Putting A Car Seat In A Sports Car

Posted by theboat On November 26, 2017 87 comments
I drive a Subaru BRZ. For anyone unfamiliar, this is a very small, 2-door sports car. Is it possible to use with a car seat?


Background

I previously wrote about getting an infant (rear-facing) seat into my car. The general summary was that it worked, but only for a couple of infant seats on the market and only if I didn't use the front passenger seat. Now, my son is a toddler whoe doesn't fit in that seat and needed a front-facing car seat. Luckily, this also makes life much easier...

Options

Some front-facing seats are gigantic, so I looked for the smallest one I could find that wasn't absurdly expensive. I settled on the Safety 1st - Guide 65 Sport Convertible Car Seat:

car seat in a sports car

The picture above is how it looks installed in the car. There are likely others that would have worked...I tried a couple that did not fit well but I've forgotten their names. Anyway...this one isn't expensive, it fits well, and it seems really nice so I would recommend it.

How does it fit?

The first thing to note is that Subaru BRZ's have hooks for car seat latches, and this car seat comes with latches, so that's nice. There are the normal ones at the base of the seat, and there's an additional top one. Here's the top one in my car with the latch connected:



The next thing to note is that we can use the front, passenger seat now. It's hard to convey how much space there is, especially since it's a small sports car so it's going to be small either way, but this is the best picture I could think of:


That is my wife in the front, passenger seat with the car seat behind her and plenty of space for my son's feet. You can see that there is plenty of room for her knees. Further...if you look really closely, you can see that the front, passenger seat is further back than the driver seat. For reference, that is the position I use for the driver seat and I am 5'9". 

Conclusion

Using it is pretty simple. With the rear-facing seat, I had to take it out of the car to put him in, take it out to take him out, etc. It was exhausting. With this seat, I can just buckle/unbuckle him with the seat in place. It fits really snugly in the car also. I would say that a car seat in the Subaru BRZ and, by extension, any sports car with a back seat is definitely doable.
