I’ve had my Cool Vanilla PT Cruiser GT for a whole year now, and so far the ownership experience has been great. The car has been robust and reliable, reasonably fun to drive with its 205-hp motor and GT-specific suspension, and is stylish both inside and out with a lot of character.
But one of the things I have been appreciating most about this retromobile is how capacious it is! Witness its “magic” seats and rear parcel shelf that give it a versatility unmatched by many vehicles.
Now, Honda calls the rear people-holders of its Fit “Magic Seats,” but I think that description is apt for the PT Cruiser as well. Probably more so because the PT Cruiser’s seats can do one thing that the Fit’s cannot, which is to be completely removed. Then the PT Cruiser practically becomes a mini cargo van with a completely flat floor.

This is the most useful images of cargo space for a hatcback that I have ever had the pleasure to read. I'm looking for a car for my dog and his agility equipment and no other review has been so thorough of any make and model of HB in showing the cargo space and how to make it flat, etc. A big MAHALO! to the author of this review for adding these images. Aloha, from Hawaii.
Thanks for the feedback, Sue!
I was on vacation in Hawaii earlier this month. What a beautiful state. Aloha and mahalo!
One thing I didn't see here was a picture of the storage bins, wonder if yours has them. Mine (bought used) didn't come with them, so am looking for them - I understand both the driver and passenger seats will take them, even if only the passenger one was OEM equipment.
I remember the storage bin underneath the passenger seat. I should have taken a photo of it.
One anachronism was the slots for compact disc cases. But the bin was large. I should have mentioned that in the article.
Good luck finding one for PT Cruiser!
