AbstractThe front pillar as a vehicle body rigidity member is constructed with a first front pillar arranged on the front side of the vehicle body and a second front pillar arranged on the rear side thereof. This construction enables the front pillar to meet with requirements contrary to each other, that is, for an improvement in a rigidity, particularly a flexural rigidity and for widening the front field of vision.
