interior door panels/cup holder questions

I have a 2017 cabrio and the "net" holders on the interior doors [from 2010] has been replaced with "stairstep" permanent pockets.... if that makes sense to anyone. Bottom line, no place to put bottle of water, coffee cup or anything unless you don't mind everything resting at a 45 degree angle. Has anyone figured out how to "flatten the bottom" of that interior door for better storage.
I have coffee travel mugs that do not fit in the cup holders [they got smaller, too & I cracked up when dealer gave me a SMART car travel mug that didn't fit either] haha.
I do not want to break out the dremel to carve away to adapt. The suggestion to create a box for the passenger seat to hold coffee, water, maps, USB thumb drives for music, and other travel comforts is the only suggestion, but no room for passenger is not a solution either.

I was sorry to give up my 2010 and knew that the 2017 was a model change... and from a comfort, stability & "get up and go" it was a wonderful improvement. But getting a red cabrio was a long wait and the whole interior AND electronics has been a BIG disappointment, so I'm wondering how to work with what I have... at least as long as the car payments last --> laughing! :shrug:

Welcome to SCoA! Post some photos after you have 3 total posts. :)
One more thing... on the steering wheel there is an image of mouth speaking [right side, 3pm position] mine does nothing. What is that for and am I doing/not doing something to make that function ... for voice activation?
Does not function on US smarts, as we do not get the Media System the rest of the world does - just like we don't get the adjustable steering wheel and the "real" BRABUS version. It is what it is in smarUSAland....:shrug:
