2018 kia sorento - can I add 3rd row seats?

I have a Sorento, and it only has two rows. My husband and I got the car with the intentions of having 1 more child and the opportunity came to adopt 3 littles.


My question is, with my SUV being a 2 row vehicle can I get an after market or take it to the dealer and have a 3rd row put in?

It's more then just adding the third row seat. The 2nd row seats are also slightly different as they are designed for easier access to the third row. Then there is the addition of the third row seatbelts. I can compare against my brother's sorento as he has one with the third row. overall i doubt that it's an easy swap, or even something that the dealer would want to help with.

I'm sure there is a legal and also an insurance issue with adding another row.

The third row also has its own side airbags so no, don't think it can be retrofitted.
