Im struggling, our car has ISOFIX but every ISOFIX seat I look at is unsuitable because the car has storage foot wells. Does anyone here have a Touran and if so what car seat do you have?

Just open the storage in the footwell and put the isofix leg to the bottom of it. All the maxi cosi ones we have all reach and are safe.

Can you not just not use the isofix?

What size are you looking for?
Britax two way elite does not have a footprop

Or else for many cars you can either get fillers for the boxes from your dealer, or some of the foot props go all the way to the bottom of the box.

Maybe give in car safety centre in Milton Keynes a call?

Oh, meant to say. There is a filler available for the footwell storage, your VW garage should be able to source one for you (or give you the part number so you can buy it online). You shouldn't need it though, depending on which seat you get (maxi cosi easyfix, family fix, priorifix all fit fine)

I thought about doing that with the foot wells but it just says on the maxi cosi site that the family fix is unsuitable for Tourans with storage

Im looking for a car seat from birth we actually purchased the familyfix bases and since checking online it said not suitable which is why im at a loss. Maxi Cosi will fit our pram so that's what I was hoping to get.

Have not heard of the Safety Centre but will give them a call thank you.

Can you link the bit on the maxi cosi bit please? Am a bit annoyed, as carefully checked compatibility on their site when I bought it, bit worried it's now considered unsafe!

I found this

Rear floor storage support, £15. Part number 000019720
