Colorado Crew Cab with Bull Bar Retains Five-Star Safety Featured

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has confirmed the all-new Colorado crew cab range will retain its maximum five-star safety rating when fitted with Holden's genuine accessory bull bar.

After assessing technical evidence in relation to the bull bar’s safety performance, ANCAP announced that the popular aftermarket equipment would not affect the vehicle’s safety rating.  The 5 star ANCAP safety rating applies to the crew cab range only.

Holden’s Manager for Vehicle Structure & Safety Integration, Steve Curtis said it was welcome news for private and fleet customers alike where the bull bar was often an essential tool of trade.

“Colorado’s accessories were engineered and developed locally by Holden, and were fully tested to ensure the highest possible levels of functionality, integration and safety performance,” Curtis said.

“The bull bar was subject to rigorous crash and impact tests to ensure that it meets or exceeds Holden’s and Australia’s highest safety standards.

“One of the many advantages of a genuine Holden accessory like this is that they are included in a virtual and physical crash assessment program which includes intensive development, testing and validation.”

Launched in June, the new light commercial vehicle boasts a comprehensive list of active and passive safety features including Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), driver and front passenger airbags and full length curtain airbags standard across the range.

Colorado benefits from a robust frame and body structure constructed from high-strength steel and a technically advanced chassis system which delivers enhanced accident avoidance capabilities.  Full length side impact protection beams reinforce the passenger safety cell and offers optimum protection in the event of a collision.
