While your car has two cup holders in the front, it also offers two in the back seat. There’s also a center armrest that can be used. Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Slide your fingers into the recess at the top of the middle rear seat where the armrest folds up.

  2. Pull the armrest and cup holder down.

  3. Raise it back when you’re done or when you need to use the center seat.

Tip

Using the rear armrest and cup holder will make the center seat unusable for passengers.
