Awful Safety Ratings for Fiat Panda, Jeep Wrangler

The FIAT Panda received a zero star safety rating from Euro NCAP.

According to FleetNews:

“The Fiat Panda has become one of only two zero-rated cars in Euro NCAP’s history – the other was the FIAT Punto (2017). It also was awarded lowest ever Child Occupant Protection score (16%)

The 2018 facelift Fiat Panda failed to achieve more than 50% in any of the car safety organisation’s four key testing categories.

The safety of children seated in the rear was of specific concern to experts, with its Child Occupant Protection score of 16% falling significantly short of the 79% average.”

The Jeep Wrangler fared only slightly better,

According to FleetNews, “Another poor performer in this month’s round of Euro NCAP testing was the new Jeep Wrangler, which achieved just a one-star rating and a 50% Adult Occupant Protection score. It joins the Fiat Punto and Fiat Panda as the three lowest rated vehicles to go through the programme.”

The BRAKE Report will update with additional details.
