The Australasian New Car Assessment Program has announced local approval today for the 5-Star crash safety rating achieved by the 2012 Holden Barina in recent Euro NCAP tests.

Sold in Europe as the Chevrolet Aveo, the new Barina made its Australian debut at this year's Australian International Motor Show and will go on sale in October.

The Barina achieved top marks in the Euro NCAP tests, which shares its criteria with ANCAP. The small car's new 5-Star ANCAP rating also marks an improvement over the current model's 4-Star ANCAP rating.

The crash test results for the new Barina showed that the passenger compartment held its shape well, and the risk of serious chest and leg injury was ranked as slight.

The maximum score of 16 out of 16 was achieved in the side-impact test, and a further two points were awarded for the optional pole-impact test.

Full specifications for the Australian-delivered Holden Barina will be revealed next month. Holden has confirmed that six airbags will be fitted as standard, along with anti-lock brakes, electronic brakeforce distribution and electronic stability control.

Intelligent seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats, and pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash.

A three-point seat belt is fitted to the centre rear seat, providing better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.
