Storage Ideas?

Hi, all - I think I love my new CX3 Touring, but I'm disappointed that there's really no storage in the front except for the cup holders: I guess I'm used to having a couple of places for sunglasses, extra keys, etc. Other than the glove compartment, has anyone found a good storage alternative, or are you pretty much just using the side door area? Thanks!

Don't take this the wrong way, but I am glad there are no cup holders in the CX3. To me, drinking coffee (or whatever) while behind the wheel is asking for trouble! So I make sure I finish my coffee before I climb in.

Huh? There are cup holders - at least in the Touring - right under the armrest. I would just like to have some center storage, as well.

Take a look in here for the European center console. It appears to have the storage you might want. I wouldn't mind an under the seat storage box either.

I bring a traveler of coffee made at home to enjoy once at work. The cup holder is handy for that.

There is a fair amount of under seat space so thats an interesting option to look into

What other stuff are you planning to stow? I do keep a small bag for coins and other stuff infront. I place it inside the door bottle holder. Check it, it's pretty deep. And besides, not having too much space will keep your car looking clean.

The lack of a cubby hole or small storage area in the dash is my biggest complaint with this car. I used a small bag with a draw string to store change and put it down the side of the door next to the bottle holder.

Looks like that is the place to store stuff! I also have a small canvas bag to store coins, pens, charging cables, flashlight etc that I put in the door compartment near the bottle holder. It works enough for me to not need a center console compartment.
