The Pria 85 by Maxi Cosi is a convertible car seat made for cushy comfort that accommodates children from a remarkable 14 to 85 pounds. It’s also specially designed to fit better in your car, allowing more room for passengers to stretch out in the front seats. This feature means it also works well in airplane seats when you’re traveling

This is the only convertible car seat rated to 85 pounds; the extended weight range means you can keep your child safely harnessed longer. Your child can ride rear facing from 14 to 40 pounds, and forward facing from 22 to 85 pounds. (Though the reality is that not many children will still be using a convertible car seat by the time they weigh that much—usually they outgrow the seat in height or age before they do in weight.) Note that this seat is not appropriate for newborns.

However! The Pria 85 MAX accommodates children from 5 to 85 pounds. It’s designed to make it easier to get your child in and out of the seat and to fit better in your car, allowing more room for passengers to stretch out in the front seats. This feature means it also works well in airplane seats when you’re traveling, too.

Your child can ride rear facing from 5 to 40 pounds, and forward facing from 22 to 85 pounds. A removable insert makes the seat snug for smaller babies. All stages benefit from the Air Protect side impact protection that shields your baby’s head from injury in case of a crash.

The Pria 85 & 85 MAX have several design details that make installation and adjustment less of a hassle. There’s a one-click LATCH system for easy installation, and deep rear-facing adjustment makes it easier and faster to correctly install the seat in the rear-facing position.

The both also have three recline positions to fit different seat slopes. You can adjust the harness height with one hand and make micro-adjustments to get just the right fit, and harness holders keep the straps out of the way when you’re getting your child in and out of the seat.

Both seats protects your child with Air Protect side impact protection placed where it’s needed most, around the head. Head wings protect your child and come in handy for naps. It is made with premium CosiCushion fabrics and padding.

Bonuses with the Pria 85 MAX: It has a magnetic chest clip that opens easily with just one hand and locks on its own when you’re getting your child into the seat. Harness holders keep straps out of the way when you’re loading up, and the lower buckle has a flip-away design that keeps it from getting stuck under your baby.

Both seat pads unsnap and remove easily over the frame, which means you can take them off without removing the seat from the car to machine wash and dry. These features make it miles easier to keep the Pria 85 & 85 MAX clean compared to other car seats, where removing the cover is much more difficult and it has to be spot cleaned or air-dried.
