    Chicco Nextfit vs Diono Radian RXT vs Clek Foonf

    I am hesitating between these 3 seats.. I have read a lot about each individual ones and love them all, so I guess the tie breaker will be how they fit in my car since I think they will all be suitable to ERF my daughter (She is 8 months, 21lbs, 29"). Does anyone have pictures of any of these seats installed in a Lexus RX? All toughts and comments that could help me with my decision are more than welcome!

    I have two Radians and a Lexus Rx400h and they install beautifully both rear and forward facing. I have them rear facing and just love them! I had a Britax Marathon before and I also loved it but when I put it rear facing behind the passenger I couldn't see out the passenger window AT ALL because the seat was so big and up high on a base. Don't get me wrong the Radian still blocks some of my view but not nearly as much as the Marathon. I think you will have problems with the Nextfit and Foonf blocking your view since they are both bigger seats and on bases. I do love the Nextfit but I love how the Radian fits in my car! I do use angle adjusters with both of mine and the front seats can be put almost all the way back without touching the Radian even though they can if need be. I can take some pictures tomorrow if you want.

    I just grabbed a couple pictures sorry they are not that clear the lighting was super bad. I don't use one installed in the middle because it doesn't work for my 3 across but you can definitely do it. The "hump" in the middle isn't that big so the Radian fits on it just fine but I wouldn't use an angle adjuster with it in the middle because it does block my view in the rear view mirror. With it outboard it doesn't block my view at all.

    I have seen some pics of the Chicco Keyfit in an RX350 behind the passenger seat. From the looks of it even with the rear seat back the passenger seat needed to be moved up a bit to accommodate it. Not sure how the Keyfit compares to the NextFit.

    Try contacting the folks at Clek for a photo of the Foonf in your car. I called them and a wonderfully helpful person emailed some photos of the Foonf in the same model vehicle I drive. Hope they can help you!
