Bumper as the name suggests, offers protection to a vehicle by bumping off anything that collides into it. Bumpers in an automobile are designed to survive the collision without causing much damage to the vehicle's frame even after the vehicle has bumped into another vehicle. Brush guards; push bars, etc. were introduced later to provide additional protection to the vehicle. Bumpers were originally made from heavy steel. Later they came to be made from rubber, plastic or painted light metal thus making them vulnerable to damage from even a minimal contact. Most vehicles having bumpers cannot push or be pushed by any another vehicle. Modern day automobile industry has developed a variety of new guards to guard the vulnerable modern bumpers.


In the beginning bumpers resembled a strap of flat iron and during the 1960s they became chromed bumpers. In the 1970s self repairing bumpers were introduced and after soon they became a style statement for vehicles and were made mandatory for any vehicle. During the late1980s self repairing bumpers went out of style and were replaced with fiberglass bumpers.


Bumpers are referred to as bullbars in some parts of the world. Bullbar is fixed to the front part of a vehicle especially SUVs. It goes with the "tough" look of the vehicle. It offers protection to the front part of the vehicle and its passengers when the vehicle collides accidentally into an animal. They are available in a variety of sizes and forms. They are generally made from welded steel or aluminum tubing. In the recent times bullbars are made from molded polycarbonate and polyethylene materials. Bull in bullbar refers to cattle and the bullbar was designed to offer protection against these cattle.
