We are needing a new car as baby number 3 is arriving soon (ish ).
We ideally need 3 full seat spaces in the back. Looking at cheap and doesn't necessarily need to last long term so older cars. Any ideas ?

Forgot to say thank you in advance !

Off top of my head:
Ford cmax / bmax (cabt remember which)
Seat alambra
Grand scenic (not sure about non-grand scenic)
Vw touran
Vw sharran
Most 7 seaters (but not all have 3 seats in back) . My best tip ... take cars seats while shopping and put them into the cars you are considering. Also test headrests of car seats in various positions.

Thank you putting all of those into my auto trader search now! Vauxhall zafira 7 seater that I used to have was quite narrow and not enough in the middle bit for 3 but good to know most are. I'd like them all in the back ideally (or space for me plus two car seats then oldest child in front with airbag off is a possibility )

Peugeot 5008 - has a huge boot - brilliant for double buggies and shopping. Also has 2 fold down seats in the boot so can be a 7 seater if required.

Renault scenic is same set up as the grand scenic and has 3 full size seats in the back.

Ford Smax and Galaxy are both very roomy inside with 3 full seats.

We have a Citroen Picasso. 3 car seats can fit in the back.
I am pregnant with number 4 so we will have to look for another car soon...

Thanks everyone that's really helpful. More roomy cars around than I realised!
NotBurpeesAgain, congratulations and good luck! So 7 seater for you next I'm guessing !

3 children and we have a Ford Grande C Max. Its 7 seats but can be configured differently. I wouldn t really want adults in the 2 seats at the back as the leg room is very limited. We quite like it and it's not too huge. The automatic boot and the sliding doors are a plus.

If you don’t want to change car you could look at this. Not sure about the specifics, I haven’t got one, just another option.

I have three seats in the back of an Astra!! Two forward facing child seats by each window and a highback booster in the middle.

3 kids in back of C4 granbd picasso; 2 x booster plus a high back.

Mortigua Mon 20-Nov-17 19:52:20

Thank you. Unfortunately we do need to change cars.
We need space for comfortable a baby seat, a high backed booster plus an adult so three full sized ones will be essential. I know what you mean about the back seats littlered, it never really worked for us with the zafira and also we will need the whole boot for a buggy.

Mortigua Mon 20-Nov-17 19:53:03

Brightredpencil not littlered!

Jenijena Mon 20-Nov-17 19:54:26

I like my Peugeot 5008. Not the zippiest of cars but reasonably priced second hand

Seat Alhambra is a great size in the middle row, and 3 isofix positions.
When I looked at the multimac car seats they had a really bad safety rating.

Ford Expedition here, love it!

Easily fitted three in the back of a ford cmax. One baby, one toddler, one high backed booster. We had to buy new toddler seat that had a smallish base but sat quite high on the middle seat, so you could reach to do up the seatbelts of the seats either side. Our high back booster didn't have side wings at hip level which also helped.

Thanks all. Not being zippy is no issue!
As long as it has 3 full sized seats I'm happy. Should have said the adult may need to sit in the middle so definitely needs to be a proper sized one if that makes sense.
