Trunk space is important as too many SUVs are headed towards being hatchbacks which are pretty useless for hauling stuff around. Good point of differentiation in a utilitarian car.

They aren't trying to put a third row of tiny seats back there are they? I saw a set in an X5.

If an SUV doesn't have significant trunk space, I would rather go with a better-riding sedan that has back seats that flip down to access the trunk for long items.
I think the current model has just the right amount to trunk space. Unless you hall things for a living, it is cool. In addition it is a huge amount of space with the seats folded down and the cargo net up.

It's not a big deal. I didn't want them to make it smaller but I think it would have been wise to give every single inch of the 3 and 1/2 inc expansion to back seat legroom...particularly because the front seats can be pushed back. This means the owner has a choice of using it in the front or back.
