What Car? Personal Shopper

The reader

Dear What Car?,

We’re really struggling and could do with some help, given your expertise. Here's the exam question for you: we have three children, one aged five and weighing 17kg, one aged four and weighing 16kg and a four-week old baby. We are looking for a car in which we can fit three child car seats – ideally across the width of the car safely.

We own a BMW X5 and it’s not wide enough; we've just tried the Skoda Kodiaq and that doesn't work either. Any ideas? Our budget is around £50,000.

The brief

  • SUV or family car with enough space for three child car seats, ideally across the width of the car
  • Spacious and practical
  • Around £50,000
