How do the car seats fit in the 2022 Land Rover Discovery?
Take a look at how the Latch system and each car seat below score on our car seat inspection for the 2022 Land Rover Discovery.
- latch: In the second row, the two lower sets of anchors are located under a large flap; Accessing and connecting to the anchors was easy. There are three upper tie anchors on the seat back. The external stabilizers are clearly marked and sit high on the seat back for great visibility, but the center is poorly marked and sits high on the seat back.
- infant seat: This rear-facing seat was easy to install, and the 5-foot-6-inch front passenger had plenty of legroom with the seat installed behind them.
- Convertible Back Facing: Again, this seat installed without problems and the front passenger legroom was unaffected.
- forward convertible: In the forward position, the convertible seat is easily installed. We routed the top rope mounting strap through the fixed headrest holes. The Discovery’s second-row fixed headrest still allows the convertible to sit on the back seat when it’s at its lowest point. If you lift the seat back up to accommodate a taller child, the firm headrest may get in the way.
- Third row latch: Again, there are two 3rd row lower anchors under the accessible tongue. The two top rope anchors are also easy to find and use.
- Supporter: Fixed buckles in the second row should make it easier for children to fasten the seat belt independently. However, it lost a degree, because the fixed headrest pushed the booster away from the seat back a bit; It should flush with the seat for safety.
- Third grade booster: Again, the fixed buckles in the third row are great, but the fixed headrest prevents the booster from sitting against the seat back.
- 3rd row front convertible: We had no trouble connecting to the lower 3rd row anchors, but the connection to the upper rope anchor necessitated a trip to the owner’s manual due to the Discovery 3rd row fixed headrest. The manual indicates that the belt is to be directed to the left of the headrest because it cannot be placed under it. If your headrest uses a double-strap setup, thread one strap around each side of the harness before attaching it to the anchor. The fixed headrest also pushed the car seat slightly off the seat back.
C . degree
- 3rd grade access: Moving the seats to reach the third row is a slow process via the power buttons on the side of the seats. The hatch is small, with a graduated height and is too tall for young children to manage on their own. The second row folds into a 40/20/40 split, but once the middle seat is folded it’s hard to climb up to get to the third row.
a: Plenty of space for a car and baby seat; It does not affect the driver’s or front passenger’s legroom. It is easy to find and connect latch and bolt anchors. There are no headrest or seat fitting issues. Easy access to the third row.
B: Single room, apt or connection issue. Some problems reaching third grade when available.
A: Marginal room plus fitting or communication problem. Difficult to reach third grade when available.
Dr: Insufficient space, as well as various installation or connection problems.
F: Inappropriate or unsafe.
About Cars.com Car Seat Inspection
Editors Jennifer Geiger and Jennifer Newman are certified child safety seat installers.
For the car seat inspection, we use the KeyFit 30 infant safety seat, the Contender 65 convertible seat, and the Graco TurboBooster seat. The front seats adjust for a 6-foot-tall driver and a shorter passenger. Three child seats are installed in the second row. The booster seat is behind the driver’s seat, and infant seats and convertible seats are mounted behind the front passenger seat.
We also install the forward-facing convertible in the second-row center seat with the booster seat and infant seat in the outer seats to see if; A child in a booster seat must have access to the seat belt buckle. If there is a third row, we install a booster seat and a convertible front seat. Learn more about.
Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch OR system, and that Latch anchors have a weight limit of 65 pounds, including the weight of the child and the weight of the seat itself.
