Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) Body Structure



What’s the Benefit?
The ACE body is designed to enhance occupant protection in the event of a frontal collision.

The Feature:
The Passport features Honda’s signature achievement in frontal crash-energy management—the ACE body structure.

  • In a frontal collision, ACE enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility.
  • The ACE design utilizes a network of connected structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.
  • This enhanced frontal crash-energy management helps to reduce the forces transferred to the passenger compartment and can help to more evenly disperse the forces transferred to other vehicles in a crash.
  • Plus, this design enhances the Passport’s performance in the stringent small overlap frontal test conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
