Lightweight and safe are the key research directions of the automobile industry. Bump beam is an important part of the car safety protection and it’s lightweight design has drawn much attention. In this paper, the static strength and the low-speed impact performances of two types of bump beam with the same structure, which made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and high strength steel (HSS), were investigated. Under the condition of static press, frontal and 40% offset impact, part structural stiffness, component crush intrusion, energy absorption were comparison analyzed. In order to guide the product design, the deformation and failure of CFRP beams with five different laminate structures were simulated under frontal and 40% offset impact. The results indicate that, with the same structure, the properties of CFRP bump beam are generally superior to HSS product, more conducive to lightweight and the optimum design of the laminate is [0° / 60° / 120°]
