DD has a Duo Plus in her grandparents car and had one in my old car - she was in it when we were hit from behind and the car was written off (she walked away with a bitten lip/tongue). She's got the new britax trifix in my new car.
The new Britax Trifix is probably the best forward facing car seat currently. Its new so not many reviews around, its expensive, RRP £319, but its good.
As i car seat fitter I love the duo plus, easy to fit and great. Usually get it for a decent price RRP £219 but with a good search £150 should be found.
thisis All the rear facing ones use props (as far as I can make out) which I can't use in my car due to under floor storage compartments. That's why I need one with a tether. I also have to fit 3 seats in the back of the car so not much room for a bulky seat.
i always do this, think of more stuff to write and end up posting 5 million separate posts...
i've found it easier to fit 3 across the back with the ERF seats, because you end up with a gap at the back of the actual car seat which makes it easier to fit a forward facing seat next to it. if that makes sense.
i have some pics on my profile of my lot in the back of the car
I have a recaro polaric and that has tethers and it doesn't have a prop. It fits behind the passenger seat and I can get 2 kiddy pro's in the other 2 seats woithout their being any trouble with room or seatbelt fitting. I used to be able to fit a 0 stage at one side the recaro at the other and an adult or kiddy pro in the middle. I do have a Kia Sedona so might be blessed with more space than a citreon
There is only one version and it most definitely has a foot prop. You must have yours tucked underneath, but if you have a storage box you can't use it anyway. I would recommend a twe anyway. Much better recline than the polaric and will fit in your car no problem!
