    Territory has heaps of room. Sooo easy to fit 3 in.

    I have a Volvo XC60. It does fit 3, you just have to break your hand to do it. I normally make seat belt fully extended and pull car seat forward to do it up then tighten it.

    My sister has a Kia S- something. That also first 3.

    Try different orders, it can be a bit like Tetris.

    I've had 3 seats across a Jeep Patriot, Mazda CX-9, Holden Commodore, and my Nissan patrol but that car was huge.
    If you didn't want a new car and just want to change seats, take your car into a place like baby bunting, they'll help you measure them up. I did that when I got my CX9, I ended getting 2 x maxi cosi complete air and the maxi cosi capsule and once DD4 grew out of that I got the rear facing maxi cosi Hera. I know some of the new britax car seats are a lot narrower now making it easy to fit 3 car seats in.

    Audi Q7 easily fits 3 plus is a 7 seater so you can fit 5 if needed!

    I have a Subaru Outback and I got 2 booster and a capsule. It's tight and I need buckle extenders but we make it work.

    Default Suv & 3 x carseats....help

    Yep ours is diesel, It costs me about $75ish to fill it up and lasts me approx 900km - I love mine, I've easily fit 3 kids all in boosters and 4 adults in mine easily ( it has 5 anchor points in both back rows)

    Maybe look at the Range Rover as well, the back is really spacious. We also have an x5 and I think the rear seat is the worst design ever.
