I've got 2 dc. We currently have a 7 seater, however having 7 seats is handy but we only use them all occasionally and its costing more to drive a big heavy car for no real reason.
The main thing I use the extra seats for is when the dc friends come over after school. So as long as I can fit 3 car seats in the back I won't need 7 seats.

Does anyone know which cars fit 3 car seats along the back.

The Citroen C4 Picasso does.

I was going to post something like this.

I am due to have DC3 in the next few weeks. That will mean that we have 3 under 3's - so need something that will fit 3 young childrens car seats in the back.

I don't see the need for 7 seats either, but not sure we could fit the 3 car seats in the back of a ' normal' size car.

We've test drive a zafira, and c4 picasso so far.
Both have loads of space, and comfy. But not sure we need to spend all that money on a new car. Or like you said - spend the extra on fuel and road tax etc etc .....

VW touran (the best by far if you can afford one), we have a xsara Picasso (oldish one) and tbh i hate it, it does the job but isnt the best drive and we have had a few problems with it. We have also had a Scenic, i didn't get to drive it as dh had a very nasty accident in it 2 days after we got it, dh said it was very nice to drive and it saved his life grin.

What about a Multipla - 3 seats in the front and 3 in the back and no longer than a normal car, just a bit wider?

Thanks for suggestions.

I had a scenic previously but it was so unreliable I was glad to get rid of it. It's strange because some of the mpvs I've looked at such as Peugeot have 3 seats in the back but the middle seat fits a small person but not a car seat.

S-Max has been ideal for us. We're getting the back two seats removed for even more boot space.
