The Fit gives passengers space to stretch out and get comfortable, and even with all the seats filled, there’s room under the rear seat and in the cargo area for everybody’s things.
With a name like “Magic Seat,” you probably expect quite a bit, and we think these four seating configurations deliver. Though there’s nothing stopping you from simply putting your groceries or a day’s shopping haul in the backseat when you need more space, the Magic Seat lets you expand the cargo area in seconds with these four different 2017 Honda Fit seating configurations:
Utility Mode: This Magic Seat mode is straightforward and simple, folding down the entire rear seat (both sections of the 60/40-split folding design) to expand the cargo area from 16.6 cubic feet to 52 cubic feet. If you need to move small furniture, music instruments for band practice, or a few bikes for an outdoor adventure, Utility Mode has you covered.
Long Mode: This seating configuration is designed to do just what you would think, accommodate long cargo. By folding the front passenger seat and part of the rear seat down, the Magic Seat creates a long corridor that’s great for hauling ladders, long tools, surfboards, and other cumbersome items.
Tall Mode: Not all cargo should be set on its side for traveling; if you’re moving a plant or a large flat-screen TV, you may need a taller cargo area than a typical hatchback can provide. Tall Mode lifts up the seats of the rear passenger area so you can set cargo on the floor and use as much as 4 feet of vertical space.
Refresh Mode: New for the 2017 Fit, Refresh Mode isn’t for your cargo; it’s for you. In this Magic Seat mode, the front seats of the hatchback fold backward and the rear seats recline, allowing you a much-needed break after a long day. Just pull over, kick your feet up, and relax for a little bit.
The Magic Seat gives the 2017 Honda Fit cargo capacity the versatility needed for a work vehicle, a family car, or just a sporty new hatchback for the driver on the go.
