3 Across Installations: Which Car Seats Will Fit in a Chevrolet Cruze?

The Chevrolet Cruze is one of the best selling small cars in the United States today, although it's not nearly as popular as the Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. However, it's still a popular choice for small or young families looking for a safe and affordable vehicle to transport their children in. This is why it's important to know how the Chevy Cruze rates when it comes to puzzling car seats inside it, especially when it comes to making 3 across installations possible or impossible.

You know the basics of best practices in car seat safety: rear-face as long as possible (ideally until 4!), and then forward-face as long as possible (ideally until 8!), and then booster until a regular belt fits your child (which typically happens between 10 and 12).

However, for this information to be helpful, you need to know if a particular car seat will fit in your particular vehicle. Here are my experiences fitting a range of seats inside various years of the Honda Pilot. I'll periodically update each page as I try more seats in more positions.

You can access the complete 3 across guide for every vehicle here and the complete list of recommended seats here.

Tips and Tricks:

The Chevy Cruze is 181 inches long and 71 inches wide, which makes it more challenging than the average vehicle to pull off a 3 across installation in. However, it's definitely possible to do so. Be sure to use a seat belt installation for all three seats to make this a more feasible affair.
