The Fit’s innovative 2nd-row Magic Seat is a 60/40-split bench seat. It is key to the Honda Fit’s passenger and cargo space and its reputation as a versatile and surprisingly accommodating subcompact. With four different seat/cargo configuration modes, drivers have the ability to change the Fit to fit their needs. Whether you’re carting friends or family across the state, or you’re on a road trip and you spot an antique chair you have to have, the Fit can handle it all. The result is a feeling of having plenty of space and plenty of options to configure that space for whatever you might need.
Long Mode – In Long Mode, the passenger seat in the front and the passenger-side seat in the back are both folded down flat to accommodate long and narrow cargo items while still leaving seats for two passengers in the rear. Slide in a ladder for a job or skis for a weekend trip.
Tall Mode – For Tall Mode, remove the headrests and fold up the backseats for tall items. The well of storage space under the seats is revealed and balloons the total vertical cargo space up to 4 feet.
Refresh Mode – Refresh Mode is great when you’re on a long trip and just need a little rest at a pit stop. The front seats fold all the way back and the rear seats recline, making the perfect surface to stretch your legs out and take a nap.
Altogether, this mighty subcompact can handle quite a bit of cargo thanks to its wide stance on the road and seats that can be folded down, up, laid flat, or reclined. With all the seats intact and occupied by passengers, there is still 16.6 inches of cargo volume with access via the hatchback. Change the Magic Seat for different configurations and get more cargo space for large items, small items, and everything in between. With the seats folded all the way down, the Fit has a maximum cargo volume of 52.7 inches. That makes it one of the roomiest vehicles in its class.
There is also plenty of door pocket storage and beverage holders for added convenience and organization. There is a place for everything in the Fit.
The seatback storage and under-seat storage are also mainstays inside the Fit. Slide items or tuck them under the rear seat, and the legroom for passengers in the back won’t be compromised.
The Fit has storage features to make carrying all that cargo a little easier. Features like cargo-area tie-downs can give drivers added assurance that items won’t move around on turns or stops. And a cargo cover can keep items you don’t want seen out of sight or offer protection from UV rays.
