Hi all,

Can you help - I have a 2014 Rav 4 and wondering if I'm going to get 3 across the back? I currently have 2 and can't imagine fitting another in the middle, but maybe i'll just need to look at changin seats?
When needed I will have a 4 yr old, 1.5 yr old and newborn. I'd prefer to keep 1.5 yr old rf as long as possible.
I currently have a safe n sound meridian (rf), and Infasecure Titanium Quantum.

Any help appreciated!

If there's a baby store near you many of them let you try car seats in the car.  And if you're on fb there's a couple of child restraint groups that might be able to help and you can get information on which seats are the narrowest then try those.  You get best fit by putting the middle seat in first.

Eta:  I had to replace one seat to get 3 across in our car.

I found Baby Bunting fantatsic for trying all different combinations and finding a 3 across solution. She spent loads of time with me puzzling out a solution for now and even an option for 12-18 months time when I will need to change one of my current seats. Highly recommend going in and asking for help with what you're trying to do.

The Titanium is the narrowest harnessed to 8 years seat I believe so that's a good start! Meridians though are not so you may have to be open to replacing that one as well as buying a thord.

There may be issues with the way the vehicle seat belts are overlapping. Check the Australian section/insert of the vehicle user manual.

Thanks future-self, unfortunately we live in regional WA so no where near a baby bunting.
Will look in to it, thanks cheesy sanga!

Are there 3 anchor points in the back row?

Nevermind, I just realised mine actually does have 3 points. One is in the roof!

Yes - it has three anchor points on the back of the seats.
