Swivel car seat for Ford Focus?

Hi all, can anyone recommend a swivel toddler car seat for a Ford Focus? 11 mo DS is nearly too tall for his i-size infant seat so we need a good next option. We want to stay rear facing for as long as practical and the swivel feature would be useful for not having to lean in to the car as far on our narrow driveway. We do need to be able to use the front passenger seat though so nothing too huge...?

If he's tall and outgrowing an infant car seat at 11mo, you really need to be looking for a 25kg seat. He's likely to outgrow an 18kg seat by height before he's 4 and then you'd have to buy another seat because he'd be too young for a high back booster.

25kg seats - look into the Axkid Minikid and the Britax Two Way Elite. There are others (Axkid Move, Britax maxway, Diono Radian 5, Be Safe Izi Plus) but we have both the Axkid Minikid and the Britax TWE and they both fit in a Fiesta so no problem in a Focus.

Thanks! That's a really good point about him possibly outgrowing the next seat early. Neither DP nor I are tall so the rate that DS is growing out of things has taken us by surprise!
