And the Winner Is: Cybex Sirona S 360 Convertible Car Seat

Parents of toddlers know that if you want to elevate your heart rate and get your sweat on, nothing does the trick like trying to get your kiddo into their car seat. Even in those (rare) moments when they’re not tantruming or flailing about, angling your body to get your little one properly strapped in is a lesson in contortion. That’s why we were so thrilled when the Cybex Sirona S hit the market last year. It’s the first-ever convertible car seat in the US to feature a 360-degree rotating car seat with load leg technology. Now, instead of twisting your body, you simply twist the car seat to face you. Genius! We’re still swooning over this convertible car seat, earning it a Best of Baby award for the second year.

What We Love

• Thanks to the car seat’s innovative rotation, you can stand in front of your car door and swivel the seat to face you with a single hand, strap your child in, and then swivel it back

• Ease-of-use is the name of the game here: There are 12 recline positions that can be adjusted while in use, 12 height positions you can achieve with one hand, a no-rethread harness, a cup holder and magnetic buckle holders to keep the straps out of your way as you secure your child

• You get ultimate convenience without sacrificing safety, thanks to the load leg, anti-rebound panel, linear side impact protection and SensorSafe chest clip, which alerts you to a number of unsafe situations (like if you happen to forget baby in the back of the car!)

• Installation is quick and easy, thanks to the angle indicators and EasyLock bar, which cuts down on how hard you need to pull the straps to get it nice and tight; plus, it’s the only convertible car seat in North America that you can install just once and then use for either rear- and forward-facing modes
