A highly rigid and safe body, "MAGMA” (Mazda Geometric Motion Absorption; Mazda’s all-direction impact absorption body), has been adopted.
An impact dispersing three-fork structure that disperses a frontal impact into three directions has been adopted.
A crossbeam that suppresses the hinge pillars from moving outward during a collision has been adopted, improving the cabin strength.
A distribution of reinforcement to the floor, side frames, and roof employing an H-shaped structure to reinforce each joint has been adopted. the combination of three points to each floor, side frames, and roof surface provide the strong triple H-shaped structure.
SIDE IMPACT BAR FUNCTION
The side impact bar, located on the bottom part of the door, prevents the door from deforming inward by dispersing the impact to the floor in case of a side-impact collision.
A corrugated side impact bar has been adopted to each front door, improving rigidity in case of a collision. End Of Sie

Managing the Vehicle Damage Repair Process
In the event that your vehicle requires damage repairs, GM recommends that you take an active role in its repair. If you have a pre-determined repair facility of choice, take your vehicle there, or have it towed there. Specify to the facility that any required replacement collision parts be original equipment parts, either new Genuine GM parts or recycled original GM parts. Remember, recycled parts will not be covered by your GM vehicle warranty.
Insurance pays the bill for the repair, but you must live with the repair. Depending on your policy limits, your insurance company may initially value the repair using aftermarket parts. Discuss this with your repair professional, and insist on Genuine GM parts. Remember if your vehicle is leased you may be obligated to have the vehicle repaired with Genuine GM parts, even if your insurance coverage does not pay the full cost.
If another party’s insurance company is paying for the repairs, you are not obligated to accept a repair valuation based on that insurance company’s collision policy repair limits, as you have no contractual limits with that company. In such cases, you can have control of the repair and parts choices as long as cost stays within reasonable limits.
