2014 Kia Forte EX: Adjustable Center Armrest
October 28, 2013
Lots of cars have adjustable fore/aft center armrests.
But they aren't all created equal.
The one you see here in the 2014 Kia Forte EX is one of the good ones.
I realized this not so much from driving the Forte, but rather from a recent drive in the 2014 Mazda 6.
Great car, for sure, but its adjustable armrest moves too easily. It kept moving its position every time I, or my passenger, altered the amount of elbow force. Annoying.
No such problems with the 2014 Kia Forte. Its center armrest has more robust locking positions, so you're far less apt to move it back and forth by mistake.
