The Honda Civic is the only sedan in HOURCAR’s fleet, but that doesn’t mean it’s skimpy on space. It comfortably seats five adults with a nice sized trunk (the hybrid versions have smaller trunks).

45 hybrid / Cargo: 13 cu.ft., 11 cu.ft. hybrid


The Honda Element is an awesome car. It fits four people comfortably, but the rear seats can be folded up creating a space nearly as large as a pick-up bed. The Element is a van, SUV, and pick-up all combined into one strange and practical creature.

USB: none / BlueTooth: none / MPG: 22/ Cargo: 25.5 cu.ft., 75 cu.ft. with seats folded


The Honda Fit is a sprightly hatchback that gets its name from the quickly expandable cargo hold. By simply folding the rear seats into the floor, a bicycle, some plywood or a Thanksgiving feast can be stashed away

USB: most/ BlueTooth: none/ MPG: 31/ Cargo: 21 cu.ft., 57 cu.ft. with seats folded


The Insight is Honda’s take on a Prius. In many ways the Insight is similar to its competitor, but the interior is space-aged and you can be the cool kid on the block by driving a hybrid that’s NOT a Prius.

USB: none/ BlueTooth: none/ MPG: 41/ Cargo: 16 cu.ft., 32 cu.ft. with seats folded


The Scion xD is a fuel-efficient, peppy and, dare we say, cute, hatchback. With its youthful nature and sizable cargo space, the xD caters equally well to a night out on the town or a day spent at Costco. It’s also the car of choice for our member services supervisor.

USB: all/ BlueTooth: most/ MPG: 29/ Cargo: 11 cu.ft., 36 cu.ft. with seats folded


Whatever your moving needs, the Ranger (72″x54″ cargo bed) or Tacoma (73″x56″ cargo bed) will be your friends. The Ranger has two side-fold rear seats for two (small) friends.

USB: Tacoma only/ BlueTooth: Tacoma only/ MPG: 21 Tacoma, 17 Ranger


The Mazda5 is a mini mini-van, which makes it fun to drive compared to its full-sized cousins. That said, it’s still very versatile with 2-2-2 seating. Fold the rear seats down to increase hauling capacity.

USB: most/ BlueTooth: none / MPG: 24/ Cargo: 44 cu.ft. with third row folded


The Toyota Prius is the mainstay of the HOURCAR fleet, and for good reason: it’s one of the most fuel-efficient cars on the road. The Prius also get high marks for practicality with its surprisingly roomy trunk.

USB: most/ BlueTooth: most/ MPG: 50/ Cargo: 22 cu.ft., 40 cu.ft. with seats folded


The Sonic is a small hatchback, similar to the Honda Fits that we currently have.  The Sonic offers a responsive and peppy engine but maintains a quiet cab experience. Its has great visibility and it’s 48 cubic feet of cargo area is very usable. Additionally, the car is equipped with modern features like Bluetooth, Apple Car play and Android Auto, a rear back-up camera, and lane departure warnings

USB: all/ BlueTooth: yes/ MPG: 38, City:28 / Cargo: 48 cu.ft. with seats folded/ Apple Play, Android Auto: yes, Rear Back-up Camera: Yes
