    Do Frontier85s fit in a Honda Fit?

    I really want a car with a trunk, but a doctor I work with has just about sold me on a Honda Fit. She got hers about 6 months ago and other than the trunk it does meet all my wants and needs.

    I was just looking at interior pics of the back seat and I am not sure about those head rests. Our current seats are Frontier85s, harnessed for DD2 and in booster mode for DD1. Do the head rests really stick out as far as it looks like they do and do they get in the way of car seat installs?

    Also looking for opinions on the car itself if anyone has one and cares to share.
    Thanks!

    (oh not sure if there have been body changes but the one I am looking into is a 2011)

    I don't know about the Fit but a Frontier fits in my '11 Insight. If I remember correctly, the back seats are suppose to be similar.

    Re: Do Frontier85s fit in a Honda Fit?

    I can't think of a reason why the frontier 85s would not work in the fit. The headrests move up and down and I believe they also come out. My fit is a 2008 so the different body style but the center headrest in mine is like the outboard ones in the 2011 and I can pop the headrest out to install a seat. The fit's manual tells you to do that in my car but I've tried installing with the headrest in and all the way down and it went fine.
    The fit is pretty spacious as small cars go and the trunk is a good size. However I would not plan on having three across the back seat, especially with frontiers in there. We have a blvd70 and a parkway sg in ours and that takes up the entire backseat since the center position is so narrow.

    Great! In the pics I found online they looked like they were not adjustable or removable. We don't plan to do a 3 across with the Frontiers in anything, but now you have me wondering if it is possible somewhere...
