We tell you what the front apron means!
The front apron is the part in the front area of a passenger car that is installed below the bonnet. The purpose of the front apron is to absorb shocks. In the past, a front apron was still made of sheet metal and was extremely susceptible to rust because it was in the area of the wheels and was also covered by stone chips. In the 80s, front aprons were made out of plastic. Nowadays there are front aprons almost exclusively made of plastic. The front apron often contains openings for air and fog lamps or parking aids etc. The front apron is also responsible for the air flow and has a significant influence on the road holding of a vehicle.
