Jeep Wrangler Scores 1-Star In Euro NCAP

Fiat Panda 2018 lands zero stars Euro NCAP safety rating - Second worst rating of all time

New Jeep Wrangler Euro NCAP

However, two FCA vehicles - Fiat's ageing Panda and Jeep's all-new Wrangler - get zero stars and one star respectively.

The only other auto to match a zero star rating in the new tests is another Fiat - the ageing Punto.

Thanks to a host of safety features offered as standard like ABS, EBD, lane assist system, speed assist and many more, the Q3 performed strongly in all the categories. So poor it was given a one-star safety rating.

In contrast, the four-wheel drive off-road Jeep Wrangler is an all-new vehicle, fresh to the market in 2018.

The Panda and Punto - which was tested 12 months ago - at least have the excuse of being old cars that Euro NCAP felt the need to test against the latest safety requirements. We did the math to see the raw Euro NCAP scores for a crash without it being dragged down by the driver assistance systems, and adult occupant safety came out to 56.7 percent. Another part of the report talked about how the deformation of the footwell showed the limit of the structure's integrity.

It scored 50 percent for adult occupant safety, 69 percent for child occupant safety, 49 percent for vulnerable road user safety and 32 percent for its safety assistance equipment.




The remaining five were praised by Euro NCAP.

While the aforementioned cars all five-star rated to no one's surprise, Jeep's latest Wrangler and Fiat Panda did the otherwise. "Testing protocols that apply exclusively to urban scenarios may not align with such a vehicle". Euro NCAP's tests on the Hyundai Santa Fe highlighted an issue where the side curtain airbags of cars equipped with a panoramic roof could be torn during deployment. The only areas lacking slightly are the protection for passenger's right knee and femur, and rear seat whiplash protection, both of which are said to be marginal.

Child occupant protection has nearly halved, from 31 per cent to 16, while pedestrian protection has not changed much, going from 49 per cent to 47.

"As the bare minimum, a standard-fit Autonomous Emergency Braking system should be available with the FIAT Panda".

The Wrangler will arrive in Australia in the first quarter of next year.
