    Default 3 Car Seats in a Hyundai i30

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me as I really don't want to have to buy another car!
    Baby number 3 is due next year and my other children will be 5 and a half, and 3 and a half, so they will all need to be in car seats.
    I have a Hyundai i30 and have heard it is possible to fit 3 car seats across the back but can anyone please tell me which seats / brands will fit as I'm struggling with this at the moment??
    I will need a baby seat for a newborn and 2 x car / booster seats for my other children, both of whom are happy for the seats to have a harness, which I'm hoping will make it easier with doing / undoing the belts.
    Any help would be really appreciated!! Thank you!

    I've done it a fair few times. It makes for a tight fit though. I have a fairly narrow baby love booster seat, a wide-ish safe'n'sound car seat/booster seat and I'm not sure what kind of seat my friends was but we managed to fit all 3 in a fair few times.
    If you go to a baby shop they generally let you place the seats in your car to see how they fit, so that may be an option?

    There's the Hera and Euro in the 0-4 convertible range.
    Goliath is their convertible booster.
    They also above a 6m-4y seat which is the Complete Air.

    But they all have fairly low markers and for the price of their seats, you can get much better for less imo!

    I knew someone who had 3 in an i30. Not sure which seats but she also had a seat buckle extender so that it was easier to do up belts. Baby stores would be able to help out with an extender.
