As I climbed into the car with Tabitha I realised there was no car seat and asked the driver if he had one we could use.
To my surprise the driver lent over and flipped the back panel of one of the back seats down and suddenly there we had a car seat. The panel created the lower base at a raised level and the harness was built into the back of the seat ready to go.

The answer perhaps lays here in this video of the great Steve Levitt of Freakonomics fame and the relationship between car manufacturers and car seat makers.
