    I can fit 5 car seats in my Land Cruiser but I wouldn't want to do up the 2 that sit in the 3rd row. They would need to be able to do up their own.

    I have a Kia Carnival. 7 seater.

    I've had five seats in it at one time.

    It has 5 anchor points. 3 in the back, 2 in the middle.

    I also have a carnival 7 seater but it only has 4 anchor points.. I thought an anchor point wasn't allowed in the middle of the back seat due to the split seat?

    I want to use tethered/isofix

    I know the Kia does but we were after a 4wd with tethered/isofix in the 3rd row.

    I have a 2005 Kia Carnival seven seater, but it only has four anchor points (two in the rear, two in the middle). Whilst the rear consists of three seats, they are narrower than normal and I found two child restraints took up the full width, not leaving any room for even a small child to sit in the middle seat. Therefore whilst mine could easily take four child restraints, that would reduce it to effectively a six-seater rather than a seven-seater.

    I currently have one child restraint in the rear, and two children (aged 9yo & 11yo) use the other two rear seats, and one child restraint in the middle, with the other middle seat being used by a teenager.

    And yes, the rear bench is split into two parts. I put an old soft foam booster in the middle of it for my 9yo to provide extra padding because she complains the split is uncomfortable on her back.

    I have a Kia Grand Carnival 8 seater. Can remove seats from the middle row. 5 Anchor points, so two seats in third row, 2 in middle row.
