According to Car Top Mook (magazine)--recently brought back by the Missus--the trunk dimensions are:

A. Rear Door Opening, Height: 90cm (35.4in)
B. Rear Door Opening, Width: 118cm (46.5in)
C. Trunk Length, Rear Seats Down: 164cm (64.6in)
D. Trunk Length, Rear Seats Up: 78cm (30.7in)
E. Trunk Width, Between the Wheel Wells:102cm (40.2in)

Notes:
A. The trunk is both deeper and higher than the Rear Door Opening.
B. Widest point.
C. Don't know if front seats are foremost or backmost (or, somewhere in the middle).

Veeeery interesting..........any data in the magazine about the driver's seat legroom? That could be a deal breaker due to my arthritic knee and I can't make any decision w/o that info. Thanks

HR-V Legroom

Not that I can find in that mag, but I'll check her other sources ...
Many thanks, please do check and let me know.

FYI: I just got back from checking comparative legroom(s), again, at my local Honda dealer....2015 Fit (41.4") just won't work and, just for comparison, a 2014 Civic sedan (42.4" according to the salesperson) was BARELY/maybe adequate, if that. Of course, as I expected, they have no idea, either, re the HR-V #. (On the other hand, a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, at 43.5", was fine in an earlier personal test I've done.)

The JDM Vezel Brochure gives front headroom as 985mm, rear as 900 to 945mm, but no legroom numbers ... may be something embedded in the narrative, but I'll have to ask, as I can't read Hiragana ... sumimasen.

The Vezel brochure I have doesn't have many interior dimensions, and I think the ones they have are meausured differently than we're used to. Really disappointed Honda hasn't released more specs. I can understand not having EPA numbers yet, but they certainly know the legroom etc.

:(I was told by Honda Customer Service today (11/21/14), after the helpful young lady checked with higher ups, that NO specs such as legroom, etc. will be given out until the HR-V is released for sale!!!! I think that's nuts and will have to change, but, at least for now, what was given in this week's press release is it.

No front legroom specs, but amazing what you can find out about the Vezel using Google Translate.

"Plan B" It Is, HR-V I hardly Knew Ye!

:(
I meant to also add that the legroom was similar to the Fit in both front and back.
(See my #'s 2, 4 & 9 above for background.) I fear you're right that HR-V legroom will be close to the Fit's and my knee needs much more than that. Since I wasn't willing to wait months for Honda to (likely) confirm my suspicions (see #9 above), I've proceeded with "Plan B".

Today, I ordered a loaded 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Limited. I got a very nice below-invoice price and more than I expected for my trade-in. Since the 2015 XV's are just starting production in Japan, ETA is in January. I can wait.

Wish all of you Happy Holidays and the best with whatever car you buy.

Kind of going back a bit here, but I found this information very valuable.
I was concerned about the opening matching my Scion xB. The Scion XB has a taller opening , but because the floor is raised above the sill it equals the HR-V.
Thanks!

I put this up awhile back on this thread (http://www.hrvforum.com/forum/289-honda-hr-v-general-discussion/1689-hr-v-vezel-webpage-dog-owners.html)

Measurement Fit / Vezel / CR-V

Cargo Area Depth (Back Seats up) 26.77" / 31.5" / 37.40"
Cargo Area Depth (Back Seats down) 59.45" / 64.41" / 61.81"
Cargo Area Width (Between wheels) 40.16" / 38.58" / 47.13"
Cargo Area Height 38.19"/ 35.43" / 38.78"
I am confused......the Cargo Area Depth (Back Seats down) is larger on the HR-V than the CR-V?

These measurements come from the Japanese site at the start of that particular thread, but they didn't have the floor length. I found the floor length measurement here using Google translate (http://www.honda.co.jp/factbook/auto/VEZEL/201312/P13.pdf). They measure the length of the cargo area on the floor. I think the difference comes from that in the CR-V, the rear seat bottoms fold forward first, and then the backs come down. This actually makes the load floor shorter in length than the HR-V.


I actually prefer the older method of how the CR-V seats folded where you got the flat load floor, though you still get the shorter load floor issue....

OK Derm....I thought it was something like that.


When I saw the CR-V at the auto show, I didn't like that you couldn't fold the front passenger seat back even close to flat being that the rear seat cushions stick up.
