So we just bought a Nissan X-Trail with the vision of having number 3 shortly. I have googled which carseats fit best in the back, its saying that a SNS Meridian (which C is now in) a S n S hi liner (which we are going to get for A) and a SNS capsule all work nicely accross the back. Brilliant. However my concern turns to when the 3rd one is forward facing and then what seats will fit best. Obviously the baby will go into the meridian and C will be moved, but im unsure what will fit with the meridian and the hi liner, she will only be a few months over 3 when bubs is due to turn (all going well in getting pregnant) so ill need something like a convertible booster, have heard of the hi pod being a skinnier seat but unsure. Those with 3, what carseats are you using?

in a kia sorrento (it didnt have a lot of backseat space) we had a compaq deluxe, maxi-rider and a ezy up booster seat.
In our current car - Toyota Prado we have 2 maxi riders and compaq deluxe (forward Facing)
My best suggestion is take your car got to baby store and try a few different seats that you like to see how they fit. We got the ezy-up as it was one of the narrowest on the market - i hated it as it didnt have an anti-submarine clip and also putting the seat belt on was a nightmare as it was hard getting my hand between the seats. Atm Milly is still in the 5 point harness in the maxi-rider but when im ready im going to buy a seat belt extension which brings the seat belt clip in bit up to the booster seat height which will make it easier to do the seat belt.

I have a Mazda 6 hatch with three seats in it. Liam and Nick are in Infa Vario Max boosters, which I was told are the narrowest you van get. Alexandra is in a hire capsule, a Babylove SnapNGo and will go rear facing in one of the boys old seats (a Britax Premier) when the capsule goes back. It's a bit of a jigsaw and hard to get my hand between the seats but we have to just go with it. I don't know though if the Premier will fit in forward facing but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. I second trying a few different ones to see what fits. Also measure the width of your back seat and use the manufacturers websites with their measurements to see what you come up with.

The infa varios are the ones i was originally lookig at Claire, interesting to know as i may end up getting one of these for Aidan instead of the hi liner, the hands down the seats i have heard is a common problem

We have three forward facing in the back of mums Toyota corolla at the moment. The twins are in compaq's and Miss Z is in a Cargo something from Big W, which is slim line and made by britax and has an excellent safety rating.

We've got a Tarago and normally have 2 seats in each row but we can fit a 3rd seat in the second row. The twins are in BabyLove Preludes which is the same shell as the BabyLove EzySwitch which rates highly and was the narrowest seat to read face to 12kgs when we were buying. The 3rd seat we've put next to them is an Infa Vario booster, can't remember the name but it was top rating.

In my ford falcon I have 1 Maxi Rider AHR, 1 SnS Galaxay and a the capsule, they all fit really well. Soon we'll have 2 maxi riders and the galaxy. All 3 fit very snuggly in our Suzuki Grande Vitara as well
