Cup Holders for Mercedes-Benz
Having cup holders in your car or truck is a must-have for anyone who drinks on the go. These holders can accommodate cups and mugs as well as bottles and cans. No matter what beverage you like, you can find a cup holder for that drink.What things should you consider when buying cup holders?
As you look at drink holders for your Mercedes-Benz vehicle, there are different things to consider.
- Size: Check the size of the holder to ensure it fits your car and your cup size. Some are a little larger and will fit the drinks you get from restaurants and cafes. Others are small and suited for bottles of water or canned drinks.
- Color: You may want to consider the color of the drink holder to find one that matches your interior. Many of these cup holders have a black finish. You will find other colors available too like burgundy, gray, and tan.
- Assembly: The assembly refers to the way in which the holder installs in your truck. Some have a larger assembly that wraps around the cup holder. These models may have organizational space for other items you take with you.
- Placement: You also need to check on the placement of the cup holder or where it goes. Though some fit in the center console, others fit on the sides or in the back seat.
A genuine OEM drink holder is one that Mercedes-Benz itself designed. The term OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, which means the original manufacturer of the car made the parts. OEM cup holders have a model number that tells you which models work with which Mercedes-Benz cars. Some of these mount right into the center console or other areas around the car.Who else makes cup holders?
Mercedes-Benz is not the only company that makes drink holders. Companies such as Dorman, OE+, and WD Express also make these replacement parts. Some of these are direct replacement holders that are exactly the same as those already in your Mercedes-Benz. Others fall into the category of custom or performance cup holders. These models have a custom look that changes the appearance of your interior. Custom products also come in different sizes that can accommodate coffee mugs from home or larger glasses. You can keep your beverage right beside you without worrying about the liquid spilling out and making a mess.Are all cup holders compatible with all Mercedes-Benz models?
Though many of these drink holders will mount in your car, not all are compatible across all Mercedes-Benz vehicles. You may find some designed for specific models like the SL500 or those that are part of the E-Class. Others will only work with cars produced during select years or those manufactured during a range of years. These models have the exact dimensions necessary to fit in your car. You will also find ashtrays and other accessories that you can mount and use inside those holders to store and keep things on hand.
