The KeyFit® is engineered with innovative features that make it the easiest infant car seat to install simply, accurately, and securely, every time. A ReclineSure® leveling foot and two RideRight® bubble level-indicators help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. The base is also equipped with premium LATCH connectors and a SuperCinch® tightener for a secure fit with a fraction of the effort! For alternate installation with the vehicle seat belt, clear belt routing and integrated lock-offs make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place.

Tailored for Comfort
The car seat carrier includes removable head and body support to accommodate newborns as small as 4 pounds. A five-point harness with one-pull tightening helps keep baby secure, and the carrier shell is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for improved impact protection. An adjustable, removable canopy provides shade from the sun.

Built for Everyday Convenience
The KeyFit® is designed for travel system use with compatible strollers from Chicco. The carrier secures easily to the base and strollers with a reassuring audible click. A two-position carry-handle and one-hand release make it just as easy to remove.

Old Reliable!

This car seat is great! It's intuitive, lightweight, and I personally didn't need it to last longer than 22 lbs, because who wants to tote around 30+ lbs of baby and car seat, anyway?! The Chicco line has been offering seats that top the reviews for a long time, and yet their prices are still very affordable! We're moving on from this one to the

Great car seat
October 17, 2019
This is our second purchase of a Chicco infant seat. Bought one seven years ago for kids number two and three. Now on number four, we knew exactly what we wanted to get. Love how easy it is to install properly. Very lightweight and holds up well.

This car seat is very well made and I am comforted knowing my newborn will be protected while riding in the car. My mom, who is a NICU nurse highly recommended the Chicco brand car seats and this one is both extremely nice and very affordable.

Great carseat. Easy to install base and over all easy to use comfortable car seat for baby. Chicco car seat feels sturdy and well made. Comparing it to other brands of infant seat that seem more cheaply made and not as durable.
  • Very well made comfortable and easy to use
  • Is a heavy car seat to carry around,

Best infant car seat!
March 3, 2019
I did lots of research before buying a car seat for our child, and this one was the best option! Our child is comfortable in it as well. We've had it a year and it still looks brand new, even after several trips to the park, airport, grocery store and many other places. Easy to install with the base, and easy to use without a base (although the base is SO convenient). No issues whatsoever. Definitely recommend!

My favorite Car seat!
August 8, 2018
We bought this car seat for my daughter in September 2017 when she was born and it is my favorite car seat to date! I purchased another (cheaper) Graco car seat for my husbands truck and we just ended up buying another base for this one because it was so much better than the other. It is a very comfy car seat and grows with the baby with the removable pads. It is very easy to wash and keep beautiful. The fabric is also very stain resistant. I would recommend this car seat to every one I meet! We are having another baby soon and I plan to keep using the car seat for him/her!

I owned my original keyfit for 4 years. I got it with my forst daughter and used it for my next 2. I only got rid of it because it expired, but this product is worth the cost and will last if taken care of. I washed and cleaned this careseat regularly. I bought the convertable chicco and love it just as much.

Great seat. Consider the 30 model, however, if you expect your child to reach the weight limit before the height limit.

Wonderful Experience; Great Buy!
June 20, 2016
Chicco is known for creating some of the safest car seats out there. Safety was my number one priority in buying a car seat, with cost being the second factor. I LOVE that the unisex colors on this car seat will allow me to use it for another baby down the line. The seat itself meets all my expectations of what i want from the Chicco brand. This was my first experience with Albee Baby and it definitely won't be my last. This seat was less expensive on here by about $100 from every other site and store I looked at. It arrived within a week and I am thrilled with my purchase. I will definitely be a loyal Albee customer now. Thanks for making everything so easy and for easily beating out all the competitors price-wise. As someone who is having to start over from scratch to buy baby items, that is definitely appreciated!

I was pleasantly surprised that this seat is better than my graco snugride that I used for my last 3 children. Material is awesome and the ease of installing the base is great!

We love this car seat! It's highly rated (#1 from what we found), it's easy to put into the car, it looks great (the black material has a subtle pattern that makes it look really rich) and it's a good price. All things considered, I would recommend this seat to anyone. You won't be disappointed.
