    Hi, I have six seat config and just got the X a few weeks ago. When 3rd row seats are folded, I think there is some gap between 3rd row headrests and the back of 2nd row seats. With regular SUVs and minivans I don't think there is. They also use some sort of scratch resistant material for the seat back.

    This might mean that if I put some luggage in the trunk area with 3rd row folded, small objects can drop through the crack and/or large stuff like suitcases hit the glossy back of the 2nd row seats.

    What do you think? Have you find out any remedies, like trunk mats?

    I use the Evannex Pet Cargo Cover in my six seater. That solves the issue.

    Thanks for your suggestion! Oh, this solves the issue, but I prefer it to look more OEM... I'm thinking placing a long pillow with Velcro at the end of the folded 3rd row. By the way we call Velcro "magic tape" in Japanese.

    These mats look nice! Could you give me the link?
    BTW this still allow goods in the trunk area to fly and drop in the gap or even hit the back of the 2nd row seats, making scratches there.
