    Default Baby seat for 0-4 recommendations

    As the title suggests, we need a baby seat. We used to have a capsule but hated that, so now we are looking for a convertible baby seat, and preferably a slim/narrow one because we have a booster chair and toddler seat already and we drive a cx5.

    Thanks in advance.

    we have the maxi cosi euro nxt in the back of a Volvo XC60. wanted a safe n sound originally but it was too big and caused the passenger seat to have to be really far forward. the maxi cosi is a good fit, leaves lots of room across the rest of the back seat for 2 adults comfortably.

    The britax safe and sound compact is meant to be one of the narrowest on the market.
    I don't have one though so no first hand experience.

    They must all fit differently in different cars. I've got the euro and a SnS platinum pro and they take up the same amount of room in my A45. The SnS is wider across but the seat in front ends up with the same room.

    The infa secure Quattro is the smallest seat on the market now, for depth while rear facing so good if you need room for whoever is sittings in front of it. Also has excellent markers for rear facing too.

    The infasecure grandeur is a larger seat but will enable extended rear facing and extended harnessing (until 8-10 years).

    Personally I've got Bub in Ts old seat, (an infasecure kompressor) and moved him to a maxi guard.

    In your case I would get the Quattro 👌🏻

    I had the britax compaq 0-4 (comes in 2 versions the MKII and AHR version) it is one of the narrowest on the market and should work well for you. I've just replaced it with the millennia which is an awesome seat but bigger (not sure how much bigger sorry). The compaq is now extended rear facing too if that's important to you

    The slimline and compaq are smaller in terms of depth rear facing. The quattro is the narrowest though.

    I have a compaq RF, sns maxi rider and sns hi liner across my back seat captiva 7
    I love the Compaq as its narrow enough and allows the front passenger an appropriate amount of room
