2018 Holden Commodore gets five-star ANCAP safety rating

The 2018 Holden Commodore has been awarded a five-star safety rating from independent crash-testing firm, ANCAP. It's the first score issued by ANCAP this year, and fittingly it's given to the first imported Commodore. The 'ZB' Commodore managed 35.54 out of 38 for adult occupant protection, equating to 93 per cent. It also scored 85 per cent for child occupant protection, 78 per cent for pedestrian detection, and 77 per cent for safety assist systems.

Americans hesitant about autonomous cars - poll

More than 65 per cent of Americans are wary of self-driving cars, according to a new Ipsos and Reuters opinion poll. A total of 2592 people were surveyed between January 11 and 18, 2018, with respondents born between 1946 and 2004. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Millennials (born between 1982 and 2004) were most receptive to the idea of autonomy, with 38 per cent of respondents indicating they were "comfortable" with the idea of a self-driving taxi.
