Growing families present all sorts of challenges when choosing your next car. One of them is finding a car that can fit three child seats across the back seat so that you can fit all of your offspring safely.
The safest way to attach a child seat in a car is with Isofix mounts. These are standardised attachment points built into a regular car seat, and there are lots of car seats designed to fit them. Isofix is a more convenient method than using a seat belt to attach a car seat, and it keeps the seat firmly secured so that it doesn’t move if you have to brake suddenly or, worse still, are in a collision.
The issue is that although most cars have Isofix mounts on their outer back seats, only some also have one in the middle. And not many cars are wide enough to fit three child seats in the back at all. Some satisfy on both counts, however, making them perfect for larger families. Here’s our pick of the best.
