Honda leads the way for boot space

The Honda CR-V, Jazz, Civic and HR-V have been put up against numerous comparable models in each of their segments and have triumphed when it comes to load lugging.

With up to 589 litres of space with the seats up and 1.669 with the seats down, the CR-V has the largest floor area in its class, being singled out by one national newspaper as the car perfect for a “copulating couple” with its outstanding boot space. Just to compare, the average bath uses just 80 litres of water, the CR-V can hold a huge 20 bath tabs of water in the boot with the seats down – or the same as almost 42 average air cabin wheelie bags!

The HR-V boasts 470 litres of usable boot space with the seats up, while the Civic has 477 litres narrowly pipping a French competitor to the post. The Jazz has 354 litres of boot space, with its nearest competitor from South Korea trailing by a massive 51 litres.

Notorious for its engineering excellence, Honda’s designers across all four models managed to create extra space with the ingenious idea of moving the fuel tank. Traditionally located in the rear of the car, the fuel tank takes up precious usable space. By placing it in the centre of the car, beneath the rear seats, Honda have been able to significantly expand boot capacity.

Philip Crossman, Managing Director of Honda UK said: “It’s not just reliability, performance and trust we are framed for. Our clever design and engineering excellence also puts us ahead of our competitors.”
