Car seat gurus - suggest me a seat

DS is about to turn 4, has hit just 18kg and last height measurement was about 103cm. Currently in the Meridian he has been in since birth and still has plenty of height adjustment left. How long should I keep him in this seat? I'd like to be able to keep him in a 5pt as long as possible. DH, my mum and MIL all have Cargo Marathons in their cars and I think his straps are still only on the 2nd slots.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks ladies.

New Cargo Marathons have lower markers showing turn to booster.
New Maxi Rider has high top markers. There is the rumour that the inbuilt 5pt harness is tested to 32kgs rather then 22kgs (22kgs required under standard, 32kgs would be in house testing),
Try your son out in a few seats. His current Meridian you can use to 2.5cm above top shoulder slot (ignoring the 18kgs as tested to 22kgs).

Great, thanks IsolaBella! I thought that the Meridian was tested to 22kg, so at least I can comfortably keep him in that for the time being.
I will have a look and try him in a few different seats.

Maybe the mum I saw in that waiting room, seemingly disconnected from her baby, doesn’t have the support she needs.
