Honda Ridgeline Interior & Cargo Rating

2020 Ridgeline Interior

As with its refined road manners, the Ridgeline's cabin is a step above most trucks. Solely available as a Crew Cab, there's plenty of space for all passengers and its relatively low step-in height improves access. Once inside, you'll find a pleasing design and the generous use of soft-touch materials that, once again, evoke a distinctly car-like impression. While there is a modern infotainment system, it's not the most intuitive unit around. Equipment levels are good, too, with features like tri-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, and a convenient dual-action tailgate standard across the range. Higher up in the range, you get access to leather upholstery and power seats.

Seating and Interior Space

Seating five, the Ridgeline has one of the more accommodating interiors in the segment. Adults will be comfortable in either the front or back seats as there's plenty of headroom and legroom for all. The cabin's width is also a strong point, with more hip and shoulder room than in many other trucks. The seats themselves have enough support and prove comfortable even over extended trips. Finding a good driving position is easy and higher-spec models have power-adjustable seats. Drivers will also appreciate the excellent forward visibility. Ingress and egress are aided by a low step-in height, making it easy to slide into the seats.

Interior Colors and Materials

While the cabin is certainly classy, Honda doesn't let you choose your interior color. The base Sport trim gets standard cloth seats and only in black, with no other color options available. From the RTL trim and up, leather upholstery is standard - the RTL's interior color is beige, the RTL-E's is gray, and the Black Edition gets a black/red leather cabin. Only the base model misses out on a leather-wrapped steering wheel, but all models have appealing soft-touch plastics on the upper half of the dashboard. Overall, it's a smart cabin that leaves most competitors feeling utilitarian by comparison.

2020 Ridgeline Trunk and Cargo Space

The Honda Ridgeline pickup has a truck bed cargo volume of 33.9 cubic feet and a lockable in-bed trunk volume of 7.3 cubes - this in-bed trunk also includes a drain plug so it can be used to store wet items. Improving access are low bed sides, while excellent width means that you can accommodate items up to four feet wide between the wheel wells. The highly versatile dual-action tailgate can open downwards or to the side - yet another thoughtful touch. There is also an available truck-bed power outlet, heavy-duty truck bed tie-down cleats, and a remote locking tailgate.

In-cabin versatility is just as impressive. The 60/40-split rear seats can flip up and there is enough space beneath them to store a set of golf clubs. Other storage solutions comprise a sunglasses holder, a multi-function center console, a lockable glovebox, beverage holders front and rear, and seatback pockets on both front seats.

2020 Ridgeline Infotainment and Features


The base Sport trim ships standard with push-button start, cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering column, tri-zone automatic climate control, and the Honda Sensing suite of safety features - the latter comprises driver aids like road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and collision mitigation braking. Moving up to the RTL trim adds power-adjustable front seats (ten-way power for the driver's seat and four-way for the front-seat passenger), along with heated front seats. The top two trims also have a two-position memory system for the driver's seat, ambient lighting, front/rear parking sensors, and a heated steering wheel. A one-touch power moonroof is standard on all but the base trim.


The Ridgeline gets Honda's Display Audio system with an eight-inch high-resolution touchscreen. It's standard on every trim, but the system isn't a model of user-friendliness and the screen isn't as responsive as it should be. Standard features include Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming audio, an MP3/auxiliary input jack, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HondaLink, SMS text messaging functionality, a USB smartphone/audio interface and a center console USB charging port. The top two trims add SiriusXM radio, HD radio, and the Honda satellite-linked navigation system with voice recognition. The Sport and RTL get a seven-speaker audio system with a subwoofer, while the RTL-E and Black Edition trims feature an eight-speaker premium audio system, along with a truck-bed audio system for outdoor parties.
