Cargo Space in the 2019 Honda Fit

The market for subcompact cars is more competitive than ever, but there’s a big difference in the utility offered by today’s available models. Although the 2019 Honda Fit is only just making its way to dealerships across the country, the fact that it hasn’t changed much since last year means that it’s sure to find receptive drivers wherever it goes. As the writers at Motortrend put it, “No news is good news” here! The 2019 Honda Fit’s cargo space and interior versatility make it the perfect car for the drivers of Metro Milwaukee.

Honda Fit Seating and Interior Configurations

When the experts at wrote of the Honda Fit’s Magic Seat in 2016, they clearly saw what a hit it would be with drivers. Thanks to the Magic Seat, this “subcompact hatchback’s small exterior dimensions hide an interior that rivals the cargo capacity of larger SUVs.” The Magic Seat, which is no less useful in this year’s Fit, can be maneuvered into four distinct configurations. Over the years you’ll spend behind the wheel of your Fit, you’re sure to fall in love with them all.

2019 Honda Fit Long Mode

Long Mode: Most subcompact cars are completely helpless when it comes time to transport cargo that’s too big to fit behind the first row! The Fit, by contrast, can be configured into Long Mode. The Fit’s front passenger seat can lean almost 180 decrees, and when it’s laid down flat with the second-row seating, you’ll be able to transport cargo that’s almost eight feet long.

2019 Honda Fit Tall Mode

Tall Mode: As with many of its rivals, the Fit’s 60/40 Split rear seating can be folded down flat in line with the rear cargo bay. Unlike those competitors, the Fit’s rear seat-bottoms can also be lifted up and locked into place, giving you easy access to Tall mode. With the latter engaged, you’ll have access to four feet of vertical space—more than enough to safely transport a house plant or a bicycle.

2019 Honda Fit Refresh Mode

Refresh Mode: In order to enter Refresh Mode, simply remove the front seats’ headrests and recline these seats all the way to the back! When your Fit’s in this configuration, you’ll be able to lean your back against the rear seats and stretch out your legs across the flattened front seats. It’s the perfect mode for campouts, drive-in movies, and rest stops alike.

2019 Honda Fit Utility Mode

Utility Mode: Even if you don’t realize it, you’re probably familiar with the concept behind the Honda Fit’s Utility Mode — it designates the configuration you’ll enter when you lay both portions of the Fit’s rear seatback flat behind the first row. When you’ve converted your interior into Utility Mode, your cargo bay’s dimensions will expand from 16.6 cu. ft. to 52.7 cu. ft.

Storage Features in the Fit

The Honda Fit’s Magic Seating is certainly impressive, but it’s not the only standard feature that helps the Fit maintain its edge in this market. LX models come standard with front and rear Door-Pocket Storage Bins, a Passenger-Side Seatback Pocket, a Center Console with an armrest and a storage compartment, and a Cargo Area Light that won’t disappoint. Drivers who upgrade to the EX trim or higher will also receive Cargo Area Tie-Down Anchors and Floor Mats. We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the Fit’s ultra-low lift-over height makes it easy to load up your storage bay with heavy cargo.
