Your car has quite a few handy storage areas built right into the cabin. These are designed to provide you with the ability to store almost anything you need safely and prevent items from being left on the floorboard, or where they might roll off a seat and cause a safety hazard. Here’s a quick rundown of the various storage areas in your vehicle:

  • The rear cargo compartment (the single largest cargo area available to you)

  • The glove box

  • The front cup holders

  • The second row seat cup holders

  • The overhead storage console (sunglass holder)

  • The auxiliary box located above the glove box

  • Bottle holders for the third row seats (located on the side panels)

  • Center console/console box
