You might want to search through the Q&A's. I think I remember someone had a Kia and was able to fit in their car.
The box is pretty small. I measured 22" tall, 30" long, 12" wide/deep. I am sure it would fit just fine in the back seat of your car.
It weighed about 65lbs.

We have a Ford Windstar Van with the back seat removed. Ours was fully assembled when we picked it up. If assembled, I would doubt that is would fit in your car or any car. However if you want to assemble it or have someone you know assemble it, then it is more likely to fit. Measure your depth, height, and length of your back seat or trunk, then check the dimensions of the package or ask at Wal-Mart. Or, you could have a friend with a truck or Van help you pick it up. It is really nice to have Wal Mart assemble it before pickup. Hope this helps. It's a great Bike!

Adjusting the seat to move forward was a little irritating, being that I had to twist and turn the entire seat area to get it to move. It's nothing like pulling a lever and having a quick adjustment. And even moved all they way forward, I could not reach the pedals.(I am 5').
