Used Car Safety Report

The Holden Ute has been awarded a 3 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 Ute 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 passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The front part of the driver's floor was pushed rearwards 118mm. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 88mm and upwards 9mm. The dash moved 34mm towards the driver. The steering wheel hub moved rearwards 16mm, upwards 14mm and sideways 33mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 34mm rearwards. The roof had minimal deformation and the width of the driver's doorway shortened by 30mm. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were required to open the driver’s door.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and head contact was stable. The driver's knees hit the steering column and dash. The ignition switch barrel and a covered metal bracket at the end of the dash are potential sources of knee injury.
