Here is a link I found when trying to convince my wife that car seats would fit well in the rear of the V. It is very helpful to those looking to buy a car that have little kids.

I also figured out that you could actually get 1 car seat AND two more people in the back, since you can mount the car seat to the anchors in the middle and have two people (smaller obviously) sit beside them.. The interior 'hip room' in the rear is the same as my Jeep Liberty but the seats are bigger in the V on the sides.

Can you really mount the car seat in the middle? That article says there are only two Latch anchors - one for each seat.

there are the anchors down in the seat, not just on the back.

I am talking about the lower anchors to quickly install the seat. I felt for them in the NA V just to make sure.. that way you will be using one anchor for each seat..

Regardless, if you used those rear anchors, they would work the same way if you mounted it to the middle, i think..

I have no kids, and this has no interest to me at all, however, I'm impressed with how it seems Hyundai thought this through
I think a hatchback is a great car configuration for a young couple, lots of space, economical, and clearly, able to hold all sorts of kid seats

This was the first question my wife asked when I took her to see a NAV for size comparison. My 4 year-old daughter will likey be the sole occupant of the back seat.

got a pic with seats in the back.. fits quite well.. Passenger seat adjusted for me to fit comfortably (if i ever sit there) with some headroom to go.. I am 5'7"..

the carseat is on the BIG side and IS reclined.. there is about 1" from the back of the carseat structure to the back of the passenger seat..

When the carseat is NOT reclined, there obviously is even more room.

I have both a front facing child seat and a booster seat for my 4 year old in my VT and both fit great with no space issues. Pretty easy getting the kids in and out (booster on drivers side) and the kids LOVE the hatch and sunroof glass so they can look at the sky while we drive.

I'm not sure how others feel about it, but the first thing I do after starting mine is turn off ESC I reserve that system for a rainy day when I'm not interested in actually "driving".
Can I ask why you posted this in a thread about child seat fitment?

I have two car seats in mine. Both front facing but one is a belt positioning booster. I have that behind the driver’s seat. It is difficult to (my son can't really do it and even tough for me reaching over him) buckle his seat belt. I need to find a seat with a narrower base or try to move his seat over more.

I thought I read in the owner’s manual to never put a car seat in the middle, could be wrong though.

I have a two year old and he fits just fine. We use either a graco or an air series in the car. Right now he's on the passenger side as we only have one child. When/if a second one comes into play he will move to behind me in a booster seat.

They also make boosters that fit in bucket seats, I found one actually at target. In case your kiddies are bigger. My daughter LOVES my VT!
