Structure

Self-supporting chassis, three or five doors, high-resistance, multiple thickness structural elements for progressive energy absorption in impacts.

Side bars in doors for side impact protection and stiffening the passenger compartment in the event of front impacts.

The front and rear ends of the underbody crumple to reduce repair costs following low speed impacts.
