We're expecting babe number 3 in August, and are in a bit of a pickle.....I currently drive a Toyota Aurion and DP drives a Mitsubishi Triton, for work. At the moment we have a Mothers Choice Havana car seat (up to 18kg), which seats our 2yo DS who weighs 15kg and an Infa Secure Voyager (up to 26kg, with adjustable headrest, we use a H harness too) which holds our 4yo DS who weighs 22kg. On the weekend, i tried fitting both seats, and our Hi Pod Delta capsule (it goes up to 12 kg rear facing, which is why we brought it), and it's a very tight squeeze. So tight, in fact, that DS1's booster sits on an angle and the seatbelt clips are almost inaccessible .
The booster we have is adjustable, and is as high as it goes, DS1's shoulders sit against it. The whole top part comes apart from the base, and the base can be used as a base booster with a H harness or the seatbelt (we'd go with the harness though). The car seat we're using for DS1, his shoulders are getting close to being too high above the straps too, so we're in the market for a booster with a 5 point harness for him. The most slim one we've found is the Safe n Sound Hi Liner SG, with a 5 point harness, which is actually a few cms wider than the current booster, but our current booster doesn't come with a 5 point harness which is why we aren't getting another one of them.
So what i'm asking is, does anyone know of a booster seat that is slimmer than the Safe n Sound Hi Liner SG? Preferably with the 5 point harness? We'd really like to avoid getting a larger car at this stage, but obviously if we can't figure out a way to fit the seats all in safely we will have to.....

Haven't seen them IRL, but a Love m Care Star booster is apparently narrower, but doesn't have the harness.
