Three across, Best for the Money
March 2, 2019
We drive a Ford Focus which is, in my opinion, only a medium sized car. The choice was between buying a new car or two Dionos when we had our third child because there was NO WAY we were getting a third seat in with our daughters previous booster. Although Dionos may be one of the more expensive car seats out there, they certainly are cheaper than a new car! We still are able to use our original infant carrier with the two dionos but I like these so much I will likely be purchasing a third eventually. They’re solidly made and have the most room to grow I’ve found, especially for rear-facing, and I’ve done a lot of research. I like the side impact head rests as most children are killed or injured in side impacts, and also they make sleeping easier for the child as their head won’t rock forward as easily. Best bang for your buck and cheaper than Amazon even on this site!!
ProsNarrow and large age range, able to rear face for very long. Fits three across, best quality you can buy
ConsHeavy, top heavy/tips over (when free standing), some people with larger hands may have more difficulty with the install
Best UsesFamilies with more than two children (or are planning on more than two eventually) or anyone who cares about buying the best safety for their child due to the high quality and rear-facing abilities.
