Holden 5 Star Line-Up Gains Another Member

Share on :


Holden’s Series II Captiva 7 SX diesel has secured a maximum five-star safety rating from the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).


Launched in February 2011, the Holden Series II Captiva range was enhanced with the introduction of six airbags – driver, front passenger, front side and curtain airbags – as standard on all models, an electric park brake and Hill Start Assist technology to prevent “roll-away” on inclines.

These features were added to Captiva’s already impressive array of active and passive safety technology including Electronic Stability Control system incorporating anti-lock braking, electronic brakeforce distribution, brake assist, traction control and active rollover protection.

All Captiva models are also fitted with a descent control system which maintains a slow speed for navigating steep downhill gradients.

Holden’s Vehicle Structure & Safety Integration Manager, Steve Curtis said it was great to receive a local endorsement for this globally successful car.

“We’ve been very confident in the Captiva’s safety credentials, particularly after the Chevrolet Captiva range was awarded a top five star rating from EuroNCAP in October,” Mr Curtis said.

“But it’s great to know that yet another Holden has earned the highest Australian safety rating.”

Captiva 7 SX diesel joins the Commodore, Cruze and Barina range which have all been awarded the maximum five star safety rating from ANCAP.
