2018 HR-V 2nd-Row Magic Seat® Functions

One of the most notable features in the 2018 Honda HR-V is the 2nd-row Magic Seat®. A special type of 60/40-split rear seat, the 2nd-row Magic Seat® folds into various seating and cargo configurations for maximized space and expanded versatility. The 2nd-Row Magic Seat® features three cargo arrangements: Tall Mode, Long Mode, and Utility Mode. The special seat also operates like a normal 60/40-split rear seat bench when one of the three modes is not being used. All 2018 Honda HR-V trim levels are equipped with the Magic Seat®. Learn more about each of the three modes below.

Tall Mode | Tall Mode involves removing the backseat headrests and folding the backseat bench in a vertical position. Tall Mode creates up to four feet of vertical space to accommodate for tall cargo items, such as a tall plant or a large painting. 

Long Mode | Long Mode involves folding down the front and rear seats on the passenger side. Long Mode creates a space that runs the length of the cabin and cargo area to accommodate for long cargo items, such as skis or a surfboard. 

Utility Mode | Utility Mode involves folding down the 2nd-row bench. Utility Mode provides maximum cargo space to fit large cargo items, such as a bike or small furniture.
