This is rather a big car part that relates to the vehicle body parts. Its main function is to protect the engine and other elements of the engine compartment from the impact of external factors. In addition to protection, the bonnet undertakes some other tasks. Due to it aerodynamic properties increase and the engine noise is absorbed. As regards to its design it is worth noting that usually the bonnet is connected with the car body by joints or concealed latch. But in racing cars the bonnet is held with the help of studs.

In most cases, there is a carmaker logo, air intake and washer jets on the bonnet. To enhance the isolation of engine noise, this part is covered with a special soundproofing material inside. Moreover, to protect the windshield a deflector is installed on the bonnet. Many car owners feel uncomfortable because the bonnet is heavy to open it. To resolve this problem, some bonnets are equipped with a pneumohydraulic telescopic pusher. Thus the bonnet is not only automatically opened, but also safely held in this position.

In recent years in developed countries such as Japan and the EU, were set standards for weight and rigidity of the bonnet. This was due to the fact that pedestrians sustained head injuries when hitting the car. The new rules led to the creation of new bonnets with inner panel and small conical sockets. Safe bonnet became one of the main ideas of the modern cars’ designers. One of the new developments is an aluminium mechanical energy absorber.
