HRV to be 27% High Strength Steel
With the new Honda HRV on its way, the importance of high strength steel is becoming a reality. The technology is already found on many Acura products and is now moving to the Honda brand. This affects the consumer and most importantly the auto repair industry. That 780-1,500 MPa ultra-high-strength steel is around three and five times as strong as the 270 MPa mild steel in the car. This steel requires specialized equipement that not all body shops may have due to the high costs involved. Be sure to locate Profirst/Honda certified shops such as Pender Auto Body to repair your vehicle as these shops have been inspected to meet the highest repair standards. As the auto industry moves forward, we can expect this to be common place along with aluminum.
