A sill for a body structure of a vehicle, in an installed state, extends substantially in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle. Outer, middle and inner sill parts are each of shell-like or hat-like cross section and have respective sill strengths. The outer sill part and the inner sill part are connected to one another at respective upper and lower ends thereof via flanges. A middle sill part is positioned between the outer sill part and the inner sill part. The middle sill part is connected at least to the inner sill part. At least in a region of a front section as viewed in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle, the outer sill part has a strength which is lower than a mean strength of the sill, which is dependent on the outer sill strength, the inner sill strength and the middle sill strength and masses thereof.

A motor vehicle (1) has a wheel arch (3), in which a wheel (4) is arranged, and has an air guiding apparatus (20) for guiding an air flow (8) that flows onto the wheel arch (3) during operation of the motor vehicle. The air guiding apparatus (20) is configured and arranged in such a way that a first part air flow (11) is guided past an inner side of the wheel (4) and a second part air flow (12) is guided past an outer side of the wheel (4). The two part air flows (11, 12) then are combined again behind the wheel arch (3) in a vehicle longitudinal direction.
