Can anyone help - we are expecting dc3 and need a new car that will fit 3 big car seats across the back. We will have dc1 in a Britax high back booster (age 4), dc2 in a Britax dualfix that swivels round (massive) (age 2) and dc3 in a maxi cosy. In either the Picasso or s max can I fit these three seats across the middle row? Or do you need one on the back row? And is one car more spacious than the other? I can't find a stat anywhere that says how big the actual seats are in both cars. Thank you

We have a citroen and have had an infant seat, erf seat and one of those bigger cybex ones for a 3 yr old in the back and another infant seat in the front. It's a good fit.

However we are getting rid of ours as it's clearly got an electrical fault. Randomly went into limp mode the other day. If we had an endless pot of money I would buy a new one but don't trust them now.

We are looking for an s max or Galaxy.

I'd recommend a galaxy over an s max as the s max roof slopes down at the back so when your children are older there might not be so much space for them.

Most dealers will be more than happy for you to and try out the combination. We even borrowed one car for half a day to drive it to a shop that had the three car seats we wanted to try them out. Most car dimensions are online and then the car seats are on too. We have 18cm gap in total across the three.
