One of the highlights of this sedan is its adoption of a high-standard pedestrian protection system. The car was said to be equipped with engine hood cross-section buffer structure, strengthened front-end bumper, and lifted engine hood that should minimize the pedestrian’s injuries on vehicle collisions.
