Has anyone managed to get 3 car seats across the back of an Audi A4 or similar car and if so what car seats are you using?
Currently we have dd1 nearly 5yr in a maxway erf seat and dd2 2yr in a maxfit erf car.
Our local rear facing experts could not help and suggested a new car. Do we need a new car? Happy to put dd1 in a hbb but would ideally prefer to keep dd2 rear facing. Dc3 due in December.
During week would be happy to have 1 child in front but at weekends dh will need to fit in car too.

No chance, I'm afraid. The good thing about the avant is that it is quite narrow, but it's a bugger for car seats.

Thanks DS. Was hoping for some miracle combination of seats lol. New car shopping it is!

The slimmest ERF seat I've heard of is (I think) the Britax Two-Way Elite, but I have no idea whether that would fit. Certianly there's no way we'd get two ERF seats and an infant carrier in the back of our Nissan Note. Good luck finding a new car :)

Have the twe in dh car so must play about with it at weekend in mine and see if it allows more room.

I had 3 in a BMW 3 seriese coupe.
2 britax freeways (fairly narrow) and a HBB.
