We have a three year old, a 15 month old, and another on the way. We need to buy a car that will fit three car seats. We are opposed to mini-vans and are interested in safety and fuel efficiency. Do you know which cars would accommodate three seats, while allowing tall parents to sit comfortably up front? Our current car, an 07 Outback does NOT do this, nor has it been a good car for two car seats.
I suggest you go test drive a Honda Element. They do look weird, but once you are in the drivers seat cruising down the road, you forget you are driving a big box. Plus, as a bonus the seats, floors and walls are made of material that you can literally hose down to clean them out. The seats also fold down out of the way when you need to use it at transport large objects or lots of "stuff."
All My Best,
