    Default Can you fit 3 car seats in a Mazda 3

    Hi all I was just wondering if anyone had successfully fitted 3 child seats in a Mazda 3. I have just found out I am UTD with #3. When #3 is born, I will have a newborn, a 2.5yr old and a 4.5 yr old. I am hoping to keep my car, but am not sure if it will be big enough.

    Thanks for your reply, I will look into it. I really don't think 3 will fit, but I will give them a call to find out

    I'm going to say BIG FAT NOOOOO

    i have a madaz 3 and in the back it has a toddler seat and a baby seat front facing and IF there is a person who sits in the middle they cant be big! My dog sit in the middle of both the seats and she is a chinese creatsed powder puff- a small dog- and its perfect fit for her
    There is NO WAY you can fit 3 seat side by side in this car if you do i want a photo and what kind of seats they are

    I just fit 3 seats comfortably across the back of our Nissan Pulsar so could easily do so in a Mazda 3 or similar. It's our second car and it's so handy to do the school/daycare drop off in the morning. Hubby picks them all up in the afternoon in the "family car". We have a 5yr old, 3yr old and 10mth old.

    Mothers Choice Nobel (3yr old), Hipod Milan (10mth old) and a InfaSecure Folding Booster (5yr old). The InfaSecure Ventura would also fit. They are all narrow width car seats and installed correctly, no squishing them in to shut the door. My kids are all pretty big for their age too and look like they'll fit these seats for a while yet. So happy I can have all the kids in safe seats, even if it is only a 3km drive on quiet streets, you can never be too safe.
