Hi Tua,

Sounds to me like you might need a good-sized estate car. Have a look at the Mazda6 Tourer, Ford Mondeo Estate or Volkswagen Passat Combi. The Toyota Avensis Tourer and Hyundai i40 are worth a look too. Generally you should be able to fit three child car seats in the back of any of those but bring along the seats and kids on the test drive to make sure, as it really does depend on the sizes of the seats.
