    Default Hyundai IX35 or I30 - 3 car seats across

    After having a head on collision with a drug affected driver last week, I am now after a new (second hand) car. (I cant drive atm due to injuries but need new car seats and car)

    I am pregnant so will have a newborn, 4.5 yo and 6yo
    Ideally a 5 point harness for the big kids, but will consider a booster for both.

    Do you have an I30 or IX35 - can you fit 3 across
    what seats do you have
    is it a pain to get the seats in and belts on

    (my last car was an I30 - it literally saved my life and my babies! I'd like to stick to the hyundai)

    Both would be a squeeze with compact seats but might be ok.

    Thank you. I'm sure this has been asked 100 times and its probably more a question of what you're prepared to put up with. I lke the price, fuel efficiency, safety features and look of these cars. I don't want an old car or a huge car. But I do have #3 on the way and need to be realistic

    I've got an i30 but only one child seat, I can't say I've tried to put 3 in but I imagine it would be a tough squeeze.
    I image an i35 would have a bit more room.
    That being said I did fit two grown ups in the back seat last week next to the baby seat so maybe it's possible.

    I've had 3 seats in my car (i30) a fair few times. It's definitely a tight fit. If you have narrowish car seats and were using 5 point harnesses, it wouldn't be too bad.
    It becomes a massive pain in the butt when you have to reach down and under the seats to undo the lapsash seat belts when using booster seats though.

    Check this site out http://www.mynrma.com.au/motoring/re...de/hyundai.htm it has fitting guide for both but the ix35 seems the best for your situation. Personally I would go the ix35 for the extra height. So much better getting kids strapped in when your not bent over.

    I have the iX35 😉! LOVE IT! We have the Diesel so fuel consumption is really good. I only have 2 (for now, working on DH for #3 😁) & their car seats are big so if I go for #3 I'll have to change those. I have a Strider 4 pram & it fits comfortably in the boot + space for groceries. I've told DH that I love driving my car as it's so comfortable & easy. If we upgrade, I'll happily choose a Hyundai 😁!

    I have the IX35 and absolutely love it. I bought it with the clear intention that I knew I wanted to start a family however unfortuantely I don't have kids yet but can tell you it is a great car. I love the added height it has over the i30 and it is bigger, it has more boot space ect than the i30. They do have the 5 star safety feature however I have had hyundai disable a few of the features on mine as they annoyed me but I can always get them enabled again. I have had my car since 2010 and will def trade and get another ix35 when we are due for a new car. If i were you with having the three kids I would get the ix35.
