2018 Honda CR-V Cargo Space and Passenger Room

Back in the 1990s, gas prices were low. With gas prices being low, drivers began to adopt large truck-frame-based SUVs as their primary means of transportation. These vehicles provided maximum versatility, offering plenty of interior space, all-weather performance and a higher ride height.

As prices rose in the 2000s, drivers wanted to drive a vehicle that was easier on fuel and handled better, but also didn’t want to sacrifice the improved cargo storage and safety they had come to enjoy in an SUV. For many drivers, going back to a sedan was simply out of the question.

Enter crossovers.

Built taller and with a larger two-box cabin, crossovers maintained the safety and cargo carriage capacity of an SUV. However, they were built with the same method as a car (unibody), rather than a truck (body-on-frame), so they gave drivers improved fuel economy and handling.

Stylish and capable, the 2018 Honda CR-V is a little crossover with big ambitions and a history of delivering. Standing out from the class of under-designed competitors who are content to be adequate, the CR-V shows a unique and artful take on the versatile automotive segment.

How Much Cargo Space is in the 2018 Honda CR-V?

Following through on the crossover’s purpose to provide enough space for passengers and their stuff, the 2018 Honda CR-V is built for adventure on both the inside and outside. Its large interior space ensures you have plenty of room for whatever adventure gear is necessary, and the seats fold down to give you enough space for transporting larger items.

How much space? Glad you asked.

With all seats up and in use, the 2018 Honda CR-V maintains the following cargo volumes:

  • 2018 Honda CR-V LX cargo volume with seats up – 39.2 cubic feet
  • 2018 Honda CR-V EX cargo volume with seats up – 39.2 cubic feet
  • 2018 Honda CR-V EX-L cargo volume with seats up – 39.2 cubic feet
  • 2018 Honda CR-V Touring cargo volume with seats up – 37.6 cubic feet

With the rear seats folded down, the CR-V reveals itself to be a bit of a paradox, seemingly larger on the inside than it appears on the outside. All trim levels of the 2018 Honda CR-V get 75.8 cubic feet of space with the rear seats folded.

With taller roofs and a greater focus on interior space, compact crossovers usually provide significantly more space than their three-box (sedan/coupe) counterparts. The 2018 Honda CR-V is no exception.
