    Glad we chose the Pria over the Britax, September 27, 2011

    This review is from: Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat, Total Black (Baby Product)

    The Pria70 is our second car seat for our son who is tall and heavy for his age group (22 pounds, 29 inches, 9 months). The Pria has been a complete success, and I’m so glad I waited until this one came out. I was interested in a previous M.C. model — the Priori — but kept reading comments on message boards about Prioris not being wonderful for large/tall children. The Pria has tons of extra room. I love the thickly padded seat, too. It is a substantial upgrade for us (we had a Graco Snugride 35 previously). The Maxi-Cosi fabric is smoother and wicks sweat away well. This was a selling point for me — we live in a hot, humid climate and I did not like the sweaty poly-lined Britaxes available right now with the faux-velvet linings. They seemed way too hot for where we live.

    Fit-to-car comments: the Pria70 fits our 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe with ample extra space. We have to move our front seats really far back because we’re tall adults, so rear-facing install space was a chief concern. The Pria fit much better than another seat we tried in the Hyundai (it was an Evenflo Symphony 65, which barely squished in, rear-facing).

    Other details that are very nice: sturdy clips that are easy enough for an adult to unfasten. Height is adjustable with the sliding headrest, no problems there. Cupholder — love that! and the LATCH system integrates well. It comes with clips that snap in easily (or you can use your seatbelt to secure the seat, altenatively).

    Finally — and this was an important factor for me, personally — Maxi Cosi seats generally rate cleaner on the toxic chemicals list than recent Britax convertibles ([...]). Although the Pria70 stats are not out yet, I was more comfortable with Maxi-Cosi’s somewhat safer health rating than Britax’s, regarding flame-retardents and other chemicals.

    UPDATE: re: Flying with Pria70 seat: I took this on 5 planes recently with my now 2.5yo son. I received a lot of advice to take it on board the aircraft with me instead of checking it at gate or at checkin, as you can be sure your seat isn’t accidentally damaged in cargo bay this way.

    It’s FAA-approved, with a sticker on the side stating so, meaning you are allowed to bring on board for your child to sit in. I traveled alone with my toddler for this trip, so handling the seat plus your carryon bags & child is a real challenge. I would suggest 2 adults for this task, and definitely pre-board. I took a Brica car seat cover along because it has handles & wheels for hauling the seat through the airport. BUT getting it in and out of that bag while on the plane is super hard.

    Bottom line: Pria70 CAN go on airplanes but is not an ideal seat for this. If I were a frequent airport traveler, I’d choose a Radian instead.

    Better than Britax, and way better than Orbit., February 28, 2012

    This review is from: Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat, Total Black (Baby Product)

    After a massive disappointment with Orbit Baby Toddler Car Seat (I won’t deal with this seat here, but feel free to read my review) I performed quite an extensive 6-month research on convertible car seats and went to stores to actually test them out – I played with them, I put my son in them, and I read all about them.
    Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 and Britax were our top contenders, but we chose the Pria over the Britax for several reasons – while they both are very safe (both are sturdy with advanced side impact protection) and both allow for a 3-position recline, Pria 70 has nice extras, such as a built-in cup holder, easy 1-click harness height positioning (11 harness heights and 3 buckle positions), very appealing simple & modern design, more comfortable fabric (Pria’s fabric feels much better that the velour-like fabric Britax uses – must be sticky in the summer), more padding (Pria is very soft, Britax is quite hard – probably not very comfortable for the little one), plus Britax car seats rate high(er) as far as harmful & toxic chemicals are concerned. Although the Pria is a new seat and hasn’t been tested yet, Maxi-Cosi generally rates better than Britax (I will keep an eye on the new testing and will post an update once new results are available) – see HealthyStuff[dot]org.

