The brand new Holden VF Commodore has been recently rated with five stars by the safety specialists at ANCAP, after being crash tested.

Good news for those of you looking to buy the new Holden VF Commodore in Australia, or its U.S. cousin, the Chevrolet SS, because the model has been recently rated with a five-star safety rating, by ANCAP, after being crash tested. The new Holden VF Commodore has scored 35.06 points out of a total of 37, with the front crash test being the most successful, with 14.06 points out of 16. The rating can be applied to all VF Commodore versions, the sedan, wagon, ute or WN Caprice.

As a quick reminder, the Holden VF Commodore SS-V, with its V8 engine, can be ordered from 45,490 AUD, while the VF Commodore Evoke, the base version, will cost 34,990 AUD. The new Holden VF Commodore is getting LED daytime running lights, integrated lip spoiler in the deck lid, new fender vents, more creases in the hood, a new rear end, heads-up display, a big navigation screen with the MyLink system, Auto Park Assist, Blind Spot Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Reverse Traffic Allert, Forward Collision Alert, electronic parking brake and much more.

had to look up crash test video's after seeing this and it seems it can take a side impact quite nicely. some window tints would help the glass have a not as crazy impact. here's the side impact video for those curious to see how it went...

Good video. The SS can really take a beating. Do side air bags come standard in the SS, or is it an option?

Not only is the itself car super safe, the owners apparently can take a big hit in the rear end themselves as well.

Knee airbags by any chance? Would be a good feature have if it doesn't have them already. Also expected more air bags after seeing how many air bags come in a lot of new cars. 6 doesn't seem like it's worth of today's standards

entry level evoke has six air bags as standard, so will the SS
Good to know. Thanks. Watching that video made me realize that side airbags really do make a difference if an accident happens. If it wasn't for the bag, the head would get going straight through the window.

The Chev SS will be equipped with front driver and passenger airbags, curtain airbags for front and rear row passengers, and side thorax airbags plus you guys will get driver and passenger knee airbags for a total of 8 airbags.
We only get 6 and the ANCAP rating reflects the results for 6 airbags plus front and rear seat seatbelt reminders.

thanks, it makes sense now, always known the U.S. to have more safety features on what ever cars are sold here. 6 would be enough in the U.S. market SS but the more the better i guess.

Would you rather have 8 over 6?
