A sporty compact SUV like the Honda HR-V is capable of delivering agile handling, impressive fuel economy, and a dependable drive on all kinds of terrain. Does it have room for all your cargo though? Maguire Honda of Ithaca finds out. We looked over the Honda HR-V cargo space to show drivers in Ithaca, Elmira, and Corning how much it can hold.

Honda HR-V Interior Dimensions

The Honda HR-V offers 24.3 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk. When you need extra room for your boxes or gear, you can make over twice as much space by folding down the 60/40 split 2nd-row Magic Seat®.

On top of having lots of space for your bags, this compact SUV also seats up to five people. Overall, there's 100.1 cubic feet of passenger room throughout the interior. That also gives you plenty of space for putting groceries or bookbags on the floor, too.

Versatile 2nd-Row Seats Gives Ample Cargo Space


One thing that sets the Honda HR-V apart from other SUVs is the standard 2nd-row Magic Seat®. While its split 60/40 and folds down, it's also capable of flipping upright to give you nearly four feet of storage space from the floor to the ceiling. You can even flip one side up while folding the other down. This kind of capability actually gives you three cargo modes to choose from:

  • Utility Mode - With the standard 60/40 split, you can fold down one section of the back seats or the entire row.
  • Tall Mode - By flipping the second-row seats up, you can keep plants or lamps upright, stack boxes, or roll your bike in. With extra room down low, this mode also makes it easier for dogs to hop in, too.
  • Long Mode - If you ever need to pack up a surfboard or some lumber, you'll likely need to use Long Mode. Fold down the rear passenger seat, then have the front passenger's seat recline all the way back. Once both are flat, you'll be able to slide in cargo that's up to 8-feet long.

Capable Cargo Features

While the trunk and 2nd-row offer lots of ways to load up, the Honda HR-V offers even more features that can make packing your SUV easier and more convenient. For example, roof rails are available to help you tie things like your Christmas tree or some kayaks to the roof.

Inside, you'll find cargo area tie-down anchors to keep your things from sliding around. There's also standard Rear Privacy Glass, which can help you keep presents hidden during the holidays.

Meanwhile, up front you can store all your valuables away in the center console. It's both useful and comfortable with a storage compartment and a sliding armrest.
