    Hiya,

    Hoping someone can help me. I am looking into getting a Kona Hybrid as my next car, I have been for test drive a while back and loved it but with the current COVID restrictions car dealers won’t let you inside the car.

    I currently have a Fiat 500x with a whole lot of issues but a big one for my 7 year old son is that he is unable to plug his seat belt in himself. I’ve checked different sized car seats in our car but it’s the same issue. We need to push the seat with him in it to be able to get the seat belt in; this is causing a problem for me and some days I am really struggling with it. There’s also the safety concern of his seat being able to be pushed over despite it being “Isofix”. I had a hire car last year, the Vauxhall Mokka and had no issues with the car seat in it. The car seat did not move at all and the seat belt went in no problem at all so much so my son could do himself.
    I don’t believe the issue to be the size of the car but possibly the design of it.

    Does anyone use a child’s booster seat (level 3) in the back of a Hyundai Kona and have any issues? Or are the kids able to put the seat belt on themselves? If they are able to do it themselves, do you mind me asking what can seat you have so I can look up the dimensions to compare with ours please?

    I have googled this in every way possible but I can’t find an answer that gives me any indication either way.

    Any help would be appreciated 😊

    I don’t know about the Kona as such. But I have had three children in various car seats for the last 10 years. It comes down to the width of the car and the amount of space they can leave between the seat belts. If its a narrow car then the base of the car seat can end up on top of the seat belt retainer. I have had to have mpv cars for the last 10 years in order to fit 3 seats side by side as mpvs are wide bodied and have 3 individual chairs each designed for a child seat.
