Honda ACE Body Structure
A few times throughout the site, like on the 2015 Honda Pilot page, we’ve mentioned the Honda ACE body structure. We realized not everyone may know what that means, so we’re going to give you a little further insight into what exactly the ACE structure is. It’s a Honda exclusive structural design that enhances safety tenfold in the event of a forward collision.
ACE stands for Advanced Compatibility Engineering, and it is designed to redistribute the force of a crash. Built with Honda’s highest-grade steel ever, ACE is a system of interconnected structural elements built in a way that redistributes the energy displaced from a frontal collision much more evenly throughout the vehicle. What it does is absorb much of the force, reducing the risk of injury or damage to anyone or anything placed within the cabin during the collision.
When working in conjunction with Honda’s wide array of available airbag systems, you can feel completely confident that in the unfortunate event of a collision you and anyone or anything that you have in your vehicle will be as safe as possible. Everything from SmartVent front side airbags to the Side Curtain airbags to the regular front airbags insures your safety if your vehicle collides with something, and different types of detection systems often installed in Honda vehicles make sure that you’re getting the protection that you need when you need it.
Taking both the ACE structure and airbag systems into account, adding the new safety technology like Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Warning make the new Honda models some of the safest automobiles Honda has ever created, and possibly some of the safest vehicles in the industry.
