The 1st generation Honda Insight seems tiny compared to anything short of a Fiat 500.
Yet I do a lot of driving with it. Commuting. Shopping. A whole lot of errands and an occasional light haul are all par for the daily course.
As for the hatch… I only use it for the really big stuff.
The proverbial pecking order goes like this.
I use the passenger seat for paperwork and other small items.
The floor is used for the big, heavier bulky items.
If someone needs to ride with me, which is rare, I just put the paperwork on the far left side of the floor or wedge it between the seat and the center panel.
So I’m not much for the ‘junk in the trunk’ club. But what about you? How often do you use your trunk? Or hatch? Or whatever you call that large elongated rear end of yours?
