We have tested some fantastic five-seater family SUVs in 2021! There is so much to weigh up in terms of cost, comfort, looks and drive let alone whether they fit three child seats across the back but let's face it, we don't all have three kids! The media systems and cameras seem to be improving constantly so visibility and connectivity are always getting better.
- Looking for five-seaters that will take three child seats across?
