    Infant Seat for 2003 Honda Civic Coupe


    My husband and I are both tall (he's 6'4" and I'm 5'10") and we mostly drive my Honda Civic coupe. When he's driving, the driver's seat will need to be pushed back pretty far. I can have the passenger seat closer to the dash. Is there an infant seat that would fit in the back given these parameters?

    Your help is appreciated!

    The Cybex Aton, Britax B Safe 35/35 Elite, and Chicco Keyfit are pretty compact.

    The seats Wendy mentioned are good. Just remember not to use latch in the middle of the back seat unless your vehicle allows latch sharing. Congrats on the upcoming arrival of your new baby!!

    I would put in a vote for the Keyfit 30. My husband and I are the same as far as height goes and our primary vehicle at the time our son was born was our Kia Spectra.

    We were able to install the Keyfit in the center using the lock-off on the base and kept our front seats mostly where they were. With out second, the Keyfit is behind the passenger seat and my husband who is 6'3" can actually fit comfortably in the seat there (though a little closer to the dash).
