I am trying to decide on a new seat for my 2 yo. She is 27.6 lbs and 36.75 in tall. I would like to stay under $150-175. Any feedback on these styles: Britax Roundabout G4.1, Graco Size4Me 65, Graco Contender or any other suggestions? Thanks!

-budget is $400 max.
-My one year old daughter will be using the seat. She is 28" tall and 19 lbs. now.
- We drive a Subaru Outback.
-We fly at least once a year on a cross country flight and will need to bring the carseat. I like the option for her to use it on the plane instead of checking it.
I am torn between the Diono Rainier/Radian or the Britax Marathon Click Tight.
Questions:
-Safety comparison.
-Is the side impact better for the Rainier? But then what did the Radian score better on the Insurance rating? That's confusing.
Thanks for your assistance. This decision is not easy!

I am having a hard time deciding between these two. My daughter hates the car seat and I am hoping once we transition, it will get better. They both have a lot of nice features but I'm wondering if anyone has had experience with both. Does your child prefer one over the other? Do you feel one is easier/safer than the other? Thank you
