Must Have Safety Features In Your New Car

At Mantello PEUGEOT, we understand the importance of protecting yourself and those around you when you’re out on the road. Awareness of your car’s features and the safety they provide is imperative for picking out your next vehicle and ensuring it meets your personal safety needs and preferences.

These features are a must-have for any safety-concerned driver. 

Situational Awareness 

Automatic Emergency Braking

Offered as Active Safety Brake and Active City Brake (on selected models), this safety feature leaves nothing to chance. Springing into action when it detects a delayed reaction by the driver and a potential collision, this system takes control of the vehicle’s speed and reduces it to suit the surrounding activity.

PEUGEOT vehicles, such as our PEUGEOT 3008 SUV, are equipped with a combination of LIDAR sensors and distance detection cameras to give you the ultimate collision prevention tool. Its constant alertness to possible obstacles and the surrounding vehicles and pedestrians’ activity makes it a safety feature to prioritise for your next vehicle. 

Active Lane Keep Assistance

Utilising the camera mounted on the windshield, this system detects the road’s traffic lanes to determine the vehicle's position within its lane. If it detects drifting in the vehicle’s trajectory and placement within their lane, it will alert the straying driver to realign their steering and gently take over to steer the vehicle back into its place. 

The lane crossing prevention that the Lane Departure Warning provides drivers with a helping hand on their repetitive work commutes and distracted days. 


Grip Control

Made for varying terrain, Mantello PEUGEOT vehicles consist of multiple traction modes to safely deliver our customers to any destination. The PEUGEOT 2008 SUV consists of a range of Grip Control modes that make it the safest car for any condition or terrain. 

  • Standard mode - built for all regular road conditions and trips. 
  • Sand mode - functions by allowing for the two front wheels to wheel spin simultaneously to reduce the risk of getting stuck. Designed for adventurous drivers. 
  • Snow mode - utilised adaptive spin for the front wheels to maintain necessary traction in challenging weather conditions. 
  • Off-road mode - This assigned the highest level of torque to the most stable wheels in order to cope with the slippery conditions made by dirt tracks, wet grass and mud. 
  • Esp off mode - gifts the driver with the freedom to take control full of their traction at speeds up to 50km/h. 

Protected Passengers


Since becoming mandatory in 1970, airbags have become a vital safety feature in vehicles. At Mantello PEUGEOT we don’t leave anything to chance. Vehicles such as the PEUGEOT 5008 SUV consist of 6 airbags to keep you and your loved ones safe in the moments that matter. 

  • Side curtain airbags reside in the front of the vehicle for side protection 
  • A front airbag for the passenger for frontal protection
  • A front airbag for the driver for frontal protection
  • Side curtain airbags in the second row for the protection of back seat passengers. 

Electronic Stability Control

At Mantello PEUGEOT, we understand that maintaining control in moments of emergency steering can be difficult. Electronic Stability Control takes over in these hard manoeuvres and assists you to get out of these situations safely. ESC takes over and breaks individual wheels along with reducing your speed to safely give you back control. 

The PEUGEOT Partner utilises this safety feature to keep you stable and on the road no matter what size vehicle you need.
