Video: Last Jeep Wrangler Capsized Twice During Crash Test
The American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has conducted a series of crash tests on the latest generation Jeep Wrangler. On impact with a small overlap (25 percent) at a speed of 64 km / h, the SUV rolled onto its side after hitting an obstacle.
- Experts IIHS awarded the SUV two points out of four possible, as rollover increases the risk of injury. Correctly deployed airbags and a rigid body, which slightly changed the shape of the doorway from the impact, saved the Wrangler from completely zeroing points.
- IIHS conducted the second such crash test. Both tests ended the same way. The results of the first impact were not released because Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) protested them, claiming that the SUV did not roll over during internal crash tests. The institute agreed to retest with another FCA-approved method, but the Wrangler was back on its side.
In 2018, the new Jeep Wrangler failed the European crash test series organized by Euro NCAP. The SUV received one out of five stars due to the weak protection of the driver's chest and legs during a frontal displaced impact, as well as due to the low protection of the rear passenger's chest in a frontal impact with 100 percent overlap. In addition, the Wrangler has lost its stars due to the lack of airbags - they cannot be installed with a removable roof.
