Question 3 across in Volvo xc90



Hi there! I have a 6 year old still in a 5pt harness foonf and needing to be in a booster, but it doesn’t fit in my 3across backseat of my ML350 suv. His sisters: 4 year old in rear facing foonf (could be turned around but still very petite - 35 lbs) and 16 months still in a bucket seat but should be in a rear facing convertible. We need a new car but haven’t figured out what to get - due to fit of the 3!

The 2 Foonfs plus a Maxi-Cosi RodiFix or a Peg Perego Flex 120 for the oldest should work well. If you get the XC90 with the integrated center booster seat, you could use that for the 6yo in the middle and the 2 Foonfs on the sides.

I’d also highly suggest taking a look at the VW Atlas. It is very kid/car seat friendly. It has more front to back space in the 2nd and 3rd row than the XC90 too. The SEL with R-Line package is an extremely nice vehicle. If I were shopping for a new car in that vehicle class, the Atlas would be far and away my top choice.


Thanks for the replies! With respect to the xc90 center integrated booster, have you seen a child in it with two car seats beside? I’m concerned he will feel really low and squished?

Those two recommended boosters don’t sound familiar to me. I should mention I am in Canada...

Also, I’ll definitely check out the Atlas!
