Interior

The level of luxury inside is pretty high. I found it to be nearly as rich as the larger, more expensive LX. Standout treatments included a leather-wrapped steering wheel and dash, with stitching befitting a Range Rover.

I found the first- and second-row seats to be about average for the luxury class in terms of comfort, perhaps just a bit on the stiff side. The third-row seats now fold flat into the floor of the SUV; the previous setup featured two jump seats that folded to either side of the cargo area. It was this design that flagged the GX as one of the first luxury SUVs to offer a third row, and I think that's why it became so beloved.

As it is, the new GX's third row is nearly impossible to fit into as an adult, even after adjusting the second-row seats, which slide forward. My feet just had nowhere to go.
