The 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a versatile and dynamic pickup. Offering drivers powerful performance on the road, available AWD, and tough utility capabilities, the Ridgeline is ready for any job. Specific design choices have given the Ridgeline “class-leading ride comfort and excellent handling,” according to the reviewers at Edmunds.com. But it’s the comfort, convenience, and technology features inside the cabin that many drivers might be surprised to find on such a capable pickup. These features set the Ridgeline apart from competitors on the road.
Inside the Ridgeline is a spacious and comfortable cabin, able to accommodate five passengers. The rear seat is a 60/40 split and can be lifted up to reveal an underseat storage area that measures 2.9 cubic feet. The versatile interior allows drivers to configure the seating in several different combinations to accommodate more cargo when you need it. It features a total passenger volume of 109.7 cubic feet, so even tall passengers in the rear seats will have plenty of space.
Headroom – 40.1 inches in the front / 38.8 inches in the rear
Legroom – 40.9 inches in the front / 36.7 inches in the rear
Shoulder Room – 62.0 inches in the front / 61.5 inches in the rear
