I often hear from parents who are searching for the automotive holy grail: a car that’s not a minivan and can fit three child-safety seats across the backseat. It’s a short list.
In the more than two years that Cars.com editors have been installing car seats into test vehicles, they’ve come across only a handful of cars that can hold three car seats across a backseat.
The latest car to make the list is the 2013 Chevrolet Impala, a full-size sedan. To be considered a fit, there must be enough room between the booster seat and infant-safety seat for a child’s hand to reach the seat belt buckle.
As they come across more cars that fit three child-safety seats, they will add to this list.
For now, here are the cars from their list that can fit three car seats in the second row:
2013 Chevrolet Impala
2012 GMC Yukon XL
2013 Toyota Land Cruiser
2012 Honda Pilot
2012 Land Rover LR4
2012 Mercedes-Benz M-Class
2011 Chrysler 300 and 300C
2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2011 Land Rover LR4
2011 Nissan Murano
