Independent vehicle safety authority, ANCAP, released its first safety rating for the year, awarding five stars to the Holden Commodore.
The first imported Commodore model arrives onto the Australasian market with high safety scores.
“The vehicle scored well, achieving solid results across all areas of assessment,” said ANCAP CEO James Goodwin.
“Australian families and fleet buyers have long regarded the Commodore as a trusted local choice and the shift to overseas supply has further enhanced the model’s safety credentials,” he said.
“This next generation Commodore includes safety assist technologies not seen in its locally-produced predecessor, with standard-fit features such as autonomous emergency braking and active lane-keep assist.”
“This year we see a fresh approach to vehicle safety assessment and the presentation of results,” Goodwin said.
The ZB Holden Commodore achieved the following scores across the four key areas of assessment:
93% - Adult Occupant Protection
85% - Child Occupant Protection
78% - Pedestrian Protection
77% - Safety Assist
The Commodore shares its structure with that of the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia supplied to Europe, with locally supplied variants offering comparable safety performance.
A five star ANCAP safety rating applies to all Commodore liftback, sportwagon and tourer variants available across Australia and New Zealand.
