New Holden Colorado scores 5 star ANCAP rating… How does it compare?

The new Holden Colorado has scored a 5 star ANCAP rating realising 34.89 out of 37 for dual cab and crew cab models.

THE NEW HOLDEN COLORADO has scored 34.89 out of 37 to realise a 5 star ANCAP safety rating (dual-cab and crew cab models only, single-cab models scored 33.89/37 but still rate as 5 stars). The new ute also received a ‘Good’ for its pedestrian safety rating. This score puts the Colorado towards the top of the table when compared with its key competitors.

“Mid-cycle updates for cosmetic purposes are common across all makes and models but it is pleasing to see Holden has made mid-cycle safety improvements to their popular light commercial model,” said James Goodwin, ANCAP CEO.

The improvements made to the Colorado include changes to the front structure, airbag configuration and restraint system.

The fact of the matter is that the Ford Ranger is still better than any of them!! No wonder it’s the biggest selling VEHICLE in NZ, even topping the perennial No. 1, the Toyota Corolla. As someone who’s driven a Ranger for the past two and a half years, I certainly know WHY!! One of the best vehicles of any sort that I’ve ever driven, and I’ve driven 2 million kilometres.

I still can’t understand why all of these trucks persist with drum brakes and how can they get a 5 star safety rating with drum brakes?

Drum brakes only on the rear, Ken. But I can tell you the brakes on the Ranger are bloody superb, even when fully loaded and towing a boat.
