Parents love that this seat can fit tiny 5lb infants as a rear-facing as well as much bigger kids (up to 120lbs!) as a booster. With a full steel alloy frame and aluminum reinforced side walls, this seat provides unparalleled safety. It also folds flat for travel, is FAA certified, and thanks to its narrow frame, you’ll be able to fit three across in most mid-sized vehicles, which makes this super popular amongst families with multiples.

The Catch: It’s pretty heavy, so even though it folds flat for easy transport, it’s a bear to lug around.

REGRET: 7 WANT: 337
  • LOVE LOVE LOVE this car seat. From infant to toddler so far it has been great! Steel frame, slim design - can fit 3 in a standard car. Have one in my car and husband's car and plan to get another! May 14, 2018

  • This is the absolute best car sear (in my opinion). I love the safety ratings, and the ease of use. I have a very tall 4 year old, and this carseat will be perfect for years to come! May 14, 2018

  • Love it!! Slim base, comfortable seats, steel reinforced for maximum safety. May 14, 2018

  • Love that this seat offers rear facing up to 50 pounds. Love that the frame is steel and folds for easy airline checking. Hate the head wings, my son is very tall and grew out of the seat right at his May 13, 2018

  • We rear-faced until 3 and used the Diono foam positioning pad that can be purchased separately. Fantastic seat and makes it easy to get child into. May 10, 2018

  • For rear facing, we love this seat. I love the small foot print side to side, and the low profile. It makes it easy to get baby in and out. However for forward facing, it is very short lived. May 01, 2018

  • I started with a britax, after seeing my son would quickly outgrow the 1st one we upgraded to the radian. BEST PURCHASE to date. Safest standards on the market, easy to use, ended up with 4 radians! Apr 25, 2018

  • We have 2 of fhese and love how safe they are. Hands down the best car seat out there, however, one of them has issues with the strap and the strap will not get tight no matter how hard you pull. Apr 22, 2018

  • I want to love this car seat, I really do. It is very heavy, great looking, and incredibly sturdy. However, it was complicated to install and recently had a recall on a part of the seat. Apr 16, 2018

  • We own 3 because they are well designed, top rated for safety, fit a 6lb infant and I know my children have enough room to grow. Bonus is they are slim enough to fit 3 in my Pathfinder's second row! Apr 13, 2018

Everyone
  • Q: Does this carseat have a level on it and adjustable angle base?

    asked by Mollie B. - Jul 09, 2015

  • Q: Does this car seat work with the UppaBaby Vista stroller?

    asked by Secretly Expecting - May 04, 2014

  • No. This is a convertible seat and those are not designed for stroller compatibility. Only infant carriers are designed for portability and stroller compatibility.

    Courtney G. - May 04, 2014

  • No, this is not an infant only carseat, it's a convertible, so it stays in the car.

    Marisa G. - May 04, 2014

  • As people said this is a convertible car seat for after the infant one but I highly highly recommend it! I have two and absolutely love them! I have tried others and haven't liked them as much and my friends all wish they got dionos!

    Melissa P. - May 04, 2014

  • No, but if you're taking it to the airport, you can get a rolling luggage cart and strap the car seat to that. You can even let your kid ride on it through the airport. (so say my sources, I haven't tried.)
