DH is getting a new company car and fancies the look of the Skoda Octavia Estate.

We have a Britax Evolva and a Britax First Class and DS1 is still using a booster seat. Britax fit finder says they are OK in the car, but as is the way don't say how much room there is.

Does anyone know how easily we will be able to fit all three seats in the back?

We have an Octavia estate (55 plate no idea if they have changed the shape of the car since then) which we love except for the fact that we can't get three seats across the back - although we only have 2 dc it is surprising the number of times you need that extra seat for transporting friends- it has become such a hassle for us we are changing the car.

We have a Britax evolva 2-3 (so a bit smaller than the evolva 1-2-3) and the other is a Maxi-cosi Priori XP which is one of those big ones they go in till about 3 years. Unless it was a teeny booster seat I don't think you could fit it in I am afraid but I could be wrong - with 2 muckle chuckle car seats it would be a squash for your DS1 in the middle!

We have an 07 plate Octavia (company car too) and although we've never had more than 2 seats in the back, I would say 3 would be very, very tight

we don't have an octavia, we have the superb (which is bigger) and we can't fit 3 childrens seats in the back - I love the car but there isn't even room for another person to squeeze inbetween the 2 that we have.

thanks for that :0)

He has been given a hire car until his company car is ready and it's also an Octavia, so we can try our seats out. Ds1's booster is quite a slim one, so fingers crossed they will all be able to squeeze in.
