Simple to use, Lightweight, fits well in smaller cars
January 17, 2014
We bought this seat to fit in a Scion tC and Lexus IS knowing they both have small backseats. The Aton 2 fits in the rear installed on the base with plenty of room for a passenger to sit in the front seat, and the simple system for using the seat without the base in any vehicle made in the last 25 years means you never have to worry about taxis, rides from neighbors, and best of all, use on aircraft. Install using LATCH is dead simple, and the guides are explicit so getting it in the car correctly is a piece of cake. I would highly recommend this seat and base to anyone with a small back seat who wants to leave room for a passenger in the front.
Pros:Works in almost any vehicle. LATCH connection for the base makes the install dead simple
Cons:Tightening the belts can be difficult because of the routing of the strap. Latches for the harness can rotate easily on the belts, so knowing to fold the belt over and slide the latch to put it right is important.
Best Uses:With the base installed. Too easy to get in and out without drama.
