  • The crossmember comes removable in some cars while in other units, they come as a part of the car’s body. But this doesn’t change the purpose of the crossmember; whether removable or fixed, crossmembers are installed in the vehicle to provide greater ground clearance which is very important especially in going through rough trails.

Definition from own experience or research:
Poikkipalkki on mekaanisia rakenteita, esim. auton alustaa, sivuttaissuunnassa tukeva/jäykistävä palkki, tanko tms. tukirakenne.

Example sentence(s):

  • "Huomattavasti vahvistetut pitkittäispalkit ja heti kojelaudan taakse sijoitettu paksu teräksinen poikkipalkki parantavat Yarisin kestävyyttä nokkakolareissa." -
