Holden’s all-new small SUV, the Trax, has been awarded a maximum
five-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Programme (ANCAP).
To be released mid-September, the new Trax boasts numerous standard safety features across the range including six
airbags, a rear view camera and rear parking sensors and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) incorporating Anti-lock
Braking System (ABS), brake assist, electronic brake distribution and traction control.
Ensuring safer transport for children, Trax also includes the ISOFIX child seat anchorage system, an international
system for attaching child restraints to vehicles that assists in correct seat fitment. The inclusion of ISOFIX on the
Trax means that all new Holden vehicles now feature ISOFIX as standard.
Holden Manager, Vehicle Structure & Safety Integration, Steve Curtis said it was great to receive a local
endorsement for this new model.
“We’ve been very confident in the Trax’s safety credentials, particularly after the global vehicle was awarded a
top five star rating in Europe and Korea.”
“This is a great result and one that reflects Holden’s commitment to achieving the highest level of real-world
Trax provides a strong structure that comprises high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels, a reinforced safety cage
and impact-absorbing crush zones. This structure is designed to absorb the energy from a crash and help preserve the
structural integrity of the occupant compartment.
Further, to meet European standards for protecting pedestrians against head injuries in the event of a crash, Holden
Trax uses energy-absorbing materials in the bonnet. Other energy-absorbing techniques for protecting pedestrians in the
event of a collision include the strategic use of air space between the bonnet and hard objects underneath – such as the
battery and engine – that could injure pedestrians.
