Question Minivan 3rd row



What is the best minivan for backless boosters in the 3rd row? They would be for my 10 year old twins in Britax Parkways. In the second row I have a 3 year old and 1.5 year old in Britax Marathon Clicktights.

Are they Parkway SGLs, with LATCH? If you want to latch them both in, the only minivan I’m aware of that has lower anchors that line up with the seat belts in both 3rd row outboard positions is the Honda Odyssey.

If you don’t want to latch them in, avoid the Town & County/Caravan (the belt geometry 3rd row outboard is awful—the shoulder belts would hover inches in front of them if you tried to put them back there) but nearly any other minivan will be fine.

10 years is almost certainly over the weight limit for LATCH, right?

2 big Britax seats have worked quite well in the 3rd row on my Odyssey.

For a harnessed seat, almost certainly. OP was asking about latchable boosters, where the lower anchors only have to restrain the booster itself, and the child is restrained by the seat belt. The child’s weight doesn’t factor in there.
