WATCH: Fiat Panda, Jeep Wrangler Off The Pace In Latest Safety Crash Ratings

While other models tested by Euro NCAP such as the Audi Q3, BMW X5, Hyundai Santa Fe, Jaguar I-Pace, and Volvo V60 received glowing five-star ratings, they still had some issues that need addressing. The Hyundai Santa Fe, for example, had an issue where the side curtain airbags of cars equipped with a panoramic roof could be torn during deployment. Hyundai has already fixed this, however, and will be recalling early models. The BMW X5 also suffered from airbag problems, as the driver knee airbag didn’t deploy correctly in the frontal offset test, providing “little additional protection to the driver’s legs.” A similar issue was seen with the 5 Series in 2017.

“Despite the work done by manufacturers during the development of their vehicles, Euro NCAP still sees a lack of robustness in some basic areas of safety,” Michiel van Ratingen said. “To be fair, the Audi Q3, Jaguar I-Pace, Peugeot 508 and Volvo V60/S60 have set the standard against which others are judged this time, and other manufacturers could do well to follow their example. The I-Pace, especially, demonstrates that future vehicles will be good for the environment but also provide high levels of safety.”
