crew cab range has become the latest Holden to be awarded a maximum five-star safety rating from the Australasian New
Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP).
Launched last month, Holden's new light commercial vehicle has 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.
Holden’s Executive Director of Sales, Marketing and Aftersales, John Elsworth said the crew cab range accounted for
approximately 80 per cent of Colorado sales therefore it was great to get this important third party endorsement for this
“Today’s LCVs serve a dual purpose - they are a week day work horse but often perform the duties of an SUV at the
week-end so it was imperative that Colorado included increased standard passenger comfort and safety,” said Mr
“Colorado has earned a well-deserved reputation as a hardworking, solid, safe and reliable light commercial vehicle
and this announcement will further enhance that status.”
“We’ve been thrilled with the response to Colorado, it’s generated genuine excitement across our dealer network and
in the marketplace and this announcement cements what a great addition the all-new Colorado is to the Holden
ANCAP Chairman, Mr Lauchlan McIntosh congratulated Holden on the stellar achievements saying it was satisfying to see
manufacturers lifting the safety of light commercial vehicles.
