Hello! My mother in law has an HRV (I'm not sure which year) but her center console cup holders are too large for the thermoses she uses and has expressed interest in an insert of some kind to make them smaller. Does something like that already exist? My googling has mostly just produced mats to insert for easy clean up and nothing to actually allow her to adjust the size of the opening.

I purchased an insert off eBay (search for "Auto Car Water Cup Holder Storage Boxes Container Tray For Honda Vezel HR-V HRV"). I haven't received it yet because it's still on the boat, but it appears to have both pros and cons. It will take up one of the cup holder slots, but it should also give some additional storage/organizations options that the HRV severely lacks. If your MIL doesn't often have passengers in the car that would want the second cup holder, it could work for her.

So the 2019 HR-V has an updated cup holder that allows for smaller cups. It is so much better!! I wasn't sure if it would fit in pre-2019 HRVs so I didn't order it from the dealer.

After doing some research, I found out that the Japanese HR-Vs have always had the updated cup holder since the HRV came out and so I took a chance and ordered the part from Japan.

It successfully fits my 2016.

Part# is 77230-T7A-003ZA and it can be ordered from Amayama.com

Grand total with express EMS shipping to either USA or Canada is under $100USD.

The only downside is that the console has to be flipped upside down to change the assembly so the installation might be expensive. I think I paid about $100 for the install from my local mechanic.

Here's a video of how it works (starts at 00:26)

I just bought a used 2018 HRV and had the same issue. I also could not find any good parts to buy online (which is honestly baffling to me but whatever lol). My solution is going to be to buy two pen cups from the office supply section. If they both are in there, they will keep each other from tipping over. Not perfect, but better than nothing.

It may be worth contacting the Mexican factory, or get your dealer to do it, and see how much they charge for the part.

I have a 2016 Mexican built HR-V and I have the same multi adjustable twin cup holder arrangement as in that cockwombles 'Slushie' video, except my centre console is piano black.

Couple of things to note; the split floor is not for holding items in place, if you push it down far enough they automatically lock against the side giving you enough space to hold a large Thermos. The arm/prong he activated by pressing the button (there is another one on the other side) is used to hold items in place. The split level floor automatically reverts back to the upper level when you depress the arm/prong release button. However, it will stay at the lower level if you have a bottle or something in there.

Also, in his video the removable plastic divider is missing. If you look at the image above, you'll see with the split level at its highest level it is flush, this is due to that divider being in the middle .

I went the route that Michael listed above but instead of ordering the cupholder and shipping it from Japan I ordered the factory one from a 2020 model from my local Honda dealer. It looks just like the one he has posted above and I have to say is my favorite cupholder ever. It has so many options, and even spaces to hide things under your cup of you want. The install was tricky and unless you are very mechanically minded I would recommend getting a professional to install it. I work with cars all day and it still took me about an hour and a half to install it. Once it was in it looks completely stock though. It is a pricey though at just under $100.00 from Honda (part # 77230-T7J-H01ZA is the part # if ordering from a US Honda dealer)
