I think I may have completely talked around an answer.

Anyhow, to your specific issue, I really doubt there will be that much room with a forward facing. I have the Britax Marathon which is a pretty good sized seat and in the forward facing orientation, I really needed to have the front seat folded down to give her any leg room.

I do not know how big the seat is you are looking at, but maybe with the name of my seat you can look it up and compare sizes.

Good luck!

I have plenty of time to test it out at the dealer myself and if worse comes to worse I can always buy smaller seats to replace them. I'd like to avoid the latter though because they are really nice seats and they weren't cheap if you know what I mean.

Thanks for the help so far. I still have one more seat to buy and we were going to buy something similar to those we have already. If someone can show me that they don't fit well and recommend something that does I'm all for it.
