Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Car seat and small car

I have a Saturn Ion and it's time to up DD to a convertable car seat.  I'm looking at 2 of them that both have good Consumer Report Ratings.

1. Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite

2. Evenflo Triumph Advanced LX/DX

Does anyone have any opinions or thoughts on either of these?  Have you tried either of them in a small car?

    no experience with either of those but wanted to say that if you're planning to have more than one in the back seat, go with the SK radian.  My friend has a honda civic (one of the smallest back seats for a mid-size car) and they are the only seat that fits 3 across in her car.

    I have no experience but we bought the Combi Coccuro for our 2 door civic and it fits really well.
