2014 Nissan Rogue: Armrest Report
August 18, 2014
I don't know if I have particularly bony elbows or what my problem is (don't answer that last question) but I pay special attention to armrests, both door and center, and how well-padded they are.
I absolutely can't stand it when I get into a car and there's either near-zero padding or your elbow falls readily onto a piece of plastic trim.
So: how are the armrests in the 2014 Nissan Rogue?
The answer: Excellent, and only okay.
The door armrests have plenty of thick padding, so much that it seems no matter how hard you press on it you never find the bottom. Perfect.
The center armrest is nice and wide, but is only marginally padded. It doesn't take much elbow pressure to hit hard plastic. Not sure why Nissan did such a great job on one, but fell short on the other.
