Hi Donald - 150 kilos is equal to at least two fully grown adults and as the extra seats are very close yo the rear of the cabin their additional weight will be directly over the rear axle - so you may also have to consider what weight if any is overhanging the rear axle. As a matter of interest how much extra pressure do they recommend during an increased load. My local tyre dealer is now recommending I increase the front tyre pressures by 2 psi on the front of my Laguna II as he states in his experience it improves tyre life without reducing grip. I would be a bit loathe to do so considering any future insurance implications and it may upset the tyre pressure warning system.
