Updated Colorado gets pedestrian cred

Holden’s latest Colorado has received a five-star ANCAP safety rating and a ‘good’ level of pedestrian protection.

AA Motoring Services general manager Stella Stocks says traditionally utes scored poorly in pedestrian protection tests.

“It’s fantastic to see Holden putting more emphasis on safety design elements outside the vehicle an area that many utes have struggled with in the past –  largely only receiving poor ratings,” she says.  

The updated model comes equipped with a raft of safety technologies as standard, including dual curtain and a driver knee airbag as standard. It also features antilock braking system (ABS), electronic stability control (ESC), emergency brake assist (EBA), and electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD).
