The SV6 is engineered to be among the safest vehicles in its segment. The frame is designed to achieve effective crush, helping preserve occupant space while absorbing energy. A longer front-end compartment provides more crush space, while the longer, more heavily reinforced engine compartment side frame rails increase energy absorption during frontal impacts. This design is conducive for crash compatibility. The extensive use of high-strength steel is behind many of its structural enhancements.
That's actually pretty nice. So there was a benefit from extending the nose, other than the obvious "expressive SUV styling".
