Nissan pulsar N14 1994 5 door

Could 2 booster seats (the tall winged kind) and a babyseat fit in the back?

I am going to sell my beloved Nissan Maxima to save money on running costs as driving all over to uni, school, kindy, childcare, physio and swiming this year is going to add up and I think it would be better to downgrade for awhile.

So looking at finding a cheaper small car, I want to know if I had too could 3 seats fit in it? Probably not but ah well.

Do you know of any smallish cheap to cars that can?

good luck

Im wondering if there are any cars that can fit 3 that are cheapish to buy and run, just seems like pain to get a bigger car, just in case.

I could just get small one anyway and swap again later if I need to in a year or so.

apparently you can get slim car seats but only online, they aren't mass stocked in baby stores yet, I have to do a bit more research 1st but apparently it is possible, but not in a rav4 lol

We have a Holden Barina sedan, with 3 seats.  

4 year old sits in middle in a S&S Hi-Liner SG

baby RF in S&S Meridian

2.5 year old in Mothers Choice Emperor.

We are planning on getting a new car next year, so are hoping that the Meridian will still be fine FF until then once we turn it.

It is theoretically possible that I might get them in my corolla if I bought slim ones, there is no way on earth that three seats would have fitted in my pulsar.

Sorry OP I think its very unlikely. We have a hyundai getz and we have the smallest available car seats and 2 of those seats take up almost all the back seat with about 10cm in between. Ive also heard people with 4wds say they couldnt fit 3 across the back in any way  sad.gif

No I don't like your chances. A baby seat and two boosters JUST fit in a commodore. I have a Mazda now and I can only get two boosters in- no one can even sit in the middle it's that tight a squeeze!
