American Honda announced the latest Body Repair News bulletin covering the all-new 2016 Honda Civic.
Of particular interest is the use of a 1,500 MPa steel rear frame, aluminum front bumper beam and resin composite front bulkhead.
The 1,500 MPa steel is stronger than ordinary steel, so it is able to help protect vehicle occupants while reducing the overall vehicle weight to improve fuel efficiency.
The front bumper beam uses 6000 series aluminum alloy construction. The vehicle also has a lower bulkhead constructed of resin composite material.
