Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat Review
The Chicco NextFit convertible car seat can be used front or rear facing, with separate weight limits for both types of use. In a rear facing position the Chicco NextFit can be used for children from 5 lbs up to 40lbs and in a front facing position, for children that weigh 22lbs up to 65lbs and a maximum of 49″ in height.
The most obvious safety feature to set the Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat apart from all the others is it’s sturdy steel frame construction. When paired with the shock absorbing foam and side impact protection, a child will be kept in place comfortably, while being protected by the robust outer shell and inner impact absorbent qualities of the seat. Another stand-out feature of the Chicco NexFit is the incredibly easy installation procedure from their patented LATCH system. A newborn safety insert cushion is included for smaller babies weighing from 5 to 11 lbs, which helps them to be held more securely when using the adjustable harness of the car seat.

Ease of Use
One of the best convenience features on the Chicco NextFit convertible car seat is the zip-on and zip-off washable cushions, so if a spill or accident occurs, parents don’t have to stress about a difficult cleanup. A 2 position chest clip and crotch buckle gives the straps optimal positioning as your child grows from infant, to baby, to young child, and these adjustments are easy and simple to perform.
The Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat has a smooth base that gives parents peace of mind that they’re not damaging the upholstery of their car while the car seat is installed, a detail overlooked by some. Also, the car seat has 9 easy to perform reclining positions that gives parents the option to adjust the seat within seconds. The car seat also uses premium high-end fabrics, which are machine washable, making the car seat as comfy for children as it is aesthetically pleasing for parents.
Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat – Review Summary
The Chicco NextFit Convertible Car Seat is a robust piece of equipment, and the steel frame works to give the seat both weight but sturdiness to help keep a child protected and secure in the event of an accident. When paired with the side impact protection and shock absorbing foam, this is a seat that skimps on nothing in terms of safety. The easy to wash cushions and conveniently adjustable reclining feature also make this an incredibly user friendly car seat that a child can be placed in from the time they’re 5lbs until they reach 65lbs, both rear and front facing. The Chicco NextFit gets a Best Buy award for overall excellence in design and safety.
