Try Safety 1st Air. Very narrow. Can fit three across forwarding facing in some cars. Personally, I think they are very hard to install though especially backward facing. I saw that a few safety first models were recalled so might want to double check. 

I'm not sure how you define small.  For reference, we have an old Toyota Corolla which is relatively narrow by today's standards.  I like our Britax Essentials seat.  We use it alongside a Chicco KetFitNext which I would probably not buy again because it is huge (even though I loved the KeyFit30 infant seat).  

For the nanny's car we have a Cosco seat (a brand...not Costco the wholesale store). It is narrow and lightweight making it easy to carry around an airport when flying (not that we're doing much of it these days...)

If your main concern is not losing front seat legroom (which was my concern), I’m really happy with the Nuna Rava after doing a lot of research into something safe that wouldn’t be a legroom hog.

We loved the Diono Radian. Super pricey but WORTH it. I might even have an extra one to sell... Since our two littles are FINALLY OUT of CAR SEATS!!! Hallelujah!!!

(I need to check our pile of stuff-to-sell that we have stored in our garage... So much kid stuff! Contact me if you need one.)


Clek fllo is very narrow and comfortable. Clek foonf is the higher price model and should have the same footprint.
