Parenting is all about navigating new phases. Just when you get used to something, it changes. Here's one constant you can rely on, even as your kiddo grows... The Maxi-Cosi Magellan 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat can be used from birth to elementary school. So the same car seat that carries around your itty bitty baby will tote your 10 year old to soccer practice. It's designed to be used five ways: baby rear-facing, toddler rear-facing, toddler front-facing, child front-facing, and booster. Better yet, converting it from one position to another won't make you break a sweat (or scare the neighbors). Parents find it very intuitive to update the seating situation. Some of the features we love: a 14-position headrest that automatically raises the harness height, adjustable side impact protection (built into the headrest!), seven seat recline options, and premium self-wicking fabric that is machine washable... because children. There's a "Max" version (at a bit of a higher price point) that includes a self-locking magnetic chest clip, "spring assisted" shoulder straps (no more wrestling with the harness to get your kiddo out!), and a spring forward buckle for easy access. Keep in mind: since this is a convertible seat, it can't be moved out of a base and onto a stroller like traditional infant carriers. So as you navigate the first decade of parenthood and navigate the road...the Magellan will always be there.

  • So easy to install, grows with your child, easy to clean! Oct 23, 2019

  • Bought this car seat for my BMW X4 the back seat isn’t big but the seat fit perfectly. Love the high end quality and feel. Our girl typically hates the car seat but this one is fit for a princess! Oct 15, 2019

  • I wasn’t a huge fan of the recline on this one. It seemed to put his knees above his pelvis and left him at an awkward angle. Oct 04, 2019

  • My daughter loves it. She fits comfortably. Love the material. The one thing I feel is difficult is when buckling her. The buckle in the middle is hard to get to because it has this pocket around it Oct 03, 2019

  • We splurged on this seat because it was an All in One. Very stylish seat, it is bulky but it is a heavy duty seat. Seems very safe. A little challenging to install but doesn't budge once installed. Sep 20, 2019

    Full disclosure: Our expectations weren't exceedingly high with the prospect of trying the Maxi Cosi Magellan 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat...it being our third child and all. We figured "anything would Sep 11, 2019

  • Love all the features, especially the recline option which we use quite often. It’s a bit wide and heavy to move from one car to another but it’s easy to install so that’s a major plus. Aug 28, 2019

  • It doesn't get any better than 10 years with 1 carseat! I love the durability the Magellan has, and I love how easy it is to use and clean. Aug 23, 2019

    • Tai C.

    This All-in-One seat is easily adjustable in both the torso and head rest with just the push of buttons. The seat is highly cushioned - baby loves to sit in this car seat. It is safe and comfortable! Aug 08, 2019

  • Bought this to replace my Pria 70 after an accident. Has better airflow, two cup holders, and very cushy. Not as easy to remove padding, is heavy & bulky. Love how comfy it is for my son. Aug 06, 2019

  • The seat is very comfy and seems more open than our infant car seat. the one problem i have is that the buckle is hard to undo. you have to push REALLY hard on the top of the button to release it Aug 01, 2019

  • Have been using this for a few weeks now. I love the magnetic clip once you get it down it’s great. It’s very heavy though and the crotch buckles are tough to undo. Jul 31, 2019

    • Heidi L.
    • United States of America

    One of my favorite feature is the one hand adjust for the headrest and harness. Keeping this positioned correctly for my growing toddler is so important in keeping him safe! Jul 02, 2019

  • I love how easy this adjusts to fit both of my kids (left it rear facing and adjust the harness to fit a 4yo and 17mo). It's a bit more difficult to install, so give yourself extra time. I Jul 02, 2019

  • easy to adjust height and positions, very plush and pretty, but not my favorite seat. However, the life of the seat and safety/protection behind the brand make it a solid choice. Jul 02, 2019
