seat for my tall toddler

Back here with a carseat qn.

We have a britax marathon for one car for our toddler who is 17 months and is very tall. She is now 34.5 inches tall and weigh 27 lbs. We have been very happy with the marathon and she loves the seat.

Our other car seat- graco safe seat is now too snug and small for her. So we are looking for a new car seat for the second car- which will not be used all that much. This will be for second car that is very rarely used- at least as of now.

We are inclined to go with marathon again. are there any suggestions?If we get another marathon,  she would out grow both carseats at the same time. Any suggestions for a next step up or something that will go a bit longer than marathon. She may be too small for booster or anything similar at this time.

She is still rear facing in the marathon.

Any suggestions would be welcome. We are trying to buy soon. So if anyone knows of any sale or discounts that would be very useful too.

A booster seat will not go rfing so you will need to buy a convertible or a 3in1 car seat.
