I am really happy with the cargo room on the MDX. On a long trip out east over the holidays, it was amazing how much stuff we packed in the back. This past weekend - a trip to Home Depot. I didn't get any photos but I packed 12 bags of mulch, 4 bags of topsoil and our baby stroller all into the back (and could still see out the back) while not removing the cargo cover (retracted only) and not moving the second row seats. It was nice to know that if I needed more room I could have still folded down the 30% portion of the second row and not have to move the car seat.
