Brand Distinction and Design Freedom

Breakthrough Lighting allows for complete brand distinction and advances the communication between the user, vehicle and its surroundings.

Liftgate Modules

New Functionality & Styling Possibilities

Lightweighting trends have “opened the door” to our thermoplastic Liftgate modules. Aggressive exterior styling not possible before is enabled by material science and innovation. Our one piece structural design allows for component integration while reducing customer investment and increasing assembly efficiencies.

Front Integration Panels

Seamless Integration. Seamless Possibilities.

Large-format decorated front panels using in-mold film. These panels integrate state-of-the-art sensors, camera, and light technologies to enable unique OEM brand distinction. Through combining innovative materials and process technologies, our Front Integration Panel technology can achieve a high-quality lens that seamlessly integrates these features.

Roof Systems & Modules

Bringing the Open Sky to the Vehicle

Magna covers the full spectrum of vehicle roof systems using innovative technologies that enhance the driving experience. Our optimized systems improve aesthetics and support vehicle electrification requirements. We provide dedicated solutions to fit any body style or drive system. Aerodynamics is getting more attention for future projects. We are using our kinematics expertise to offer dedicated kinematics to Aero wings and spoilers.

Exterior Design

Designing Future Mobility

Incorporating Magna at the beginning of the vehicle design process ensures the most optimum use of leading technologies that help reduce weight and fuel consumption, such as active aerodynamics and the use of advanced composites. By being very forward thinking and by being a true partner from the earliest stages of vehicle design and development, we can see where the inspiration begins and grows and where vision takes shape.


Lightweight Bumper Fascia

Magna can engineer and supply bumper fascia at nominal wall thicknesses as low as 2.5 mm for maximum mass savings while also maintaining system performance. Further, Magna has welding technologies that do not require wall thickening to avoid appearance issues, thus avoiding mass increases.


Thin Wall Fascia

Lower density materials provide mass savings while maintaining processing and part performance capabilities.

Front End Modules

Making an Impact with Front End Modules

Front End Modules (FEM) allow the supply of all front-end components as one assembled-to-design system by the customer assembly plant. Due to Magna's advancement in materials, our FEMs offer many benefits to our customers.


Front End Carriers/Grille Opening Reinforcement

Magna FEMs are engineered and manufactured based on vehicle architecture, while balancing customers’ expectations for performance, weight, and financial requirements. New joining technologies such as infra-red welding of multiple pieces allow for structural assembly without the need for adhesives or consumables. In addition, we continue our efforts to reduce mass for fuel economy and cost savings. Carbon fiber uni-directional thermoplastic tapes are used for very lightweight localized reinforcements and are integrated with typical injection moldable resin grades.



Technology advancements and innovation with materials, enables Magna to eliminate parts through component integration. This results in improved fitting and craftsmanship in the design as well as improved efficiency and plant flexibility, with a more efficient use of OEM floor space. In correlation, inventory cost and complexity of parts are reduced.

Door Modules & Class A Surfaces

Advanced Material Manufacturing

Magna leads the industry in the ability to utilize a variety of materials including composites, steel and aluminum through innovative technology for Class A surfaces. By utilizing various material grades, joining methods and forming processes, we can produce the crisp feature lines our customers are looking for globally.
