The Euro NCAP agency has just published the crash test results for nine cars, most of which have come on the market in recent months. As you will see, some shone when others literally sank.
The donkey hood undoubtedly returns to the new Jeep Wrangler, which, despite its design a priori modern, only one of five possible stars. In detail, he received the following notes:
- 50% for the protection of adults
- 69% for the protection of children
- 49% for the protection of disadvantaged road users
- 32% for safety aids

The second major underperformance comes from another FCA group vehicle that is less modern this time around: the Fiat Panda.

Here are his detailed notes:
- 45% for the protection of adults
- 16% for the protection of children
- 47% for the protection of disadvantaged road users
- 7% for safety aids
Amongst others, the new Peugeot 508, which is included in the group of good students with five stars, was tested. The Tricolor sedan had 96% for the protection of adults, 86% for the protection of children, 71% for the protection of vulnerable road users and 79% for safety aids.
