Hi,

Needing to buy the next stage up car seat ASAP. Would like child to be rear facing for as long as possible so I'm considering buying this one. If you have one what are your thoughts on it? Also does anyone have one in a Nissan Juke as I'm concerned that the front passenger could end up with hardly any leg room?! Thanks

Radian is very big rear facing, two way elite might be a better option or axkid minikid or move

I checked the fit list for the Radian and it does say the front seat would need to be right forward. It says the same thing for our Mazda 3 which we have a minikid in and can get a 6ft 2 passenger in.

Thanks for your help - the Radian does look like it takes up a lot of space but with my current car seat and the isofix base, the front passenger seat is still quite far forward. I just didn't want to it to be pushed any more forward really! I've just looked at the minikid and it's a bit too expensive for me unfortunately as I can only spend a max of £200!

The axkid move is very similar to the minikid but has a rethread harness instead of an auto adjust. I think it's about £220. The britax two way elite is about £180.

Actually precious little one have the move on offer at £195 https://www.preciouslittleone.com/product-information/37/63516/axkid-move-car-seat-black/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIntzf64TC3AIViIjVCh04LACzEAkYASABEgLB2fD_BwE

If you ask on the Facebook group a to z of rear facing someone might have experience of a juke and what fits best.

I agree about looking at the Axkid Move or the Britax TWE. They'd be more compact than the R5.

Also look on the Facebook group 'Car Seat Advice UK' for post about the Juke.
