    Smile 3 across in Scion XB

    Want to carpool but need to fit Three four year olds in seats in my 2008 Scion XB, any ideas? I have seen some somewhat helpful threads but can't seem to find one that has specifically 3 models.

    I have a lot of carseats and have not had the patience to try all three across and honestly they don't seem like any combo would fit. They are all so wide!

    I have Britax Marathon, Britax Boulevard, Cosco Scenara and an Eddie Bauer - I don't have the model name in front of me but it is like a booster with a 5 point harness

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    Hi there! The seats you have are almost all very wide.

    You'll likely have more luck trying with at least a couple narrower seats, like the Harmony Defender, Diono Radians, and maybe you'll even need something narrower like a Ride Sagger Travel Vest...

    Often the Britax convertibles can ”puzzle” over two lower profile seats outboard (like those Radians or Defenders.)

    How tall are their seated shoulder heights, and what do they weigh? Do you have a budget?
