Did you know if you take out the left side rear seat lower cushion, you can get the drivers seat back a little more, (there are 2 nuts I believe they were 13mm, the seat then lifts right out)
I always keep my rear seats folded down, I found all you had to do was take out 2 bolts that hold the rear seat lower cushion, then fold the back down the front seat will go back a bit further.
It also gives you more storage room, on the rear floor under the seat back, I kept small items there I needed.
On my Buick with power seats the electric motor will push the seat back even further than the Trax did.
If you don't need to use the rear seats take both sides lower cushions out, that will open up space for some of the things that you might need to carry, you can now carry them and they will be out of sight.
