From your experience, is the rear seat have enough room (especially width) for 2 child safety seats and 1 booster (or 3 child safety seats) ?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, not sure about the Stepway but in my Duster I can only fit two car seats in the back with a small gap between. If I have 3 kids in tow I have to use boosters for all three. Im not sure how much difference there is between the two but would guess the Duster is marginally bigger

I've got a logan and my experience is you can get a car seat (high back booster) a rear facing baby seat in the rear, I have to put the other one in the front (but that's only to keep the middle ones mitts from prodding the Baby)
But then that leaves enough space in the middle for another adult, I have had 2 Britax evolva 123's in the back either side (fairly stocky seats) and a bog standard highback booster in the middle, the only problems being getting your hand around to fasten the belts,and a slight wallop of the seat upon closing the door, but like I said the evolvas are very wide.

I think the sanderos/ Stepways are the same in width etc... Hope that helps.

If you have three kids have you considered that the Duster could only manage three stars in the ncap rating' not trying to be confrontational but that is the lowest for any new car

The safety rating was mostly due to pedestrian safety and lack of stability control as standard. Think the duster comes with stability control now and the kids will be fine as long as they are inside the car.

Absolute tosh. I wish folk would take the time to look beyond these stupid star ratings.

It lost one star for not having ESC as standard on all models - something most of us have lived happily without for years, (and in any case the law has changed so it's now forced upon you whether you want it or not)

It lost the other one due to "poor pedestrian protection" which is an absolute farce - since when did we, as a species, lose the ability to work out that stepping into the path of a large moving object would be a Bad Idea? The teaching of basic common sense to our children is the most important form of "pedestrian protection" there is - anyone remember the Green Cross Code?

In conclusion, Psy, unless you plan to stand your children in the road and drive into them, this three-star nonsense is of little consequence - put it to one side while making your decision.

I think my old k reg ford escort had ESC, I managed to drive that for years without skidding or crashing ;-)

@Psy

Where are you?

You may find a helpful forum member nearby if your local dealer won't let you try the seats in the car (though they'd be stupid not to)

Love all this ncap 'fear' for christ sake I traded up from a 12 year old Pug 406, not to mention the Capris, Cosworths and Cameros I used to blast around in, there idea of ncap was a safety devices rollcage and a 5 point harness!

Thanks for the answers guys!

@Panders - yeah, the stepway should be smallest then duster, which car seats do you use?

@carlos - that's great to hear! For my needs I have 1 britax boulevard, 1 britax b-agile infant car seat and 1 booster.
Do you have enough space for adult in the middle (instead of 1 car seat)?

@nightsuperstephen - the sansero stepway got 4 stars.

@sidaorb - we've got a dealership pretty close, so I'll find some free time and check this out closer.

Hi there yes that's how we normally travel, the wife hops in the middle and acts as peacemaker, the 3yo and 6yo (today!) swap places.
I had 3 car seats and a baby mount and rear facing seat in one go yesterday, and despite the usual lack of patience from my eldest there was no complaints.

Hi psy

I have a Maxi Cosi Axiss for my toddler and a Graco Nautilus Elite for my 6yo. These are both fairly large seats but if I have someone seated between them, the seats tend to hit the doors when closed. I have 3 of the cheap foam booster type seats if I have to take my 6yo and his friends out. Then the 3 will comfortably fit it in, just a bit awkward with the belts I find. The Axiss also sits out from the back seat quite a way so find I have nice little foot prints over the back seat protectors. I have the same seats in my CRV which is clearly a bigger car but even in that it's tight so I guess it's nothing out of the ordinary in this respect.
