Used Car Safety Report

The Holden Commodore has been awarded a 1 star Driver Protection rating in the latest Used Car Safety Rating (UCSR) report. UCSR are reported annually by the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). Ratings are estimated from data on real crashes reported to police in Australia and New Zealand and provide a very high level of confidence. The UCSR report classifies cars according to where their rating lies in relation to a best performance benchmark. The Driver Protection rating measures the relative safety of cars in preventing serious injury to their own drivers in crashes.

The Holden Commodore also received a protection for other road users rating in the UCSR report. The protection for other road users rating indicates the level of protection that a vehicle provides for other unprotected road users (other car drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists or motorcyclists) in the event of a crash.

The HOLDEN COMMODORE VX performed marginally in the offset crash test (score 3.77 out of 16). The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well but there was a moderate risk of serious head injury for the driver. Lower leg protection was poor for the driver.

The vehicle performed better in the side impact crash (score 13.37 out of 16).


Safety Feature Summary

The safety feature information below is subject to change without notice. For up to date safety feature specifications for all variants, please see the safety feature table to the right or contact the manufacturer.

A driver's airbag is standard equipment. A passenger front airbag is optional but was not fitted to the tested vehicles. Side airbags are standard on some variants and optional on others but were not fitted to the tested vehicles.

The front seat belt buckles are mounted on the seats and the upper anchorages are adjustable. These features improve the fit of the seat belt. Pretensioners are fitted to front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a severe crash. The centre rear seat has a 3-point seat belt.

In a severe crash several emergency mode features are activated - fuel pump and engine are turned off, doors unlock and the dome light turns on.

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well in the offset crash test. The front part of the driver's floor was pushed rearwards 150mm and was folded under the driver's foot. The brake pedal moved rearwards 140mm. The dash moved 80mm towards the driver. The roof buckled upwards slightly above the driver and the width of the driver's doorway shortened by 50mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag started to cushion the head of the driver but the steering column suddenly moved upwards and contributed to the driver's forehead striking the steering wheel through the airbag. There was a moderate risk of serious head injury. During rebound the back of the driver's head hit the centre pillar. The passenger was well restrained but chest loads were high. The sharp, stiff steering column adjuster bracket poses a hazard to both knees of the driver.

The centre pillar and the side doors were pushed inwards substantially. The driver's seat was pushed sideways but the seat anchorages held.

The back of the driver's head glanced the centre pillar. Rebound was well controlled.

The vehicle was not eligible for a Pole Impact Test since it did not have head-protecting side airbags. This test can earn eligible vehicles an extra two points, giving a maximum possible overall score of 34 points.
