2017 Holden Astra five-star safety score has a disclaimer

The all-new 2017 Holden Astra has received a five-star ANCAP safety rating – but only for the top two versions in the range. The Holden Astra RS and RSV get Holden Eye autonomous emergency braking (AEB) as standard, as well as lane-keeping assistance, forward distance indicator and forward collision alert. But the base model R misses out on that tech.

New Skoda Fabia praised for five-star ANCAP rating

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP) has commended the all-new Skoda Fabia hatch and wagon range for a standard-setting five-star score in its latest round of testing. The new Skoda Fabia, the second generation of the car sold here, launches this week. As we have reported, it will come standard with potentially life-saving Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) technology — something even many luxury cars still can’t match.
