I need to find a second car seat for the family cars. I need one that will fit in a VW Beetle and our Britax Marathon is too big. Does anyone have a suggestion of what might fit in small cars. I was looking at the Evenflo but they too seem too tall. Thank you for your help.

Quoting Shannon Chesley

"We really like our Recaro YoungSport (13 month old- hand me down from older brother), and also have Graco Nautilus (for our 3 yr old). We have a 06 Subaru Legacy (which has a surprisingly SMALL backseat) and a 08 VW GTI (which has a bigger backseat, more legroom) than the Subaru."

Is your GTI a 2 door or 4 door? I have a 2009 VW GTI 2 door and I'm trying to decide on a convertible car seat.

We have a Mini Cooper - which has basically no back seat room - and we got a Britax Dipolomat to fit back there rear-facing! It's even remarkably easy to get our gal in and out of it.

Check out www.safekids.org for information on seats and local car seat checks in our area.

bottom of page has a bunch of links for car seat data.

Also, sometimes you can find your car in here and see what others have:

I used to have the link for a site that listed a lot of car seats and all their weights/dimensions, but I can't find it now - sorry!

We like both carseats in both cars.
