Question What is the total depth of the Radian 65/80?


Mama of twins

I'm trying to figure out if two or three Radian 65 or 80s would fit in the back of my 2003 Pontiac Grand Am while rear-facing...

I currently have 16m old b/g twins who I want to rf as long as possible, but my DH has started to whine about the lack of leg room that it creates for him...

Does anyone know the depth of the Radians from the foot rest (edge of the seat) to the back of the head rest (edge of the seat)? The measurement would need to be taken in the air (above the foot rest, in line with the head rest) measuring from the foot rest to the head rest.... Does that make any sense? I'm just trying to figure out if these seats would give my DH more leg room.

I also want to be able to put three car seats in the back of my car, and I have been told that these should be able to do that.

Help please!

Thanks in advance!

The Radians are about as big front to back as seats come. If you need something with longevity and can go upright I'd look at the Safety 1st Complete Air, the Learning Curve True Fit, the Evenflo Triumph Advance.
