Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Honda Ridgeline was introduced in the 2006 model year. The vehicle has been offered in only one configuration since that time, a 4-wheel-drive crew cab.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the head, neck, and chest indicate low risk of injuries to these body regions in a crash of this severity. Forces on the right tibia indicate that injuries to the lower leg would be possible.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. Both side curtain airbags and the driver side torso airbag deployed during the crash. After the dummy moved forward into the frontal airbag, it rebounded into the seat with its head grazing the side curtain airbag and protected from any stiff structure that could cause injury.

Side crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle categories.

The Honda Ridgeline was introduced in the 2006 model year. The vehicle has been offered in only one configuration since that time, a 4-wheel-drive crew cab.

Injury measures

Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate that rib fractures and/or internal organ injuries would be possible in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant injuries to other body regions is low.

Head protection

Driver — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof and a side airbag that deployed from the seat.

Passenger — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.
