Hi there llightfoot

Sorry you haven't received any responses so far. Sounds like you've got a lot on your plate but if you could just let us know how much money you have to spend on your car and, perhaps, whether you have a preference for new vs used, then I expect the answers will start flowing.

Ford fiesta and buy a Multimac seat.
Had three under four on my Multimac and loved it x

Will you need to fit another adult into it?

I had a renault cleo (with back doors) and I managed ok with it, 3 small children, but we have another car - big estate. Boot space pretty good for a small car, big pushchair and shopping squished in (once rear parcel shelf removed).

You are going to need to put 3 car seats in your car for quite a while. So it seems like a bigger car would make life easier. Maybe Astra/Focus sized? Definitely one with rear doors, will make life so much easier.
If it's just going to do mainly short journeys a small engine will keep petrol costs down.

Have you seen anything you like the look of?
