The new Holden Astra Sedan receives maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating with its passive and active safety features.

The soon-to-be Holden Astra Sedan has joined its hatch sibling in being awarded the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating.

Following its recent test in Australia, the European manufactured Holden Astra Sedan’s credentials are thanks to its lightweight, high-strength steel safety cage.

This provides the most outstanding level of passive safety, particularly in side impact testing.

As well as the side high-strength steel safety cage, other safety features include two ISOFIX child seat attachment points to aid easier child seat fitment.

Passive safety is critical when a vehicle is involved in a collision, and the Holden Astra Sedan performs well in the case of a collision.

Another safety feature, which has been adopted with other models now offered with the new Astra, is a rear view camera.

More features like the ‘Holden Eye’ forward-facing camera is key to Astra Sedan LT and LTZ’s active safety use.

This technology is designed to alert or correct the driver before a collision happens.

Key features include; Lane Keep Assist, which nudges you back into your lane if you accidentally veer out, Forward Distance Indicator and Forward Collision Alert, which advise a safe distance between your car and other vehicles.

Another fantastic feature is the Blind Spot Alert, which gives drivers an indication of when a vehicle is approaching in their blind spot via and illuminated icon in the outside the mirrors.
