Holden Cruze hatch arriving in NZ with five-star safety

Holden’s Cruze hatchback will be arriving here in NZ shortly and will arrive with the highest possible five-star ANCAP safety rating.

Launching in November, the GM Holden designed and built Cruze hatch maintains the same safety standards set by the Series II Cruze sedan, which went on sale here earlier this year.

Like the sedan, the hatch receives the maximum safety rating thanks to a range of active and passive safety features included as standard.

Six airbags including driver and front passenger, front side impact and side curtain airbags, electronic stability control, anti-lock braking system, electronic brakeforce distribution, traction control and a collapsible pedal assembly system all come as standard kit.

The entire Cruze range benefits from a robust body structure and a advanced chassis system, which delivers accident avoidance capabilities. There’s also energy-absorbing load paths that protect the passenger safety cell and offer optimum protection in the event of a collision.

Holden New Zealand Managing Director, Jeff Murray said Holden has been working incredibly hard to provide yet another vehicle that has real world safety capabilities.

“We set high standards for Holden cars and the Cruze hatch has shown that we are on the right track and recognition of that is this five-star safety rating,” Mr Murray said.
