Standard windshield wiper controls and then you do have washer button and rear wiper on the end of the stock and then of course this is the the speed okay moving on over to the dashboard what i think is kind of interesting and really nice is that you actually have a wireless charger right here which i would not have expected on transfer that’s really nice you’ve

Got a nice nice sized infotainment screen display and then you have some physical controls you right here you’re gonna be able to access your basic settings that your your base and your treble and your balance rewind fast-forward skip a station player pause and then blank the screen out so if it’s too bright at night you can click that it shuts the whole screen

Off click it again it comes back on in addition to a volume button a power button and then a physical scrolling tune button alright so coming on down here to the climate control system this is a try zone climate control the second row passengers have their own fan speed and temperature controls but otherwise up here you’ve got all just all the standard controls

That you would normally have here’s your fan speed up here these are physical push buttons and then you do have the sink or the dual button if you want to change temperatures back to everything being the same okay over here you’ve got an auto start/stop defeat button right there you’ve got a traction control off or on here and then you do have an eco mode okay the

Shifter i like it’s not a rotary dial it’s just a standard shifter you do have a plus or minus on the side if you want to shift somewhat manually and moving on down here you’ve got your dual usb plugins along with a 12-volt plug in and that will access the apple carplay and android auto on the infotainment system and then you have dual cupholders right here along

With some storage right here and i like it that it’s rubberized a little bit just to give it a little grip okay and then moving back here you’ve got your center armrest storage area which is fairly deep but there are no additional plugins or lights or anything in there but it’s pretty nice for you know it’s not huge but it’s pretty deep which is nice moving on up

Here you’ve got your sister standard light controls for the dome lights in the car all right this is kind of an interesting configuration so if i pull if i push right here i get a glass holder but if i pull here i get a little conversation here so kind of things is nice nice idea to put in there you have very large sun visors when i say large i mean really large

These are like two to three times the two and a half times the size of a normal one hey they’re not backlit but you do have a mirror on each side and then above this you do have some storage so you can put things on top of here long as we’re big enough not to fall through these little cracks right which is nice now the visors are telescoping and of course tilt and

The rear-view mirror is an automatic dimming rearview mirror and then you do have some grab handles on either side in the front right here connected to this bit alright let’s take a step into the second row and take a look at it all right so stepping into the captain’s chairs on the second row this is very comfortable you have plenty of knee room i’ve got you know

A couple inches here i’m set a little crooked but that’s where the seat was so you know about four inches i’ve got about a mile of headroom i can hardly stretch my fingers between my head of course i’m yeah i know i don’t have a lot of hair up there but nonetheless dank you’ve got a nice step through right here it’s a nice wide area to get into that third roll if

You want to use that i like the fact that you have arm rests so you do have dual seat back pockets right here you’ve got 12-volt outlet here you have got a 110 150 watt household plug in and then you do have your own fan speed and temperature control the seats are not adjustable as far as forward and back but there is a lever and it’s right down in here you can see

That one right there i pull that i can recline the seat so i do have some recline and i have a nice arm handle okay so one of the unique things this has is some under the passenger seat storage so you just lift this up you can pull this out and you’ve got a fairly you know probably almost a foot long foot long by you know they have footing three inches wide storage

Right it’s all carpet underneath there and then you can just put the cat back in you know so that you can that latches so it stays in place kind of neat alright let’s let’s step into the third row third row is as small as you’d expect it to be would be good for children or a small adult on a short trip you do have some ventilation vents here which you can turn on

Or off so you have the cup holder down here and then you have some storage down here that i want to show you can’t really see but that’s how deep it is and you could store probably a small child in there yeah don’t do that but i mean it’s really deep and and it’s the same on both sides there are no usb plug ins or anything down here so the one the nice thing about

The bird rear seat is that i move my leg here you can see there is a grab handle so if i spy the seats all the way back i actually have close to four inches of leg space between my knees and the front seat with it set at it you know a fairly normal angle plenty of head space in the third row and when you slide the seats backwards you have very little store space

In the back for luggage but you have lots of legroom so to get out of the third row you can just of course walk back out through the two captains chairs or you have these two pull ropes here okay this first one is gonna lay the seat down flat like this okay you pull it forward and i get to lift the seat up and i can rotate the whole thing forward and it sits down

Nice and flat so you have a little more city just want to sit in the back room and have your legs up on there you certainly cut her just a little more storage room here it’s an interesting configuration but it works and to get it backed up you just have to pull this again pull the whole seat back up and then latch it down and grab this one whole seat backed up thanks for watching you
