How Does the ACE Body Structure Work in the 2016 Civic? | Luther Mankato Honda

Honda has a heritage of building safe and reliable vehicles. One way they have continued this heritage is the creation of the Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure (ACE). 

Take a look below at how the ACE Body Structure works to keep you safe in the new Honda Civic for sale in Mankato, MN

ACE is like your Civic’s specially tailored safety skeleton. It has been tested in Honda’s own indoor, multi-directional, crash-test facility, and has performed well over and over again. This facility is the world’s first crash facility of its kind. Located in the R&D center in Japan and Ohio, these centers conduct a variety of test to give Honda engineers a better understanding of what occurs in real-world collisions. 

If your Honda Civic takes an impact, ACE kicks in to disperse the force of the impact across the vehicle. In other words, it distributes the crash energy more evenly throughout the vehicle to help protect occupants more effectively. 

For example, if you take a frontal collision, ACE makes it less likely that the Civic’s body will fold in, potentially injuring passengers. To absorb this crash force, “crumple zones” and high instile steel aid ACE in absorbing the force in areas that may have difficulty staying intact.
