When you travel with kids, there are two things you need: appropriate seating space for the kids and plenty of storage space for all their stuff. The Fiat Freemont Crossroad meets both of your requirements, while providing a safe and comfortable ride. Parents also like it because it drives like an SUV.
Room For Your Family
The Freemont comes in a seven seat option, which makes for comfortable seating for all, with the addition of a third seat. Entering the second and third seats is made easy with a door that opens 90 degrees and with a sliding seat system on the second row. The vehicle has six airbags that cover each row of seats and ISOFIX child seat anchors for car seats.
In an era where requiring children to sit in booster seats is viewed as the best way to keep them safe, the Freemont features a pair of integrated child boosters that are standard and that just pop up when needed. The seats are for kids weighing between 15 kg and 36 kg, which might equate to about 10 or 11 years of age.
Fiat Freemont Crossroad Offers Ample Cargo Room
With children safe and sound in the car, what type of cargo capacity does the car have for luggage, baby gear, and sports equipment? The car has an overall capacity of 1461 litres with the seats folded down. Even with all the seats in use, there is still room to store a buggy and some small bags; within the cabin are 20 places to store items that offer over 140 L of space. You’ll find cubicles that can accommodate toys, snacks, and miscellaneous gear in flip up cubbies under the passenger seat and under each rear floor mat, a net that runs along the transmission tunnel, and a huge space below the instruments fascia in the front seat.
As kids get older, heavier, and taller, they have more adult concerns such as how much head room and foot room they’ll have in the Freemont. Independent reviewers find the car offers leg room in the second and third row that is more than adequate, while the head room only becomes an issue when you are carrying a carload of teen boys that each exceed 184 cm.
