Title: HINGE ASSEMBLY FOR A BONNET OF A MOTOR VEHICLE, AND MOTOR VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a hinge assembly (10) for a bonnet of a motor vehicle, having a hinge base (14), which can be fixed in position on a body part of the motor vehicle, and having a hinge upper part (12), which can be fixed in position on the bonnet. The hinge upper part (12) is mounted on the hinge base (14) such that the hinge upper part can pivot about a pivot axis. The hinge assembly (10) comprises at least one supporting element (28) which permits the hinge base (14) to deform in a first direction (20) in that the hinge base (14) can move away from a stop region (34) of the at least one supporting element (28). The at least one supporting element (28) limits a deformation of the hinge base (14) in a second direction (22) opposite the first direction (20) by means of the stop region (34). The invention also relates to a motor vehicle having at least one such hinge assembly (10).
