I'd love to see the minutes of the design meeting that signed this useless thing off!!

Time to work on a 'mark 2' version :D

mines broken - the previous owner apparently tried using it :D
Absolutely garbage, cheap, flimsy plastic - not fit for purpose

My wifes DS3 doesn't have a cup holder at all - don't think my daughters Cactus has either. My DS4 has one. What happened to the wine bottle door pocket holders of many year ago?

The 406 coupe cup holders are not great - really small and ideally placed to knock over with your elbow when changing gear

If we can expand the topic to door pockets generally, think the Coupe ones are pretty terrible

Looks huge on the picture, but really quite slim (sunglasses in case take up full width) and pretty deep, so if you drop a pen you have to drag it up the side to get it back. And when you take the door lining off there's plenty of space, could have been a much bigger pocket

Mind you my wife's 3 door 206 has some door pockets that you can't get at with the door closed which isn't great either!

I wonder if the French see cupholders as some kind of decadent American nonsense which shouldn't be encouraged?

Saying that my Alfa doesn't have any either, but they did sell a useless, wobbly £100 accessory cupholder back in the day
