Default Make storage cubby light brighter?

I have a 2016 corosstrek. The storage cubby at the bottom of the center console (and in front of the stick shift) is very dimly lit but a small LED (I think). Is there any way to swap that out for something brighter? Thanks!

Wait...

2016 models have a light for that cubby?

My 2014 Premium doesn't have that. What's your trim level?

Yah. I have the premium trim level. A lot of stuff was standard on the 16 that was (I guess) upgrades in previous years...including led interior lights.

Jeez, now I have another reason to snoop at the dealership!

As for a brighter light, today's vehicles are surprisingly finnicky with electronics, so although I wish you the best of luck with the light upgrade, I would imagine upgrade options are slim to none. If I were you, I would consult a reputable LED upgrade light company as you may find more relevant information for what you seek.

My 2015 limited doesn't have that either. Sounds like something that got added for the 2016 freshening.
