Whiplash Protection Crash Test Image

Child Protection Test

In the frontal offset test, protection of the neck of the 10 year dummy was ADEQUATE, while the protection offered to all other critical body regions of both the 10 and 6 year child dummies was GOOD.

Protection of both child dummies in the side impact test was GOOD, with maximum points scored.

The Holden Acadia is fitted with lower ISOFix anchorages on the second row outboard seats and top tether anchorages for all rear seating positions (2nd and 3rd row).

Installation of typical child restraints available in Australia and New Zealand showed that most child restraints could be accommodated in most rear seating positions, though the Type A capsule did not meet ANCAP’s criteria and must be installed with care.

Pedestrian Summary

The bonnet provided GOOD or ADEQUATE results over most of its surface with some WEAK and POOR results recorded at the base of the windscreen, on the windscreen pillars and the leading edge of the bonnet. The bumper provided mixed results for its protection of pedestrians’ legs, with GOOD and MARGINAL results, while protection of the pelvis was GOOD.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system is capable of detecting and reacting to vulnerable road users including pedestrians and cyclists. The AEB system offered ADEQUATE performance in tests of its effectiveness in pedestrian test scenarios, with some GOOD performance recorded in daylight scenarios and some MARGINAL and WEAK performance in night-time scenarios. In cyclist test scenarios, the AEB system offered GOOD performance.
