    One of the few things I don't love about my car is the placement of the centre console and the cup holders - they are too far back. Can anyone explain why they put them in this location rather than farther forward?

    But isn't this immediately obvious to everyone? There must be some reason why the placed it there?

    I think it's to protect the 17" touchscreen from mugs and liquids slamming into it during hard braking.

    I expect it was to maximize the open area between the front seats but that's just speculation, of course.
