Just because the Ridgeline has a pretty face doesn’t mean it’s a stranger to hard work. The UV-stabilized and scratch-resistant bed is engineered to keep your Ridgeline looking fresh every day. It works around the clock to help protect your ride from any ticks, dings or scrapes. No matter where you are, hold down the fort with eight heavy-duty tie-down cleats to help keep everything in its place. When you need to be seen, available projector-beam LED headlights help to make sure your presence is known. On hot days, you’ll love opening the one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature. It’ll get fresh air circulating and let you soak up some sun. Who would’ve thought a truck could look this good? Well, we did.
Key Feature: Available power-sliding rear cabin window with defroster
If you thought the bed was roomy, wait until you’re inside the cabin. The Ridgeline sports segment-leading interior spaces, making it one of the largest and most versatile cabins out there. For anything coming along for the ride, the 60 /40 lift-up rear seat bends over backwards to help you store the stuff you don’t want hauled in the bed. On those cold days to the ski hill or on the job, you and your lucky passengers will forget how you lived without heated front seats or available heated rear seats. For those fickle passengers in the front and back, the available tri-zone automatic climate control helps settle any arguments on the perfect temperature by letting them choose their own. The best part of your A to B won’t be arriving. It’ll be getting there.

Knows your next move before you make it.
Get used to not getting lost. The available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, teamed up with the Display Audio System, provides turn-by-turn directions to virtually wherever you’re going. Isn’t it nice to ask for directions without asking for directions?
Get the lowdown.
When you press its buttons, it’ll share its feelings. The 7” colour TFT centre meter display houses audio information and important vehicle information like engine oil life, trip range, and warning messages.
Honda Sensing Technology
Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system
The available FCW system that is integrated with CMBS is designed to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you and issue alerts if you’re approaching with too much speed. If you fail to respond to the alerts, the CMBS is triggered into operation.
Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)
To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the available CMBS is engineered to apply brake pressure if you don’t slow down when it senses you’re at risk of a collision. If it still senses an imminent collision, CMBS is designed to brake firmly.
Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system
The available LDW system is designed to monitor vehicle lane position and alert you if your vehicle drifts into a new lane when you haven’t signaled.
Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
The available LKAS is engineered to gently correct your steering if you begin to leave a detected lane without signaling, applying torque progressively to the steering to help guide you back to the centre of the lane.
Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system
The available Road Departure Mitigation system is designed to help steer and even apply the brakes to help keep the vehicle from leaving the road.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
The available ACC system is designed to keep a set speed and set following interval behind the vehicle detected ahead of yours, including the ability to start and stop the vehicle with the flow of traffic.
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying full brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence.
Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
To promote enhanced safety and fuel efficiency, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System continually checks the air pressure in each tire. If pressure drops in any tire, the driver receives a dashboard alert.
Hill Start Assist
When you take your foot off the brake, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Accord from starting to roll backwards when stopped on an incline.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure
The highly innovative, next generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin.
The Accord features childproof rear door locks, as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle’s seat belt system.
Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and breakaway wiper pivots.
Seat belt safety
The Accord helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system and 3-point rear seat belts.
Six standard airbags
The cabin of the Accord contains six standard airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system as well as side curtain airbags with rollover sensors, which are designed to deploy the side curtain airbags in the event of a rollover. Plus, it has SmartVent side airbags, which are designed to deploy safely in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.
HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System
The HondaLink Assist Automatic Emergency Response System helps you get the help you need when you need it most. If the airbags deploy, your Display Audio System is engineered to automatically attempt to put you on a call with an operator who will forward your location to first responders if needed. It works with any compatible Bluetooth-paired phone as long as it has reception, does not require a subscription and gives you peace of mind while you’re on the road.
