Set the standard for automotive elegance with the mindfully designed LUXE? collection from Chicco?. Showcasing a perforated black leatherette layered over a hint of color, the sheen of a classic bright silver zipper, and all embodied in an exceptionally soft jet black knit, the LUXE? collection delivers with every luxurious detail that you'd expect from Chicco?. The Jade? fashion features emerald green.

The NextFit iX convertible car seat fits your vehicle and fits your child with proven SuperCinch LATCH functionality and a new LockSure? vehicle belt-tightening system, plus easy-to-use adjustability designed to comfortably accommodate growing children from 5 to 65 pounds. NextFit iX Zip LUXE also features a zip-off seat pad for easy cleaning and premium fabrics like buttery-soft knit and color-punched leatherette that add comfort and offer a chic, luxurious aesthetic to complement automotive interiors.

NextFit iX features a ReclineSure leveling system and RideRight bubble level-indicators to help achieve and verify proper angle in the vehicle seat. With nine recline positions, ReclineSure is designed to accommodate a wider range of vehicles in both rear-facing and forward-facing modes. For installation with LATCH, premium connectors and a SuperCinch force-multiplying tightener help achieve a secure fit with a fraction of the effort. (When it?s time to switch from rear-facing to forward-facing, the LATCH strap passes easily through the built-in slide path for proper re-positioning.) For installation with the vehicle seatbelt, clear belt routing and LockSure? lock-offs make it easy to position, tighten and lock the belt into place.

NextFit iX is engineered to last from newborn through preschool with built-in ?fit-ability? for every stage, including a removable newborn positioner and smooth one-hand headrest adjustment with nine positions. As the headrest is raised, the harness shoulder strap position also raises and widens to accommodate growing children without re-threading. The 5-point harness features an easy-pull, force-multiplying tightener and removable, machine-washable shoulder pads. For easier in/out, NextFit iX Zip is also equipped with a padded ComfortFlex harness management system that holds both sides of the waist belt out of the way until the child is ready to be buckled.

NextFit iX has a steel-reinforced frame and is lined with EPS energy-absorbing foam for superior side-impact protection.

NextFit iX is designed for use from 5-40 lbs in Rear-Facing mode, and from 22-65 lbs in Forward-Facing mode.

  • Easy to put in

3 years later & still love it
October 30, 2020
We bought this car seat 3 years ago & are still loving it, & are about to buy another for our 2nd daughter. I have zero complaints. It still looks brand new. The zip cover comes on & off easily & washes great. It’s easy to install, easy to adjust, & my 3 year old is still happily rear facing. We’ve tried it in quite a few different vehicles & it’s worked well in every one. I also have been so holy ordering from Albee Baby. Our first one had a tiny tear in the leather & they sent us a new one within 2 days.

I've had this car seat for almost a year now and it is still in excellent condition! It adjusts easily when my daughter grows and she always feels very secure with all of the padding. It is easy to move from car to car when needed and we have had zero issues!

Dependable Carseat
November 29, 2019
We have been using this carseat for more than a year and it is very convenient and dependable. When you lift the carseat, you can really feet the weight of the steel frames. The straps are easy to navigate and I can tell that my toddler is super comfy when seated inside.
  • sturdy, dependable and easy to wash
  • slightly wide so if you don't have a large backseat, it may be uncomfortable for someone to sit right beside the carseat

I absolutely love these car seats!!! I have 4 of them, and the Zip off feature is the best thing ever!! I have had SEVERAL times on a long trip where my little one leaked thru his diaper, or threw up! We got to the hotel, zipped it off... washed it in the hotel, and zipped it back on the next morning!! They dry super fast hanging up!!

Loved this seat
May 1, 2019
We had this seat for around a year, unfortunately had to replace it after an accident (in which my daughter was totally fine, didn't even cry, even though 10,000 of damage was done to my car, which speaks volumes for this seat) and I stupidly decided to try a Magellan since it goes up to 120 lbs. I should have ordered another one of these! This seat feels so well made and it looks great in the car. Straps tighten nicely and the LATCH works great.

The only thing I wish it had was the belt closure method of the Britax or Nuna but this seat is much more reasonably priced.

  • Well made, super safe, great spring back harness
  • I wish it had a wee bit more leg room and an easier connection path for the seat belt like the Britax or Rava

I have two of the Nextfit Zip convertible carseats and I love them!! They are so easy to take apart to clean in the washing machine and then they come out looking brand new. The zip is way easier to remove than the regular Chicco convertible covers. They look very comfortable and my son seems to like the carseat. Highly recommend.
  • Unzips easily for washing
  • Extra padding for child's comfort
  • It is very heavy, however most convertible carseats are

Literally no down sides to this seat, easy to clean, easy to install, easy to adjust, High quality padding, heavy duty, very safe and sturdy feeling.

Chicco is always our go to brand and this is by far the best convertible seat, in my opinion highly superior to the Graco extend to fit.

We’ve been using this car seat for over 8 months now and we love it! Easy to install, and our 18m old is comfortable in it. The fabric is nice and plush. On a 4 hr road trip she slept the whole time! I’ve recently had to unzip the fabric to wash it because baby girl puked all over her car seat. Let me tell you, it was so easy to take off and put back together. We bought non-zip version of this one, and it wasn’t as easy to put back together. Def recommend !

