    3 across in Hyundai St Fe

    Hi!
    I have a 6.5 year old (45 lbs, 48 inches), a 4.5 year old (40 lbs and 40 inches) and one on the way. I'm trying to figure out what car seats I can fit 3 across in our 2007 Santa Fe.
    I have 3 high back boosters right now (Evenflo Big Kid Amp, Britax Pioneer, and Graco Nautilus 3-in-1), I also have 2 backless boosters (both Harmony Transit Deluxe), 1 convertible (Britax Boulevard) and I'd like to use an infant carrier (and hopefully fit it on the passenger or driver side). I currently have a graco snugride 22 that I'd love to use, but I'm willing to replace any of the car seats above in order to get a combo that fits!
    Anybody have any recommendations or experience with this?
    Thanks!!

    How does your 6 year old do in a backless booster? I assume you want the 4 year old harnessed still?

    I'd prefer my 6 year old in a high back booster (or even a 5 point booster...which she still uses in our van), but I'm not willing to buy a new car just for that reason : ) She'll be almost 7 when the baby comes. The 4 year old needs a high back booster at the very least, although I would prefer her in a 5 point harness.

    Ok. You might look at the Graco Tranzitions or Harmony Defender, 2 very narrow combination seats. You may need a narrower rear facing seat too. Either a rear facing only like the Chicco Keyfit, or a convertible that fits from birth like a Combi Coccoro or Scenera NEXT.
