Car for three car seats

Hi. Our car is about to expire and we need to buy a new one with room for three car seats in the back and plenty of boot space. We have a 4-year-old on a booster seat with a back, a 1-year-old and a baby arriving in May. We don't want one of those massive people carriers as the car will be my husband's commuting car too. We've tried a Picasso and a Scenic, which my husband thinks are too small, so we're thinking of some kind of estate car. Does anyone have one which fits three car-seated kids in the back and has three proper seatbelts, plus a big boot. Does such a car exist? Any advise on what/what not to go for would be much appreciated.

You can fit a baby seat, a seat for under 4s and a high backed booster in the back of a Renault Laguna and the boot space is big enough. The Laguna has 3 3-point seat belts in the back.

We have a volvo - boring I know - but it fits three car seats across the back. Also has a rear facing row in the boor which is useful if having school friends home for tea!

MIL has the new nissan almera (i think thats the one), massive in the back and a fair bit of boot space. and the middle seat belt is a proper one.
