Why would you like to place the child seat there?

To make sure there is ample room for 2 adults in the rear as the gap for the centre passenger is a little tight.

That's gonna be very tight, as the back seats of the V40 are moved towards the centre of the car. Further, even if you find one, I suspect it's gonna be unstable. I therefore plan to locate my booster behind the passenger seat.

As long as the seat will fit between the 2 belt clips it won't be any less stable than being on either side. I rarely travel with passengers, mainly short trips at weekends with the family, and when I do there is often 5 of us.

It might be less stable, but you can check at the store. As there are five of you, I understand you want to place it in the middle. Please let us know when you have found one that fits.

The one in my V50 is 24.5 cm wide and fits fine, the gap on the V40 is only 23.5 but with a bit of brute force and ignorance it may fit which will save some cash.
