The 2018 Honda HR-V Cargo Space Is Larger Than Expected

  • Honda HR-V

    The 2018 Honda HR-V provides Capital Region drivers with plenty of cargo space. Uniquely designed, this subcompact crossover has a surprisingly spacious interior that be rearranged in many different ways, making it one of the most versatile interiors on the road. Whether you’re carting groceries for the week or luggage for the weekend, the HR-V is ready for just about everything.

Interior Configurations

The interior of the HR-V is versatile and spacious. Behind the rear seats is a cargo area that measures at 24.3 cubic feet in the 2WD version. If drivers opt for AWD, that space measures at 23.2 cubic feet. But the cargo space can also be arranged in many different configurations thanks to its second-row Magic Seat. At a 60/40 split, it can make room for all the cargo you might need. This versatility sets it apart from comparable models on the road, and as Car and Driver says, “…none of them do cargo hauling better than the Honda HR-V.” There are three distinct modes for various situations.

Honda HR-V Utility Mode

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 an entire living room or just transporting a whole lot of cargo, you’ll be able to fit everything you need.

Honda HR-V Long Mode

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 tuck in cargo that is up to 8 feet long.

Honda HR-V Tall Mode

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’s up to 4 feet tall.

Interior Accessories

The cargo area of any vehicle can easily become the place where the most dirt, mud, or just general mess can accumulate. But available accessories can be added on to help organize the cargo area and keep it clean and neat without a lot of fuss.

  • Cargo Cover – This cover hooks onto the back of the rear seats and can cover the cargo area to keep your belongings safely out of sight and shielded from sunlight exposure.
  • Liner – Protect the floor of the cargo area with a liner that is easy to clean—whether you’re storing muddy or snowy boots or wet bathing suits.
  • Net – Keep items such as groceries vertical and secure, safe from tipping over on turns or curves, by placing them in the cargo net.
  • Organizer – Life can get messy. This organizer has different-sized compartments where you can sort the things you carry and stay organized.
  • Tray – This hard-shell tray is excellent at keeping wet and muddy items from spoiling the carpets and is a breeze to clean up after use.

Exterior Accessories

For even more cargo space, drivers can utilize the exterior of the HR-V with available accessories that allow you to fasten items to the roof or rear of the vehicle. It makes transporting larger items easy when you have a car full of passengers inside. Don’t leave a thing behind.

  • Cross Bars – With cross bars installed, you can attach bikes and other equipment securely and safely to make for easy transport every time.
  • Roof Box – Store items safely out of view and shielded from the rain, wind, and snow with a roof cargo box up top.
  • Snowboard and Ski Attachment – Attach and fasten your snowboard or skis easily and securely and take to the mountains.
  • Bike Attachment – If you’re transporting bikes and still want a low head height on the road, a bike attachment allows you to transport bikes at the rear of the HR-V, too.
