Which Vehicles are Best for Car Seats?

As a parent, your first priority is your child’s safety. If you are planning on purchasing a car, you should know which vehicles are best for car seats. Here is our list of the most family-friendly cars on the market.

2018 Toyota 4Runner

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner is a rugged SUV that can tow almost anything. The roomy interiors of this vehicle make it best for all kinds of car seat accommodations. The 7-seat Toyota 4Runner model features three seat rows while the 5-seat model has two. The second row in each model can easily accommodate three car seats of any type.

The two sets of LATCH anchors are hidden in slits of leather but are easily accessible. Since the seats can recline, you will not face any problems in accessing the anchors. In addition, the tether anchors are clearly marked and located near the top of the seatbacks.

2019 Ford Edge

The 2019 Ford Edge is a top-of-the-line SUV with great styling and safety features. The second seat row can easily accommodate two car seats. Although the backseat is roomy, accessing the LATCH anchors might be difficult for some people. The reason is the two sets of anchors are concealed in the cutouts in stiff leather, so connecting the seats requires some muscle. However, the tether anchors are easy to locate and connect. They are located midway down the seatback. Infant seats fit well and connect easily to the lower LATCH anchors. Installing a rear-facing convertible is a bit tough, as it can be hard to locate the anchors. Despite this, there is still plenty of legroom for front passengers after installing car seats.

2019 Honda Odyssey

The 2019 Honda Odyssey is quite popular with families. The minivan has many family-friendly features, including car-seat friendliness, and many people don’t know the Honda Odyssey is also known as the car seat king. This is due to its oodles of interior space and five sets of LATCH anchors (most cars only have two).

The second row can easily accommodate three car seats while the third row has enough room to install two. The three sets of lower LATCH anchors are easy to access and use, and tether anchors are located on the second-row seatbacks. The two sets of LATCH anchors in the third row are also a breeze to use. Installing rear- and front-facing convertible seats, as well as booster seats, is easy in the Odyssey.

2019 Kia Sedona

The 2019 Kia Sedona is a spacious and comfortable minivan. The minivan is available in both two-row and three-row seat configurations. The second and third rows are quite spacious for children. The second seat row has enough room to install two car seats, and you will find a set of LATCH anchors in the third row. The LATCH anchors may be difficult to find but you will not have a problem with installation. In addition, the tether anchors are easy to locate.
