You know I thought the same thing at first coming from a Honda Fit to the CR-V.
Intellectually I knew the CR-V was a much larger car, but it felt like it had less storage bits. What I ultimately realized and came to appreciate is that they have different storage options. For example in my Honda Fit I had essentially 2 glove boxes. The Honda CR-V only had 1 (and I was disappointed). That said the CR-V has a MASSIVE center console storage that can store half a dozen ipads, 3 storage cubbies per door (and a cup holder). another storage cubbie in the center console (next to your feet). and another set of cup holders in the center console.
So yeah. I was used to storing my things in different "areas", but I have to admit the
storage options in the CR-V are more numerous.
