Fiat Panda scores zero stars in latest Euro NCAP safety tests

Fiat says: "We take the safety of customers and road users extremely seriously and the Fiat panda and latest Jeep Wrangler comply with all safety legislation in every county in which they are sold". Historically, the Wrangler has performed poorly in crash tests. It lost points for not having things like automatic emergency braking and lane-keep assist - the Wrangler doesn't offer either of those things in Europe, even as an option.
Being virtually the same vehicle, except for the slightly different body style, the two managed the same score in all categories: 96 percent for adult occupant protection, 84 percent for child occupant protection, 74 percent for pedestrian and cyclists protection and 76 percent for safety assist systems.
Euro NCAP secretary general Michiel van Ratingen commented: "It is truly disappointing to see a brand-new auto being put on sale in 2018 with no autonomous braking system and no lane assistance. It is high time we saw a product from the Fiat-Chrysler group offering safety to rival its competitors", said Michiel van Ratingen, secretary general, Euro NCAP. "There were a number of issues with the Wrangler in impact testing too, in terms of deformation of the footwell and damage to connecting structures, while the make-up of the dashboard was seen to present a risk to occupants".
In its comments on the adult protection crash testing, Euro NCAP's engineers criticised the structural integrity of the Wrangler, describing the bodyshell as unstable.

While the Panda originally received 80 per cent for adult protection, the latest test rated it at 45 per cent. Similarly, the dummy readings for the rear passenger showed weak protection of the neck and chest when combined with the high shoulder-belt loads.
