Holden naturally delighted with ANCAP result


Holden says it’s delighted with the five-star ANCAP safety rating for the popular Omega variant of the VE Commodore

ANCAP announced the rating today when it released its latest crash test results.

It says the result reflects the introduction of a steering column shroud energy absorber across the VE sedan range that helps to reduce driver knee injuries, and a passenger seatbelt reminder introduced on the Omega in October.

“These improvements are in addition to the front passenger side impact airbags and curtain airbags that were made standard across the range earlier this year.”

Holden boss, Mark Reuss (pictured), said from Melbourne that it was encouraging to receive the ANCAP endorsement. “We’ve always been very confident of this vehicle’s real world safety capabilities.”

Reuss says the passenger seatbelt reminder will become standard on all VE Commodores built from mid-2009.
