AADA Welcomes First SA Dealership to
Host ANCAP Crashed Car

The peak body representing franchised new car Dealers has welcomed the very first display of an ANCAP crashed car at a South Australian new car dealership.

“The AADA continues their partnership with ANCAP to display crash-tested vehicles in new car dealership showrooms,” said AADA CEO David Blackhall.

“I congratulate the South Australian Department of Planning, Transport & Infrastructure and the RAA for joining ANCAP in this important national initiative, to increase consumer awareness of car safety though new car Dealers,” he said.

“Displaying a crashed car in a dealership assists sales staff to visually demonstrate the safety features on a car and educate consumers,” he said.

“ANCAP also has a mobile app that sales staff and consumers can use to compare various cars on the market,” said Mr Blackhall.

Dealers are well placed to educate new car buyers on the benefits of safer vehicles and the AADA looks forward to continuing the partnership with ANCAP to make safety part of the sales conversation.

The crash-tested Toyota Corolla Hybrid hatch will remain on display at CMI Toyota’s West Terrace showroom for the next few months.