    Maxi-Cosi is a European brand and being from Europe myself I have seen many of them (sadly, the selection in the US is very limited). Everyone has a Maxi-Cosi car seat over there, it’s a number 1 car seat in Europe. And I can see why.
    The seat is really amazing. We installed it very fast – the entire installation took just 2 minutes – 3 clicks using the the LATCH – you just thread the lower anchorage belt through the car seat and click one buckle on the bottom left and one on the bottom right. Then we just attached the top tether and that’s it. Then we tightened everything and double checked. So simple.
    We have a BMW X3 and there is plenty of leg room for both my son and the person in the front seat. Also, for those who have this car, the top tether anchor is located in the back/trunk on the floor – kind of tricky to find it at first but the manual explains where to look for it.

    Our son is 18 months old, 23.5 pounds, 32 inches. We installed the seat forward-facing (I know I know, it’s safer rare-facing but he used to cry every single time we put him in his old infant rare-facing seat and he really enjoys to see us and everything around him while forward-facing). We used the 2nd recline angle and it’s just perfect – not too upright, so his head never falls on his chest like it used to with the Orbit Baby Toddler Car Seat which has no recline feature and is very upright. This is how Maxi-Cosi explains the recline versus energy management:
    “For children who ride forward-facing in the Pria 70, there are 2 different recline positions. For children between 22 pounds and 40 pounds, recline position 2 is required. For children between 40 and 70 pounds, recline position 1 is required. These recline positions allow a more reclined riding position for younger children and a more upright position for older children. Not only does this provide an appropriate riding position for different sized children, but the required recline angles also improve crash energy management.”

    My son loves his new seat, the horrible crying has stopped, he is so comfortable now. He used to cry so much in the old seat – we use our car almost daily (shamefully) and sometimes I have to make 3 or more stops, which means I have to put him in and out frequently – every single time I used to put him in he went crazy. Thankfully, we do not experience these tantrums any more. He doesn’t mind being in his seat and actually really enjoys the ride now.
    The side impact protection is not squeezing his head in any way nor does it block his view, he’s fine and I am glad it’s there. He uses the cup holder all the time, it’s such a little thing but it’s really a nice touch – when he’s done drinking he doesn’t toss his bottle on the floor anymore and I no longer have to stretch my arm and search for it all over the car.

    Oh, and did I mention that I love the seat too – we got the Walnut Brown color, which is gorgeous (or so I think) – it’s a very nice taupe color (which I’m very into right now) with chocolate brown accents. I love it.

    One more thing I have to mention – Maxi-Cosi customer service is impeccable. When I opened the box, there was no manual. It was supposed to be in some plastic bag along with a small chest clip for infants and a locking clip. The whole bag was somehow missing. I spoke to the customer service over the phone and emailed them and they always answered in a timely manner and ordered everything I needed and shipped it to me immediately.

    I highly recommend this car seat. If you are still not convinced, feel free to exhaust yourself on a better 6-month research.

    Jennifer Marchesano (LENEXA, KS United States) –

    This review is from: Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat, Total Black (Baby Product)

    I just bought this car seat this week for my 10 month old. I had purchased the Graco MyRide 65, and before even installing it in my van, I returned it. It just didn’t seem comfortable. I took my daughter to the store, put her in several, and this was the winner. It was so heavy and sturdy, and it has a ton of padding! Plus, at 27# and 31 inches, she is a big girl, and she fits great in this one. Many of the convertible seats are only rear facing up to 29 inches and 30 pounds. This one is rear facing up to 40 pounds and 40 inches. The straps are incredibly easy to adjust, and once they are on that upper slot, you only have to move the head rest up and down without even moving the straps. I love the feel of the seat insert for infants too. The seat was easy to install, and the two adjustments for rear facing and forward facing seem perfect. The fabric also looks very sturdy. I have never been so happy with a car seat, and this is my 4th baby.

    this child is not old enough for a frontier seat….a child MUST be 25lbs, 2yrs old, and at least 30inches to LEGALLY ride in a britax frontier.

    your child would be safest riding rearfacing still……then she would have plenty of room for napping…my 2yr old is rearfacing in a britax boulevard but other seats you should take a look at for rearfacing are the true fit, and the graco myride.
    If you insist on her being forward facing one of the few seats that allow a recline ffing is the graco nautilus.
