I don't think so. There's a bin instead of ashtray...think that's the choice.

But, see Delmarco's rear seat cupholder mod...you have to be brave to do this!

Take out the ash tray. It holds two cans perfectly.
However the console isn't wide enough to hold two drinks side by side

If you are looking for a solution for the rear seat passengers, and no one's in the middle seat, I found this Rubbermaid product which works great for my two daughters:

http://www.rubbermaid.com/category/p...od_Id=RP092006

Instead of hanging it from the headrest, l loop the strap around the rear center fold down armrest.

I'll try and post a photo.

The goo news is it was really cheap, maybe $10 or $12. The bad news is I don't see many places to buy it online, I'm wondering if it's been discontinued. I wouldn't be surprised, since it looks pretty dubious when used on the seat back - it kinda swings freely, which makes me think it's gonna drop it's load, even though it's probably fine.

Here a link to a cupholder but it's not deleteing the ashtray, pretty handy though.

Also if you scroll down to Danoff he shows it in use. Here is the link for that:
