Holden utes now pack six airbags

HOLDEN UTED SIX AIRBAGS

Holden is looking to boost its safety credentials in NZ by launching the first utility vehicle to offer six airbags as standard across the range.

Holden’s 2010 model year ute will introduce side impact and curtain airbags as standard equipment on all ute models.

The entire MY10 VE and WM range, including utes, also receive a steering column shroud energy absorber that helps to reduce driver knee injuries and a passenger seat belt reminder.

The combination of front, side and curtain airbags, together with ESC as standard across the range makes Holden utes a safe choice in the light commercial segment.

GM Holden Director of Safety and Integration, Ian Butler, said making six airbags standard across the entire Ute range was a positive step forward for occupant safety in the LCV market.

“Holden believes that occupant safety is just as important in the LCV market as it is in the family sedan market,” Mr Butler said.

“Safety features are not something that should be limited to vehicle types or models and should be standard on all our vehicles, including those in the light commercial market.

The five-star rated MY10 range – Commodore sedans, Sportwagon, Statesman and the upgraded Ute will go on sale later this month.
