Hi We are expecting twins in the spring - eek! - and already have a daughter who will be 3yr4mo when they arrive.
We definitely can't fit 3 car seats in our current back seat - does anyone have any advice about cars that can fit 3 child seats - don't think eldest will be ready for a booster seat by the time the babies come.
We've just had out 3rd child..ages are 3yrs 8 months, 15 months & now 3 wks... We now have a ford a max...mothercare fitted all our car seats & said it was the best fit/configuration they'd seen. Is nice to drive too..parking sensors help but doesn't actually feel like you're driving a bigger car as such.
C4grand picasso is brilliant. Plenty of space in the second row. 2 more seats in the third row on case of play dates, and even with a double buggy in the boot, room for all the other junk you will need!
You need a large people carrier, like the ones that were mentioned - ford s max or Galaxy, Citroen c4 grand Picasso, Renault grand scenic; also seat Alhambra and vw sharan. Don't go for a smaller MPV which hasn't got three separate seats (e.g. Vw Touran, ford c max). Also, some (not all) have three lots of Isofix hooks, in case you want isofix seats. Make sure to check out the boot, as you'll need to store a twin buggy as well as everything else. Finally, depending on what size your current car is and how good a driver you are , it's worth investing in parking sensors front/rear and camera(s). I am terrible at judging spaces or the size of my car, and the rear camera has saved me quite a lot of times!
Actually, the touran does have 3 separate seats, but you'd struggle to get 3 car seats across on a regular basis. Suggest the sharan or the seat alhambra which is basically the same car with a less posh badge
