    RDX and XC60 are 2-row, so the comparable Mazda would be the CX-5. The MDX and the XC90 are both more expensive, so I would expect better overall build quality and infotainment/tech. In my own...

    My guess is that it slides and flips forward, but who knows.

    x2 on file size. Resize the photo if you get the "upload failed" message.
