    Will an Evenflo Triumph 65 fit in my 02 Honda Civic?

    My daughter is currently in a Graco Snugride rearfacing in the middle seat but she's 2 pounds away from outgrowing it so we want to get a new car seat. I want to get the Evenflo Triumph 65 because there is a really good sale on it but it looks really big and I don't know if it will in my car. I would like it to be rearfacing in the middle but it can go behind me (driver's side) if it has to. I am only 5'1" so I'm thinking it would probably fit but I'm not sure. Would an Evenflo Triumph 65 fit in my 02 Honda Civic?

    I haven't tried it in a civic, but we have the seat. It's a very wide seat, but generally takes up little room front to back. It installs fairly upright, which is good for smaller spaces. I'd bet it would fit, especially in the middle. I think I heard someone say they have it in a corolla... so that's probably a similar size.

    I have my 4 month old in a Triumph65. I have it reclined a little more, since she is still quite little. It takes up the same amount of space front to back as her keyfit did. I would think it could fit in a Civic. It would be one of my first choices for a tight space.

    Width wise, it's a monster of a seat, but front to back it installs pretty upright. In our Prius DS was RF in it behind the driver's seat with no problem, w/o touching the front seats.

    Fitting DS +dd and one of her friends (ages 10+, all out of boosters) in the back was tricky because of the width of the seat, but unless that sort of thing is a common occurrence for you, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I have had as many as 3 of these seats (a long story involving 2 cars on the east coast, one on the west, and a cross-country move) and love love love them.
