This model of Holden Colorado was introduced in Australia in June 2012. This 4 star safety rating applies to all variants of the single cab and space cab Colorados. A separate rating is available for the crew cab variant.

The Colorado scored 10.20 out of 16 in the offset crash test. The passenger compartment held its shape well. Protection from serious chest and leg injury was marginal for the driver and passenger.

The vehicle was awarded a default score of 16 out of 16 in the side impact crash test. A further 2 points were scored in the side pole test.

Important note: ANCAP conducted crash tests of the crew cab (dual cab) variant of the Colorado. Holden provided ANCAP with technical information about the crash performance of the single cab and space cab variants and this rating is based partly on that information.


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 head-protecting side curtains are standard equipment. Antilock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and electronic stability control (ESC) are also standard. An advanced seat belt reminder is fitted to the driver seat.

Single pretensioners are fitted to the front seat belts to reduce slack in the event of a crash. The crew cab variant has dual pretensioners.

Frontal Offset Crash Test Results

Region Score Score Type Maximum Score
Frontal Offset* 10.2 pts (out of 16)
Head/Neck 4 pts
Chest 1.98 pts
Upper Legs 2 pts
Lower Legs 2.22 pts

The passenger compartment held its shape well in the offset crash test. The accelerator pedal moved rearwards by 49mm and upwards 4mm. The steering wheel hub moved 2mm rearwards and 20mm upwards. The front ("A") pillar moved 2mm rearwards. All doors remained closed during the crash.

In the ANCAP crash test of the crew cab variant the occupant restraint system prevented any knee contacts and no deductions were applied. The single and space cab variants had increased risk of knee injury due to the knees making contact with dash and steering column components and so deductions were applied.

The side impact test normally used by ANCAP simulates a small car striking the driver's door of the vehicle under test. Experience shows that large vehicles like the Colorado can be expected to perform well in this test so ANCAP has decided to award a full score of 16 for these vehicles instead of conducting a crash test.

The vehicle scored the maximum two points in the pole side impact test.
