    I am wondering which convertible car seat to get. I am mainly looking at the Britax Marathon or the Diono Radian. However I drive a Hyundai Elantra..which would be better overall ,and considering the fit of the seat in this car.

    Hi & welcome!

    How old is the child you need the seat for? Do you know their current weight & height?

    Do you have other children in car seats using this vehicle also?

    We can help you find the right car seat once we know a little more information

    Hi Keeks64,

    Yes, I guess more info would be helpful

    My son is 4 months (going on 18 weeks). He is not yet ready for the convertible seat yet, but I presume he will be within the next 3-4 weeks.

    He currently weighs 18lbs and is 27" long. A big boy !!
    There aren't any other children in car seats in this vehicle.
    We do plan on having a second child, in another 2 years or so.

    Thanks again for your help!
