The Jeep Compass has recently received only two stars at the recent EuroNCAP testing.
After the new procedure in rating new cars has been adopted by the safety specialists at EuroNCAP, the Jeep Compass was the first model to suffer dramatically. According to EuroNCAP, the Jeep Compass has received a two-star rating after being tested and the North American model managed to scorre a total of 37 points or 76 percent in child occupant protection, 8 points or 23 percent in pedestrian protection and just 22 points or 61 percent in adult occupation.
EuroNCAP is saying that in the adult occupant protection, the frontal impact brought the Jeep compass 11.2 points, the side impact 8.0 points and the rear impact (whiplash) just 2.8 points. Children aren’t too safe either in the new Jeep Compass, and pedestrians should run when they see the compact crossover. The Jeep Compass scored just 43 percent (3.0 points) in the safety assist, thanks to the ESC (Electronic Stability Control). The model tested by EuroNCAP was a five-door 2.2 diesel ‘Limited’, LHD, and the rating applies to all 2011 model year versions.
While the new Jeep Compass managed to earn just two stars in the latest EuroNCAP tests, the 2012 Honda Civic was awarded with a five-star rating. You can read more about the Japanese hatchback being tested by clicking this link.
