We're coming from a 2005 Acura MDX, and the cargo space is definitely better, especially the amount of space behind the 3rd row when they are up. Behind the second row in the MDX, I had to put my skis diagonal the tips up over the seat near the headrest and the tails down to the floor. In the JX, I tried it out and I can put them flat on the floor a bit diagonal behind the 2nd row. I'm looking forward to next winter's skiing!
the Jx is so big, those wheels don't even look like 20". But maybe its the sidewalls on the tires that making it like that. Sounds like your gonna have a blast with that new found cargo space. enjoy! Me and the wife are still debating. Lookin forward to post some pics too.
