Important note: The seat belt system of the Peugeot 306 was upgraded in 1998. The current Australian vehicle is likely to provide different levels of protection to those described on this page.

Model History and Safety features:

A driver's airbag is standard equipment in Australia. A passenger airbag is standard on some variants and optional on others. Side airbags are also available.

The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. The front seat belts have pretensioners to reduce slack in the event of a severe crash.

Overall Evaluation: 3 Stars:

The PEUGEOT 306 perform marginally in the offset crash test (score 7.72 out of 16). The passenger compartment was moderately deformed. There was a moderate risk serious chest injury for the driver.

The vehicle performed better in the side impact crash (score 10.04 out of 16) but there was a moderate risk of life threatening chest injury for the driver.

Frontal Offset Crash Test:

Body Region Point Scores:
Head/neck: 3.00 // points available 4.00
Chest: 0.83 // points available 4.00
Upper legs: 0.94 // points available 4.00
Lower legs: 2.96 // points available 4.00
Score: 7.72 // points available 16.00

The passenger compartment was moderately deformed in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards 13cm. The roof buckled upwards above the driver and the width of the driver's doorway shortened by 17cm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash high manual effort was required to open the drivers door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and protection was good. The head started to roll off the side of the airbag but recovered. The passenger's head did not hit anything.

Modifiers for offset test scores:

The score generated from driver dummy data may be modified where the protection for different sized occupants or occupants in different seating positions, or accidents of slightly different severity, can be expected to be worse than that indicated by the dummy readings or deformation data alone. In any single body region, the score may reduce by up to a maximum of two points.

Front Offset Test Modifier (Reduction) Point Scores:
Head Steering col. movement: 1.00
Chest A-pillar movement: 1.46
Upper leg Variable & conc. loading: 2.00 L & R

Side Impact Crash Test:

Body Region Point Scores:
Head: 4.00 // points available 4.00
Chest: 0.60 // points available 4.00
Abdomen: 2.13 // points available 4.00
Pelvis: 3.31 // points available 4.00
Score: 10.04 // points available 16.00

The centre pillar and the side doors were pushed inwards moderately.

The driver's chest hit a hard region of the door trim and protection was marginal. The abdomen hit the arm rest.

The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points, giving a maximum possible overall score of 34 points.

Door Opening during the Impact:

When a door opens in a side barrier test or a pole test, a minus one-point modifier will be applied to the score for that test. A one-point modifier will be applied for every door (including the tailgate) that opens.

Door Opening Forces after the Impact:

A check is made to ensure that the doors on the non-struck side can be opened. The doors on the struck side are not opened.

Pole Test:

The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points, giving a maximum possible overall score of 34 points.

A one point modifier is applied if the head protection airbag does not deploy fully in the designed manner.

Overall Pedestrian rating 6.25 points out of 36 (17.4%)
