Holden’s new Trailblazer off-roader has been scored at the maximum 5-stars for safety by the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).

The model destined to replace the Colorado 7 in Holden’s line-up follows on from the Colorado pickup which was also awarded 5-stars for safety earlier this month.

However, the pickup actually pipped the SUV in its overall score by 0.4 points, with an overall score of 34.49 out of 37 compared with 34.89 for the updated Colorado.

Why? The Trailblazer scored 2.6 out of three points for its seatbelt reminder rating, while the Colorado was awarded the full three points.

Otherwise, the Trailblazer matched the Colorado in all areas, including 13.89 points out of 16 for frontal impact and the full 16 points for side impact.

The pole test scored both Colorado and Trailblazer the maximum two points, while whiplash protection was rated as ‘good’ (the maximum rating).

ANCAP earlier praised the Colorado’s pedestrian protection rating of ‘good’ (again, the maximum), and the same rating applies to the Trailblazer.

The 2017 Holden Trailblazer arrives in Australia soon - stay tuned to TMR for more.
