Jeep Wrangler gets 1 star in Euro NCAP crash test
The new Jeep Wrangler failed one of its Euro NCAP crash tests last week. It received a one-star rating for the frontal crash test, but performed well in side barrier and whiplash tests.
Euro NCAP said the new off-roader only provided marginal protection for the chest, body area and neck for the driver and passenger.
The organization does a series of tests, including into a front offset deformable barrier at 40 mph. > Into a front full-width rigid barrier at 31 mph, into a side-impact mobile barrier at 31 mph, whiplash tests at 10 and 15 mph and pedestrian impact tests at 25 mph.
The pedestrian impact test lowered the Jeep’s rating, as did the difficulty of installing child seats. Euro NCAP also notes the lack of lane keeping assist and automatic braking.
The Jeep Wrangler is engineered to deliver superior performance and unique driving experiences under the most demanding conditions.
NHTSA and IIHS crash tests have not yet been released.
