      It appears to me the front wheel/tires were the most significant buffer in this frontal crash.

      it seems like riding a shopping cart of the walmart will be safer than this crappy tin can.

      Shopping carts don't get 4 stars as this Jeep did in the above test. Perhaps you should learn to read.

      To be fair, a Jeep isn't far removed from a shopping cart.

      Windshield didn’t even break. I bet you could still drive it home too.

      @TransDerwinOverdrive There was plenty of crumple, but it depends. A big thick steel bumper like many Jeeper have will probably smash most other vehicles.

      If you are not injured or dead and if the engine is not damaged you can

      I know, it’s great how it passes on the force of the crash to the occupants!

      That's a little harsh. I had a two Rubicon Jeep TJ's, and I don't know how much more "Jeep" it could be....

      Does NHTSA not measure the forces on the ankles and feet?

      Leg airbags should exist in all cars

      @ggolds5 lol you're an idiot. Direct quotes from the ENCAP report: 'In the frontal offset test, the connection between the A-pillar and the trans-facia beam was damaged in a way that indicated the structure would be unable to withstand higher loads. Similarly, deformation of the footwell showed that the structure had reached the limit of its integrity.'. 'Dummy readings, together with the penalty applied for the unstable bodyshell, resulted in protection of the driver chest being rated as weak. In the full-width rigid barrier test, dummy readings of chest compression showed marginal protection of the driver chest. For the rear passenger, dummy readings showed weak protection of the neck and, combined with high shoulder-belt loads, poor protection of the chest.'. Like i said, this flimsy tin can piece of shit failed structurally and offers little protection to occupants. Not because of safety systems - because it's built like trash. Learn to read you moron

      @ggolds5 car safety currently gives the most importance to occupant protection in case of an accident, the driving aids come second. Adding the driving aids points to the one star rating could probably bump it up to a three star rating, still quite bad. Current cars are still prone to crashing, even with all those systems you mentioned, so the most important feature is a well designed occupant cell that will keep people from getting hurt in the case of an accident. In this jeep, it seems, you could get a concussion or worse from banging your head against the door frame, as well as break your ribs from the seatbelts bad distribution of force. Trying to say that a jeep is safe just because of the crash mitigation systems is like putting a band aid on a big cut, it may hold for a while, but you should actually go get stitches so the problem is truly solved.

      @A P You are incorrect and your response is a knee jerk reaction without merit and it sounds ignorant as well. There is nothing flimsy what so ever in it's design or structure. Spend a few minutes learning a little about the frame and body structure and compare it to what you're driving. Read the EURONCAP and NHTSA results and their definitions regarding active and passive systems before making another uneducated and moronic response.

      2019 has the safety systems, IE AEB, LCA, that the 18 they tested did not have. Those are electronic systems not structural that were used to contribute to the ratings. Apples to oranges.

      @Andy Ramia the lack of driving assistance was just the cherry on top. If you read into the actual reasoning for the poor grade you'll see that it is mostly based on the poor protection to front passengers' chest and head, and the lack of seat belt pretensioners in the rear as well as the lack of rear curtain airbags. Also, the structure deformed in a way that showed it wouldn't resist an impact at a higher speed. I mean, in the video you can see the rear passenger slamming its head into the door frame, that alone should give it a poor rating.

      It seems like the front didn't crush as much as other cars.

      That Random Oshawott Jeep frame is actually pretty weak,compare to trucks or G wagon.

      Looks good to me. Love my Rubicon. Most keeps have aftermarket bumpers. So I'm surr that would take more impact

      You want the vehicle to crush. Otherwise you crush. I would not want to be in this vehicle during an accident
