An FCA Australia spokesperson told GoAuto: "Safety is something we take incredibly seriously, and every other member of our Jeep family of vehicles wears a five-star safety rating with pride, whether they have been crash-tested by ANCAP in Australia or by Euro NCAP". Automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring system are some safety features that are lacking in the 2018 Jeep Wrangler. It wasn't able to score more than 50 per cent in any of the test categories, and most concerning of all, it managed just 16 per cent when it came to Child Occupant Protection. "It is high time we saw a product from the Fiat Chrysler group offering safety to rival its competitors".
SpaceX sends Dragon to ISS but makes unplanned water landing
It's the first time that's happened since the groundbreaking launch of the company's Falcon Heavy spacecraft in February . Most recently, a Falcon 9 that launched from California included a booster with two previous launches under its belt.
The BMW X5 also suffered from airbag problems, with the driver knee airbag not deploying correctly in the frontal offset test and providing little additional protection to the driver's legs (but it still scored five stars).
You can dive deep into the Euro NCAP website to read the entire report on the Wrangler, but I'll dish out a few salient details here. It does not even offer lane keep assist, speed assistance, autonomous emergency braking as optional features with seatbelt reminder being the only standard safety equipment.
Frontal offset crash tests showed poor protection for both head and neck.
USA trade deficit with China expands
China has said it will immediately implement measures agreed under a trade war "truce" with the US. It was unclear if Gao was referring to the tariffs in his remarks to reporters.
It is only the second auto ever to handed a zero-star Euro NCAP rating, with the other vehicle being the Fiat Punto 2017. Fiat Panda also performed badly in whiplash protection for rear seat passengers and also where chest protection for front seat occupants is concerned.
While the Panda originally received 80 per cent for adult protection, the latest test rated it at 45 per cent.
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. It had the dubious honour of being the only vehicle in the safety organisation's history to end up with such a result.

This is What Mars Sounds Like, Courtesy of NASA InSight
Because wind gusts can trick the seismometer, the lander is equipped with an air pressure sensor to isolate that background noise. On Friday, NASA released audio of the Martian wind, the first time sound has been recorded on another planet's surface.
