    small car to accomodate rear-facing center installation

    I am expecting a baby any day now and currently have a Cybex Aton 2. My car is a FIAT 500, but I've swapped with a friend so I temporarily have it installed in a Honda Fit, where it fits just fine in the center (without impacting the front seats). When the baby outgrows the Cybex, I'm hoping to get a Clek Fllo and keep him rear-facing as long as possible. I'm on the market for a new car and would like something that would allow the Fllo to be installed in the center seat, with the rebound bar, and still allow for a reasonable position for the front seats. Does anyone know whether any of the following would allow for that?
    Mazda 3 (hatchback or sedan)
    Mazda CX3
    Prius
    Prius V
    Fiat 500X
    Volvo V60 (a bit out of my price range)
    Thank you!

    I have not put the Fllo in any of those vehicles, but it did not fit in our Chevy HHR (based on Cobalt) anywhere. My husband and I are 5'7" and 5'8".

    Is there a reason you specifically want the Fllo? There are car seats that take up less space and rear face longer with a cheaper price tag.
