How to fit child seats and baby capsule in a 2016 Mustang

​Unexpected family car.

We tested using the convertible, EcoBoost Mustang. At first glance it might not look like you can – the anchor points get hidden when the roof is down. However, the back is surprisginly roomy for a sports car and the front seats have a lot of forward/back motion options.

Looking in from the back window there are two plastic covers sticking out behind the rear seats.

Remove the cover and it’s easy to access the anchor point and attach the strap.

This was the baby capsule cradle we needed to install.

Both the car seat and toddler seat fit in the back. However, the capsule overhangs a lot meaning the front rear seat can’t go back very far. The stiff, sculpted nature of the rear seats mean that you’ll likely need towels to secure the capsule cradle.

And here you have a family of four. Just note how little room the driver has thanks to the baby capsule.

While it looks like a kerfuffle to install and extract the seats (and kids) without having the roof down, the long travel of the front seats means its easy to install the seat and capsule - and strap kids in - even when the roof is up.

STYLISTIC Q702

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
