2021 Honda Ridgeline Review
Riding the Ridgeline: An Overview of the 2021 Honda Ridgeline
Trucks are a hot commodity right now, and the 2021 Honda Ridgeline in our new Honda inventory comes with some significant benefits. As a mid-size truck, it offers stellar interior storage options, a smooth ride quality, and an interior that is as comfy and quiet as one of Honda's sedans.
This year's model comes with a revamped front end. The rear bumper has been restyled too and has dual exhaust tips. Inside, a physical control knob has been added to the infotainment system after listening to consumer demand. The independent rear suspension makes for smooth sailing.
A large lockable in-bed trunk and two-way tailgate make the Ridgeline utilitarian for those who need to tote a lot of gear. Multi-surface traction makes the standard all-wheel-drive feel secure. Honda Performance Development even offers an aesthetics package with special graphics, squared-off fender guards, and unique bronze-toned wheels.
To top it off, a host of standard safety features will be on the menu. The Honda Sensing suite of driver aids gives you Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane-Keep Assist, And Adaptive Cruise Control. Upgrading to the RTL locks in Blind-Spot Monitoring for you.
Every trim has rear-seat heater ducts, and some have automatic climate control. One of the things that set the HR-V apart from other types of SUVs is its unique style. There are many sleek curves built into this vehicle, which are especially evident when looking at the doors and windows.
The rear door has a cool element, a hidden door handle that's vertical instead of horizontal. All the trims have fin-type antennas mounted on their roofs, rear roofline spoilers, and LED brake lights to add to their sporty appearance. Some get to have fog lights, an exhaust finisher, and under-body spoilers.
The 2021 Honda HR-V is a modern vehicle in many ways. Beyond having a youthful style, it has plenty of advanced components for you to take advantage of. The base trim comes with a five-inch colour LCD screen and Bluetooth. The other trims have seven-inch touchscreens along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Having this smartphone connectivity makes it convenient and much safer to send and receive text messages, make phone calls, and play your favourite songs when you're behind the wheel.
The two more premium trims called the EX and EX-L got further enhanced with SiriusXM, HD Radio, and a 180-watt sound system with six speakers. The EX and EX-L have driver-assist technologies as well. They both have a long list of systems that can watch out for potential hazards when you're travelling. For instance, collision mitigation braking makes it less likely that you'll be involved in a frontal collision, and lane-keeping assist can keep you centred in the right position.
These two trims also have blind-spot monitoring systems, automatic high beams, and adaptive cruise control. It's truly amazing how far technology has come and how well Honda has used it to its customers' advantage. Even if you don't get a premium trim of the Honda HR-V, you'll benefit from having a multi-angle rearview camera, stability control, traction control, LED daytime running lights, and brake assist. Brake assist is a program that ensures that you'll have full stopping power when you suddenly hit the brakes. We'd be happy to show you our new Honda inventory and set you up with a test drive.
