Marathon and Blvd height same???

Just wanted to make sure the Marathon and Blvd. are the same size right? My friend wants to make sure they both fit rfing in her car before she picks which one she wants. And she was a 06 Corolla, will they both fit in there in the middle? Does anyone have a pic of it?

Re: Marathon and Blvd height same???

They are both identical shells. I can't imagine they wouldn't fit rearfacing in the center.

That is what I though but she was worried so I thought I would ask to make sure.

Re: Marathon and Blvd height same???

The shells are identical, but if the child is tall, the BV headrest raises above the shell by several inches, so it can potentially be a taller seat than the MA.

Re: Marathon and Blvd height same???

Are you sure they are the same shells? My kids (18 mo & 4 years) can't fit in the MA because it is narrower at the top near the shoulders. They fit in the BLVD just fine. So, we bought a BLVD. They may be the same height, but I don't think they are the same. I thought the MA and the Decathalon were the same shells?

None of them are the same shells. They are similar, but not the same.
