Crumple zone


What is the crumple zone in a car?

A crumple zone is a safety feature on a car that is designed to absorb the energy from the impact during a crash, by allowing the metal to deform safely. Crumple zones are usually located at the front of the vehicle, in order to absorb the impact of a head-on collision, though they may be found on other parts of the vehicle as well.
