    Quoted from JimFNB:

    It should fit unless the folded back box is wider than a standard pin. I’ve hauled several pins in my 2015 Santa Fe sport.
    You have to take off the back seat headrests, slide the folded back seats up as far as you can, and then push down hard on the back seats while you slide the pin in. Much easier if you have a helper.

    I'll have to try again at some point. Tried twice now (both Sterns) with same result, yes, removing the head rests and sliding the seat forward (the second time anyway).

    Pushing down hard on the backseats is the key. Then the rear compartment is flatter and the pin stays flat enough sliding in so the back won't hit the headliner and get stuck.

    Here's my post from earlier in this thread -- https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vehicles-that-a-pinball-machine-fits-in/page/14#post-3979772

    I've hauled a Maverick, White Water, MMr, Houdini and Cyclone in my 2015 sport. I always had someone help to load it so I could take care of the back seat thing.

    Anyone have luck with Kia Soul?

    Quoted from JoshODBrown:

    Did you ever figure this one out? I have a Kona and looking at it, I would say no, seems it would be very tight.. however I have not pulled out the tape measure to see.
    Been keeping my rusty old Chevy Uplander for hauling games (pinball and arcade) in the meantime.

    Any update on this. For the price, Kona seems like a good car.

    I own a Soul (actually, I own two) and they do not fit anything but the older EMs because you can remove the head.

    I've heard that you can take a modern pin and take off the hinges and slide the head up the machine so it fits in the car, but I'm too chicken to try that.

    Toyota Highlander 2016 works great.

    I did some rough measurements last night. The vertical clearance in the hatch on the back is about 27 inches. The depth is not quite 5 feet to the back of the front seats. You definitely cannot fit a NIB, but unboxed maybe you could fit it sideways and leave the hatch open a bit. Remove the head and I'm sure you could make it work. Overall, I am not desperate enough to move a game that the Kona would be my first choice. Find a friend with a bigger vehicle, or rent a small utility trailer if you've absolutely gotta move a game in a hurry.

    I still have my old van for now, which has gotten beaten to pieces with all the games I have moved in it over the years. Outside of hauling games, I have no reason to keep my van around and pay insurance on it and keep it maintained, as I have slowed down quite a bit in buying new games the last year or so. I may look into buying a small trailer I can haul with the Kona for those emergency last minute game pickup trips.

    BMW X1 work? What about an Audi Avant?

    2012 soul will fit a pin
    But you need to push passenger seat all the way up and unbolt the head and slide it as far up to the coin door as far as possible
    I have moved 2 wpc and a data east
    All 3 fit with hatch closed but a tight fit
