Hyundai Santa Fe received high scores of 94 percent and 88 percent in categories of safety of adult occupant and safety child occupant, respectively.

The Euro NCAP testing procedure has changed dramatically over the past few years, with a major overhaul being introduced at the beginning of 2018, one that made the current testing procedure the toughest one in the history of the organization.

Jeep argues the Wrangler is a special goal off-road vehicle.

At the opposite end of the scale to the Jeep, the all-new Ford Focus, Jaguar's first fully-electric vehicle, the I-Pace, Hyundai's award-winning Santa Fe seven-seat SUV and the upcoming Genesis G70 have all scored five-star ratings in the latest round of ANCAP results. Another part of the report talked about how the deformation of the footwell showed the limit of the structure's integrity.

The Wrangler, which is yet to be released in Australia but is on sale overseas, was found to provide weak chest protection to the driver and poor protection for rear passengers in crash barrier tests.

"The new Jeep Wrangler benefits from fully boxed, body-on-frame construction featuring pressure-formed front-rail sections, with high-strength steel in all critical areas", the spokesperson added. Under Euro NCAP regulations, the lowest score from all four categories forms the basis of the final mark.

On the safety front, the Jaguar I-Pace benefits from its lightweight aluminium structure, which when paired to the integral battery pack, offers the highest torsional rigidity in any production Jaguar yet, mentions the company. "The bumper provided good protection to pedestrians' legs at all test locations".

The Wrangler safety rating calls into question the safety standards for the upcoming Jeep Gladiator pick-up that is based on a stretched version of the rigid Wrangler chassis.

An FCA source has confirmed that the 2019-specification JL Wrangler will be sold locally with AEB when it hits showroom floors in March next year. The auto scored 69% for child protection.

In child protection, head protection was declared poor in all tests.
