    two car seats in second row while still have easy access to third row?

    I am expecting my twins early next year so I need an SUV which can accommodate two car seats in second row and still have easy access to third row. With infant car seats it is not difficulty for many cars especially those that have captain seats in second row. But later when I need rear facing convertible car seats I cannot find a lot of options.

    Any recommendation? Thanks!

    I don't know your budget, but when I was trying to RF two convertibles the roomiest bench seat SUVs were the Acura MDX and the Mercedes Gl450. Those allowed outboard and center placement of a Foonf and a Keyfit - both 17" carseats.

    I really liked the Enclave/traverse/acadia, but to fit my double stroller I had to put the third row down - which requires the 2nd row to be moved up - and then no legroom for the driver or passenger with RF seats.

    If rear-facing infant seats fit, convertibles will fit too, if you buy the right seats.

    I don't think she means "fit", I think she means how in the world would anyone get past them to the third row. To answer that question though, typically people will put 1 RF in the way back and load through the hatch or climb in themselves and buckle. Or if the back bench seat has a 60/40 split they will fold down the small part and load the third row passengers through the hatch, in order to keep the RFers in the second row
