weeThink

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.

  • Had 1 for each car till one car was in an accident but has always kept my son safe and he seems to be completely comfortable in it Sep 05, 2017

    I love how lightweight yet sturdy this seat is. Pretty easy to install and adjust and I love how long it can stay rear-facing. My only wish is that it had 2 cup holders Sep 05, 2017

  • The carseat is small enough to fit 3 across, comfortable at many stages, steel framed, and safe. I have 2 of these and would highly recommend them. The frame does make the seat quite heavy to lift. Aug 30, 2017

  • Sturdy, high rear facing limits, comfy, low sides! Aug 25, 2017

  • I've used this seat for 7 yrs & 3 kids. Used them 3 across and love them! Safe, FAA approved, and narrow. Replace padding every year or so for comfort, not great as a booster, but 7 yrs in one seat! Aug 24, 2017

  • I like it and use it daily, but definitely wish it was better to make the straps tighter easier. Not my favorite, but I do appreciate the weight and height limits for rear facing. Aug 24, 2017

  • Great for my hot blooded son Aug 24, 2017

  • Very sturdy build and comfortabe car seat. The safety reviews are well worth the cost! Aug 05, 2017

  • Awesome car seat. We have 3 of these! Narrow enough to fit 3 across and comfortable for my kids. It should also last till they no longer need car seats. Jul 31, 2017

  • These seats kept me from having to buy a new car! Three fit across the back of my Honda CRV. Jul 28, 2017

  • This is a GREAT car seat. Wodnerful safety, grows with your child, and small, which is perfect for not taking up your whole back seat! Jul 27, 2017

  • Just got it, needed to buy the angle adjuster because rear facing took up so much space. But fits well, and very easy to install Jul 27, 2017

  • All steel frame, rear facing until 45 lbs, fits three across in most back seats...What's not to like!?! Jul 23, 2017

  • This a great car seat! It's very sturdy and safe, but easy to fold down for travel. If you have the need, you can fit three of these in one row of a vehicle, as they are the narrowest seat available. Jul 10, 2017

  • I recommend these! You'll find the manual can be vague, but Diono is responsive. I think it's incredibly secure and while, yes, it's pricey, the steel frame really adds to my peace of mind. Jul 08, 2017

  • Love these! Comfy, safe, and fit three across in the 3rd row of our suburban! Jul 04, 2017

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.)
