Can a baby carrier fit in the backseat of a Volkswagen New Beetle?

Just curious. About to buy a "new" (used) car.

  • No, my mom has one and none of my kids car seats fit right in it. Only a booster seat will fit.

  • When car shopping, take the car seat with you and try it out in the "new" car. If the seller has a problem with that, then you don't want to buy from them anyway.

  • Yes, you would be surprised just how roomy it is back there!!!

    A friend of mine bought one and comfortably fit 3 of her kids (ages 6-15) and her grand baby in it. Yes, a carseat will fit in the back BUT, it is a pain in the arse to get the carrier type in and out. Maybe think about using a sling/wrap and using a rear facing stationary seat.

    I had a tercel when my baby (the 3rd) was born, and it was a pain in the arse to get him an and out in an infant seat, so I made the switch almost immediately! worked wonderfully. Plus, when you are out somewhere people will not be tempted to touch a baby that momma is wearing on her with all their germy fingers! Oh, added benefit- baby will be cozy and not fuss when momma wears them.
