Instead of across the boot space?
I was sold on a VW Golf... but that dog&lemon guide says to avoid!
5 star ancap
I only have one baby (no prospect of another any-time soon unless nature chooses otherwise) so only needs to fit 1 car seat.
I currently have a Getz that I love!! But it's just a bit too small I have only ever driven small cars so want to stay that way (if it's anything bigger I might need a driving lesson I kid you not )
So tell me about your car!
I should add:
DP is a fussy bugger! NO mitsubishis, NO jeeps, NO chery or any of that super cheap crap.

Small Cars that have anchor points behind seats?

My Dh has a golf and seriously, he loves it. No trouble with it at all and runs basically on air!
The anchor points are on the back of the seats.

DH has a ford fiesta.
Anchors on the back of the seats.

I just bought a new car 5 weeks ago and I LOVE it. It's a Mazda 3 hatch.
Great little car with heaps of power and it's not really as small as it looks from the outside. I don't need it for car seats but I noticed it has the anchor points for the two side seats on the back of the seat. I think the middle one is through the boot though.

Dh works in a dealership and always says to avoid the new vw's!
We just hired a corolla hatchback while on holiday and it was great!
Such a nice car to drive and so much more space then we expected!

I have a ford focus XR5 turbo and love it. anchor points at the back and still heaps of space in the front with the baby seat in the back : )

Mine is a 2l turbo diesel comfortline, it came with cruise control and the previous owners installed an iPod dock and reversing camera. I get at least 700 km from a tank of mostly city driving
The carseat (SnS meridian ahr) fits in the middle allowing the front seats to extend back most of the way, handy as I am tall! This works well for us as I have two older children who are separated on either side, it might not be as roomy with more than one carseat though.
The boot is huge for a hatch and it has three anchor points located on the back of the seat so there isn't any tether strap intruding onto the boot
The car is an absolute pleasure to drive
Whoops, I meant to add that I would recommend this car to anyone and we've never had any issues with unreliability!!
