The latest Jeep Wrangler doubled over during a crash test

The United States Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) conducted the latest generation Jeep Wrangler crash tests on Friday, May 8th. When impacted with a slight overlap (25%) at a speed of 64 km / h, the SUV capsized on its side after colliding with an obstacle.

IIHS experts awarded the SUV 2 points out of 4 possible, because when overturning, the risk of injury is increased. From complete zeroing of Wrangler points to airbags that worked accordingly, and a stiffer body. The latter has slightly changed the shape of the doorway after an impact.

IIHS conducted the second such crash test. Both tests completed similarly. The results of the first strike were not made public, as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) protested them, saying that the car did not roll over during internal crash tests.

The institute agreed to re-test in a different way, which was approved by the FCA, but Wrangler turned over again.
