    More safety for vehicle passengers

    In the event of an accident, the risk of injury to the occupants in a small, lightweight vehicle is many times higher than that in a large, heavy vehicle. As a rule, the crumple zone of a small car, for example, is already at its limit before the front end of an SUV starts to deform. KIRCHHOFF Automotive has developed a front end structure that acts like a protective shield for all those involved in the accident. In the event of a crash, this design distributes the resultant energy over a large area where it is absorbed.
