Vw sharan. Has 7 proper individual seats. Of course it has other incarnations made by other manufacturers.
As for car seats i can't help there. Mine were babies a long time ago

Yes, as above the Sharan, Seat Alhambra etc have all back seats with isofix

Maxi cosi are a good bet on car seats as they fit on lots of prams.... although with quads you've hit an extremely limited choice of prams!! Congratulations x

Does it have to be a 4x4?

Imo a car is the least of your worries!!
Congratulations though!

The SEAT Alhambra. Made by the same people in the same factory.

Love my Alhambra! It's got 5 isofix points so made to take loads of car seats and it's got sliding doors which are a godsend with 2 so I can only imagine they'd be a lifesaver with 4 to get out.

For infant car seats I'd look at the big brands like Maxi Cosi, Britax, Joie. We had a Be Safe I I go and a joie i-Gemm and I prefer the joie. Isofix bases would be a nice to have with 4 car seats to secure if you can stretch to it. I presume quads are likely to be small? In which case there's one type of maxi Cosi that isn't good for small babies.

Don't worry about the next stage seat yet. A good infant seat should last you until about 18months. Then something like the Joie Stages would be a good option for rear facing.

Massive good luck!!!

Wow, congratulations!
If you’re on FB there is an excellent group called Car Seat Advice UK. In the files they have a saved post about the best family cars to fit lots of car seats in.
Good luck!

Honda FRV is worth a look smile

FRV if you want a smaller car, or a Volvo XC90
If you don’t mind a people carrier the seat Alhambra/ vw sharan is good
