Safety Measures Frontrunner: 2011 Honda Fit Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure

In the last quarter of 2010, the Japanese manufacturer Honda broke the news to the public that there was a plan of upgrading the Honda Fit. On its release on November, aside from an excellent fuel economy the 2010 Honda Fit improved on its interior and safety features.

It was then reported that fatalities due to collisions are caused by the Honda Fit at First Hondadifference in height or weight of the vehicles. Honda engineers came up with an idea to minimize the damage done by collision. As its core is a body structure that holds 54% high strength steel and now the 2011 Honda Fit features the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure.  Originally, it is a frontal design to enhance crash compatibility to vehicles of different sizes.  The ACE™ built in a structure for load-bearing front frame in case two vehicles attached on collision, thus withstanding weight regardless of the vehicle size.  It is exclusively for Honda cars.

The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure enables front – passenger safety by minimizing the collision thru distributing the crash energy uniformly in the front compartment of the vehicle.  Energy is concentrated on the two side frame rails found in front of the vehicle. The impact to the passenger cabin is then reduced with this mechanism.

This feature of the Honda vehicles lead to five – star ratings in all of the frontal and side impact tests by National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration.
