Cigarette Light/Accessory Socket on Ignition

I just bought a 2015 Mazda 3 i Hatchback Touring. I'd like to add a cigarette lighter adapter that is powered in the accessory position rather than always on. I'm just wondering if people have determined the best place to wire this in (presumably either the center console or the arm rest), and where the best place to access the wire would be.

Double tap a fuse on the inside fuse box, and run a circuit to wherever you need it.
The 2016 Sport had a USB and a switched 12v where the CD player goes. I hauled my CD and didn't find any other connectors. I'm guessing they use the CD connector for the USB/12v in the Sport cars, but I'm not sure of that.
FWIW the hole in the dash is more useful than the CD player.
