2017 Honda Fit Cargo Capacity, Seating Configurations, and Storage Options

  • 2017 Honda Fit

    It’s technically a subcompact car, yes, but we think the 2017 Honda Fit cargo capacity, storage, and seating configurations will leave Mid-Michigan drivers thinking it must be bigger on the inside than the outside. With the Honda Magic Seat, a spacious interior, and a handful of clever storage spaces, the Fit is a great fit for the modern driver on the go, a budding family, or a small business.

Passenger Space

The Fit goes head to head with quite a few subcompact cars that claim to seat up to five passengers, but with Honda’s 95.7 cubic feet, the Fit approaches the passenger space of its big sibling, the Honda Civic. Whether you have passengers in all five seats or some mix of passenger and cargo, the Fit has room for everyone to get comfy:


Honda Fit Front Passenger Space

Front passengers can sit tall with up to 39.5 inches of headroom, stretch out with as much as 41.4 inches of legroom, and settle in for a long ride with 51.5 inches of hip room.

Honda Fit Rear Passenger Space

Rear passengers have almost as much space with 37.5 inches of headroom, 45.1 inches of hip room, and 39.3 inches of legroom—with a storage space underneath for their things.


The Fit makes full use of its 95.7 cubic feet, despite its sleek build letting it zip through alleyways and parallel park with ease.

Cargo Capacity

When you fill up all five seats, you might need a little more room for everyone’s things, and the 16.6 cubic feet of cargo storage space should have you covered for purses, backpacks, groceries, and more. If you need to get a bit more creative with storage space, however, there are multiple compartments:

  • Under-seat storage
  • Seatback storage
  • Console storage
  • Door pocket storage

The Fit’s available rear cargo-area tie-downs make it easy to keep everything secure, too. And if you need more than these storage compartments and the 16.6 cubic feet under the hatch, the Honda Magic Seat is here for you.

Four Magic Seat Seating Configurations

If you haven’t seen how quickly it transforms the interior of a vehicle, the name “Magic Seat” might sound a bit ambitious. We’ve shown driver after driver how quickly and easily it is to move from hauling cargo to transporting friends and family, and we still feel like it’s magic. With these 2017 Honda Fit seating configurations, it’s ready for whatever life throws at you—even a bit of relaxing:


Honda Fit Utility Mode

Utility: The simplest Magic Seat mode, Utility folds down the full rear seat (you can also fold down just part of the 60/40-split folding seat), expanding the cargo hold from 16.6 cubic feet to a staggering 52 cubic feet—that’s enough for small furniture, the band’s instruments, or a few bikes.

Honda Fit Long Mode

Long: When you need to move longer gear, like a kayak or a 6-foot ladder, fold down the passenger seat and the passenger side of the Magic Seat to unlock a long channel to store your gear, sliding it easily in and reaching from the glovebox to the rear of the vehicle.

Honda Fit Tall Mode

Tall: Some cargo can’t be laid flat, and the Magic Seat’s Tall Mode gives you up to 4 feet of vertical storage. Unlike most vehicles, the Fit can make room for a large plant, a lamp, or a flat-screen TV by folding up the rear seat and setting your gear on the rear floor.

Honda Fit Refresh Mode

Refresh: New for 2017, Refresh Mode lets you relax. Pull over to the side of the road, recline the front seats, and slide into the back to kick your feet up and take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for just a bit.


Between these four Magic Seat modes, the multiple other storage compartments, and the Fit’s incredible interior volume, we think you’ll understand why it’s called the Magic Seat the first time you use it.
