If your looking for a seat that rear faces longer than yes the Safe n Sound Meridian SICT or Platinum SICT ISOFIX. Just make sure the one you buy has 3 markers as stores are selling old stock and people are thinking they are getting an A4 seat at a bargain price but they are really only getting an A2 seat. It has fooled a lot of people. If you can hold off purchasing for a few months there may be a couple more A4 options as InfaSecure has one in the works and Safe n Sound are working on an A4 version of the Compaq AHR.
ETA: Please try any seat you are thinking of purchasing in your car in RF mode before buying. These seats are very large and may not fit comfortably in all cars. Most baby stores allow this.

Honestly, I don't remember if I saw 3 markers or 2. Probably 2 as I was putting side by side to check the marker. Also, might be the reason it is on sale at the moment for ~$500. We are leaning toward the kompressor caprice NOT because of the price tag but do like the solid shell with everything built in. Meridian relies on padding/air cushion to sustain the impact. Just different technology. Both with pros and cons. We have a small car so compact is another factor. Meridian is quite bulky. I hope CREP updates/gives some info about the new meridian SICT on their website soon.
As for warranty, meridian: 5 yrs on shell, 3 yrs on fabric (with crash exchange program). infa secure: 10 yrs on shell, 1 yr on fabric.

Britax were great on warranty. My 2011 meridian was faulty. It was ok at the start, but within a year the headrest kept falling down when you applied any pressure. No way would it hold up in a crash. This happened to nearly everyone I know. I took it back and they swapped it for a brand new one without any hassle in 2014.

If anybody buys a SnS seat make sure you register the warranty so if you need to use the crash exchange program you will be eligible.

We have both the a2 platinum sict (in my car so the daily) and the neon (in hubby's car as a backup).
I personally much prefer the platinum as it's much more padded. And the easy adjust headrest is great too.
Our DD turned 2 in May and has about 2cm left of rf. We are due for No. 2 in January so are considering buying the A4 platinum sict so DD can have that and get another 4cm rf (if we can fit it behind the drivers seat).
