2019 Honda HR-V Offers Plenty of Cargo and Passenger Space

The 2019 Honda HR-V is a versatile crossover that offers drivers a dynamic performance on the road and available all-wheel drive for all-season driving. Although it offers a compact stance on the road, “it delivers ample passenger and cargo space,” according to U.S. News and World Report. “It also earns a lot of general praise from critics as a practical daily driver with great fuel economy and an upscale interior quality.” A great vehicle inside and out, whether you’re transporting groceries for the week or camping gear for the weekend, the HR-V can accommodate everyone and everything you need.

Seating Configurations

The HR-V features a second row Magic Seat at a 60/40 split for greater versatility that makes it easy to accommodate large, bulky, or awkwardly shaped items without sacrificing all of the passenger space. There are 3 distinct modes that are designed to haul cargo for various situations.

  • Utility Mode – This is the mode with the most cargo space. Fold the rear seats down completely flat and the cargo space balloons to measure as much as 58.8 cubic feet. Whether you’re moving, traveling, or just transporting a whole lot of cargo, you’ll be able to fit everything you need.
  • Long Mode – On the passenger side, fold the front and rear seat down to accommodate long objects like a surfboard, kayak, or even a rolled up rug. You’ll be able to slide in cargo that is up to 8 feet long.
  • Tall Mode – The HR-V can also accommodate cargo that needs to stand upright such as a potted plant or even a flat screen TV. Flip the rear seat up and reveal a storage space in the floor in order to nestle cargo inside that is 4 feet tall.
