At 49.9 inches, the 2014 Cherokee has significantly less rear hip room than the Impala. That's no surprise. What is surprising is we were able to fit the three Dionos into the Cherokee's backseat. It was a tight squeeze, but they all fit. We used a combination of seat belts and Latch systems to get all three seats installed. We might have had even better luck had we had three of the 17-inch-wide Radian car seats.
This car seat has a steel alloy frame, reinforced sidewalls, an adjustable head support, and a five point harness for safely restraining your little one. If you have multiple children in car seats/boosters you will be happy to know that you can fit THREE Radian car seats across in most cars! How incredible is that? The Radian RXT has also been NCAP tested and has some impressive results. Click here to read more about the detailed safety testing and results. You won’t be disappointed! It also folds flat for storage and travel – how convenient!
Besides the slight difference in width, the Olympia, Rainier and Pacifica convertibles have deeper sidewalls for better side-impact crash protection and higher weight limits for rear- and forward-facing positions, Pinkerton said. These seats also have a longer expiration date of 12 years from the date of manufacture, which Pinkerton says is a car-seat industry first. The Radian car seats have a 10-year expiration date.
The seat does feel incredibly comfy for little ones and it’s safety is a definite plus! It also have an infant head support and added body support that can be removed for bigger kids. The adjustable head support is very easy to adjust but does stay in place when you get it where you need it. I love, love, love this feature because an adjustable head support should be mandatory on all seats if you ask me. It can grow with our little ones for added safety no matter what age they are. I would highly recommend this car seat to anyone in the market for a new one and another great point? It’s the only one you will ever need so it is WELL worth the money you spend on it. Diono, who some of you may remember as Sunshine Kids, has created an incredible seat that has certainly passed my standards as a parent. I feel comfortable knowing that my little boy is safe and secure in his Diono Radian RXT car seat.
