Doesn't the CR-V have that "interrupted" console layout, with the gearshift coming out of the dash, then a floor space, and then a compartment between the seats?
I think the Honda element has the same sort of arrangement. So there is floor space between the seats, sort of.
I can't think of anything quite like you describe--that configuration seems to have disappeared around 2010. Maybe I'm missing something. I'll keep thinking!
