Impact Absorbing Structure for Front Collision

An optimal arrangement of the basic frame and reinforcements helps to minimize cabin deformation in the event of a collision.

► The body disperses the impact force in the event of an offset frontal collision.

► The body strengthens inner door reinforcements and reduces the gap between the door inner panel and the pillar. This communicates impact load to the door belt line reinforcement, reducing the load on the pillar in the event of an offset frontal collision.

► The floor side of the front side member and the inside of the floor side member reinforcements have been used, minimizing the cabin deformation.
