We had covered cup holders in the Nissan Armada that we sold for the GC. They looked nice, but the folding door ended up getting in the way of any cup with a handle (travel mugs or standard coffee cups). They even had an indention for the handle, that was then blocked by the open door.
It was clear that the door was a last minute add, and not well thought out.
I much prefer the lighted cup holders - very well done.
