Depends on the company you go with. Some will give you a certain amount of free tows per year for free.
For longer trips, a spare tire would be better but for short ones you can probably forgo the spare and just take a repair kit with you.
That's true. I've taken my spare tire out but I don't really go far distances. I can see how it could come in handy when making a long haul. A repair kit is a good idea too though, never thought about getting one until now
Just realized that the odd four portion tray sits deeper into the cargo area. Looks like you'll have to remove the base cargo cover before installing that tray, that just seems so inconvenient and useless.
Does anybody know if it is possible to remove the cargo tray/s so that the net capacity for suitcases and trolley is bigger?
I think that Kia claims to have 430 liters of boot capacitiy but my own estimation with the standard setup is much less.
It's either they designed it in such a way to be removeable for that exact purpose or you have to remove it in a way where your basically uninstalling it, but even then that shouldn't be too hard or time consuming, simple tools get the job done.
