The middle section has cup holders, but it is not a center console (i.e. it does not have any storage). We have the LE with the bench seat option (no cost over the captain's chairs). I think the bench seat is the way to go.warrant_ero said:I am interested in buying a SE but my wife was wondering about the middle bench seat. When the middle section folds down is it sort of a center console? Does it have cupholders, I have two girls 6 and 5 yrs old and was wondering if I should get the middle bench seat or upgrade to an LE with captains chairs. If anyone could post a picture of the middle section folded down that would be great, thanks.
