Question Best seats for three across


New member
We need to look at three across in our 2012 Elantra Touring. Our current arsenal of seats include: Foonf, Radian R120, Frontier and Scenera. We will need to purchase an infant seat (ideas on the narrowest? We loved our old keyfit but it's expired).

Currently we have 5.5yo (53lbs 7/8 clothes size) FF behind driver in the Foonf, 2.5yo (30lbs 3T clothes) RF behind passenger in the Radian with angle adjuster. Scenera (bought for a trip - really not a fan) and the Frontier are in the spare car (and I haven't been a fan of it either).

DDs will be 6 and 3 when we need to do 3 across. Not real budget since figuring this out will be cheaper than a new car! I have had my eye on a Oobr for DD1...but want to make sure it would work.

We got the Oobr but the seat belt clip thingy (technical term :p) is recessed in a way that is making it annoying to bucket and impossible to use the LATCH. Any thoughts or official guidance on seatbelt extenders and car seats?
