If you have young children, finding a vehicle that is car seat friendly is probably at the top of your list. You’ll likely be looking for something equipped with LATCH which are Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children’s car seats. Tether anchors are used on every forward facing car seat in addition to lower anchors or pretensioners.

Rosen Auto Group is here with a few recommendations for the best cars to install child car seats to give you extra peace of mind during your car shopping experience.

2-Row SUV

The Subaru Forester is a great compact SUV for families with its combination of safety and technology. The Forester has a more functional interior than its competitors and can hold a variety of car seats in 3-across scenarios.

The Forester is equipped with tether anchors in all three rear seats. There are lower anchors in the second row driver’s side seat as well as the second row passenger side seat. The second row center seat has a lower anchor that is shared with the second row passenger seat which can only be used for car seats, not boosters.

3-Row SUV

If you’re in need of that extra room that a three row SUV provides, the Volkswagen Atlas or the Subaru Ascent are great options. The Ascent has more safety features and the pretensioners in the second row driver’s side and passenger side make it an ideal choice for families with older kids in boosters. The Atlas is great for fitting multiple car seats while preserving access to the third row.

Full-Size SUV

The Ford Expedition has a roomy second and third row and offers lift-and-slide mechanisms for access to the third row without disturbing the car seats. LATCH is in most of the rear seats along with, head restraints, and inflatable seat belts in the second row driver and passenger seats which improve safety.
