Driver Protection rating based on analysis of real world crashes.



Used Car Safety Report

The Holden Statesman has been awarded a 4 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 Commodore sedan was tested by ANCAP in 2008. Holden provided evidence to ANCAP that Statesman and Caprice variants can be expected to provide comparable occupant protection to the Commodore. This 5-star ANCAP rating applies to all Statesman and Caprice variants built from 31 August 2009, when a passenger seat belt reminder was introduced.

The vehicle scored 13.45 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape very well. There was a slight risk of serious chest and lower leg injury for the driver.

The vehicle scored 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test and a further 2 points in the optional pole test.


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, side airbags and head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. Advanced seat belt reminders are fitted to both front seats. 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 Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 13.45 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 2.7 pts
Upper Legs 4 pts
Lower Legs 2.76 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape very well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 7mm and the brake pedal moved rearwards 4mm. The steering wheel hub moved forwards 59mm (as it was designed to do, to reduce injury risk), downwards 61mm and sideways 17mm. The front ("A") pillar moved 3mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash.

After the crash all doors could be opened with normal effort. The airbag cushioned the head of the driver and contact was stable. There were no knee hazards with the revised steering column design. The passenger's head was cushioned by the airbag.

The Commodore was eligible for an optional pole impact test, since it had head-protecting side airbags and it was within reach of a 5 star rating. The manufacturer decided to go ahead with the pole test and the vehicle earned a further two points.

1-Star Pedestrian Rating

Pedestrian Summary

A separate pedestrian impact test is conducted. This test estimates injuries to pedestrians struck by a vehicle travelling at 40 km/h. The more stars the better (maximum 4 stars).

The bonnet provided fair to marginal protection for many of the adult and child head zones. Leg results were uniformly poor, and performance could be improved in this area.
