2013 Honda Accord Body Structure

The newly redesigned 2013 Accord body uses 55.8-percent high-tensile steel, more than in any previous Accord. And 17.2-percent of the steel is grade 780, 980 and 1,500 MPa, extremely high grades that have never before been used in any Accord, and in fact, very few other cars.

This is one of the first cars to use such high strength steel (1500 MPa) in its body structure, most applications only use it only for bumper beams. The 2013 Accord uses ultra-high strength steel in its A pillar and B pillar reinforcements as well as its rocker reinforcements.
