From the driver’s side of the all-new 2012 Hyundai Veloster, it looks like a sporty coupe. Walk around to the passenger side, and presto chango, there are two doors instead of one. In truth, the Veloster is a three-door hatchback. While a three-door car sounds odd, it makes life a lot easier if you’re loading kids and their child-safety seats into this four-seater versus a similarly sized coupe.

For the Car Seat Check, we use a Graco SnugRide 30 rear-facing infant-safety seat, a Britax Roundabout convertible child-safety seat and Graco high-back TurboBooster seat.

How many car seats fit in the second row? Two

Editor’s note: For three car seats — infant-safety seat, convertible and booster seats — to fit in a car, our criterion is that a child sitting in the booster seat must be able to reach the seat belt buckle. Parents should also remember that they can use the Latch system or a seat belt to install a car seat.
