When it comes to choosing a new vehicle, 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.
The Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is a Honda-exclusive body design that enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. The ACE design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. This enhanced frontal crash-energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.
Come in to Buckeye Honda in Lancaster Ohio to see first-hand what ACE Body Structure is all about. We can point out to you the different areas of the vehicle that make up the ACE system and show you why no matter if you go with a Van, SUV or passenger vehicle, Honda is the safe bet.
