3 of 9

Want your coffee hot and your bottled water cold? Of course you do. Still a rare creature comfort, a cup holder capable of warming and cooling your beverage is the logical advancement of cup holder technology. The Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum's front cup holders, with their heating and refrigeration elements, are an example.

For folks requiring their Big Gulp on the drive home or cup of Joe on their morning commute, they can ensure the ideal sipping temperature.

Also growing in popularity are in-car coolers that can chill several beverage cans or bottles. They are usually located in the car's glove box or center console, and are standard equipment in many car models.
