What happened to the cup covers?
 
1 Attachment(s)
This view showed up early on for both the Limited and Overland, but I haven't seen the covered cup holders in any recent promo materials or on a lot in any model. Does anyone know if this is still an option, or was it just concept that never made it into production? Would have looked sharp I think.:cool:

Was a concept. I would assume because it limited the size up the cup it could hold.

I like the look of covered cup holders....but I bet they figured it wouldn't work in North America.

I would have left it open anyway as my refillable travel cup lives in one and pump Purell lives in the other.

It probably had to due with durability of the door in that location plus with the side door open there would be a big gap where the door opens into for things to fall into and you'd have to take the whole console apart to get at.

Mercedes does a lot of hide away cup holder things.

The Germans tend to; their cupholders also tend to not swallow the mammoth drinks we get from the convenience stores here in the US. In Germany, eating/drinking while driving is generally frowned upon and isn't as commonplace as in the US and Canada- of course, our road trips will often be far longer than theirs, so it's more of an issue here.

As for the GC holders and the door, I think the production version with the bare but lit ones looks very nice and are very functional; there's nothing to break and no places to lose M&Ms down in the cracks. :D

view it as one less thing that could break/not work properly or damage. they use a spring loaded system that often fails after long use. and yea the illuminated cup holders to me adds sophistication and class.

In Germany they don't order a bucket of cola with their hamburgers...

I'm not a fan of our cup holders because they cannot accommodate my daily, required dose of cold caffeine:
