Peugeot Australia has stepped up in the active safety stakes with its products, which now include autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and a rear-view camera across its model line-up. Better yet, this is done without any increase in price!

“Autonomous emergency braking is a vital safety assist technology and Peugeot Australia is to be commended for this commitment to make AEB standard across its entire Australian model range. Safety is not a luxury and having AEB as standard provides enhanced safety to consumers,” said ANCAP chief executive officer James Goodwin.

The entry-level Peugeot 208 Active, in fact, has gotten A$200 (RM632) cheaper with the update, now starting at A$21,990 (RM69,549) in Australia before on-road costs. The 5008 seven-seater SUV will join the other end of the model line-up when it goes on sale in Australia next month, also with AEB.

Currently in Peugeot’s Malaysian model line-up, only the 308 THP comes with emergency collision braking, a form of autonomous emergency braking.
