2020 Armada Interior

Step into the Armada and there's a distinctly old-school feel that is nevertheless homely and luxurious at the same time. It feels spacious and solid, and quilted leather is available but that dated feeling is amplified when you realize that Apple and Android smartphone integration are absent from the otherwise decent infotainment system. If you can look past that, the Armada comes standard with navigation and a powerful sound system from Bose. The seats are also pleasantly comfortable, which is always a win in a vehicle like this.

Seating and Interior Space

In standard configuration, the Armada seats two in the first row, three in the second, and another trinity in the third row. Opt for the captain's chairs that are available on all but the base model and standard on the top trim, and seating drops to 7 passengers, but ease of access to the last row is improved and passenger storage space is increased. There is no eight-seater configuration available. With large doors, numerous grab handles, and standard running boards on every model, getting in and out of the Armada is relatively simple. Ample headroom and legroom are on offer in every row but the third, making squabbling over seating assignments easier to manage. Relegate your youngest to the back if you want to maximize comfort for all. In the front, the driver gets a ten-way power-adjustable seat while the occupant to the driver's right gets eight-way power-adjustment. This allows the driver to get to a commanding driving position with ease, and thanks to large buttons and good ergonomics, changing settings and media playback on the fly is easy.

Interior Colors and Materials

The base model in the lineup features Charcoal fabric upholstery and a glossy wood trim while the next two models, the SL and the Platinum, get perforated leather in either Charcoal or a light Almond coloring. On the top Platinum Reserve trim level, premium Black perforated and quilted leather is overlain on Brown. This model also gets imitation open-pore wood trim and Black Quartz accents.

2020 Armada Trunk and Cargo Space

The Armada is an impressively spacious vehicle with all its seats down, offering up to 95.4 cubic feet of volume. With just the third row folded, you get 49.9 cubic feet, while keeping all seats in place gives you 16.5 cubic feet, a less impressive figure. Fortunately, under-floor storage improves that figure for more than just shopping bags. The third row also folds electrically on all but the base model, but unfortunately takes longer than is practical, begging the question of why you wouldn't leave a manual system in place.

In the cabin, you get cupholders and bottle recesses in each row, but the glovebox is not particularly large and there isn't a convenient spot for your phone. A center storage bin beneath the middle armrest at least offers a place for wallets, keys, and other sundries. If you spec captain's chairs for the second row, you get a center console with more storage and dedicated cupholders between the two passengers.

2020 Armada Infotainment and Features

Features

As standard, the Armada features a rearview camera, hill start assist, cruise control with braking, automatic LED headlights, power-folding heated mirrors, keyless entry with push-button start, dual-zone climate control with vents for each row, heated front seats with power-adjustability, parking sensors, and forward-collision warning with autonomous emergency braking. Available features include remote start, a power tailgate, a surround-view camera, rain-sensing automatic windshield wipers, a power-folding third-row, memory functions for seating, steering, and wing mirror positions, a sunroof, and a rearview mirror display. Also available are heated and cooled front seats, heated outboard rear seats, a heated steering wheel, lane-keep assist, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and ambient lighting.

Infotainment

All variants of the Armada come with a NissanConnect infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen display and navigation. The system is hooked up to a Bose 13-speaker sound system and features SiriusXM satellite radio, HD Radio, Bluetooth audio streaming, voice control, and four USB ports. On the Platinum trims, a rear-seat entertainment system with two eight-inch screens is added. This allows for DVD playback and HDMI input, and comes with a pair of cordless headphones. An additional USB port is also added for a total of five. The screen up front is simple to use and attractive, but is slow to respond and lacks staple features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, neither of which are available anywhere in the range.