Safe and easy to use
December 17, 2018
The Nextfit zip is a safe and easy to use seat. My daughter loves her seat and never complains. It is very adjustable to fit many sizes of kids and cars. Very easy to install and the super cinches pull straps make it a breeze to properly tighten the seat. The sides of the seat are high, which I like while my daughter is still younger and smaller. As she gets bigger 2+ years it could get a littler harder to put her in the seat because of the high sides. As for now we love the seat.

So happy and impressed with this seat. Easy to install, seems comfy, and sturdy. I love that my daughter can see put the window but is still protected. I also love that we can use this seat for a long time. The only negative thing I can say is that the sides are high so sometimes she gets her head bumped. Whoops. Think that’s any car seat though. Also, the insulated cup holder and easy to unzip topper is an added bonus. Well worth the money!

I love this carseat! We've bought two-both from Albee Baby for their sales prices-once for each car. I bought one originally for my vehicle as my husband and I would usually only use for family outings, but they're too bulky to switch back and forth between cars. This car has the softest fabric and the most comfortable cushioning there is, which I wish was advertised online by more people because the 'air' version of this seat does not--it is really rough on the skin.

Very Good, but heavy
September 9, 2018
This seat is very sturdy, comfortable for the baby. My only complaint is that it is so heavy and tall. I also have two Chico boosters that are similarly constructed. It is very good for the baby, just very bad for the lower back! It would be tough to buckle in for someone of short stature becasue the seat sits so tall. Once it's in the car though, not a single complaint.

Great carseat
August 30, 2018
This so far has worked great for us. Seat seems very comfortable for my 13 month old. A couple negatives are it can be difficult to get the seat cinched in tightly enough and when you do (and the seat is rear facing) it is impossible to change the tilt of the seat since the handle is squished into the back seat of your car. I think the tilting handle would have been better placed by the headrest. Other than those 2 things I really like the seat
  • great amount of padding, comfortable
Best Uses
  • toddler +
  • difficult to get a tight fit, tilt handle is not accessible when rear facing

I decided to pull the trigger and get the LUXE seat during their anniversary sale! I was very excited, I knew the nextfit was absolutely the car seat for my little one. I absolutely love the keyfit 30 we had for her. One of the major deciding factors on getting the LUXE was that the description also said it had the 3D mesh back panel (the nextfit air was all sold out) I definitely would have purchased the regular nextfit ix, which is cheaper. Over all still very impressed with this carseat but the luxury element was not worth the extra money for me.

I was excited to find this car seat l! It’s not available in any stores in our area and online the price was 320+ on every other website. I was nervous about ordering since I haven’t ordered anything from this website before and it was a big purchase but car seat shipped and arrived within a week! Love this site so much my husband ordered another car seat (different brand) from this site as well!
  • Super soft like memory foam (more padding than any other carsear we?ve looked at)
  • Plenty of room to grow
  • Several recline positions
  • deep seat that?s sometimes difficult to get in when rear facing.
  • Clasp is kind of flimsy compared to the Chico infant seat.

Heavy duty and comfortable at the same time!
August 24, 2018
I did a ton of research on convertible carseats before purchasing this one. I was between the britax boulevard and this particular zip carseat. I ended up choosing this one because of the cleaning capability it offered. This is a great carseat. I think installation was only about three minutes which just included pulling on one end and then on the other. Manual explains how to do it. (My husband did it but said it was easy enough). It is big and bulky but I knew what I was getting into when I read the reviews. We drive a Toyota Highlander and I am 5' 4" and can sit comfortably in the passenger seat with the carseat behind me. My daughter who is 17 months seems to sit comfortably in the seat. I love that it can be unzipped for cleaning purposes as she tends to spill. The only complaint that I have is that I have to really watch her head (rear facing) because the sides are so much taller than her infant car seat. She did accidentally hit her head on the door frame once because of that, but it hasn't happened since now that I'm aware of that. I would definitely recommend it though.
  • We have the luxe edition and it is made very well. Lots of padding. Soft. The crotch harness is even surrounded by padding so I don't worry about pinching my daughter's thighs.
Best Uses
  • Spacious cars. Midsize to full SUV. Truck.
  • A bit tall on the sides.

Wouldn’t buy any other brand!
August 24, 2018
This carseat is amazing. We will always buy Chicco. The quality is amazing, the material and the way the carseat is built is a 10 plus in my book. The izip feature is going to be handy for when the cover needs washed. Our daughter is so comfortable in it and she loves being able to still be rear facimg and can look around and see outside of our vehicles since the seat sits up so high. It is bulky but it’s so worth it. We had this same car seat minus the izip for the past 5 years with our first child and it was an amazing seat for him and it held up the entire time. We are currently pregnant with baby #3 and we will buy this seat when it comes time to switch from an infant seat to this.

Sleek, comfortable ride for baby
August 8, 2018
Bought this car seat after several friends recommended it. The fabric & materials look very sleek, but more importantly my baby was so comfy in the seat. Install was a breeze. I feel like the latch system is easy for seats going between cars. The only think that annoys me is I wish there was a holder on the sides to hold back the straps. My baby is extra wiggly & sometimes doggingbthe straps from underneath her is a pain.
  • Zip off cover for those diaper explosions
  • Several recline/head adjustments
  • Easy install
  • No holder for straps on sides, would be helpful.
