The 2013 Honda Fit utilizes Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body-structure technology to enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. The ACE system actively channels frontal crash energy to both upper and lower structural elements, including the floor frame rails, side sills and A-pillars. The ACE body structure routes crash forces around and away from the passenger compartment.
The Fit has six standard airbags. The Fit has side curtain airbags and the passenger-side Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) airbag that will not deploy if the system detects a smaller-sized or out-of-position occupant. Both the driver and front passenger front airbags (SRS) incorporate dual-stage and multiple-threshold activation technology. The front row seats also have seat belt pretensioners and active head restraints.
Battery Crash Safety
The Electric Vehicle Fit is designed to protect the high-voltage parts within the vehicle in case of a severe crash. For example, the floor frame and crossmembers form a grid-like compartment to surround and protect the drive battery. The electrical flow is automatically disconnected if a severe crash occurs.
