I need to get 3 across in an 02 honda civic (4 door). I need 2 RF seats for a 28#, 34in, 13in torso, 22 month old, a NB (not sure on size yet) my biggest baby was just shy of 8lbs. Also a booster (HBB if possible) for a 54#, 44in, 7 yr old. I want to make sure that the seats will last as long as possible (FR as close to 4+ as possible), but at a decent price. We just had to get all new seats for my car, and I prefer not to switch back and forth from car to car.

ETA: Would like to keep the seats on the lower end of price range *if* possible. Only bc we will have to have bought 6 new seats total o.O

I would get two radians and a harmony backless booster for the oldest. Civics are small, I would bet the shoulder belt would fit well with the belt guide on a high back booster. Harmony boosters are notoriously narrow and you'll need narrow for a booster next to a harnessed seat.

It's totally doable though!

Would there be another option besides the radians? I have them in my car, but didn't want to spend that much on 2 more of them if there is another seat that could work. I am thinking maybe not.

Re: 3 across in a Honda Civic.....can it be done???

Cosco scerenas are narrow and puzzle well with radians so you could try throwing one of them into the mix.

Two scenaras and a bubble bum if harmony is too wide. Cheap and narrow.

I am not sure how much longer a scerena would last for my 22 month old. He is already 34 in and the max height for RF is 36 in.
