The rear armrest is built into the seat. It’s designed to fold up or down. In the up position, you have room for three passengers in the back. With it down, you only have room for two passengers, but you also have additional cup holders. Here’s how to operate it:

  1. Locate the top edge of the armrest

  2. Pull it down

  3. Put the armrest back up when you’re finished using it
