Crumple zone

The crumple zones of an automobile are a structural feature designed to compress during an accident to absorb energy from an impact. Typically, crumple zones are located in the front part of the vehicle, in order to absorb the impact from a head-on collision, though they may also be found on other parts of the vehicle as well.
