    Hey guys, I haven’t been on the forum for some time…question for the members. I own a 2016 and want to know if any of you have been successful placing road bikes inside your car? I’m planning to buy a gazelle e-bike, very much like a standard road bike, I don’t have a hitch and don’t want to go through the process and extra stuff involved with a hitch and mount. In the past I’ve been able to get bikes inside my gen 3 Prius and Honda civics. The boot of this Prius looks difficult; lower and maybe a bit smaller. Any advice? Thank you.

    You either have to remove the front wheel or rotate the handle bar 90 degrees to get a bike to fit in the rear with the rear seats folded down.

    I have a 2017 Prime so even a smaller trunk than yours (height wise). I have no problem fitting my Large frame size Giant TCX with full fenders inside the trunk. I simply fold down the rear seats and remove the front wheel.

    Make sure you put it in with the derailleur facing up!

    It depends on the bike size. My 2021 Prime Ltd. with the rear seats down is 60" clear from the front seat backs to the rear of the trunk area and is 36" wide (clear) between where the rear seats latches are. See the attached diagram.

    I took my Cannondale Hybrid to the bike store yesterday. 2017 Prius 4 touring. Turned the front wheel straight up with the bike laying down. Seats folded down.
