Secondary seat suggestion--in mazdaspeed3

So we have our 1st seat figured out for our van. Now we need one for a "back up" for the "just in case situation" that my husband takes our son with him--or I'm out with the van and they want/need to go somewhere. It hasn't happened yet but now that he's getting older it MIGHT happen in his vehicle. Son is 21 mo about 35" and 23lb he has a 13" seated torso; I think bum to top of head was 21" or close to it.

Suggestions for a seat for a 2008 mazdaspeed3? Definitely would like to keep the price under $100 as this seat just might sit in our house for most of it's life :-/
