The flexibility of the Honda HR-V is particularly impressive on the inside. Three cargo configurations give drivers exactly what they need to meet the changing demands of each new trip—and a 60/40-split second-row Magic Seat, standard inside each HR-V model, makes creating these handy configurations a snap. Utilize each of the following formations as your cargo needs change:
Long Mode: Long Mode creates an 8-foot-long space inside the HR-V that drivers can utilize for long cargo that wouldn’t normally fit inside a two-row vehicle—items like ladders or surfboards. To enact Long Mode, simply fold down the passenger-side seats in the front and back to create this long, connected space. Slide in the lengthy items you need to transport, and away you go!
Tall Mode: When you have to transport a taller item, such as a large potted plant or a tall suitcase, Tall Mode has you covered. Simply fold up the cushions of the second-row Magic Seat and you’ll have almost 4 feet of space to use from ceiling to floor.
Utility Mode: When you need as much cargo space as possible, Utility Mode is the configuration you want. Utility Mode opens up 58.8 cubic feet of cargo room behind the front seats—which is enough space to fit in a small sofa! This mode is created by simply folding the second-row Magic Seat flat into the floor.
In crafting the interior of the Honda HR-V, a great deal of thought was put into creating a design that would accommodate passengers comfortably and spaciously. In fact, the HR-V is just as roomy on the inside as it is dexterously subcompact on the outside.
Within those five seats, passengers will enjoy 39.5 inches of headroom up front without a moonroof, 37.6 inches of front headroom with a moonroof, and 38.3 inches of rear headroom.
The HR-V additionally offers 41.2 inches of front legroom and 39.3 inches of rear legroom for passengers to stretch out in, and 56.8 inches of front shoulder space and 54.5 inches of rear shoulder space is also theirs to enjoy.
Hip room up front in the HR-V is 53.1 inches, while rear hip room is 47.4 inches.
Among these, a high-deck center console with a sliding armrest and a storage compartment is standard up front, while door pocket storage bins are offered for the front and rear seating areas to hold any items that passengers need to tuck away.
For added convenience in the HR-V’s cargo area, tie-down anchors are supplied to help secure items, and a garment hook can be found on the driver’s side so that vehicle occupants can conveniently hang up coats and clothing.
