    Default 3 seats in Toyota Prado

    DH and I are looking to upgrade our car due to new baby due in March, we have 2 DD's that will be aged 2 and 4 when baby arrives, we've looked at a couple of SUV's that I struggle to believe would fit 3 seats, next up is a Prado we would be getting the 7 seat model but I don't want our eldest in a seat without a tether just yet so they would all have to fit in the middle row.

    First question has anyone got one and can it fit 3 seats across the middle row?
    Second question what seats fit??

    TIA

    Default 3 seats in Toyota Prado

    My SIL has an older Prado and fits 3 seats.
    I had a CX9 which fit 2x maxi cosi airs and 1 x maxi cosi capsule. Once bub moved out of her capsule I used a maxi cosi Hera. Then once DD2 moved into a booster I used;
    Safe n sound hi liner
    Maxi cosi air
    Maxi cosi Hera.
    I have found the maxi cosi seats to be a lot narrower (never had a problem with the seats either like what was all over the news)

    Just to add the CX9 and Prado have a similar size middle row.

    I have a Ford Territory and it fits 3 good sized seats perfectly with room between them to get to buckles etc. It is a 7 seater and all 5 rear seats have anchor points. I cannot fit the same seats in my friends Prado. It is tiny inside in comparison to my car. I would recommend taking all of your seats with you and trying them in some cars first.

    Is there a lot of room in the very back of the territory? I've found an MUX is a waste of time, but the Prado seems to have sufficient

    @GlitterFarts can I ask what seats you have, the ones we currently have are quite wide and will need replacing I think, unfortunately we live 3 hours from the closet baby shop so researching seats can be a bit difficult

    We have got the safe n sound maxi AHR, they are big seats and still fit, very comfortable and have a slight recline to them so if they fall asleep, their heads don't roll forward and dangle.

    I have a prado and three seats fit fine. Mine are a safe n sound compact (newest model) with the ahr, a maxi rider ahr easy adjust and a tethered booster (recently changed from a maxi rider ahr as dd had outgrown inbuilt harness) Dd has no trouble doing up her own seatbelt in the booster at 6. I also had a anchor point installed by a professional in the third row left side. The advantage of the prado is the rear seats (third row) are two separate ones so you can use them independently with plenty of room still for pram etc.

    Hi 2butterfly, can I ask where you got your third row anchor point installed? We rang Toyota about getting 2 anchor points installed in our 3rd row and they told us yep go to the local AutoOne. So we did and got them installed. But everything I am reading now says they shouldn't be put on the third row as they are not safe in an accident and am freaking out!!
