    If you have 3 car seats in the middle row how does the older one get into the 3rd row? And is there no fixing points in the back so he would need a booster that just has the seatbelt?

    Nissan patrol. Quite easily fits a baby seat, three booster seats and two teenagers in the back with plenty of leg room. 9 seater.

    Depending on how the seats fold, I would suggest baby seat in middle row on one side and booster in the middle. Get anchor points fitted in the back. Two seats in the back.

    Not all of the suvs can have anchor points added. We brought a captiva when we only had 2 kids so never looked into. We have since found out the only way we can add anchors for the back is a big bar across the back. I know with a ford territory you can get anchor points in the back though.

    I've got a Ford Territory 7 seater and it's a beautiful car (I've got the Titanium). You can get anchors put in the 3rd row. However I only use the 3rd row occasionally as DP mostly drives his boys in his car. I'm really glad we've got a 7 seater but if I had to drive all the kids around all the time the boot space wouldn't be enough in the Territory. It fits all the school bags easily, but not the cricket bags so we really just use it for weekend outings. If we took it camping we would tow all the gear in a trailer.

    Default Best car for 4 kids in car seats??

    If you're after bootspace and easy access to the 3rd row then I would go a Kia Carnival. I've had 2 Mazda CX9's and now drive a Nissan Patrol. As much as all the cars are great to drive, it can be a pain in the butt to access the back rows sometimes. In my patrol, the passenger side seat and middle seat (in middle row) flip together to get in the 3rd row so you couldn't have an anchored seat in either spot otherwise you need to use the driver side (road side) to access the back row.
    I love my patrol but I'm regretting buying it. Within the next few months I'm going to get the new Kia Carnival, bit more practical for me I think.
