How do I use the console box?

You can access the center console for storage or use it for an armrest for you or your passenger.

  1. Pull up on the lever located on the front of the center console. Lift the lid at the same time.

  2. To use the console as an armrest, pull the lid forward and pull up on the lever.

Tip

  • The lid can be opened even when you have it pulled forward.

  • Don’t open the console while you’re driving.
