Cars That Fit 3 Car Seats

02 June 2021 Blog

There is a wide choice of family cars on the market, but this can become more limited if you are looking to find something that can comfortably fit three child seats.

UK Law states that children must use a child seat until they are 12 years old, or 135cm tall (whichever comes first). 

For larger families with three children, this could mean utilising car seats for longer. So what are your best options? We share our top picks of cars that can comfortably fit three car seats, including cars with 3 Isofix points, and 7-seater options.

5-Seater Cars With 3 Isofix Points 

Isofix is the universal system for fitting child seats into your car. Most modern cars come fitted with Isofix points that you can easily plug a child seat in to with the knowledge that the seat is fitted correctly.

The Peugeot 3008 has an Isofix point on its from passenger seat, with an additional two on the rear outer seats, meaning you can comfortably drive around three children without having to upsize to a 7-seater. 

It’s also packed with additional features such as lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring and lane keep assist to keep you safe whilst driving.
