The tested model of Holden Barina was introduced in Australia and New Zealand in 2011. This ANCAP safety rating applies to all TM series hatch & sedan variants and all engines. It does not include the Barina “Classic” (TK) or the Barina Spark.
The left-hand-drive European model was tested by Euro NCAP. ANCAP was provided with information which showed that the Euro NCAP results apply to the Australasian model.
Dual frontal, side chest and side head airbags (curtains) are standard. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats.
