2017 Honda Ridgeline Interior – The 2017 Ridgeline interior is a clean-slate design that offers new levels of premium quality, convenience and user-friendly technology in spacious, versatile package. The new Ridgeline reaches higher into the premium end of the truck market with major upgrades to interior quality and refinement and more premium features than ever before, including available heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and memory seating—all offered as standard equipment on the new line-topping Ridgeline RTL-E and the dramatic Ridgeline Black Edition. Further, the 2017 Ridgeline incorporates the latest in connected-car technology, including Pandora and both Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® compatibility.

Available Interior Features

Interior Styling
The new Ridgeline interior takes the refinement to a whole new level with high-quality, soft-touch materials and premium touches applied liberally throughout, including a leatherette dash board upper with stitch pattern and LED accent lighting in the first two rows. The instrument panel is highlighted by striking new high-contrast instrumentation, a 4.2-inch full-color Multi-Information Display (MID) and an available 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen. Fit, finish and materials have received close attention, and soft leather seating is standard on RTL and higher trims.

The Ridgeline Black Edition features many unique interior styling features, including red-perforated black leather seating with contrasting red stitching, black headliner and upper cabin trim, red accent stitching on the doors, red LED ambient lighting and “Black Edition” logos stitched into the seatbacks and floor mats.

Interior Colors

The Ridgeline’s interior palette is sophisticated and coordinated, and is offered in Neutral Black, Wisteria Gray or Shadow Beige colors, Shadow beige perforated leather in the RTL, RTL-T and RTL-E, and red-perforated black leather with red accent stitching in the Ridgeline Black Edition.

Versatile, Spacious Cabin
The Ridgeline has always been appreciated for its roomy and versatile cabin and user-friendly design, and the new 2017 Ridgeline interior builds on those proven attributes. In terms of passenger dimensions, the new Ridgeline is close to its predecessor in most dimensions. The new Ridgeline interior makes its largest gain in front hip room, with an increase of 1.5 inches (38 mm). With a passenger volume of 109.7 cubic feet, or 3.11 cubic meters (108.9 cubic feet, or 3.08 cubic meters in RTL-E and Black Edition), the 2017 Ridgeline has the most spacious interior in its class.

Multi-Function Center Console
The Ridgeline interior offers a range of convenient storage features for the driver and passengers. The center console is specially engineered to offer tremendous versatility and utility. Up front, it has a smartphone tray and a pair of cupholders. The main storage compartment is topped by a sliding tambour door that disappears from view when opened, instead of getting in the way as a hinged lid might. When closed, it creates a large, rigid and flat surface upon which items, like a purse, can be placed. Inside is a sliding smartphone tray, along with a 12-volt power outlet and USB and auxiliary jacks. The interior compartment is large enough to accommodate large items like flashlights, lock boxes, tool bags or up to five iPads. The rear of the center console includes automatic climate vents for the rear seat passengers.

Steering Wheel
The steering wheel, leather-wrapped on all Ridgelines with the exception of the RT, incorporates the most commonly used controls, allowing drivers to keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. In all trims, the steering wheel offers manual tilt and telescopic adjustment. Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink® and audio system controls are located on the left side of the steering wheel; cruise control and Multi-Information Display (MID) controls are on the right side. Trims with Honda Sensing™ have LKAS and ACC controls located on the right side of the steering wheel as well.

One-Touch Power Moonroof with Tilt Feature
The Ridgeline RTL-E trims and above feature a power tilting and sliding front moonroof with a manual sunshade. To tilt or slide the moonroof, the driver or front passenger needs only to fully press the ceiling-mounted switch once (instead of pressing and holding it for several seconds). The moonroof fully opens or closes automatically. However, if the operator wishes to only partially open or close the moonroof (such as to achieve partial ventilation), a lighter touch yields fully manual control. The moonroof can also tilt to provide ventilation. An auto-reverse feature is built in, helping to mitigate the possibility of a pinched finger or limb. If the moonroof motor’s ECU detects a threshold level of mechanical resistance, indicating a possible obstruction, the motor will automatically reverse and reopen the moonroof.

Power Windows, Locks and Mirrors
Power windows are standard equipment on all Ridgeline models and include auto-up and -down operation on the driver’s and front passenger’s windows. Power door locks and power mirrors are standard equipment on all Ridgeline models. Ridgeline AWD RTL models and above include heated exterior mirrors. Smart Entry is standard on Ridgeline RTS and above models.

Sliding Sunvisors
To provide more flexible shading from the sun, all Ridgelines come equipped with sliding driver and front passenger sunvisors that can be extended 6.1 inches along their mounting shaft, a distance that provides perpendicular shade for the eyes even when the front seats are in their rear-most position.

Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror
RTL-T and above models feature an electro-chromatic interior rearview mirror that automatically dims during nighttime driving to reduce glare from the headlights of following vehicles.

The Ridgeline has analog instrumentation with large tachometer on the left and coolant-temperature and fuel-level gauge on the right of a central 4.2-inch full-color Multi-Information Display (MID) that provides a range of information and trip computer functions. The digital speedometer is prominently positioned front-and-center above the MID.

The gauge package progressively illuminates to give the driver a welcoming feel upon entry. When the door is first opened, the instrument lighting illuminates and then brightens progressively to 100-percent illumination when the ignition is switched on. The illuminated instrument panel then comes alive, indicating that the vehicle is ready to go. At the end of the drive, the instrument lighting dims progressively.

Multi-Information Display
The Ridgeline instrument panel provides important vehicle information via a Multi-Information Display (MID) positioned centrally in the meter panel. Controls positioned on the right side of the steering wheel allow the driver to cycle the MID display through multiple screens of information from sources including LKAS, ACC and more. The Ridgeline MID also displays turn-by-turn directions when using embedded navigation or Android Auto navigation app.

The Maintenance Minder™ system alerts the Ridgeline driver of upcoming maintenance needs via the MID and should a fault occur with the vehicle, specific warning information will appear. The display indicates when to change the oil, air cleaner, transmission fluid, spark plugs or coolant, as well as when to rotate the tires.

Advanced and Intuitive Instrumentation and Controls
All important systems and controls in the Ridgeline are positioned within easy reach of the driver. Controls for the systems used most frequently—audio, cruise control, BluetoothHandsFreeLink, available navigation system with voice recognition and Multi-Information Display—are conveniently positioned on the steering wheel. The main instrumentation is an easy-to-read analog design, supplemented with digital and graphic displays. Typical of Honda interior design, the soft-touch switchgear of the Ridgeline is engineered to deliver a high-quality feel and positive action. A new standard multi-angle rearview camera provides a choice of three different views.

Engine Immobilizer
Complementing the remote entry system is a standard engine-immobilizer system. A special electronically coded key prevents the vehicle from being started—even if a mechanical duplicate of the key is used. A transponder, built into the key, signals the immobilizer control unit that the key is genuine. If the vehicle is hotwired, or an unauthorized key is used, the engine will not start.

Transmission Controls
In the Ridgeline, the 6-speed automatic transmission has a conventional straight-gate shifter that is intuitive and easy-to-use and takes up little space in the center console.
