Hi there-
My wife and I are trying to sort out if it’s possible to fit 3 car seats in our 2021 XC60 but the initial reading I’ve done doesn’t look promising. I realize that the seats we have now will likely not fit and I’m prepared to purchase 3 new seats if it can prevent us from changing out vehicle. Right now we have a 2.5 year old in a Nuna Rava and are expecting twins in February. We have a Uppababy Mesa from our first ones birth that’s we could use if we can figure out a configuration that would work.

In summary, we will need to have a set up that accommodates a 3 year old and two newborns. I very much appreciate everyone’s help in advance!

Your middle seat is very tight, in particular. I don't think you'll be able to make it work with the seats you currently have. Is the eldest going to be rear or forward facing?

I’m totally open to purchasing new seats if there is a tried and true configuration. We’d like to keep him rear facing as long as possible as he’ll only be 3 but can put him forward facing if absolutely necessary.

There's nothing tried, that I'm aware of. Looking at your vehicle seats and dimensions, and taking the needs of multiples into account, I would try a Graco Slimfit3 LX/True3Fit (same seat, 2 names) for the eldest (likely center) and the Clek Lling or maybe Chicco Keyfit for the babies; all seatbelt installs to maximize space. You'll need to check for independently tight installs and I would purchase from somewhere with easy returns such as Target or Amazon.

Thanks ketchupqueen! If I upgrade to the XC90 do you think it’d fit with the existing car seats 3 across in the second row?
