Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat {Review}

My boys have each gone through a couple car seats in their lives. The main reason we needed to buy new ones was because they outgrew their previous ones. When I heard there was a car seat that went from 4 pounds to 70 pounds I wanted to learn more. Maxi-Cosi sent me their Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat to try out with my three year old.

When I first took the car seat out of the box I looked it over. I liked how it wasn’t too wide which is great for families with multiple kids in the backseat. With this car seat and Jake’s there is enough room for someone to fit in the middle seat which wasn’t possible when Luke’s first car seat was there.

I liked that the car seat had an insert for babies. Since Lucas is 3 years old we didn’t need that so we had to remove it. In terms of difficulty this was probably the most complicated car seat we have owned. It took two of us about half an hour to figure out how to remove the tiny fit insert. I think this wouldn’t have been a problem if *someone* didn’t throw out the instructions w/ the box! Once we figured out how to remove this we had no problem figuring out how to use it and it was really easy to install in the car.

Lucas likes his new car seat. It gives him more leg room than his previous one did so he doesn’t feel squished. He also likes that it hugs his body. I like that the Pria 70 has safety features like side impact protection and also features a FlexTech™ system for multi-directional energy management if we ever were in an accident. I also like that it reclines which is nice if we are traveling during naptime. It even has an easy to adjust shoulder harness that can be moved with one hand so you don’t have to completely remove the car seat from the car which is a perk for any parent.

Lucas loves it!

  1. Its interesting how some parents dont even use booster seats for their kids. My neighbor has a first and second grader and they just get in the car. I didnt think,much of that, but what did bother me was that she would let her children sit in the front seat! this i dont get. it is so dangerous. I am 31 and back as a child i had to sit in the back seat till like 5-6 grade. I was embarrassed, but my mom said she loved me and i cant go in a car with no seat belts,even just center lap To,this day, I wont ride in a car unless it crosses my shoulder and lap.

  2. Instructions make things so much easier… I don’t know why I never read them! My favorite feature is that it seems to hug the little one! I have a car seat without this feature, even though it claims to have side impact protection, I don’t see it!

  3. I really like this seat. I have heard nothing but great things about it. It is nice to see photo of an older kid in it as well, because the photos/reviews that I have seen always show tiny little ones.

  4. I just LOVE the fact that you can use this from 4 pounds up to 70 pounds! Very impressive! I also like that it seems to be more narrow than other seats too…

  5. Great review on the Maxi Cosi Pria! I love that the seat fits children 4-70 pounds, and the air protect technology around the head! I’m really going to consider looking further into this seat for our little one. We are big fans of the Maxi Cosi brand!!
