2010 Honda Ridgeline Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2010 Honda Ridgeline was new.


Interior: 7.7

The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is appreciated for providing a spacious five-seat cabin with good storage possibilities. However, as well equipped as the cabin is, some say seat comfort could be better and complain of some cost-cutting measures. For optimum luxury, several recommend upgrading to the top-of-the-line RTL trim.

  • "The interior has many minivan cues, but it's a clean, very practical design." -- Cars.com


The Ridgeline's seats get mixed reviews.

  • "Comfort was hit or miss. Our 5-foot-8-inch author had a hard time finding a suitable driving position despite the power seat and adjustable steering column. However, others hopped in and got comfy right away. There's plenty of room for drivers of most sizes and shapes, and passengers should have room to stretch regardless of whether they're riding up front or out back." -- PickupTrucks.com
  • "The Ridgeline's front bucket seats are well-shaped and comfortably firm. Taller drivers will bemoan the lack of a telescoping steering wheel, however." -- Edmunds

Interior Features

Like all Hondas, the Ridgeline has abundant standard features. These include power windows for the front and rear cabin, a HomeLink® remote system and a multifunctional center console with sliding armrests. The optional navigation system is also well liked. However, some reviewers complain of cheap materials.

  • "Plastics inside are way too hard, and the substantial panel gaps around the dash pad and instrument panel aren't impressive." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "Honda-typical gauges, which are easy to read. Controls are simple, but some radio adjustments require a stretch. Ridgeline has a steering column-mounted transmission shift lever that has imprecise movement, which allows it to overshoot Drive from Reverse or Park. Ridgeline's cabin is more than serviceable, but overuse of hard plastic trim disappoints. Assembly quality mostly top notch." -- Consumer Guide


Reviewers find that the Ridgeline's in-bed trunk is not the only location for inventive storage. The  Ridgeline's seats flip out of the way for extra back-seat cargo room, and most reviewers say there is plenty of small-item storage as well.

  • "The rear split-bench seat folds up neatly to allow storage of large items in the cab." -- Cars.com
  • "Interior storage compartments abound, and additional cargo space can be accessed by flipping up the Ridgeline's 60/40-split rear seat." -- Edmunds
