Best Car Seats of 2021
1. Chicco KeyFit: Best infant car seat
Because of how effortlessly it snaps into the base and compatible strollers, the Chicco KeyFit is a popular option with parents and critics alike. It weighs only nine pounds, making it simple to carry infant from one vehicle to another. It's also simple to put in the rear seat. LATCH connections or the adult seat belt in the rear seat fasten the base. Simply snap the seat into the base and secure baby after the base is solid and level. The five-point restraint system and easy-pull straps keep your baby tight and safe during the trip. It's a terrific option for an infant car seat, but with a maximum height and weight of 30 pounds, your child may outgrow it shortly. It has a six-year lifetime, so if you have a new baby in the family after your toddler outgrows the KeyFit, you may use it again.
Easily transferrable from stroller to car
Compatible with a fleet of strollers
Suitable only for infants
Not steel reinforced
2. Graco 4Ever DLX 4-in-1 Car Seat
The Graco 4Ever DLX 4-in-1 Car Seat was recently released, and most of the users are impressed. A rubberized harness is included in this new and improved seat. It also includes a machine-washable fabric that can be removed in 60 seconds. It also boasts a steel-reinforced frame and ten various harness and headrest configurations to keep your child safe and secure. In order for your child to be safe in a car seat, it must be properly installed. Fortunately, this seat is simple to set up in any configuration. The LATCH system in your car, adult seat belts, or both can be used with the Graco 4Ever. Although the Graco 4Ever DLX convertible car seat is costly, it is a one-time investment that covers four phases of car seats. Its weight range (4–120 pounds) and flexibility to switch between rear-facing, front-facing, high-backed booster, and backless booster seat positions struck us the most. With a 10-year lifetime, this may be the last car seat your child need until they are old enough to use an adult seat belt.
Weight range capacity 4 –120 lb
Steel reinforcement for added safety
Machine washable cushions
Not compatible with strollers
3. Graco SnugRide 35
Bulky car seats should not be a hindrance to busy families on the go. The Graco SnugRide is safe on the ground and in the air if you intend to travel with your infant frequently. This travel car seat is easy to transition from stroller to car seat base and is authorized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). While your child may surpass the 35-pound weight restriction in a few years, it's a good deal for the amount of time you'll get out of it.
FAA-approved design for planes
Easy to move from stroller to car
35-lb weight limit
4. Peg-Pérego Primo Viaggio
The Peg-Pérego Primo Viaggio is the Italian sports car of car seats, chic, elegant, and safe. It's stylish, but it also boasts a few unique safety features that other car seats lack. Adjustable side-impact protection, a contoured steel back plate, and expanded polystyrene absorb energy in a crash are all features of this car seat. It also has a shock-absorbing foam element (SAFE), which is a crumpling mechanism under the seat that absorbs force in the event of a collision. All of this is lined in machine washable jersey fabric to keep your kids comfortable on lengthy rides, hot summer days, and chilly winter days. The Primo Viaggio is a secure and elegant option if you're ready to spend a little money on a high-quality car seat that will last for years.
Reversible rear-facing and forward-facing options
Energy-absorbing foam and crumpling device
Luxurious, machine-washable upholstery

5. UPPABaby MESA
The UPPABaby MESA is a wonderful place to start if you want a secure car seat with a few extra features. It includes a canopy, machine-washable cushions, and stroller compatibility for trips to the park or zoo. The stain-resistant fabric, which repels liquids like milk, juice, and unavoidable spills, is one of our favorites. It also includes a tightness indication on the strap and side pockets where you may stow the buckles while settling baby in. All of this comes at a high cost for a newborn car seat, but it's one little step toward making parenthood simpler.
