2019 Honda Civic Hatchback cargo space proves that roomy cabins can come in small packages. The boldly styled exterior is everything you’d expect from a vehicle so renowned for sportiness, but the interior is practical enough to meet the needs of anyone from active young professionals to busy family drivers.
Whether packing in golf clubs, outdoor equipment, or a few suitcases, the following specs and features are on your side:
Up to 46.2 Cubic Feet of Cargo Space
60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seatback
97.2 Cubic Feet of Passenger Space
Rear Seat Covers
There’s a cabin spacious enough behind the rear seats to ensure you can fill the Honda Civic Hatchback seating capacity without running out of storage space. In fact, you’ll find considerably more standard cargo space than you would in rival models:
Honda Civic Hatchback Standard Cargo Space: Up to 25.7 cubic feet
Mazda3 Hatchback Standard CargoSpace: Up to 20.2 Cubic Feet
Toyota Corolla Hatchback Standard Cargo Space: Up to 17.8 Cubic Feet
While 25.7 cubic feet should prove more than enough for everyday needs, the Honda Civic Hatchback also fits a 60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seatback that lets you extend the cargo area into your passenger compartment. Flip it down and you’ll have up to 46.2 cubic feet to play with.
Cargo space tends to steal the limelight when it comes to utility, but don’t be distracted from the Honda Civic Hatchback’s further range of handy storage solutions. The cargo area alone features:
Built-In Reversible Side-Pull Cargo Cover: Pull the Cargo Cover to prevent passersby spying into the rear of your vehicle damaging UV rays shining through.
Cargo Area Light: When you need to get organized or find something in a hurry, simply flip on the convenient Cargo Area Light.
You’ll also find several smaller cargo nooks across the cabin, including:
Center Console with Sliding Armrest and Storage Compartment
Front and Rear Door-Pocket Storage Bins
Front and Rear Beverage Holders
Passenger-Side Seatback Pocket
Don’t assume the Honda Civic Hatchback’s generous cargo space comes at the cost of passenger space. Passenger volume comes in at a competitive 97.2 cubic feet, and the following specs ensure driver and passengers alike have plenty of room to stretch out and relax.
Headroom: 39.3 inches in the front and 37.4 inches in the rear.
Legroom: 42.3 inches in the front and 36 inches in the rear.
Shoulder Room: 57 inches in the front and 55 inches in the rear.
Hip Room: 53.7 inches in the front and 48.8 inches in the rear.
Cargo Liner: Forms a protective layer over your original cargo area carpeting to prevent wear and tear from sports equipment, shopping, tools, and other such items. You can still move the rear seats independently when the Cargo Liner is fitted.
Cargo Net: The tight-fitting Cargo Net hangs across your cargo area to hold grocery bags and keep loose items from rolling around as you drive.
Cargo Organizer: Made from sturdy canvas that folds down in a jiffy when not in use, the Cargo Organizer divides your items up using several partitions.
Cargo Tray: For more rugged protection, high-quality molded plastic with raised sides and molded-in ribs come perfectly matched to your vehicle’s interior contours – it’s great for those who like to get out into the great outdoors.
Rear Seat Cover: If you’ll have kids or pets in the back seat, protect against anything from dog hair to spilled drinks by fitting durable, water-resistant covers that can be easily removed, machine-washed, and replaced.
Kelley Blue Book sums the Honda Civic up best: “If you’re looking for a smartly styled small sedan that isn’t so small on the inside, has incredibly good resale and reliability ratings and offers a wide range of engine and trim levels, the Honda store is your one-stop shopping destination”.
