Clean looking, easy to clean, and install
We bought this based off consumer reports and other reviews. We really like that this model is easy to clean and install. We have the latch system for our infant seat and enjoyed using it over messing with the seat beats, so that was a big plus.
Overall, we are really happy with this carseat and likely buy second one.
The other two we seriously considered (did not buy).
Britax Boulevard Click-tight - Did not like the click tight system over the latch system. We thought the car seat in general did not look as "clean". We did like the reviews and cool fabric option.
Nuna RAVA - Also seatbelt option only. Does look really nice, but seems hot for Arizona. Also, the otters reviews had you removing half the pads to make useable and clean was difficult (but these were other reviews). Also the most expensive.
ProsVERY EASY to clean
LATCH system - we prefer over messing with seatbelts.
Overall - nice appearance.
ConsAdjusting the incline is difficult once installed (rear facing)
