Compact RF car seat?

We're having to buy dd (2.10yo) a new car seat as her cybex sirona will be given to her preemie db.

Her car seat has to be placed in the middle of the row and needs to be compact enough to fit between 2 cybex seats and be able to secure by seatbelt (middle seat has no isofix).

Any ideas?! I want her RF as long as possible.

When I searching I found the Klippan triofix is the narrowest (or was at the time). I have twins plus 2 older kids so needed something compact two.
It is very expensive though and ended up getting 2 joie stages, which just about fit side by side.

If money had been no problem I would have got the triofix.

We've recently bought the Joie Tilt (RF to 18kg) for completely different reasons to you but mainly because it's smaller than our current Cybex Sirona. It is seatbelt only and far more compact than the Sirona. I drive an Audi A3 and still don't think it would fit beside the Sirona in the middle seat though.

Have now tested the Tilt (it was mainly for holiday use) and found it easy to fit, easy to get 17 month DS in and out of. Secure and comfortable. Recommended.

I have a tilt in a row of three too but the newer joie model, the steadi looks better. It has a sliding headrest so will give more rear facing time for children with longer torsos and I think it has a belt lock off in rear facing mode too. The tilt only has a belt lock off forward facing, it would be good to get a more secure fit rear facing, which it looks like the steadi should have.

Thanks. I'll have all 6 DC in car seats by the end of the month. I'll look into that one too! smile

Thanks for the tips.

DH ordered the Joie Steadi this morning but we are going to have ds4 use when he finally comes home, and keep dd1 in her cybex til she grows out of it.
