The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has awarded the full 5-star safety rating to Holden’s updated Colorado pickup as the new model debuts in Australia this week.

The rating applies to all variants, and the Program praised the ute for its “impressive” pedestrian protection score.

“Mid-cycle updates for cosmetic purposes are common across all makes and models but it is pleasing to see Holden has made mid-cycle safety improvements to their popular light commercial model,” ANCAP CEO, James Goodwin, said.

“The stand out element in our assessment of this model is its pedestrian protection score, entering the ‘Good’ range with ease. This is a marked turnaround for vehicles of this type where historically, we have seen poor results.”

Mr Goodwin said the updated Colorado was just the second pickup to achieve a ‘good’ rating by ANCAP for pedestrian safety.

Improvements include changes to the ute’s airbag configuration and restraint system, while the redesigned front end has assisted with the upgraded pedestrian safety score.

Whiplash protection was also rated at ‘good’, and the Colorado scored the maximum 16 points in the side impact test. Overall, the updated model scored 34.89 from a possible 37 points.

Previously, single and space-cab variants were rated at 4-stars by ANCAP. With the updated model, all Colorado variants will carry a 5-star rating when they arrive in showrooms from next month.
