Volvo XC90 car seats(5 Posts)
Hello, we are thinking of getting a Volvo XC90. We have a 3y old and 1.5y old twins. Does anyone know if I can fit 3 car seats at the back? I currently have one car seat for my 3y old and would need to purchase 2 more for the twins. I really like the car seat or my son, it's a recaro that is v comfortable for sleeping as well.
I was wondering what were your experiences and if you had any recommendations. I am open to any suggestions
I was thinking of putting the 3 kids in the 2nd row and was wondering how to access the back row if needed. Best wishes and thank you!!

The Facebook group mentioned is the best place for car seat advice online.
I'm pretty sure you can get 3 car seats across the XC90. I don't have the same car but In our 7 seater, you have to take one car seat out to fold the seat in order for somebody to get into one of the third row seats.
As for car seats, obviously rear facing is by far the safest option. Up to at least 4 years is recommended. If your twins aren't likely to weigh more than 18kg by age 4 (track their weight in the red books), the Joie Stages is a good choice. Otherwise look at 25kg seats like the axkid Minikid or the Britax Two Way Elite.
Yes - it's a great car, safest in the world.
Yes, three car seats fit in the back and you can also purchase Volvo car seats, specifically designed for their cars.
If you want more advice and want to possibly purchase a car, contact my husband Chris Hill at Snows Volvo Southampton on 02380 788788 option 4.
