Lightweight and Highly Rigid Body
High tensile strength steel is used to ensure safety and achieve a lightweight body.
In order to distribute impact force to the cabin and reduce floor displacement, reinforced panels and the placement of structures has been optimized.
Rust-resistance performance is enhanced by extensive use of anti-corrosion sheet steel, as well as by anti-corrosion treatment, which includes the application of anti-rust wax, sealer and anti-chipping paint, to easily corroded parts such as the doors and rocker panels.
Low Vibration and Low Noise Body
Effective application of vibration damping and noise suppressant materials reduces engine, wind and road noise.
Optimization of the shape of the body and underfloor ensures excellent aerodynamic performance.
