2nd-Row Magic Seat®

What’s the Benefit?

HR-V opens up a world of possibilities for its owners, thanks to its exceptional versatility.

The Feature:

The HR-V vastly expands one’s capabilities with its 60/40 split 2nd-Row Magic Seat®.

  • It can be configured in numerous ways to adapt instantly to a wide variety of circumstances and needs.
  • If you’ve got a crew along for the ride, the HR-V’s 2nd-Row Magic Seat® is ready to accommodate.
  • With the seatbacks up and the seat bottom down, HR-V provides room in the rear for up to three passengers to cruise comfortably.
  • Since the seatback is split 60/40, you can even carry one or two passengers while still extending your cargo-carrying capacity by folding down one side or the other.
  • Its three distinct modes make for extraordinary functionality:
    • UTILITY MODE: The Utility Mode will probably be the most used of the HR-V’s many seating configurations.
      • This mode allows for maximum cargo capacity26—up to a cavernous 58.8 cubic feet to be exact.
      • The seat can easily be folded with levers accessible from the rear of the vehicle or the rear doors.
      • Thanks to the low lift-over height of the hatch and low floor height, large and heavy items can be easily loaded. Four tie-down anchors make it easy to secure cargo as well.
    • TALL MODE: The Tall Mode is another useful cargo-carrying configuration for tall items that need to remain upright, such as a large plant.
      • This would also be useful for bringing an uncrated dog along, since the side-door entry is even lower than the rear entry of the vehicle, making it easy for most dogs of any age to get in or out.
      • With almost 4 feet from floor to ceiling, the space can even accommodate a mountain bike with its front wheel removed.
    • LONG MODE: The Long Mode is perfect for those who need to carry long items like lumber or a stepladder, or even recreational items such as surfboards or musical instruments.
      • Simply fold down the rear seat on the passenger’s side and tilt the front-passenger seat all the way back, and you will have up to 8 feet of room.
      • The HR-V’s Long Mode accommodates bulkier items without the need for a roof rack.
