CABIN CONSTRUCTION


BHE091001084T03

• A triple-H construction has been adopted which provides a solid assembly, while being center pillar-less, due to the H-shaped structure of the floor, sides and roof.

• The solid coupling of the rear door locks (top and bottom) with the strikers on the body, together with the rear door built-in pillar provide structural strength equal to or better than that of a regular sedan.

• The side impact bar inside the front door is positioned to effectively disperse an impact throughout the body. Also, catch pins are installed to disperse impacts involving the doors throughout the side sill.

• Body rigidity has been improved due to the highly rigid, closed-section high-mount backbone frame located along the upper part of the transmission tunnel.

• Cabin distortion when driving has been suppressed due to the crossmembers, attached on each side of and crossing over the transmission tunnel. These also heighten the rigidity of the front seat supports and improve handling.
