Not quite zero as this picture proves, but not much:
However, with the 3rd row seats down there is considerable cargo space, plus several pleasant surprises:
1. The higher cargo floor is accessible through the operable rear hatch. Nothing is out of reach unless it has slid forward against the back of the second row seats. We load our smaller items into a cargo net to keep them in place.
2. The second row seats can slide forward another 6", which adds that much space to the cargo area. On a recent road trip that made enough space for an extra row of luggage, including an oversized wine shipment case:
3. The rear hatch is large enough to unload a case of wine, although it requires considerable upper body strength!
Yes, I own a GX, but would own an LX if our garage was large enough. The GX is a tight fit, but doable ... the LX isn't.
