A Closer Look at 3 of Today's Leading Children's Car Seats

Choosing the safest, most comfortable and cost-effective car seat can be tough for modern parents, but comparing the leading child car seats available today will help make the decision easier for those in doubt.


The Uppababy line of car seats feature impressive safety features, and integration with Uppababy strollers. The Mesa car seat is also equipped with side impact protection to help prevent infant injury during an accident. With a hideaway canopy to shield infants from the sun and an adjustable headrest, the Uppababy Mesa provides safety and comfort. At an average price of $280.00, the Uppababy is a smart investment for parents with small infants and premature babies.


Bob B-Safe car seats from Britax focus on child safety combined with an easy to use design. The Bob B-Safe can be integrated into their B-series strollers, but a Click and Go adaptor must be purchased separately. Equipped with a 5-position adjustable seat, the B-Safe can be installed in any vehicle without sacrificing comfort. The Bob B-Safe also features side impact protection and a protective canopy. Certified for safe air travel, the Bob B-Safe offers a lot of features for a very affordable price of $199.99.



Bottom Line

Parents looking for safety, performance and features will find that all 3 of these car seats are great choices. Uppababy Mesa and Bob B-Safe have comparable features, but the B-Safe is a better choice for parents on a budget. The Orbit G2 makes it easier to get baby to and from the car, but parents will have to pay big for a little extra convenience.
