Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat {Review}

We brought my son home in the Maxi Cosi Mico AP and we've loved it. Now that he's older, and heavier, it was time to look into getting a convertible carseat. We got the Pria 85, the newest convertible carseat from Maxi Cosi. The Pria 85 is a premium carseat and we were excited to test it out.

Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Review

Since we loved our Maxi-Cosi Mico AP so much when my son was an infant, we were excited to test out the Maxi-Cosi Pria 85. The Pria 85 is the only carseat that is rated to hold children up to 85 pounds!

The seat was easy to install in my Dodge Journey with and doesn't take up any more room that the Mico AP did. And since the Pria 85 is specially designed to fit better in your car, we can still ride comfortably in the front seat without feeling cramped. Easy to follow guidelines help you make sure the carseat is installed properly.

Safety is the most important feature for me when buying a carseat for my kids. Give your child a safer ride with the Air Protect®: Advanced . This air cushion system protects your child’s head where it’s needed most in a side impact crash.

Getting Judah in and out of the seat is easier than ever with their handy harness holders that keep straps out of the way. Just slide the straps into the holders and there is much less fighting getting into the carseat, trying to wrangle his arms in, or dig under him for the straps.

The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 has a really plush feel to it and I love that both the seat pad and harness covers are easy to remove and washing machine and dryer safe. Easy for cleaning since we love to snack in the car and he's always getting half eaten cheerios on everything. He feels like a big boy now with his very own cup holder. Put the cup in, take the cup out. Also handy for stoying a little plushie for playing.

The new Maxi Cosi Pria 85 gets a big smile from my little guy!
