And as noted above, you have to retro fit the third row to an E63, but it's not impossible.
Not to mention strapping small kids into a fake 3rd row, i mean fucking really, get a proper vehicle. if you get rear ended those kids are fucked.

I'd bet the rear area of an E63 is safer than the third row of an Escalade or similar. And as you mentioned, things like the CX9 look downright scary. But I'm not really a fan of any third row. I'm lucky, I have one kid, he goes in the middle.

i'd bet you're probably right. big SUV doesn't really mean 'safe'. To me it means crappy brakes, more likely to roll, and less chance you can safely perform an emergency lane change.
