ANCAP SAFETY is taking a number of precautions to assist in minimising effects on the community. These measures include remote working arrangements for staff and restricted physical contact with the community, our members and stakeholders. These arrangements are not expected to adversely affect the important service we provide to Australian & New Zealand consumers, and ANCAP safety rating information can continue to be accessed via our website. Safety is our priority. Please stay safe.

Dual frontal, side chest and side head-protecting airbags (curtains) for front row occupants are standard. A driver knee airbag is optional in New Zealand. Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) are also standard on NZ variants.
