Check 'em out! It's a great system, and couldn't be simpler.
Yep, I think it may actually be easier to open than in the current model, what with the lower part's latch also being somewhere in the middle, just slightly off-centre.

It's this combined pod I was talking about, yes. Think I saw a video or photo in a review or gallery in which it was absent.

Pods are standard in all cars equipped with the manual. Pods are optional in models with the DCT.

Nice! It's funny how often in the last 10-20 years it's been the other way around; where so many manufacturers bundle the tachometers into the auto-transmission upgrade package. Thumbs up to the marketing crew (or whoever it was who set up the option groups) at Smart for that little nugget of sensible option grouping!
