Engine / Fuel Type

Conventional vehicles

The tested model of Holden Epica was introduced in Australia during 2007 and had seat-mounted side airbags with head protection. Inflatable side curtains and electronic stability control (ESC) became standard on all variants from August 2008. The manufacturer provided evidence to ANCAP that the curtain-equipped Epica provides better protection in side impacts than the tested vehicle.

Dual front airbags, side airbags and curtains are standard equipment for the Series II. Antilock brakes (ABS) with electronic brake distribution (EBD) and ESC are also standard. Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to the driver and front passenger seats for the Series II.

The front seat buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belts. Pre-tensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. A three-point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat. This provides better protection than a two-point (lap) seat belt.
