I found this vent mount cup holders that work very well, it is not a perfect fit thanks to the unconventional vents of the CX-3, but it works and it holds up. This was about $5 on Amazon so I figured I would try it and see what happens. Now a can or bottle is much more accessible, and the cup holder folds up when not in use so it doesn't get in the way. It also doesn't look terribly out of place. There are other vent mount cup holders too but they look very bulky and don't fold up, this seemed like the best out of all of them. I'm pretty happy with it. :)

The circular vents is actually kind of fragile and may break. When we first got these cars in the dealership a master tech and I were exploring the interior and he mentioned that those vents are very easy to break and somewhat expensive to replace so im hesitant on using these mounted on the actual vent loovers things.

Yeah that's my concern, our vents seem really cheap and fragile. I would've preferred to put it on the hidden vent but it doesn't fit there.

I have a phone holder similar to your cup holder that clamps onto this vent.

If you don't mind the ugliness, I used a bit of blue-tak and shoved it between the vent "holes" to hold it in place; it provides a little reinforcement but it does block like half the opening, lol.

Haha I might try that to make it more stable. I'm even thinking of using some non-permanent double sided tape to secure the bottom of the cup holder to the leather piece on the dash. That would put less pressure on the vent hopefully.

Maybe something like this?

That would be nice, somebody has to make CX-3 specific accessories like that soon.
