2017 Honda Fit Cargo Capacity, Storage, and Seating Configurations

  • 2017 Honda Fit

    It might be a subcompact car, but the 2017 Honda Fit cargo capacity, storage, and seating configurations have had Wisconsin drivers tell us it feels bigger on the inside. With more than 95 cubic feet of passenger space and seating for up to five, the Fit is more sporty than subcompact, and Honda’s exclusive Magic Seat ensures it’s ready for whatever life throws at you, switching between cargo and passengers in seconds.

Passenger Space

The Fit competes with the subcompact cars on the market, but with 95.7 cubic feet of passenger space, it’s as spacious as many small cars. The Fit LX’s roomy cabin ensures everyone is comfy whether the car is filled with cargo or there are passengers in all five seats.

  • Front passengers have as much as 39.5 inches of headroom, 41.4 inches of legroom, and 51.5 inches of hip room, offering plenty of space for tall passengers.
  • Rear passengers don’t have to be kids to fit comfortably in the Fit, with 37.5 inches of headroom, 39.3 inches of legroom, and 45.1 inches of hip room.

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.

Cargo Capacity

With 16.6 cubic feet of cargo storage space, you should have no trouble lifting the hatch and finding room for backpacks, purses, and a family-sized load of groceries. If you’re looking for more space for your stuff, however, Honda has built multiple storage locations into the Fit, including:

  • Door pocket storage
  • Seatback storage
  • Under-seat storage
  • Console storage

With rear cargo-area tie-downs available, you can be sure to keep your gear secure, wherever it is. If you find that the 16.6 cubic feet of cargo storage isn’t quite enough, read on to learn about how Honda’s Magic Seat can expand it.

Magic Seat: 4 Seating Configurations

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:


Honda Fit Utility Mode

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.

Honda Fit Long Mode

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.

Honda Fit Tall Mode

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.

Honda Fit Refresh Mode

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.
