A Quick Peek into 2018 Honda Ridgeline Safety

  • 2018 Honda Ridgeline

    Nearly every year we get to meet an all-new version of our favorite vehicles, back and better than ever before. This year we get an introduction to the 2018 Honda Ridgeline and all of its glorious new upgrades to the features and systems we all love so much. So far, there have been a few changes to the trim levels, omitting a few old ones to focus on providing the best performance in all trims. There have also been upgrades in areas like the tech department and safety suite, which we’re particularly excited about. Stay with us while we outline some of our favorite—and most important—Ridgeline safety features.

Driver-Assist Safety Features

To provide the driver a more hands-on approach to increasing vehicle safety, this system gives drivers some handy tools to work with. This department consists of features that allow the driver to be more alert and aware of their surroundings, which means they will be able to make more informed decisions about the safest way to handle various situations. The main system we count on for this is the Honda Sensing suite, which includes plenty of high-tech systems. In addition to those, a few helpful extras include:

Honda Ridgeline Blind Spot MonitoringBlind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor – This system alerts drivers when there are vehicles approaching them from the sides as they are reversing, allowing for safer maneuvering out of parking spots and other low-visibility situations.

Honda LaneWatch – To assist drivers in making informed decisions about safety, Honda LaneWatch provides drivers with a clear view of the right lane directly on the Display Audio touchscreen, helping them determine when it is safe to change lanes.

Active Safety Features

Active safety features are an extremely important area in overall vehicle safety for the Ridgeline. Every time you start your vehicle up, these special features and systems go to work to ensure optimal safety while the vehicle is in motion. Vehicle stability assist with traction control, an anti-lock braking system, and braking assistance are some common features in this department that make this possible. Other features in this category include:

Honda Ridgeline Collision Mitigation Braking SystemCollision Mitigation Braking System – This system kicks into action if it senses that the driver has applied abnormal braking force so that it can assist in bringing the vehicle to a quicker stop in an effort to prevent an accident.

Honda Ridgeline Rearview Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines – This camera system helps drivers to avoid obstacles or possible accidents by giving them three different views of the back of their vehicle.

Passive Safety Features

Many people may think that because these features are “passive,” the role they play in keeping the vehicle safe is less important than other safety-focused areas on the 2018 Ridgeline, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. While these features do not go into action the second the vehicle starts up, like active safety features, their work is about taking precautions that will help lower the risk of accidents and provide more protection for passengers in the event of a collision. A few features that fall under this umbrella include childproof rear door locks, three-point seatbelts with automatic tensioning, and a LATCH system for child safety seats. Other passive safety features include:

ACE Body Structure – The Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure works to better distribute the impact of a crash throughout the vehicle and away from the passengers to reduce damage from an accident.

Honda Ridgeline Interior

Airbag systems – Advanced front airbags, SmartVent front side airbags, and side curtain airbags with a rollover sensor are some of the Ridgeline’s airbag systems that work to reduce injury and add support in the event of a collision.
