    Was just checking some things out in the car when I noticed I couldn't find the cup holders in the back seat as mentioned in the brochure.

    Do you have them?

    Have you got the load through armrest, they fit cupholders in this on a sprung loaded pop out part on allot of cars with rear armrests.

    That's only on the 3 door, or if you have the through-load they will be on the armrest in the 5 door. There are none by default in the sportback, just storage bins in the doors.

    No, I don't have the armrest (I know it contains the cup holders) but in the brochure (page 22) it doesn't state that the 2 rear ones are only in for the 3-door.

    Oh well never mind.

    You're right, that's a typo in the brochure. It should say 3 door only.

    Must be a copy/paste error from before the brochure included the sportback lineup I guess. I've seen photos of them in the 3 door, but they'd be in the way of rear doors.

    At first I thought they made another mistake on my car...as my seats are the wrong colour.
