From the outside, it does not look like the 2014 Lexus GX 460 can seat 7 occupants on 3 rows of seats. Some 3-row SUVs are appropriately massive looking, but the GX does not search like it must have sufficient space for 3 rows. It does, but just barely.
2014 Lexus GX 460 Expert Overview
Behind the third row is a skimpy eleven.6 cubic feet of cargo area. Automobiles.com reviewer Mike Hanley says the cargo area behind the third row is not very usable due to the fact the third row almost touches the rear window. There is not a lot room for taller objects given that the third row and window virtually meet. Folding the third row uncorks 46.7 cubic feet on its way to a greatest 64.7 cubic feet of cargo room.
The Land Rover LR4 and Audi Q7 offer you far more complete cargo room with 90.3 cubic feet and 72.5 cubic feet, respectively, however the GX is slightly ahead of the LR4 and Q7 with a lot more cargo area behind the third row LR4 is 9.9 and Q7 is 10.9.
See how well typical things fit into the cargo area in the animation beneath.
