Now that the rear door is hatchback you lose the opening split glass top hatch, which was not that easy to use.
The rear side opening door with the spare wheel as been replaced with hatchback, with the spare wheel now located under the boot floor, which reduces the length of the Honda CR-V and it also makes it easier to access the boot. Now that the rear door is hatchback you lose the opening split glass top hatch, which was not that easy to use.
The boot will accommodate 556 litres of luggage to the window line with the seats in place, with the rear seats tumbled forwarded this increases to 955 litres. Load space length has been increased measuring in at 925mm with the rear seats in place and slid back to their rearmost point, rising to a total length of 1375mm with the seats fully folded.
We found the versatile double decker cargo shelf is an excellent feature - it allows you divide the boot into two sections - a lower luggage zone let's say for heavier luggage, with the upper section being kept for delicate items or those you need to hand, perfect for family holidays. The divider can be easily removed and stored in the car should you need the height of the normal boot.
To protect your luggage from prying eyes there is a tonneau cover, which can independently move with the sliding rear seats to keep everything covered up.15 October 2008
