    XC60, best car seats, can I fit three across?

    Hi, I have a Volvo XC60.

    I have 2.5yo in a Britax Boulevard. I have a 4 month old (16lbs) in a Peg Perego Infant Carrier. I am looking to buy a convertible car seat to use in the next few months for the 4 month old.

    My question is, I am planning for a 3rd baby. What is the best combination of seats to fit 3 across in the XC60. I have tried Britax, Peg, Britax, but it is tight and I could only do the latch on one side or else they all wouldn't fit.

    I am trying to plan ahead and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    i have an XC70. not sure how much bigger or smaller my back seat is. i have a frontier with seat behind the passenger and a radian center. i have plenty of room behind the driver for our britax decathalon and our recaro vivo booster. our bucket was a graco but i never tried it with 3 across. i would definitely get a radian to help with your 3 across.

    LATCH is no safer then seatbelt. Seatbelt will usually give you a few to several more inches to install seats. I would recommend installing all with seatbelt.

    Thanks for the info. I was definitely going to look into the Radian. Now which one??!!

    I always wondered about if the latch was safer or not. Everyone puts so much focus on it, but what about all the older cars without latch? Thanks for the info about the latch.

    I just found this website. Thanks for the recs!
