Maxi-Cosi’s Magellan is the only premium car seat that you can use from birth to age 10, covering your needs from newborn seat to backless booster.

It’s truly an all-in-one car seat solution, converting from an extended rear-facing car seat to a forward-facing seat, and finally a booster. Converting the seat to each new phase is simple and intuitive, and making adjustments for a perfect fit is easy.

This seat is decked out for comfort, with premium, wicking fabrics and plenty of cushioning. That’s an important consideration for a seat you may use for 10 years or more. Seven recline positions, 14 headrest positions (the harness automatically adjusts with the headrest) and three torso height positions will also help you get the perfect positioning for your child.

The headrest features Maxi-Cosi’s Air Protect Superior Side Impact Protection. Magellan is the only car seat on the market to offer adjustable side impact protection. These adjustments are the Magellan’s special sauce for both comfort and safety.

Installing this seat is straightforward using with integrated belt lock-offs or one-click LATCH connectors. A HideAway Harness lets you easily transform the seat to booster mode. Maxi-Cosi has also made this car seat easy to keep clean: the Magellan’s fabric covers are machine washable and dryer safe, and the removable cup holders can go in the dishwasher.

If you like the idea of “one and done,” this may be the seat for you. This premium seat may cost more than lower-end versions on the market, but it’s worth the investment for comfort and safety, especially when you factor in the money you’ll save not buying a seat for car seat each phase.

So what’s the trade off? You’ll miss out on the convenience of an infant car seat that you can pick up like a basket and click right into your stroller frame, with the great advantage of not waking your baby. The footprint of this seat is also large. That’s not unusual for a rear- or front-facing car seat, but once you get into booster territory, this seat will take up much more space than its counterparts on the market. That might mean you can only fit two kids in the back seat instead of three.

Finally, 10 years is a long time for a car seat, and we don’t yet know how the Magellan will hold up to daily use—think spills, accidents, crumbs and general wear and tear.
