Hi bros,

I'm in the similar situation with the TS and are looking for a new ride to replace my out going Swift.

Any recommendations for which car I should be aiming for ?

Ideally, the car should be able to fit 2 child seat with my wife sitting in the middle.

Also, prefer to be 2nd hand car instead new. Can't really afford brand new now.

TIA

FYI, I'm driving a 1.5L sushi car and both my baby seats are at the rear and my wife will be sitting in between my 2 kids. Currently she is sitting comfortably in the middle except complaining that the air-con is too cold cos the centre vents are blowing directly to the rear. Getting on & off the car also no issue. I guess most cars can fit 2 baby seats and 1 adult comfortably bah. Unless the baby seats you are getting is those super thick and wide seats that will take up the entire rear. Otherwise, I guess it shouldn't be a problem.

Let me give you an idea.

I am driving a 1.6L kimchi sedan.

2 child seats, 1 in front and 1 at the back. I can't fit both child seats + my wife at the back. Max is 1 child seat + wife.

So no choice, my older child is riding shotgun with me.

To make it safer, front airbags are disabled by pulling out the airbag fuse. The impact from the airbag is quite deadly to young children so better to disable it.

I know some might bash me for the following reasons:
1. Child in front seat
2. Airbags disabled

But I have exhausted all options and since I can't afford a bigger car and there is no option to disable just the front passenger airbag, this is the last option that I have.

1. Airbags are deadly to young children if deployed in their face.
2. My child is in child seat.
3. Most cars didn't have airbags 20 years ago right?

As long as you drive safe and defensively, everything will be fine.

Thanks bro but I doubt my wife will let me do that. Of course, for safety reasons.

Plus, my current ride is gonna be scrap before 2nd baby arrive so might as well lokok for a ride that suits my requirement.

So far, only shortlisted ford focus.

I have a current gen pre-FL accord.
It can fit. Both are on LATCH/ISOFIX points. Both are full sized child seats able to take up to 20-25kg kids.

But the wife has to climb into between both child seats. Don't think if u are above 60kg, it would be comfy.

You can look at those pre-owned camry or accords i guess. But the older camry has no ISOFIX points. I'm not sure if the older accord has as well.

It's still safer than the child not wearing seatbelt or childseat [;)]

Thanks for idea bro !

Hahaha

Not saying the car is bad or what but don't know how reliable the car is.

I once considered getting a C4 but dropped the idea after having a chat on it with my mechanic..

Nonetheless, thanks for the suggestion bro

Thanks bro. But my eldest too young for booster seat. Just turned 2 recently.

So might be looking at infant basket + child seat to accommodate both in the rear for the time being.

I think I can help you out on this. And you definitely do not need an MPV just because you have 2 young children. I know this as I regretted getting an MPV and end up "under-using" the seats. In the end, I sold the MPV within a year & switched to a 5-seat SUV.

For your information, I'm using 2 "large & bulky" car infant seats (read: Britax + Safe & Sound) in the back of the car & yet able to accomodate another adult (maid) in the centre & you'll be surprised that quite a number of cars suit your requirements, you just have to test out the space physically when u visit the showrooms.

 

How does the adult helper get in and out? She gets in first and then second car seat is installed? And when she wants to come out, one of the car seats has to be removed first? Been thinking about this and wondering how to do it...

the problem about MPV is.....

the last row is so near to the road....if accident happen...sure kena jialat jialat one......that's what I'm worrying...

Normal sedan at least has the boot as buffer....

In reality we dont see MPV passengers get more badly injured than sedan after a rear end incident. If you buy a full size MPV, the seat position tend to be higher than normal sedan and there is still some space at the rear for crash zone, so it is not as dangerous as you think. I drove two Odyssey for total of 15 years when my children were younger, it was a enjoyable 15 years of family car ownership.

There are still some used MPVs (2009 reg, renewed 10 yr COE) in the resale mkt that are relatively affordable, at less than $6K annual depreciation

It is indeed a very nicely designed car which I was thinking very hard to purchase 2 years ago. Reliability and cost to maintain is always the key factor when buying conti cars. Wonder why Jap and Korean cannot design something close to the french?  [nosebleed]
