Earning the 5-Star Rating
To earn a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA, the Ridgeline earned top scores in the frontal crash tests for driver and passenger and the side crash test for both rear and front seats, and a high score in the rollover test. Receiving this safety designation underscores the commitment that Honda design and engineering has to keeping both drivers and passengers safer on every trip. After a break from the market, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline is back and better than ever, and drivers couldn’t be happier.
Safety in the Ridgeline
The 2017 has safety built right in with Advance Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. It also has a firm stance on the road with Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control and an anti-lock braking system, which work together to give the Ridgeline a sturdy and sure performance on the road no matter the speed or road conditions.
Safety Meets Technology
The Ridgeline also comes equipped with a long list of safety features and technology that help aid drivers to drive better and safer on the road. A multi-angle rearview camera is standard on the Ridgeline, allowing drivers to see the full scope of the Ridgeline’s surroundings to make backing up and parking easier. And it doesn’t end there.
