If a britex new gen fits well in our car, will a classic?

I have a chance to buy a classic at a great price from a trusted friend. But it is not local, so I can't try it out first. I KNOW a new gen MA70 fits well in our car, will a classic RA fit?

Yeah they're both the same size. They look a little different but they'll fit the same.

No, a classic convertible is shaped differently and fits differently. Is it a classic roundabout (40# FF weight limit) or a RA50? Do you have extra front-back space in your car when you use a MA70?

It's the ra50. And there is NO extra space with the ma70.

Sorry, I think you'd have a hard time making it work.

See, that's what I am afraid of . BRU doesn't sell the classics, how else can I try one in my car? Any other stores that let you do that no fuss?

Target has them but I don't know if they'll let you try it in your car. You could buy it, try it, and return it, but that's kind of a hassle. Are you on facebook? Post that you're looking for someone local to you that has a britax marathon, boulevard, or roundabout 50 that you can try in your car. If someone volunteers one just be sure it's one of the older ones (65# weight limit).
