The crash-compatibility body as of September 2003 : increasing overall safety for everyone on the road

Not all technologies depicted are used in all markets.

How the crash-compatibility body works

Let’s take a closer look at how the crash-compatibility body helps to:
1. prevent misalignment;
2. disperse collision loads; and
3. improve energy absorption.

Effect of the crash compatibility body

Testing has confirmed that the crash-compatibility body is effective in enhancing the safety of occupants in both vehicles, even in a collision involving a large and a small vehicle.

The frame deforms overall to prevent misalignment.

The large vehicle and the small vehicle absorb the impact quite evenly.

The amount of body deformation in small vehicles is reduced.
