    The height thing is purely a recommendation. Legally you don't have to comply with it, just with the age criteria.

    Are you certain they wont fit?
    I have a smallish Toyota hatchback and i have a Strider capsule (for newbie due in a few days), a Hipod Senator (for my 2.5yo) and a Babylove booster (for my 5.5yo, used with a lapsash). I didnt think it would work, but it does. Capsule is behind the passenger, then the 2.5yo then the 5.5yo behind the driver as i have to buckle him in with the lapsash each time.

    Just because they turn 7 doesn't mean they don't need a booster. If they don't meet the 5 step test (145cm, lap belt low on hips, sash belt over chest not against neck and knees over the edge of the seat) then they must stay in a booster.

    For belly bub I would skip the capsule and buy a Infa Kompressor, it's a narrow compact seat with a narrow base.

    I have 3 in the back of an outback. One is in a booster seat with the seat belt only.
    Hi,

    May I ask what model Outback you have? We have an Outback and while there are no plans for a third. (😔), I would love to know that 3 seats for across.

    Thank you!

    My baby is almost 1 and still rear facing. I am not sure how it will fit when I turn her, hopefully can hold her out until my son is 4 and change his seat.

    I have an i30 and after lots of searching I found a very slim line mothers choice booster seat which is 6m-7years and I have easily fitted 2 of them with my strider plus capsule and once bub grows out of that my SnS premier fits easily. This is a pic. Can't remember the exact name of the mothers choice seat but I got them from target. Hopefully this pic works.

    This is my small hatchback with the seats. The hardest part is going up ds1s buckle, and the space between the front and back seats isnt much so the front passenger has to sit more forward. That would happen with any seat though.
