The Ridgeline’s commitment to safety starts with its very foundation. Honda’s unique and innovative Advance Compatibility Engineering Body Structure utilizes a network of frame structures that absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants inside the cabin. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved in the impact, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The Ridgeline includes a long list of passive safety features, including airbags, seatbelts, and child-proof locks, all working to keep you safe in the event of a vehicle accident..
The active safety features in the Ridgeline help ensure its best performance, despite inclement weather or less-that-ideal road conditions. These features help the Ridgeline come to a complete stop more quickly during an emergency braking situation, maintain good tractive control of the road, and ensure that the Ridgeline is clearly visible to other drivers.
Every model of the Ridgeline comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that helps drivers check their surroundings before reversing. And with guidelines as a standard feature, and dynamic guidelines as an upgrade on the upper trim levels, drivers will be able to maneuver in and out of tight or narrow spaces with ease. The camera includes three views for different driving situations:
Standard on the RTL-T trim is Honda Lane Watch. A small camera mounted onto the passenger’s side mirror displays a live video feed of activity in the driver’s blind spot when a right lane change is signaled. The video displays on the eight-inch audio touchscreen inside the cabin and allows drivers to see up to four times more than using the mirrors alone.
Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assistive technology features that help drivers stay safe by warning, preventing, and mitigating any impacts on the road.
As drivers explore the trim levels, they’ll find even more safety and driver-assistive technology features such as auto high-beam headlights and a blind spot information system. Plus, a navigation system that uses voice recognition allows drivers to receive instructions without taking their hands off the wheel.
