Hi,
In the photos of the HRV rear seat folded forward it appears that the resulting cargo surface is at a slight angle. (Note the Honda promo graphics showing the table in the cargo area.) Does anyone know if the removing the rear headrests will alleviate this and make the cargo area completely flat?
Thanks!

Best I can do is compare it to the Fit, which it is supposedly based upon. Both the current (GK) and the previous generation (GE) Fit's fold flat without having to remove the headrests. I can not speak for the first version of the Fit (GD)

photo of fold flat seats

According to this photo, yes the rear seats fold flat. HondaPro Jason's latest video shows the magic seats in action: https://youtu.be/5Cw-giUvq08. Thanks to a previous thread on this forum for posting the video.

I'd like to know how much space there is--length wise--once the rear seats are down. I'm close to 6' tall and I want a car I can nap in comfortably.

Not sure if this picture helps, but it appear to be around 55" long with the back seats down. At least that is the space the bike takes.

I like that picture....it looks really good for cargo space.

In the Honda U.S. preview site you can see the female model place a whitewater kayak in the HRV with magic set and front seat folded down into what they call "Long Mode".

"Fold down the passenger-side front and rear seats, and you can fit cargo up to 8 feet long"

http://automobiles.honda.com/hr-v/#versatility

But that wouldn't make it long enough for a 6' man to stretch out, would it? The kayak is resting up on the folded down passenger seat which is at a higher level that the rest of the cargo floor. The split level would not be very comfortable to lay on.

I did a little looking in to this as well as I'd like to be able to sleep in the back of the HR-V in a pinch or while camping. Looking at the Honda Fit, it seems that most people push the front seats as far forward as they can and tilt the backs forward as well and then lay down at a diagonal to make the best use of space. Not sure about how the HR-V will stack up, but considering that it has a longer cargo floor than the Fit, I would think that you could make it work. Here are some photos....



And I found this cool inflatable bed made to fit the Fit!!! Using the dimensions given for this bed, the diagonal length should be about 6' 10" for the Fit. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Car-...-CIVIC-car-unflattering-Beige/1969115321.html

Thanks Derm,
I didn't think about tilting the front seat backs forward and moving the seat all the way forward on the tracks. I guess you would have to put something to fill in the hole that would result there.
