What would you buy?

I have a 56 pound, 47 inch tall 3-almost 4 year old. I drive a 2006 Cobalt with an infant seat on the passenger and ODD seat on the driver. She is about to hit max on her current seat so I need a bigger seat that harnesses. I was thinking about the Radian R120, but haven't bought carseats in a while, so I need input.

I would get a Frontier. Frontier harnesses to 85 pounds, and makes a nice tall booster too. It is wider, and has more butt room than a Radian.

The Radian makes a crappy booster that is outgrown about the time the harness is outgrown, and it does not fit many kids well--the belt rides up on the tummy.

I just bought a Frontier for my son who is almost 5. He is in a Radian now, but I will be switching my youngest to that seat

Frontier. I own 3and would own more if they fit but had to get a radian for everything to fit. Frontier is the last you'll need.
