The Maxi Cosi Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat is designed to provide the right fit and maximum comfort. It fits occupants rear-facing comfortably up to 9-40 pounds. When they're ready, turn it around to comfortably fit children up to 70 pounds forward-facing. It fits your family for the first ride home from the hospital. It fits for those first rides to elementary school. The Pria 70 has Air Protect side impact protection and Maxi-Cosi's FlexTech for multi-directional crash energy management. The Pria 70 for mom and dad: less space needed for the rear-facing seat, providing more leg room for front seat parents. It installs easily with OneClick LATCH connectors, has deep recline angle adjustment and a color coded installation systems.
Overall we feel the Maxi Cosi Pria 70 Convertible Car Seat is a well built and safe product, as with all the Maxi Cosi range. However, it does come with a few drawbacks, such as the weight, ease of use/fitting and of course the TinyFit attachment. If you are going to use this car seat as a permanent fixture to your car and you love the brand then go for it. However, if you plan on using the TinyFit feature then make sure you take your time and fit this part properly otherwise it can be dangerous for your baby. If you use for the full life of the car seat you can get good value from the Pria 70.
When you have a baby, there are truly only a few things you really NEED to buy. One of those will be a car seat. I really enjoy reviewing things for you that I know you NEED, so when I was offered the opportunity to review the Maxi Cosi Pria 70 convertible car seat (at no cost, to facilitate this review), of course I said yes!
