As for the interior, the new model will feature a very comfortable and spacious cabin, though you might get a feeling that won’t be the case by looking at it. However, the new model will be more than cozy. It will also come with the Magic Seat. This is Honda’s secret weapon: these seats can be folded in various ways to provide enough space for the cargo. They can also be completely folded so that you get an even surface with the floor. The manufacturer paid extra attention to comfort and spaciousness inside the cabin, so we are sure you won’t be disappointed.
