Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure

What’s the Benefit?

ACE enhances the Fit’s safety performance by helping to absorb frontal crash energy and mitigating its effects on the passenger compartment.

The Feature:

The Honda-exclusive Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure on the Fit has been designed for enhanced energy absorption in frontal collisions; this helps improve passenger-cabin crashworthiness, even during rigorous crash tests.

  • ACE enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions.
  • It 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
