  • Honda HR-V

    Once in a while, a truly exceptional vehicle comes along that changes the driving world and the driver experience for the better. During the 2017 model year, one of those vehicles is the 2017 Honda HR-V. Cargo capacity, storage, and seating configurations are some of the many outstanding assets of the HR-V. Though it’s a compact crossover SUV, the HR-V feels anything but compact on the inside. Keep reading as we look closer!

Cargo Capacity

The incredibly versatile HR-V is like three vehicles rolled into one, delivering the very best attributes of a compact vehicle, an SUV, and a hatchback all in one superb model. Among these incredible qualities is the HR-V’s impressive interior roominess.

The HR-V offers three cargo configurations that enable drivers to create the passenger and cargo space necessary to meet the changing needs of each trip. The 60/40-split second-row Magic Seat that comes standard in each HR-V model helps make this outstanding flexibility possible.


Honda HR-V Long ModeThe Long Mode configuration is activated by folding down the passenger-side seats in front and back to create one long, connected space for lengthy cargo items. Long Mode creates a space that is 8 feet in length for cargo that wouldn’t otherwise fit in a compact vehicle. Drivers can even pack in items like ironing boards, ladders, and surfboards!

Honda HR-V Tall Mode

When you have a cargo item that is on the tall side, Tall Mode can be created by folding up the cushions of the Magic Seat to create almost 4 feet of space from the ceiling to the floor. Potted plants, stacked boxes, and any other tall cargo will now fit in with ease.

Honda HR-V Utility Mode

Full cargo space behind the front row is opened up when Utility Mode is activated. By folding the Magic Seat flat to the floor, up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo volume is created for drivers to utilize however they need to. You may not think a compact vehicle would be much help when you’re moving to a new home, for instance, but you’ll be amazed at how many moving boxes and other items can be packed into the HR-V when it’s in Utility Mode!


Using the second-row Magic Seat, drivers and passengers are also sure to come up with their own configuration combinations. Whatever your need, there’s a configuration to help accommodate it!

Convenient Storage Spaces

In addition to all that versatile cargo room, the HR-V also has convenient storage nooks and accessories that come standard throughout the interior.

A high-deck center console with a sliding armrest and a storage compartment provides a handy space up front, and there are also door pocket storage bins in the front and back as well as a passenger-side seatback pocket.

In the cargo area, cargo tie-down anchors help drivers secure their items safely for travel, and a driver’s-side garment hook helps keep clothing from getting wrinkled during the journey.
