The 2018 Fiat Panda got crashed and tested under strict modern regulations by the European New Car Assessment Program recently, and came out of it with a solid zero out of five stars. The video from the test looks almost identical to the one the NCAP ran on the Panda in 2011, when the car got a four-star rating. But in 2018, the Euro NCAP considers the Panda a zero-star car. Across all of the assessments, the Panda scored 45 percent of the total points in adult-occupant protection, 16 percent in child-occupant protection, 47 percent in protecting vulnerable road users like pedestrians, and 7 percent in safety assistance. The Fiat Panda isn’t sold in the United States, but it is in the European market, which means it falls under the Euro NCAP’s testing range. The Euro NCAP said the passenger compartment of the Panda remained stable during the frontal offset test shown in the gif above, but that’s common among vehicles in regions with strict crash tests these days. … [Read more...] about Here’s What the Fiat Panda’s Zero-Star Safety Rating Looks Like

Truck Yeah The trucks are good! Today, after almost 12 years in production, the final Jeep Wrangler JK will roll off the assembly line in Toledo. And while this may not seem like such a big deal in the wake of the excellent replacement model, the JL, we shouldn’t forget how important the JK was. This is truly the end of an era. In the pantheon of Jeeps that fundamentally shaped car culture as we know it, three vehicles rise to the top: the original WWII Jeep, the Cherokee XJ and the Wrangler JK. The first on that list changed the world when it faithfully served allied forces during World War II, the second became the best selling Jeep in history (~2.9 million sold) when it brought real off-road capability—and Jeep itself—into the mainstream, and the last—well, in some ways, it did exactly what the XJ did. And then some. That’s why the JK wrangler has been flying off lots since it debuted, with over 200,000 selling during its peak in 2015 according to … [Read more...] about Say Farewell To The Jeep Wrangler JK: The Most Important Jeep Of A Generation
Nice Price Or Crack Pipe Is this used car a good deal? You decide! The seller of today’s Nice Price or Crack Pipe Ford misspells its name as TOURUS in his ad. That’s either sloppy or, as a mash up of touring and Taurus, is the greatest portmanteau ever. Let’s see if he at least got the price right. A lot of people think that we don’t get French cars here in the U.S. Hell, a lot of people just plain don’t get French cars at all. It’s true that the Gallic nation’s major manufacturers—Renault, Peugeot, Citroën—are currently unrepresented here. We still do get French cars though, and amazingly two of the most notable ones fall at the extreme ends of the affordability and capability scales. Those would be the Smart Car, the factory for which is located in Hambach, France, and the Bugatti Chiron, built in a clean room disguised as a factory in Molsheim. It used to be that you needn’t seek high and low (see what I did there?) … [Read more...] about At $15,800, Will This Neat as a Pin 1999 Ford Taurus SHO Totally Clean Up?

Jalopnik Reviews All of our test drives in one convenient place. The 2019 GMC Sierra is basically the luxury-branded version of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado, offering number of fun tech goodies that the Chevy doesn’t. But as fun as those are, it’s really the styling of the off-road model, the AT4, that makes the Sierra stand out. (Full Disclosure: GMC flew me to St. John’s, Newfoundland in Canada, put me up in a nice hotel, and fed me foods that had to be described at length by waiters prior to consumption.) The GMC brand is an odd one, with all of its vehicles being based on the same platforms as Chevrolets, but with unique styling and a few features that GMC hopes will help its products look a bit more “premium” than the ones with bowties on their grilles. It works, too. These things sell like hotcakes. The 2019 GMC Sierra, for example, is built on the very same bones as the Silverado, and is powered by the same engines. But to make it stand out, … [Read more...] about The 2019 GMC Sierra Is A Better-Looking Silverado With Useful High-Tech Features
