Amazing! Well worth the money
July 17, 2017
We own a Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 car seat and liked it ok enough, but we were frustrated with the complicated installation, how hard it is to tighten the harness, and how much room it takes up rear facing. So when we bought a second car, I went looking around for other options for our second convertible seat. I was iffy on the Nuna Rava because of the price-- could I really justify it?!-- but decided it was worth the try knowing that our child will be in it for 4+ years. WOW! It is amazing. I installed it securely without help in under 2 minutes. The push button recline is so simple, and results in a much more compact rear-facing set up. The materials are great quality, the harness tightens with ease, and the cup holders are great. Knowing that we can easily move the seat between cars in the event that grandma needs to do pick up (in her tiny car) was also a huge plus. The extended rear facing limits are also attractive since our child is tall. So when we hired a babysitter who needed her own car seat... I gave her the Maxi-Cosi and got a second Nuna Rava!
ProsSuper easy and secure installation
Compact front-to-back when installed rear facing (fits well in compact car)
Easy recline gives you the perfect installation
Easy to adjust harness
ConsPrice... but find your own way to justify it :)
Best UsesGreat if you potentially need to transfer it between cars since the install with the seat belt is so simple.
