Kia Forte: How to Fold Rear Seats

I recently rented a Kia Forte and could not figure out how to fold the rear seats down. I searched around for a lever or button to no avail. I began to wonder if folding the seats was possible at all. Fortunately, I discovered a way to do this from the trunk of the vehicle.

  1. With the trunk open; pull the left and right levers separately, found on the upper-left and right sides of the trunk.

  2. Open the back seat doors and push the seat forward.

That’s all there is to it! You have successfully folded the rear seats down on the Kia Forte.

** If the seat does not push down immediately, repeat the steps until the seats are down. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
