General Comments:

Lovable to drive.

The designers made a mistake: you can't remove the rear-seats in this MPV.


Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Really? The rear seats cannot be removed!! Then, remove the designers and go for a flexible designers.

Looking forward for this car with a better seats.

Looking for Toyota Unser, I remain.

What the Belgian person meant is that you cannot FOLD DOWN the rear seat. Rest assured, if you can rip out an ATM, you can remove the back seat of the Kia. You can always look at other manufacturer's cars, but you will not find better prices.

You can remove the rear seats if necessary; just remove the 2 screws. But because the roomy interior it will be rare to do it.
