You got your answer, but just FYI, since 2003, NHTSA rules require any vehicle with a second row of seats must equip at least 2 seats with upper & lower LATCH anchor points, and additional seating positions must include at least the upper anchors. If a vehicle has more than 2 rows, at least one set of upper & lower anchors must be in the second row.Does anyone know if there will be child seat Latches in the R1T?
I have triplets that are 6, and my oldest is 8. I had a van with 3 in the second row and the oldest in the back using lower anchors. However, the LATCH/ISOFIX is really just for convenience, you can put the twins using the lower latches and the oldest you can just run the seatbelt through the seat in combination with the upper anchor. All car seats must accept either connections, and seats have different weight limits for weight anchors.I have twins. The oldest is 2 years older. All are going to be in car seats for at least another year or 2.
A lot of of midsize SUVs ( Outlander, Highlander...etc ) do not include upper anchors which means you are not allowed to put car seats that must be tethered in the back, but you can put boosters. There are many reasons for this, some are :This is better than our Volvo XC90, which doesn’t even have top tether anchors on the third row seats. It’s the weirdest decision for a brand that prides itself on safety.
