The Wrangler is new, having been launched in North America earlier this year and now Europe.

In a series of safety crash tests conducted by Euro NCAP, the 2018 Jeep Wrangler which was also one of the vehicles being tested received a 1-star rating for safety.

Another one of the most disappointing premiers this month was the Jeep Wrangler which scored a one-star rating, making it the third worst Euro NCAP score of all time.

Euro NCap released the safety ratings of nine cars that include the likes of the Audi Q3, BMW X5, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jaguar I-Pace, Peugeot 508, Volvo V60 and its partner, the S60, all achieve a maximum five-star rating.

Because rockets can be reused, SpaceX launches are cheaper and have boosted interest in space-based systems by a great factor. Elon Musk later confirmed the issue, saying 'Grid fin hydraulic pump stalled, so Falcon landed just out to sea'.

It scored 50 percent for adult occupant safety, 69 percent for child occupant safety, 49 percent for vulnerable road user safety and 32 percent for its safety assistance equipment.

"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.

According to the test report, in the frontal crash tests, the A-pillar and the trans-fascia beam were damaged in such a way that it indicated that the structure would not be able to withstand higher loads. The devaluation means that the protection of knees and thighs on the passenger side was rated better than on the driver side - because there is no knee airbag installed anyway and the measured values were not corrected downwards in the sense of a penalty.

Remember how the Fiat Punto scored a dismal zero stars in a Euro NCAP test? Under Euro NCAP regulations, the lowest score from all four categories forms the basis of the final mark. Fiat Panda also performed badly in whiplash protection for rear seat passengers and also where chest protection for front seat occupants is concerned.

The substance is said to give users a temporary feeling of euphoria when ingested and in some cases causes hallucinations as well as dizziness.

The current Panda has been around since 2011, and was originally awarded a four-star rating when it was new.

The only other vehicle to match a zero star rating in the new tests is another Fiat - the ageing Punto.

Child occupant protection has nearly halved, from 31 per cent to 16, while pedestrian protection has not changed much, going from 49 per cent to 47.
