Honda Magic Seat® Configurations 

The rear Honda Magic Seat® in the Fit and HR-V give drivers the ability to transform the rear of their vehicle’s cabin into four distinct configurations. Instead of limiting drivers to two options – rear seatbacks up and rear seatbacks down – like other vehicles, these Honda models offer versatility that is key in small vehicles.  

Below we have laid out the four different configurations the Honda Magic Seat® offers. Switching between configurations is quick and simple and drivers will likely find themselves reconfiguring their vehicle’s cabins regularly to fit their changing day-to-day needs.  

  • Refresh Mode – Sometimes the need for a nap can hit you in the middle of your lunch break. The Honda Magic Seat® makes it easy when the front seats are folded back and the rear seats are reclined for ultimate comfort.    
  • Tall Mode – When drivers need to fit taller items in the back of their vehicle, they can remove the rear head restraints and flip the rear Magic Seat® up to make room for taller cargo items like potted plants. 
  • Utility Mode – When loading up your vehicle with bulky cargo, Utility Mode is an ideal configuration. The Magic Seat® folds down to offer up a flat surface for cargo loading.   
  • Long Mode – If you need to carry a longer item, like shelving or a snowboard, you can fold down one side of the Magic Seat® and the front passenger seat to make room for lengthy items.
