The front bit is a single magnesium casting.

The rest are thick aluminium tubes. I’d bet a lot of dollars on this being better at side impact testing than a Volvo. Front impact will probably result in a burning magnesium front subframe though. Rear impact will also result in a fire because that’s where the engine is located.

Props for correctly identifying the car without google image lookup.
