Hi Gurus - I need some advice please original.gif

We had a SNS Capsule for #1 (6 years ago) and found it only fit in our Mazda 3 (06 model) in the centre.  It didn't fit well at all and touched/rested on the tops of the front seats.  FF no problems.

Fast forward to TTC#2 and we're wondering if there are any shallower capsules on the market that don't take up as much room as we'll have a booster for DD#1 and only the room behind the passenger seat for #2.

*grins* Maybe I should be looking at a new car wink.gif

We've got a Chicco keyfit capsule in our Mazda 3 (06 too I believe). I'm always in the passenger seat and there's room for me at 172cm tall without the seat touching the capsule behind.

We have an 09 Mazda 3 and we are buying a new car when we need a new baby rearfacing. It's a pain in the bum.

Babylove Snap n Go is one of the most compact and allowed our front seat back further than any other capsules I tried. It also has a pram that it goes on, super convenient. I hired the system and I love it.

I think it's he NRMA site that has measurements for leg room for the front seat passenger when a seat or capsule is behind.

We had a Mazda 6 and my husband, Dad or brother couldn't sit in the front seat without their knees touching the glovebox.
