    Convertible car seat for Subaru impreza

    Please help. Looking for a convertible car seat for 2015 hatchback Subaru Impreza. 12 month old, 21 pounds, no other backseat drivers. Want to keep him rear facing as long as possible and looking for something that will last as he grows. Thank you so much!

    Re: Convertible car seat for Subaru impreza

    We have the very same car, and used a Britax Marathon (ours was an older style, but newer Clicktight ones would work even better). That was great both rear- and forward-facing, with room (albeit not much of it!) for backseat riders. I expect that a Chicco NextFit would work well too. The main thing you want is a seat that's relatively compact front-to-back so that you can put the seats back. The downside to those two is that if you plan to have more children and might eventually need three across, you would likely need narrower seats to make it work. But I'd cross that bridge when you get to it!

    I had a NextFit in a 2010 Legacy, and it was quite compact. I found the Graco 4Ever and Britax Boulevard (comparable to the new Essentials by Britax Emblem) pretty compact in our 2017 Corolla.
