Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat Review

Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat Review

Surround your baby in comfort with the Pria 85. The Pria 85 is a convertible car seat by Maxi-Cosi with a pretty common rear facing range, yet a rather impressive rear facing range. The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat is an up-date to the well-loved Maxi-Cosi Pria 70 convertible car seat. Maxi-Cosi is Europe’s most admired brand of premium car seats. Even though the Maxi-Cosi car seats sold in the U.S. aren’t the same seats sold in Europe (because of different standards and regulations), parents in America are embracing this brand and everything it stands for – safety, style and comfort. The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat takes numerous cues from its European-counterpart, and incorporates plush fabrics & little details such as the easy-to-remove cover, no re-thread harness, and harness holders that make buckling the baby easier.



The Maxi-Cosi came-up with plenty of fun details and features in the design of this Pria 85 Convertible CarSeat, and here are a few:

No Re-thread Harness

The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 no rethread harness features 9 height positions, making it easy to-obtain a proper fit on just about any-sized child. For rear-facing, you can have the straps positioned at or below the-shoulders; while for forward facing, the straps are positioned at or above the-shoulders. The head-rest design places theht head-wings right around the kid’s head without squashing his/her shoulders or awkward-positioning as some other car seats tend to do. Squeeze the handle in-the head rest and pull down or up to adjust harness.


Easy-Remove CoverMaxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat

Let’s face it: children are simply gross. No matter how spotless you try to keep your vehicle, they’ll always unearth a way of making a mess. Whether it be apple juice, goldfish crackers,organic fluids, or some mystery matter/substance that can only be conjured by a toddler, the bottom line is that you’ll have to wash the-car cover at some point. The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat features an easy-to-remove cover which is both machine washable and dryer safe and comes off without the need to uninstall the car seat or undo the harness.


Comfy Fabrics

The gray material of this convertible car seat is the soft fabric and it looks & feels just-like a snug pair of sweat pants. It does contrast with sleek, navy premium fabric, resulting in a striking seat which combines style and comfort. The seat is available in a range of colors including Brilliant Blue; Passionate Pink; with a number of cameos from a-Devoted Black model.


Harness Holders

Having to dig harness-straps out from beneath a wiggly toddler is, to say the least, the worst. The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat has the handy little clips on-the side of the car seat so as to hold the-straps ‘out of the way’ whilst loading and unloading. The harness-holders are in the ideal position to easily tuck the straps in. The seat also features a separate harness strap covers for children over 65 lbs. This is only needed if seat is NOT tethered.


Exceed Industry Standards

The Pria 85 has been thoroughly tested to meet industry expectation set by the US safety standards though in many ways, it also surpasses them. It is for that reason that this seat is FAA approved for use in aircraft and offers 10 year lifespan before expiration.


Final Thoughts

The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 Convertible Car Seat carries loads of nice features & will definitely last the average kid a long time. You’ll appreciate the plush premium fabrics, comfy fit, and easy-to-remove cover. With a suggested retail price of $299.99, the Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 won’t fit all budgets, although the ease-of-use features do make it a nice choice for many growing families.
