Hi there, we're having no3 around Christmas, and thinking about a new car. We're not that keen on an MPV, but does anyone have an estate car that fits 3 child seats in the back?

My oldest will be 6, so we'd have one booster seat (seat rather than cushion) and 2 child seats.

The Peguot does i think but everyone slates them, maybe a volvo or mercedes ?

Some seats are wider than others, so if peole say what car fits three it would be helpful to know what seats they use too.

I have a Freelander with two Britax Freeways and an Elite, but have used a Graco first stage with the Freeways too. ( Not an estate I know, just giving an example. )

I am also expecting no3 at the end of July when the oldest will be 4.2 and the younger one 2.4. DH recently fitted the baby seat and the 2 toddler seats across the back of our VW Passat (new model). I am assuming a booster, toddler seat and baby seat will also fit so we're not bothering to get a new car now.

we've just bought an a class, with 2 intergrated car seats and even without those 3 car seat would be possible.

A lot do. I dont drive so have fitted 3 into quite a few friends cars including small ones like 206s
We have a mazda estate and theres plenty of room in there

Sadly not for our fourth child though grin

Ford Mondeo - have been able to fit several different combinations of baby seats in there. Some are easier to fit in different positions though (if that makes sense), i.e. seats A,B,C is ok, but B,C,A is more squashed.

Wriggle If you're still reading this one.... will Mondeo cope with infant, and toddler and 4 year old?
