Geek, i think the A pillar and the roof is not the part of crumple zone. Infact the A pillar is designed to resist deformation in the crash because if the A pillar deforms it could jam the door which is a possible safety hazard.

The crumple zone zone includes the fenders, the cross member and the front sub frame upto the firewall and the crumple zone is designed in such a way that the engine does not intrude into the passenger cabin through the firewall instead it dives under the car.

I'm no expert correct me if i'm wrong.

Can anyone throw some light on this. Adventure crash guard always questions me, in a sense that, I feel some of the frontal components are bypassed in event of a frontal impact. Or maybe the Crashguard is attached to the front bumper itself.
