2020 Nissan Armada Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.6

The 2020 Nissan Armada has a high-end, quality interior with plenty of passenger space. However, cargo space is unimpressive for the segment, and some infotainment features feel out of date.

  • "There’s an upscale atmosphere … thanks to things like wood trim, various modern features, substantial-feeling switchgear, quality of the materials, and the exemplary fit and finish." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "Despite its tall entry height and button-rich control layout, the Armada's interior is attractive and accommodating. The cabin is very roomy, the interior fit-and-finish is well worth the price, and the driver enjoys a commanding view of the road." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "Inside, it's difficult to shake the Infiniti feeling, too, with the dash mirroring the QX80's. Major surfaces use soft-touch materials with lots of leather throughout, and wood trim and chrome accents gussy things up further." -- CNET (2018)

Seating

The three-row Nissan Armada can seat either seven or eight people. The standard eight-seat setup includes a second-row bench seat. Optional second-row captain's chairs lower the seating capacity to seven. Standard features include cloth upholstery, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat, and heated front seats.

Aside from the optional second-row captain's chairs, options include leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

The Armada's first two rows provide roomy, comfortable seating. The third row has adequate space for adults, though it can be hard to access.

For installing child safety seats, there are two full sets of second-row LATCH connectors, as well as an additional tether anchor for the passenger-side third-row seat. The lower anchors are easy to find and use, but the tether anchors are more difficult to connect to.

  • "When we use the word 'refined' when we talk about the Armada, we're primarily talking about passenger convenience and comfort." -- Autotrader
  • "In terms of passenger room, the Armada has good headroom in front but is oddly short on legroom, though 6-footers should certainly find enough. There’s no such problem in the second row, which is not only roomy, but wide enough to seat three with the help of a nearly flat floor. … The only potential problems are a tall step-in height – which on our tester was alleviated with running boards – and a huge floor hump under the second-row seat that makes getting to the third a bit cumbersome." -- Consumer Guide (2019)
  • "The supportive front and middle row seats are nicely sculpted with generous padding. … The first two rows provide generous head- and legroom, and even the third row is suitable for adults of average height. The cabin feels wide, too, with a decent amount of door clearance and wide center consoles that help preserve personal space." -- Edmunds (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 Armada include proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system with a 13-speaker Bose stereo, satellite radio, Bluetooth, navigation, HD Radio, and four USB ports. Options include an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, remote start, a moonroof, and a rear-seat entertainment system.

The Armada's infotainment system has outdated graphics and doesn't function as smoothly as more-modern systems do. Unlike many rivals, it lacks Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, even as options. There is a good number of clearly labeled physical controls, but the buttons, knobs, and touch screen can be hard to reach from the driver's seat.

Standard driver assistance features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera. Safety upgrades include rain-sensing windshield wipers, a surround-view parking camera system, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, a rearview mirror camera, rear cross traffic alert, and reverse automatic emergency braking.

  • "Another area in which the Armada is somewhat old school is in the control layout. The audio system boasts volume and tuning knobs along with six physical station preset buttons (yes … buttons), as well as seven more buttons for various other chores. … I personally prefer physical buttons to virtual ones, as you can easily find them by touch. Making further argument for the little 'chiclets' is that the touchscreen is a bit of a reach." -- Consumer Guide (2019)
  • "The switchgear is clearly marked and nicely separated by function, but there sure are a lot of buttons to master. And though the central control dial is a nice idea, it and its surrounding button array are a long reach away from the driver in this admittedly cavernous cabin." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The Armada's infotainment interface leaves a lot to be desired. … The issue is that the infotainment is old, with slow startup times and laggy route calculations in the navigation. It also lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and looks its age with dated menu screen graphics." -- CNET (2018)

Cargo

The Armada has 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind its third-row seats, 49.9 cubic feet with the third row folded, and 95.4 cubic feet with all the rear seats folded. Those values are a little below average for the large SUV class. A power liftgate and power-folding third-row seats are optional.

The cargo floor in the Armada is low, making it hard to lift in heavy items. It can also be difficult to reach deeply into the cargo hold.

  • "A power liftgate opens to a surprisingly narrow 'box' with a high floor (high enough to make it tough for shorter folks to load things in) … The cargo area is tall but rather narrow, with a bit of added storage space under the floor." -- Consumer Guide (2019)
  • "There's a lot of cargo space, and the Armada is rated to tow a fair amount. The main thing holding it back from a higher score is the sheer height of the load floor and the long inward reach that results from the somewhat protuberant rear bumper." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "As expected, cargo space is in high supply. … It all comes in handy for numerous home improvement supply runs and Costco shopping bonanzas." -- CNET (2018)
