Question 2010 Nissan Rogue - three across, convertible and infant seat


New member
Hello! I am expecting #3 in October and I am trying to figure out if my 2010 Nissan Rogue will work for us, or if I need to really start looking at a bigger vehicle. I know, I am running out of time!

My older two are both currently using Graco Nautilus, forward facing, with the 5-point harness. They are really wide seats and leave very little room in between, so I know we would need different convertible seats for this to work.

About my kids:
5 years old (almost 6) and 49 lbs
4 years old and 42 lbs

I don't feel comfortable switching to boosters yet, so that's really not an option. Would like to use the 5-point harness for at least another year.

Here's what I have been looking at. Can anyone tell me if this would work?
Two of the Diono convertible seats, forward facing + Chico KeyFit infant carrier, rear facing.

Do you think that would work okay? With the Chico in the center? I would love any input on this before I buy new seats! Thanks!


I've never tried that particular combination but I'm skeptical that they will all fit. I have fit 2 EvenFlo Triumph seats with a Combi Coccoro wedged between but it was a tight fit.

There is a new carseat coming out in october(I think) by graco called transitionz. It looks narrow and the harness is 18". Depending on your due date and if you can weight a bit it could work.

I suspect it would work, but that's based on Google Images of your back seat (and plenty of personal experience with both car seats you're suggesting.)

You might also look at the Harmony Defender. It's a combination seat, like the Nautilus, but narrow, and it's ~$100. I probably wouldn't wait for the Tranzitions in your case. It comes out next month.
