New Holden Astra launches with 5 star safety

Leading independent vehicle safety advocate, the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), today released a 5 star ANCAP safety rating for the new Holden Astra which launches locally later this month.

“The new Astra will enter showrooms with a 5 star ANCAP safety rating providing another new option for consumers in the competitive small car segment,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Goodwin.

Structurally, the Astra performed well across the range of tests. Pedestrian protection also rated as ‘Good’. The bumper test area scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians’ legs with good results seen at all test points. Protection provided to the pelvic region was also good.

This safety rating applies to RS and RS-V hatch variants which come with autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane support systems (LSS) as a standard feature. The Astra R is unrated.

“Real world safety benefits are being achieved by these important safety technologies and we encourage consumers to choose a model with these technologies fitted,” Mr Goodwin added.
