Used Car Safety Report

The Holden Barina 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.

Driver Protection Rating
Rating Result
5 Star Driver Protection Excellent
4 Star Driver Protection Good
3 Star Driver Protection Marginal
2 Star Driver Protection Poor
1 Star Driver Protection Very Poor

The Holden Barina 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 tested model of Holden Barina was introduced in Australia late in 2005.

The Barina scored 4.39 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment structure was compromised. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was poor for the driver.

The vehicle scored 10.51 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. There was a moderate risk of serious chest and abdomen injury for the driver.


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.

Dual front airbags are standard equipment. ABS brakes are optional. Side airbags are not available in Australia. 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.

Pre-tensioners 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. This provides better protection than a two point seat belt.

Frontal Offset Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 4.39 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 0 pts
Upper Legs 1.39 pts
Lower Legs 0 pts

The passenger compartment structure was compromised in the offset crash test. The brake pedal moved rearwards by 332mm and upwards 110mm. It was designed to release in this type of crash to reduce leg injury risk, but failed to do so. The steering wheel column released by design and no displacement modifiers were applied. The front ("A") pillar moved 121mm rearwards. 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 but contact was unstable, with the head rolling off the side of the airbag. Steering column and dash components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag. No passenger knee contacts were evident.

The tested model of Holden Barina (Model Year 2009) was introduced in Australia in mid 2008. This 4 star rating only applies to the 3 door hatch which had safety-related improvements for cars built from May 2008. The 5 door hatch and sedan have received similar safety-related improvements as the 3 door hatch but these bodystyles have not been tested by ANCAP.

The Barina scored 9.03 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was marginal for the driver.

The vehicle scored 14.85 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. There was a slight risk of serious chest and pelvis injury for the driver.


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.

Dual front airbags and side airbags with head-protection are standard equipment. Antilock brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) are optional. Electronic stability control (ESC) is not available. An advanced seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat. 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 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. This provides better protection than a two point (lap) seat belt.

Frontal Offset* 9.03 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 3 pts
Chest 2.34 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 1.69 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape reasonably well but there was buckling in the roof, door and sill which indicated it was reaching its limit. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 108mm and upwards 9mm. The steering wheel hub moved 62mm rearward, 19mm downward and 14mm sideways. The steering column mounts broke away by design. The front ("A") pillar moved 88mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash. After the crash tools were needed to manipulate the lock mechanism of the driver door. The door then opened with high manual effort.

The airbag cushioned the head of the driver but contact was unstable, with the head rolling off the side and striking the door. Steering column components were a potential source of injury for the driver's knees. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

An optional pole test is available for vehicles that are within reach of a 5 star rating and have head-protecting side airbags for extra protection in severe side impacts. The pole test can earn an extra 2 points. Although the Barina has these devices it was not eligible for a pole test as it needed more than 2 points to reach 5 stars.
