond to your every touch. The braking discs on your 208 GTi measure 302 mm in diameter at the front and 249 mm at the rear and are gripped by red floating callipers.Standard airbags

Peugeot place paramount importance on the safety of you and your family on the road which is why the design of the 208 GTi includes an impressive six airbags as a standard for the ultimate in protection in the event of a collision. The vehicle includes two front and two side airbags for the driver and front passenger while the rear passengers have the protection of two front and rear curtain airbags.

 Advanced wheelbase

The wheelbase of the Peugeot 208 GTi has been designed to optimise the ability of the vehicle to grip the road for optimal road handling and a precision drive. The 208 GTi wheelbase includes a finely tuned running gear, stiffened suspension and widened tracks (10mm at the front and 20mm at the rear). You’ll feel the difference when you get behind the wheel thanks to the easy handling and agility of the vehicle.

With the ESP as a standard feature of each Peugeot 208 GTi, you have the ultimate peace of mind on the road. The main features of your ESP include:

  1. Anti-Skid Regulation – helps to avoid dangerous skidding by reducing engine power and applying brakes to individual wheels.
  2. Emergency Brake Assist – maximum pressure will be used on the brake pedal if the driver fails to react.
  3. Anti-Lock Braking System – if you need to brake in an emergency, this technology will stop your wheels from locking up.
