Easy Fold-Down Rear Seatbacks

The CR-V rear seats are split 60 / 40, so each side can independently fold forward to expand the cargo area. To create a cargo floor level with the rear cargo area, each seat cushion flips forward before the seatback folds forward. This simple procedure involves just one step. While standing by the hatch-way, pulling a lever on the left side of the cargo area will automatically cause the left “60” portion of the rear seat’s cushion to flip forward and its seatback to fall forward. A lever on the right side does the same for the right “40” side. A pull-strap accessible from each rear door opening performs the same function. When returning the cushion and seatback to seating position, make sure you hear each click into place before being used.
