Instead of two captain's chairs with walk-through space between them, the MDX's second row is a 60/40-split folding bench. Each side has a push-button release that lets you slide that side of the seat forward to climb into the third row. That means if you have a child-safety seat installed on the passenger side, you can access the third row from the driver's side and vice versa.
The second row has about 6 inches of forward-and-back travel, and the center portion has a folding armrest, but there is no walk-through provision to the third row.
