    Fit? Radian in a Mazda3. RF

    SPB, you'd probably know. I'm just curious. DH will be looking to buy a new (used) car in about a year and I'm starting to do some research.


    Any suggestions on for other cars? Looking for:
    Fits 2 adults, 2 kids (1 RF, 1 FF) in carseats
    MPG
    Price (cheaper the better)
    Mostly used for commuting to work
    Size doesn't really matter if it's a good value

    Re: Fit? Radian in a Mazda3. RF

    If no one is sitting in the front passenger seat, then the Radian fits with no problems.

    Seriously though, a RFing Radian can go in the middle position and fits between the front seats okay.

    It's totally *made* for this car when FFing.

    Here's a link to some pics I posted of the Radian in the Mazda Speed3...

    I don't know if you have other options for RFing... but our preferred method was RFing MA and FFing Radian in our car.

    Found the post that shows it RFing in an '03 Protege...

    Thank you for your reply. I was only curious. I'd probably use the Marathon rear-facing and the Radian FF(if I even get one). But, It's nice to know just in case.
