Radian is 14" across the seat, 17" at the widest part of the back. Regent is 21.5".

BTW, the Radian80 won't get kids anywhere near 80 lbs because the top slots aren't high enough. Sunshine Kids left them the same height as the Radian65 and most kids don't even make it to 65 lbs in that seat before they outgrow it height wise. Sunshine Kids is saying that you can use it when the kids shoulders are above the top slots, but lots of techs aren't in agreement with that because having the straps below the shoulders (when forward facing) can cause spinal compression in an accident. So, I personally don't even consider the Radian80 as a choice, for my kids anyway, because it wouldn't get us any more use than the 65 and it's so much more expensive.

I didn't see what the harness weight limit was.

That's good to know, I had no idea. That was the seat I was considering before I saw the Signo. The Radian definitely would not work then. DD is in the 90th percentile for height and I know she will outgrow carseats in height way before weight. Thanks for the info!

Here's a link that shows a comparison of the Recaro Young Sport, Como and Signo. The harnessed weight limits on the Como and Signo is 70lbs.
