3 Car Seats Across One Row
I’ve had quite a few people ask how we fit 3 car seats (rear facing) into our new 2012 Kia Sportage EX which only has one back row of seats. As many of you already know, it’s all about the seats you use. But, the majority of available “slim seats” are extremely expensive. It’s especially expensive when you need to buy 3 at a time like we have to!
So, I did a bunch of research trying to find seats that were no more than $100 each and would fit comfortably in the new car. After searching I came up with the Safety 1st Guide 65 Convertible Car Seats. They’re around $100 each, look great, are safe/comfortable, and fit perfectly in the car without the need to slam the doors shut. Take a look at the pictures below to see the car and how the seats fit inside of it.
If you’re in the market for new seats I’d highly suggest checking out the Safety 1st Guide 65 Convertible Car Seats. Especially if you’re trying to fit 3 car seats in one row. They should fit in just about any standard sized sedan or cross-over SUV since they’re able to fit in our Kia’s back seat.
P.S. If you’re a bit anal like me when it comes to taking care of your car, also check out the Diono Super Mat. It’s an inexpensive car seat protector which will help stop “seat dents and wrinkles” from occurring while you have the car seats installed. So far these mats seem to work well and have done a decent job of protecting our leather seats.
