RECARO Performance Racer Convertible Car Seat

RECARO Performance Racer Convertible Car Seat

Recaro GmbH & Co. KG, also know simply as Recaro is based in Germany and is known for their automotive bucket seats and racing-style seats.  Recaro also manufactures aircraft seats and child safety seats, one of which we are reviewing today.

Recaro proudly states that safety has been their number one priority for 100 years.  They realize that safety should not mean that your child is not comfortable, however, so they build their car seats with comfort in mind, as well as safety.  Features of their child safety seats include memory foam, CoolMesh air ventilation, temperature-balancing fabrics and a variety of fabric color options.  Recaro produces car seats that are designed to keep up with busy families and make kids happy!


The RECARO Performance Racer Convertible Car Seat offers comfort, convenience, and safety.  The features are racing-inspired, and include a high impact energy absorbing shell, full body Side Impact Protection, Integrated Anti-Rebound Protection, a foam headrest, the HERO Harness System and the Safety Stripe System.  The cup holders not only hold bottles and sippy cups, but they provide anti-rebound protection during a crash, and they have removable inserts.  They help absorb and distribute crash forces more effectively during impact, reducing the car seat’s rotation.  This car seat is German engineered yet built in the United States of America.
