You can go to your BRU and they will allow you to see if they fit in your car, before purchasing. But it doesn't sound like any are going to fit. You might try to see if the booster will fit there or look for a van. lol
We need to fit 6 car seats plus have room for 4 more kids in our 12 passenger. With the Britax car seats that we had, that was just not going to happen. Mainly, I needed to fit 2 car seats and 2 kids across the 4 passenger bench in the back. I looked around and found the Sunshine Radiance 65 which is only 17" wide. I just got them on Monday and was able to fit those two plus have plenty of room for two of the bigger kids.
I know you are looking for an infant car seat. We went through the same problem when we had the Suburban as our family car. To get to the back seat, you had to fold the passenger side of the middle row down and the infant seat we had was just too wide to let that happen.
It sounds like you are working with even less room but, if it helps, we got the Graco Snug-n-Ride (I *think* that is what it's called) because it was the narrowest one that we could find. That was over 5 years ago, though, so maybe there is something different.
If not, maybe you could look at the Radiance 65s to give you more room. They also have 80s that hold up to 80 pounds (they are 5 point harnesses). I have my 5 year old in one and she can get in and out by herself but our 3 year old can't.
