Able to safely seat babies as small as 5 pounds and up to 65 pounds, the Nuna Rava convertible car seat keeps your child secure in the car during each stage of their growth. Thanks to its extra leg room and extended rear-facing usage capabilities, the Nuna Rava lets your child sit in the safer rear-facing orientation until they reach 50 pounds. Already hit the 50 pound benchmark? Celebrate by switching your car seat to the forward-facing orientation, which is appropriate for children who are between 25 and 65 pounds.
In addition to its excellent seating capabilities, the Nuna Rava also has a ton of other awesome features. The Rava installs into your car via a Simply Secure Installation seat belt path. This allows the car seat to fit into more seating positions than car seats that install via LATCH. This easy-to-install car seat also features a 10-position, height-adjustable headrest, no-rethread harnesses, and flame retardant chemical-free textiles. Plus, keep your kiddo even safer than usual with the Rava’s advanced side impact protection system! Other safety features include an all-steel frame and energy absorbing foam construction.
With a steel rod frame, interior and exterior foam-padded side impact protection, an anti-rebound bar, and an energy-absorbing headrest, the Clek Foonf is one of the safest convertible car seats on the market! The Clek Foonf’s REACT safety system utilizes crumple technology to absorb energy during any sort of impact, keeping your baby secure no matter the circumstances. The Clek Foonf is safe to use in the rear-facing position with children between 14 pounds and 50 pounds, and in the forward-facing position between 20 pounds and 65 pounds. If you want to use the Clek Foonf with a newborn between 5 and 22 pounds, you can purchase an Infant-Thingy Insert for use with the Clek Foonf.
Beyond its safety features, the Clek Foonf is also incredibly comfortable. The Foonf’s C Zero+ fire retardant-chemical free performance fabrics make the seat impermeable to spills and microbes. Plus, the Foonf can recline for the perfect car napping experience!
Need one last reason to check out the Clek Foonf? Here’s the tipping point: the Foonf is narrow enough that you can fit three car seats across the back seat. Perfect for families with multiple children!
Almost identical to the Clek Foonf, the Clek Fllo is just a little more compact than its sister seat, 10 pounds lighter and perfect for smaller cars. The safety features of the Clek Fllo are up to par to the Clek Foonf’s. Plus, Fllo can even be installed via seatbelt or via LATCH installation!
DIONO RADIAN 3RXT
Clocking in at 17 inches across, the Diono Radian 3RXT convertible car seat is compact both in size and in its ability to fold down–you heard me right, the 3RXT can fold down! Don’t worry, though: the 3RXT’s easy-to-store design doesn’t mean that this car seat scrimps on safety. In fact, the Diono 3RXT features a anti-rotation rear-facing tether, advanced side impact protection complete with energy-absorbing foam, and a Safe Stop harness that absorbs energy during any sort of impact. Paired with its SuperLATCH installation capabilities, the Diono 3RXT is truly top of the line when it comes to safety.
Safety aside, the Diono 3RXT is also super adaptable when it comes to seating your child. Able to accommodate children up to 65 pounds in the forward-facing position and up to 120 pounds in the booster mode, the Diono 3RXT can be used to seat your tot for years! In our book, that more than makes up for the seat’s slightly heavier-than-usual weight.
When it comes to the Britax Advocate convertible car seat, we’ve got three words for you: machine washable fabric!
Of course, the Britax Advocate has more design features than just its machine washable textiles. The Advocate is exceptionally safe, with a SafeCell Impact Protection system and rotation-minimizing tether that’ll provide your baby (and the car seat’s sturdy steel frame) with amazing protection from impact forces. Plus, the Advocate’s ClickTight Installation system is super easy to use, allowing you to use your car’s seat belt to secure the car seat. Other cool features include a 14-position harness, 7-position recline capabilities, and both forward (for kids 20-65 pounds) and rear-facing (for kids 5-40 pounds) seating options!
PEG PEREGO PRIMO VIAGGIO AGIO KINETIC
Crafted in Italy out of only the highest-quality materials, the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Agio Kinetic convertible car seat can accommodate children between 5 and 45 pounds in the rear-facing position and between 22 and 65 pounds in the forward-facing position. This convertible car seat’s sophisticated leatherette finishing hides a state-of-the-art car seat security system. Safety features include an anti-rebound bar, impact-absorbing seat construction, and side-impact kinetic pods that’ll keep your tot secure in all circumstances.
When it comes to comfort, the Peg Perego Primo Viaggio Agio Kinetic convertible car seat can’t be beat. A tri-stage cushion system supports your baby’s neck and bottom. The cushion system can be adjusted to accommodate your child’s growth through the years! Plus, there’s a built-in cup holder!
Though it’s not yet available to the general public, the UPPAbaby Knox definitely has a spot on our best-of list. Installed via your car’s seat belt (an easy process, thanks to the Knox’s clever installation indicator), the UPPAbaby Knox has side impact protection pods, an EPP foam interior for reduced crash impact, and a memory foam headrest for maximum comfort. Keep an eye out for this amazing car seat!
