3 nr rear isofix positions preferably not a 7 seater?
Frv would be possible is there any thing else currently in production with a flexible rear row?
My dislike of 7 seaters is that we would only need one for 1 week a year and I’m not convinced by the 5 + 2 options having had someone attempt to park in the boot of a previous carPosted 4 years ago
Don’t have isofix seats, but have had 3 kiddy seats on the back of my Mondeo (and also 2 kiddy seats in with part of the seat folded to fit in an xmas tree). So I can’t say definitively, but it’s definitely worth a look – it’s a very wide car, with significantly more width in the rear seat than my previous 406.
Oh and also not too bad with 2 kiddy seats and one adult.Posted 4 years agoBreganteSubscriber
Another vote for the FRV. Granted not the sexiest car but that isn’t your priority. I’ve had mine almost 8 years and it’s been absolutely faultless, only needing a battery, Brake pads, wiper blades and tyres in that time.
I haven’t even had to replace a light bulb!
Ideal family car IMO. Three proper rear seats, you can slide the middle one backwards to give extra legroom if required and with the seats down its a huge load carrier.Posted 4 years ago
Have checked and it seems Mondeo only has 2 isofix fittings, but plenty of space and a 3 point belt in the middle for an adult or a traditional kiddie seat. Anyway I thought isofix was only used on seats for smaller kiddies, so not only is it only going to be needed one week a year, it’s also probably only going to be needed for a couple of years – didn’t appear to be an option when buying the seats our 4yo is now using.
Am I currently winning with the only suggestion of a normal shaped car (even if it doesn’t quite meet the specific suggested requirements)? 😉Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the advice, looks like the FRV won’t comply with my company car allowance policy (too much CO2 and too old)
Using the seats in non isofix mode means that 1 6′ adult can sit in between two of them in the current car.
Some isofix seats go up through the age range to 12yrsPosted 4 years agoswedishmattMember
T1000. Isofix seats have a weight limit which i think might be 18 kilos? 12 years surpasses that weight.
To the op get two non isofix seats if you dont move seats out often and put one of them in the middle or one in the front passenger seat (yes it’s safe as long as you deactivate the air bag). I bought a 7 seat santa fe which takes care of that occassinal need for mucho passengers for a short trip. Probably woyldnt meet your co2 requirements though of course.Posted 4 years ago
Isofix might be available for older kids, but not sure what the advantage is once the seat is simply sitting them up higher and the normal seatbelt is holding them in place – my seats don’t actually attach to the car at all. Fairly sure both my kids moved out of seats which attached to the car when they were 3.Swedish bob wrote:

My 4yo is over that (according to the report from school – I feel a new thread coming…) and not particularly big for his age.Posted 4 years ago
