Shallow Child's Car Seats?

I'm 6 foot something and just had my 2nd kid. I have a rear facing infants car seat that i'm stuck with and will live behind the passenger seat. By their nature, they are pretty deep front to back. I couldn't comfortably drive with that seat behind me.

I also have a 2 year old in a front facing seat that seems to be deeper than it needs to be. It also makes driving uncomfortable when set up behind the driver's seat.

Can anyone recommend a front-facing child's car seat that is particularly shallow in depth?

thanks. That seat keeps coming up in my googling. Happy with them? How tall are you and do you feel like you have enough leg room?

great thanks. The other car we drive is a RX350 which also has a weirdly shallow backseat. Itís either that or all the car seats I have are massive.

thanks for the reccomendation

The Diono Radian worked great, thanks.

I'm not sure I could take it on a long drive. My kid can't recline much so she can't fall asleep easily, but on daily short commutes, it's working out great. Thanks
