I have a 2016 KL and my grandsons car seat fit in the center back seat but it did touch the center console. When my daughter went looking for a new SUV and given issues with trying to find a comfortable fit for her two babies in car seats, she just brought her seats with her to the car dealers and put them in to see how they actually fit. Smart lady I think as she was surprised how many SUV's of all sizes did not accommodate two car seats very well or even fit one seat in the center. Car seats have no standard dimensions so a half an inch here and an inch here makes a big difference when installed in the center as you cannot move the console nor back seat. Also a big consideration is the ease of installation which was not too easy in some cars. Forget the specs and bring your seat(s) and install them that way no surprises.

It has the LATCH system and attachment points behind the rear seats for car seats when front facing. No problem with a seat on each side. Never tried the center. Agree with gatoriaied. Bring seats and try because, as you know, they have varied shapes.

I should have noted that most car seat issues are in the back facing position required for infants and a center position is preferred. This position needs a lost more space front facing. To give you an idea of some of the cars which did not fit my daughter's car seat was the Honda Pilot. She could not even fit the seat in the center position. As said, it did fit my 16 Trailhawk, however it did touch slightly the center console.
