Leadership in Collision Compatibility

America is split virtually down the middle—between passenger cars and light trucks.
 
This freedom of choice enables almost everyone to find a vehicle that meets their needs. However, statistics show that many of the fatalities in collisions involve a significant mismatch in the height or weight of the two vehicles.
 
So, Honda engineers took the initiative to create a unique, next-generation body design, Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, which helps minimize the effects of a mismatch. 
 
ACE™ helps enhance occupant protection in almost every Honda vehicles while at the same time increasing their compatibility with other vehicles during a frontal impact.

How do we design our vehicles to protect you and to lessen the impact to other vehicles on the road?


The ACE™ body design helps spread out the forces of a frontal collision to help avoid concentrated impact forces that cause injuries.





A conventional body structure concentrates the energy from a collision primarily through two side frame rails.
