Which Vehicles are Best for Car Seats?

When you are purchasing a new vehicle for your family, one of the factors you have to consider is the ease of installation of child and infant seats. Not all cars are car-seat friendly and finding vehicles best for car seats can be a daunting task. To make things easy for you, we have compiled a list of vehicles that will easily accommodate car seats.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV with two rows of seats. Though it is a compact SUV, it has enough room for two car seats in the back seat. One thing that makes the Equinox car-seat friendly is its easy-to-use LATCH system. The two sets of LATCH anchors are exposed, making the installation of both infant seats and child seats a breeze. The top tether anchors are clearly marked and sit halfway down the seatback. There are neither fit issues regarding seat contouring nor the head restraint. Rear-facing car seats are an easy fit and leave plenty of legroom for the front passenger once installed.

2017 Genesis G90

Just like the Chevrolet Equinox, the 2017 Genesis G90 has car-seat friendly back seats. This 5-seat sedan is spacious and luxurious, especially in the back seat. If you have an infant or a child, you can fit two seats in the second row. The two sets of lower LATCH anchors are located about a quarter-inch into the seat bight. The leather seat cushions are slightly stiff but do not interfere with seat installation. Both infant seats and rear-facing convertible seats can be installed with ease and while still leaving abundant legroom for the front passenger.

2017 GMC Acadia

Unlike the previous two cars, the 2017 GMC Acadia is an SUV with three rows of seats. This midsize SUV is car-seat friendly and can handle child-safety seats in all three rows. The second row of seats has two sets of lower LATCH anchors that are not hard to find. The third row does not have LATCH anchors, but it does have tether anchors that are easy to use. The second row can easily accommodate both an infant seat and a rear-facing convertible seat. Even with the two car seats installed, you will not feel the need to move the front seat forward.

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid

The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is a sedan enough room to fit two car seats in the back. Just like other cars in this list, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid also features two easy to access lower LATCH anchors. You can easily install a rear-facing convertible seat and an infant seat in the back row without pushing the front seat up. The back seats feature three top tether anchors behind the head constraints that make installing car seats extremely easy.

While there are plenty of family-friendly vehicles to choose from, these are some of the best cars that you can own for installing child safety seats for your kids.
