Spanish term or phrase: Charola con compartimiento multiuso
This is for a passenger van. What is the charola? Tray is the only word I can find, but that doesn't make sense to me. You could have a tray, but a tray with a compartment?

Explanation:
I would imagine that it is the tray that is often found between the driver's and front passenger's seat. Sometimes it is just a compartment with a lid in which you can put many things, but I have also seen a compartment with a tray top that has grooves or slots for drinks, coins, etc. I think this is what your document refers to.

I suggest 'a multi-purpose compartment with tray top'

console


Explanation:
This may seem quite a stretch, but the fllor board console between the front seats usually has several smaller compartments. There is often a cup holder/tray combination of some sort as well. What country is the document from?
