Yup hard to beat them for a family hauler.  Its crazy the space we need to haul the kid, stroller, and two big dogs around.

It gets worse with 2 kids. We bought a VW Atlas because our Rav4 was too small. Highly recommend the Atlas btw.

lol i bet.

I think we're finished at 2, unless I double my salary.

I have tremendous respect for anyone with 3 or more kids.

If it was up to Katherine, she'd have a small herd of children. She stays home with them, so we don't have the ridiculous costs of daycare thankfully. And she's getting the new 6-seater XC90 this year to better accomodate the family.

2020. It's the first year where they introduced the 6 seater XC90. So the second row of seats are captains. Easier to put two in the second row and the oldest in the third row.

I was thinking about getting an P2 XC90, but the P3 XC70 is actually wider in the rear seat. The three car seats fit better in the 70 than they do in the 90. I was also looking at the new V60s and V90s, but same story, they're like two inches narrower in the rear seat hip room than the XC70 - which is a lot when you have to fit three car seats. So I'll be sticking with the XC70.

It's really cool. She has been waiting to get an XC90 in June for a few years, but was unsure with three kids and looking at other brands that offered the second row captain seats. Volvo announced they were doing it and she was so excited. 

If I moved on the from the wagon, I would be looking for the same XC90 you are. 

Anyways. Back on topic. I still have the e30. It's stripped down for the winter - patching rust holes, reinstalling and refreshing the whole AC system, rebuilding the rear subframe, all new brake lines, calipers, rotors, and pads, sound deadening the interior, wheel bearings, etc. When Katerhine gets her XC90 in June, I'll be adding another fun car to the garage (not quite sure what yet).
