    Default Do you have 3 car seats in your back seat?

    We have just managed to squeeze a rear facing seat, a fwd facing seat and a booster across the backseat of our BMW X5.

    We are looking at buying a new car soon.

    If you have 3 car seats across the back seat, what type of car do you have?

    We have Ford BA Fairmont and 3 carseats across the back. It's a tight squeeze, but manageable. One of them is a booster seat and 2 forward facing carseats.

    2 forward facing and one rear facing across the middle row of a Hyundai iMax. It's not a pretty car but has heaps of room!

    1 x infasecure neon rear facing
    1x infasecure Evolve (huge!)
    1x britax maxi rider

    In a Volvo XC60. Tight squeeze but I made it work. Not sure if I can turn the neon forward facing!!

    The Ford territory has brilliant back seat room. When I moved the car seats to my mums car it was so easy to install. I would like to buy a territory but I want the safety features that come with the Volvo.

    I do, in a VW Golf- a very tight squeeze, had to buy new seats to fit. I've got a maxi Cosi capsule (soon to become a SNS compact rear facing), a SNS maxi rider and a SNS booster (can't remember what it is called)

    Apparently the golf and jetta backseats are exactly the same, just one is a hatch and the other a sedan, it was a bit like a jigsaw puzzle in my car, but luckily I already had slim seats as we used to have and 2 door barina hatch lol

    We do. We have a Ford XR6. Upgrading soonish to something else, maybe a territory or something smaller. Although it'll be 2 seats soon as DS1 is almost out of his

    My mum has a barina and fits 3 seats across the back.
