View Full Version : Can you put bike in new shape fiesta
21st March 2009, 10:35 PM
I'm in the market place for a new small car. Was looking at the new shape Ford Fiesta - 5 door. Seems as though it would have enough room but really not sure. Would alternate between road bike and mountain bike going in the car. Looking at the discussions on carrying bikes, the consensus seems to be the bike is best in the boot. So, has anyone out there used a new Fiesta to carry bikes? Thanks.

Used to have an X-reg fiesta (so not the latest model) and it took a bike with the back seats folded flat and the front wheel off the bike. Gf had a 54plate fiesta till she tried to cut down a tree with it (oops!) and the boot was slightly bigger and a better shape than the older one so I'd imagine a bike would fit but I never put a bike in the back so couldnt say for certain sorry.

I can get my road bike (front wheel off) in the back of an Aygo so you should be fine!

Excellent. Thanks Dai and Chris. May end up going for a SEAT now but similar size boot. Fortunately, both road bike and mountain bike have quick release wheels so shouldn't be a problem. Happy biking!
