Jeep Wrangler scored just 1-star in Euro NCAP results, disappointing everyone in the era of technology where every brand is trying to bring 5-star safety to the passengers. The same league of tests brought 5-star ratings to Audi Q3, Volvo V60 and S60, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jaguar i-Pace, BMW X5 and Peugeot 508. Jeep Wrangler is an off-road car with capabilities surpassing most everyday SUVs. The 1-star safety rating takes Jeep away from the modern lineup of cars that use multiple sensors to avoid collision and much more. Fiat Panda, another vehicle considered for this test, scored zero stars and came out as the most disappointing vehicle in the batch.

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is available with front two and rear two airbags, saving the head section of passengers from both rows from touching the glass section. The safety package on Wrangler includes seat-belt reminder and manual speed limiter. Fiat Punto was the first car to bring zero stars in Euro NCAP in 2017 and Panda became the second product. Jeep is taking things lightly as lane keep assist and automatic emergency braking is not even listed under the optional model. The cars with five star ratings are also having certain limitations with them.

Hyundai Santa Fe with optional panoramic sunroof saw airbag deployment and tearing problem for the side while X5 faced problem with knee airbag function. Jeep Wrangler looks huge in comparison to most cars with similar engine size but only size cannot absorb the amount of force that comes into action at the time of a collision. The car weighs over 2000 kg for the petrol and 2100 kg for the diesel engine variant. The car measures 4583 mm in length, carrying a wheelbase of 2947 mm in the Unlimited variant. The diesel engine on use is 2.8L while petrol available here is 3.6L V6.

The Suzuki Jimny is quite the hype of in the world right now. Just in the Indian markets, there were great speculations of the car being launched but the hopes were shattered when Maruti Suzuki announced that the cute and cuddly Jimny will not be making its way to the Indian markets. Euro NCAP decided to test the metal with crash tests of the Jimny and the results have been listed. The Suzuki Jimny has been awarded three out of five stars when it comes to the safety of the vehicle.

A series of tests were performed to test the crashworthiness of the Jimny. The low rating of the car is due to the age-old design of the ladderfame chassis and the low provision of the driver aids. After the crash tests, Euro NCAP wrote, “In the frontal offset test, there was insufficient pressure in the driver’s airbag to prevent it from ‘bottoming out’, allowing the head to contact the steering wheel.The passenger compartment was extensively deformed in the offset test, especially around the door-frame and the score for the driver’s chest was penalised for this unstable collapse. Combined with marginal dummy readings, protection for this body area was rated as weak.”

“Although dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of both driver and passenger, structures in the instrument panel and dashboard were thought to pose a risk of injury to occupants of different sizes, and protection was rated as marginal.”

“Tests on the front seats and head restraints showed marginal protection against whiplash injury in a rear impact. A geometric assessment of the rear seats indicated good protection. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking (AEB) system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving.”

The crash tests show that the Jimny is not the car to be in case of an accident. Looking at the car, it seemed like it is quite tough but the recent reports show that it crumples during crashes where other cars like the Tata Nexon secured quite a high rating.

Jeep Compass recently scored five star safety rating in Euro NCAP crash test.

Jeep Compass scored 90 percent for adult safety and 83 percent score for child safety. However, pedestrian safety rating was 64 percent. Jeep claims that Compass comes with the same sort of rigidity for all markets. The report generated after this test confirmed that passenger compartment remained intact and helped the dummies escape any serious harm. Minimum amount of impact was seen on places like chest and knees of rear passengers.

However, a full blown side impact from side hit can cause damage to ribs of passengers in exceptional cases. Jeep India has received more than 10,00 bookings for the popular premium SUV, further expecting a boost in sales in first week of September. However, the problem with rise in cess of 10 percent on SUVs and luxury cars can cause long term effects on Jeep brand. Compass is powered by two exceptionally well performing engines in India. Fiat sourced 2.0L diesel motor is good for 173PS at 3750 rpm and 350Nm at 1750-2500 rpm.

The engine is presently on offer with just a 6-speed manual gearbox. Jeep’s powerful 1.4L petrol motor is turbocharged, making it good for 162 PS and 250 Nm of power and torque respectively. It can be bought with one manual and one automatic gearbox option. The range presently starts from INR 14.95 lakh while goes up to INR 20.65 lakh for 4×4 diesel variant. Prices may go up next week with higher cess on cars of this segment.

Skoda may launch the Kodiaq around the festive season of 2017 in India. Prices can be expected to fall between INR 26-28 lakh while the placement will be done right above the Superb. It will be known for the large number of features and would be a good option for those who need extra legroom and comfort in all seats.

It will rival Hyundai Santa Fe and Volkswagen Tiguan while indirect rivals include Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. It actually carries the same fascia as most other Skoda models sold internationally.
