Any other narrow seats?

My girls have spent a lot of time in Radians and my niece now rides in them in most vehicles. I have a Truefit for my niece in my van, but it expires next month. We need to buy something new for her. I do have kids 3 across in my van, so the narrow shape of the Radians appeals. But before we buy, I am wondering if there is anything else I should consider....

Things we love about the Raidan and would want in the new seat:
- narrow seat for easier 3 across
- will allow extended rear facing (hopefully until at least 4 years or 40 pounds).

Things I would want to see improved in a different seat:
- something lighter than the Radian though as her seat in my car is frequently installed and uninstalled.
- easier install than the radian
- easier to adjust belt lengths. Our Britax seats are so much easier to adjust belts than the radians.

Thank you!

What other seats do you want to install next to it? In which vehicles?

Things I would consider, depending on specifics:

Scenera NEXT: narrow, cheap, super easy to use. Outgrown at 40 pounds, 40 inches, or top of head even with top of shell.
Evenflo Sureride: wider, but sits up on a narrow base, so it may puzzle well. Takes up more front to back space. Very tall top harness slots, so works as a FF seat until booster readiness for most kids.
Graco MyRide: Similar to the Sureride in shape. May work in some situations where the Sureride doesn't (and vice versa)
Graco MySize/Size4Me/Fit4Me/Contender: Really gets kids to 40 pounds, fairly narrow.

Currently it is between a Britax Frontier and a Radian. The True Fit is a tight squeeze there. I will be getting another niece or nephew this summer, so seating configurations in my van will change then.

Would all of these likely get a tallish, very thin child to about 4 years rear facing?
