The first imported Holden Commodore model has arrived in Australia with a 5-star rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).

The ZB model achieved a 93% adult occupant protection score and 85% child occupant score. It achieved 78% and 77% for pedestrian protection and safety assist, respectively.

“The vehicle scored well, achieving solid results across all areas of assessment,” said ANCAP Chief Executive, James Goodwin. “Australian families and fleet buyers have long regarded the Commodore as a trusted local choice and the shift to overseas supply has further enhanced the model’s safety credentials. This next generation Commodore includes safety assist technologies not seen in its locally-produced predecessor, with standard-fit features such as autonomous emergency braking and active lane-keep assist.”

The Commodore shares its structure with that of the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia supplied to Europe, with locally-supplied variants offering comparable safety performance.

The 5-star ANCAP safety rating applies to all Commodore liftback, sportwagon and tourer variants available across Australia and New Zealand.
