    We have a 3door 207 and our LO has always been in the back. When he was in his first stage car seat we used an Isofix base which made it easier to get him in and out x

    A lot of brands do the base seperately. We had a silver cross travel system and bought base seperately.

    Do all car seats need a base? I have no idea! Lol. I was just panicking that the front seat wouldn't give me enough room to be able to get the baby in the back x

    Snap! We have the carbriofix maxi cosy seat and we have a three door polo. It's no more hassel than in a five door in my opinion.

    The bases aren't essential, just make it a little easier to get in and out, but honestly after 2-3 times with the seat belt, I was a dab hand at it. You can also use the base on mine to have the seat forward facing, but I've heard mixed things about the safety of being forward facing.
