Maxi Cosi Pria 85
Are you someone who doesn’t want to have to constantly buy your child new car seats when they grow out of their old ones? This is a common worry that parents have. With the thousands of car seats available on the market, it can sometimes be difficult to choose one that suits all of your different needs. But if you’re looking for a car seat that will last you a long time and that your child will grow into, a convertible seat is your best bet.
One great option for a convertible car seat is the Maxi Cosi Pria 85. This will accommodate your baby from when they’re just born to when they’re 85 pounds. This is major in comparison to many other convertible car seats on the market that offer accommodation for children up to 65 pounds at most. However, this seat doesn’t have a booster mode, so if your child still needs that when they’re done using the seat, then that’s something you’ll have to consider.
Otherwise, there are some great features that parents loved about this car seat, as well as some features that weren’t so popular among buyers. So, we will talk about the different things that people had to say as well as all that this Maxi Cosi car seat has to offer.
Provides accommodation for children weighing up to 85 pounds
Cover can be washed and dried
Has a cup holder for added convenience
Has extra protection and stability for newborns
Provides your child with all necessary safety features
The fabric prevents your child from getting too hot
Not a budget-friendly option
It’s a bit bulky and wide
Straps are difficult to tighten
To continue, you may use this car seat in the rear-facing position for children who weigh between 5 and 40 pounds and who are at most 40 inches tall. The seat can be used in the forward-facing position when your child is between 22 and 85 pounds and 29 and 52 inches. Many parents were pleased with the fact that this car seat was able to be used for so long and that they could fit their child inside until they basically didn’t need any sort of car seat or booster seat anymore. However, something that some people noted was that their children grew out of it in terms of height before they grew out of it in terms of weight.
There are some other great features that the seat has to offer. For one, when your child has a spill, you will have the opportunity to throw the cushions in the washing machine and the dryer. This definitely makes things a lot easier for parents of young children. There are also several different designs for you to choose from, which could easily make it great for customization.
Another thing that may appeal to a lot of parents is the fact that the seat has been approved for use on aircraft. Yes, the seat is a bit bulky, but there are people who have used it for travel. Since many families enjoy traveling and taking their kids with them, having a car seat that you can easily use while on the airplane is a good choice.
There is also a magnetic chest clip on the harness, which is supposed to make buckling your child in their seat a lot easier. We will discuss this in another section. There is also a pillow that is meant to be used for infants up to 15 pounds. The purpose of this pillow is to make sure that your child will be protected and safe until they’re capable of holding themselves up.
Ease of Use
Otherwise, the Maxi Cosi seat has enough padding to protect your child from impact, as well as a system that will absorb the shock of any impact. There is also an adjustable harness that will help your child to fit snugly in the seat.
There were some reviews where parents stated that they had been in car accidents - including severe ones- where their children were just fine while using this car seat. We hope that this is not a situation that you will ever be in, but knowing that the seat does provide top-notch protection is definitely one of the most important features you have to consider.
Of course, if you’re someone who likely won’t be taking the seat out of your car ever, then this won’t be much of an issue for you. And, people generally associate heavier products with higher quality materials (this doesn’t necessarily mean that a lightweight car seat is made out of poor materials), so that might be something that would make this a more attractive option for you.
Has extra padding for impact protection
Fabric is made out of moisture-absorbing material

Cushions can be thrown in the washer and dryer
The seat has a magnetic chest clip
The seat exceeds expectations for safety standards
For one, the main selling point of this car seat is that it can be used for children from when they’re newborns (5 pounds) to when they’re 85 pounds, which is far beyond what many other car seats on the market have to offer. This means that you’ll be using your car seat for a long time, and might not even have to purchase a booster seat when your child has grown out of it.
There were several other features that made this seat unique, particularly the fact that you can throw the cushioning in the washer and dryer when it gets dirty. The cushioning also provides your child with maximum comfort and protection, and it’s also made out of a fabric that will absorb moisture.
The seat exceeds expectations for safety and according to parents who have been in accidents, their children remained completely fine when they were in this Maxi Cosi car seat.
Of course, some factors like the price and the weight might be dealbreakers for some people. So you will want to take all of these into consideration before you purchase this product.
