Best Convertible Car Seat: Maxi-Cosi Pria 70

Praised equally for its safety and comfort, the Pria is one car seat we’d like to climb right in ourselves.

A convertible car seat means more bang for your buck, lasting from infancy to toddlerhood. So you’ll definitely want to pick the right one. Considerations: What’s the spectrum of weight and size it can accommodate? Does it have any safety features that set it apart? Since it’ll get so much use, how easy is it to clean? The Pria 70 is that carefully considered car seat. And it has a lot going for it.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • Suitable from 9 to 70 pounds, it can (in most cases) be used very soon after birth
  • Self-wicking fabric not enough for you? The seat pad and harness cover snap off the frame and can be tossed in both the washer and dryer
  • Maxi-Cosi’s signature Air Protect technology means more protection for your child’s head against side-impact collisions

SUMMARY

Good for years of use, the Pria will feel like part of the car. Good thing it comes in so many colors—nine!

Price: $250
