My FIL has one. We couldn't fit 2 adults with a car seat in the middle unless the adults were very thin unlike my Mazda CX5 which we can. The back seat is narrow. You might have to try and fit the narrowest width seats you can find, which might mean getting 3 new seats, which is cheaper than a new car!

We dont have the same car as you. But I just wanted to throw out there... Can your eldest go in the middle, in the  forward facing seat?

We have twins and put 2x rear facing and 1x forward facing in our car with our eldest in the middle, forward facing.  She was able to climb in and out quite easily. And even though the twins are now 2.5yrs we still have our eldest in the middle

We measured the inside of our car then checked out all the car seat specs so we knew which configuration to buy... you may need to buy new/different seats but hopefully you can fit them all in.

Good luck.

Head to the baby shop and try.
We have a Tucson and I was needing to fit 3 across: a 0-4 seat FF; plus a booster and a harnessed to 8 years seat . It was tricky but we got there. Install the middle first and I would agree that the FF seat goes there, with the RF ones then on the ends.
Baby Bunting were such a great help

What seats do you have now? Depending what they are you may be able to keep them, but they may need replacing.

If you need new seats:
For the FF seat look at infasecure Grandeur (aka titanium or cadence or achieve) or Britax maxi guard (base model or pro)

For the RF seats look at Britax graphene or brava or Compaq, or infasecure quattro (aka duet or attain)

Recommend you consider at least one RF infasecure seat as you can swap the top tether adjuster to either side of the seat. The Britax seats have the tether adjuster fixed to the left of the seat which isn't easily accessible for the seat installed on the driver's side.

We have this car in a 2008 model and have had 1 rf in a safe and sound (guardian or premium, can’t remember which) and 2 ff, one in a maxi rider and one in a hi liner booster.  We thought we would have to replace the maxi rider as they are not compact, but it all fitted.   And we had it done by our local RAC so it was all done properly, not just by us chucking them in!

From memory, I think the hi liner was in the middle?  It was awkward for the booster seatbelt to do up, but the child in thst seat was all over it.  Now we just have the maxi rider and the high liner and it really is a squish for my 12 year old to sit in the middle.  Tossing up whether to take my not that big 10yo out of a seat, or for he 6yo to move to a hi liner.

Unfortunately the Tucson had a major upgrade and redesign in 2016 so older versions could be more roomer. I know the old box type Nissans had great flat rear seats but the newer models got all curved and ergonomic which makes it harder to fot carseats on.
