Group 1 car seat for a fiat 500?

DD (14m) is nearly out of her maxicosi cabriofix (only height-wise, we'd have ages left if she wasn't so unfeasibly long). Is it possible to get a group 1 seat to fit my fiat 500 or am I doomed to selling it?! I'd like to keep her rear-facing if at all possible...

britax 2 way elite?

Thanks - I'd not seen that one. On the 'does it fit my car' bit on the britax site it isn't coming up as an option, so it's maybe too big? Will investigate further though.

It won't come up in the Britax site as they don't offer it for sale in the UK, only the safety center is allowed to sell it!

Britax first Class?

Man alive, thought it was complicated before finding out about ones I can only buy from safety centres! Thanks though, this is really helpful and will investigate the britax ones.

You can only buy it in the Milton Keynes in car safety centre, but you will be able to get it online and youtube have loads of fantastic vids for fitting correctly :)

Just in case anyone else ever does a search for the same thing and comes to this thread... None of the Britax ones would fit without the front seat being too far foward to fit anyone in. But instead we have a rear-facing Fair G0/1 on an isofix that fits the Fiat 500 really well and will see DD through now for years, hurray. So it can be done!
