For those on here who have young children, cars.com did a "Car Seat Check" on the Blazer and gave it a very positive score.



The verdict: Chevrolet resurrected its Blazer for 2019, but instead of a tough and rugged large SUV, the new model is a stylish, sporty, two-row SUV with space for five. For those with kids in car seats, the Blazer has easy-access Latch anchors and ample room for two car seats in its backseat.

A Grade
  • Latch: The two sets of lower anchors are exposed for easy access and connection.
  • Infant seat: The seat was easy to install and our 5-foot-6-inch-tall front passenger had ample room.
  • Rear-facing convertible: Again, the install went smoothly, and the front passenger had a comfortable amount of legroom.
  • Forward-facing convertible: The Blazer’s head restraint is small and flips back, so it didn’t prevent the convertible from sitting flat against the seatback. It’s also removable if need be. The three tethers on the seatback are clearly marked and easy to use.
B Grade
  • Booster: Again, the head restraint didn’t interfere with how the booster fit. The Blazer’s floppy buckles could make it difficult for kids to buckle up independently.

I've had to put an infant seat in the back a couple of times and it was incredibly easy to position and secure it.

I have a rear facing seat installed behind the driver, I am 5-10 and have no issues putting seat back. I also have a forward facing seat behind passenger side and they have plenty of leg room. I have not had to reach back to them yet...

What kind of car seat are you using? Would you recommend it?
sorry for being off topic.
I've been hunting for a good car seat for weeks now. I wouldn't have guessed that it such a tedious job. After being disappointed with the negative reviews on amazon. I checked out some online blog reviews. Well I got my ear full of features and hype. So there wasn't any useful in them what so ever. After a bunch of surfing I came across a different blog. These guys actually have tested the car seats. After I've read the best car seat for toddlers article but I can't make up my mind up. Can you recommend me a good one from the list? Any pointer is helpful.

We are using the Britax Boulevard and love it. Super safe. Easy to Install. Been using since infant got out of the infant seat. She is now almost 5 and still in it.

My 4 year old has a Britax convertible seat now that is pretty wide and bulky, and it actually fits great. My 18 year old found it too tight in the center of the bench seat, but he rides great right behind the passenger seat. I just upgraded to a booster; a Chicco MyFit. It's a little more narrow and less bulky than the Britax, so looking forward to receiving it! I know my son is VERY comfortable in both seats; only downfall with the Britax is it has no cup holder, and the middle console cup holders are too short! He can't reach around the seat to get to the holder. The Chicco has 2 integrated cup holders, so no issues there!

Just an update; got a pic of the convertible Britax in. Also got a pic of the new booster; I am THRILLED with how easy it was to hook up a car seat. We had a 2011 Dodge Avenger, and the LATCH anchors were so deep in the seat, it took me easily 15 minutes to wrestle that Britax OUT.

Got it out of the Blazer in about 1 minute flat, and had the new seat hooked up in under 5 minutes. It will go faster next time, now that I know where everything is, lol! Fits nicely on that middle hump, too, without squashing the passengers too much.
