2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged: Cupholders Done Right
March 25, 2013
Sometimes I get shocked at the pathetic excuses for cupholders manufacturers put in their cars. Case in point, the 2013 Ford Focus ST, which I complained about in an update recently. Take any turn, at any speed, and your water bottle is going for a ride across the car.
Then you get into the 2012 Jaguar XF Supercharged. And you realize, this is how cupholders are done right. It all comes down to anti-tip technology, also known as those flexible but very grippy rubber protrusions.
I tried a couple of different water bottle sizes, and they stayed properly in place.
For those of you who swill back 8.4 oz cans of Red Bull, well, Jag thought of you, too, with that small holder in the center.
So, how come so few get it right? It just doesn't seem that difficult.
