Small cups though Al, and right next to the USB sockets and where I have the iPod!! Plenty of space in the doors though not specific cup holders, but with the shape of the door pockets they can hold a cup.
Jinx, just getting the other two back onto the car, the cup holders are not really that useful. Liquids and electronics do not mix, and they are right between the gear stick and the USB sockets where most of us will have something plugged in as no CD player in the car.The door pockets though are good enough and out of a damage liability zone. I just went out and checked in case I had missed any but nope. The two that do exist are easy to remove as the plastic shape is just an insert.A much better place for wallet, sunglasses etc.
The cup holders came as standard in mine, i advise taking some big sips out of the cup so its half full!! - as my full can nearly went everywhere the other day! it has quite a good grip too as when i pick the can up the cup holder comes up with it! i have now took them out to make use of the bigger storage area
This thread reminds me of a Fiat Grande Punto that I had.The cup holders were at the front of the centre console under the bottom of the dashboard so you couldn't actually get a decent size cup in them.
