The world’s first inner and outer door ring system reduces cabin impact

Utilizing nine total gauges of its patented press hardenable steel, ArcelorMittal, in collaboration with Honda R&D Americas and Magna International, created a hot-stamped, laser-welded inner and outer front door ring system for the 2019 Acura RDX. This lightweight door ring offers unprecedented safety, and its hardware earns hardware. It garnered a fivestar rating for the narrow offset crash test and helped the RDX become an IIHS Top Safety Pick+. Additionally, the dual door ring is a finalist for the 2019 Automotive News PACE Award.
