  • Publication number: 20200398901
    Abstract: An upper vehicle-body structure for a vehicle includes a roof rail serving as a side part of a roof of the vehicle having an internal space defined therein that extends in a generally vehicle front-rear direction, a first pillar extending downward from the roof rail, a second pillar extending downward from the roof rail at a rearward position relative to the first pillar, a roof reinforcement extending from the roof rail toward a vehicle-width-direction inner side at a rearward position relative to the first pillar, and a filler in the internal space. The filler is in contact with an inner surface of the roof rail defining the internal space and suppresses changes in shape of the roof rail. The filler is in a region extending forward and rearward relative to a front edge of a connection portion of the roof rail with the roof reinforcement.

  • Publication number: 20200331538
    Abstract: A vehicle rear body structure improves rigidity of a portion around a wheel house while suppressing an increase in body weight (number of components) as much as possible. While a wheel house inner is provided with a second inner side reinforcement extending in a vertical direction, in a wheel house outer, a bulged section, which is formed to be bulged to a cabin outer side, includes a wheel arch-shaped section formed in an arch shape to cover a rear wheel from above when seen in a vehicle side view. The wheel house outer is formed with an upward extending ridgeline section that extends upward above the wheel arch-shaped section along a bulged shape of the bulged section to the cabin outer side and at least a portion of which overlaps the second inner side reinforcement when seen in the vehicle side view.
