It doesn't look like it's rear facing but I don't actually know. I've just got a Klippan Kiss 2 (also known as an Akta Graco Duologic II). The infant carrier part (only up to 10kg) can be removed and fitted seperately with a seat belt and has a telescopic handle and wheels so you can wheel it around. It is from birth to 18kg. The BeSafe izi Combi isofix or non-Isofix is also from birth to 18kg. I've just bought this but not fitted it yet. They both look like they have a lot of leg room and actually fit nicely even in a small car. They're expensive but you wouldn't need to buy a new one until your child is around 4 (probably older seen as s/he is only 6kg at 16months). I think there might be others that go from birth to 18kg as well.
I bought my Klippan Kiss today for £150 in a warehouse clearance shop. I was so excited because I was planning on buying it at £300! It is ridiculous. We need more competition to lower the prices of them.
