Which Vehicles are Best for Car Seats?

Family-Friendly Vehicles

When you are buying a family car, you want to know what the most car-seat friendly vehicles are. To make things easy for you, we have compiled a list of vehicles that are best for car seats.

2018 Volkswagen Passat
The 2018 Volkswagen Passat is one of the largest sedans on the market and has enough room to install two car seats in the second row. The back seat is quite roomy and the LATCH anchors are easy to access. The two sets of LATCH anchors are easy to use and the top tether anchors are located on the rear shelf. Infant seats and front- and rear-facing convertible seats all fit easily and you won’t face any problems during installation. Booster seats also fit well after the head restraint is raised slightly.
2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is a 5-seater midsize SUV. The vehicle has enough room to install three car seats in its second row. The two sets of LATCH anchors are located in the outboard seats and sit a half-inch between the bottom seat cushions and back. The LATCH anchors are ideal for rigid and hook-like connectors. Access to anchors is simplified by reclining the seats. You can also install a rear-facing infant seat in the second row, but you have to push the front seat slightly. Convertible car seats can also be easily installed in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
2016 Nissan Frontier
The 2016 Nissan Frontier is a midsize pickup truck that can either carry work supplied or transport a family of five. Despite being a pickup truck, the Frontier is car-seat friendly and its second row can easily accommodate three car seats. The twin sets of LATCH anchors are easy to access and located behind vertical slits in the leather upholstery. The three top tether anchors are located behind the rear seats which make their access a bit difficult. For example, you need to fold the seatback forward to access the tether anchor.
2014 Honda Pilot
The 2014 Honda Pilot is one of the largest vehicles with three roomy rows and lots of cargo space. The second row can accommodate three car seats (an infant seat, booster seat, and a front-facing convertible seat) while the third row can accommodate two car seats. The second row has three sets of LATCH anchors while the third row has one. Rear-facing convertible seats and infant seats fit well in the second row without moving the front seat forward. The third row has three top tether anchors and like the second row, can handle front-facing convertible seats with ease.
Car seats are crucial to child safety. Car seats have been shown to reduce the risk of injury by 71% to 82% and also reduce the risk of death by 28% in comparison to seat belts alone. The vehicles given in the list have features that make installing car seats for infants and children a breeze, thus increasing the safety of children while on the road.
