Buckle is so short, but great seat
January 31, 2021
Great seat, my 1 year finally stopped crying in the car seat. He hated it and it was torture driving anywhere with him. We had him try out a few at the store and he liked this one but not spending the 450$ itís worth in all black. This sale price made it feel better about buying it. The straps and chest clip make is sooo easy to use. The only thing thatís hard is the crotch buckle. Itís pretty short even in you move it to the next slot. You have to buckle pretty close to their thighs and that makes it hard.
ProsComfy, reclines, easy to install, easy chest clip
ConsBuckle is really short too close to crotch

Nice looking

Nice looking seat, my 2 year old has never cried to get out, it cleans easily but it is really large. We have an xc90 and it uses all of the footloose area. But comfort over everything when traveling.

Hard to tighten
January 20, 2021
I am not thrilled with this car seat. It comes with tons of pillows and is adjustable etc but itís impossible to tighten enough to make it safe. Iíve removed all the extra cushions trying to reduce the amount of friction and itís still hard. My biggest complaint about our older sons car seat was that it was hard to tighten so I tried a new brand. Disappointed. It looks nice but safety is most important.
ProsAdjustable. Comfortable. Looks nice.
ConsVery hard to tighten.

December 30, 2020
Our son is so happy and comfortable in this car seat! He was nearing the size restrictions in his infant seat and it was time for a ďglow-upĒ. We LOVE that we can wash the cover, because...toddlers! The safety ratings make us feel secure in our decision on how to best protect the most important person in our life. The quick clip harness is so easy to use and the loosening and tightening strap moves with ease.
Pros- Comfortable - Easy to wash - Easy to adjust harness
Cons- Difficult to install - mostly because of how manual is written. Read manual before even attempting to bring it to your car! The directions for installation are a bit confusing. We eventually got it figured out after walking away to sit down and fully read the entire book, before squishing ourselves back into the backseat of our car. Honestly, the instruction manual feels like this: Step 1: bake the cake Step 2: pour the batter in the pan Step 3: grease the pan Step 4: add the flour, sugar, eggs to a bowl and mix

We have another Maxi-Cosi (Pria 85) and this is definitely an upgrade. Easier to get in and out and materials seems better. Happy with the purchase.
ProsSturdy and easy in and out Latch storage and different ways of installation Fabric material feels comfortable and can be removed/washed. Should last a long time with a higher maximum weight/height allowance
ConsWeight: You would not want to travel with this seat Price: Probably the most expensive Maxi-Cosi model?

Great find!
November 11, 2020
I went to a store to search for a new car seat for my 5 month old. After an hour in the store I finally found one I liked however it was extremely expensive. I left the store feeling defeated yet I searched online. I found this site and the exact car see I saw in the store for a fraction of the price. I was skeptical at first because the cost was so low but it came in a d it is exactly what I wanted and I was even able to find a great color. I am extremely happy itís exactly what I wanted for a great price!!!

I feel as though Car seats are like insurance policies. This car seat is sturdy yet comfortable for our growing toddler. Installation is a breeze if you read your manual and do it accurately. Iím super at ease with my baby in this seat knowing the extra protection will keep her safe. I love this color purple too. Fabric is great quality too. Fantastic purchase. Iím glad we took the time to research and made this selection.

Frustrating Car Seat
September 15, 2020
I wanted to love this car seat and initially thought that we just didn't have the fit quite right and it would be get better over time as we got used to it. I thought for sure, considering the price, this would be a super nice car seat.
The installation is fine, sort of annoying that you have to take you the cup holder and remove the seat cushion, but not a big deal. Once its installed, you're fine, it isn't meant to be taken in and out of the car.

The issue is that it is impossible to get the straps secured correctly. No matter how hard you pull, tighten, adjust, etc., the chest strap is not secure enough. The leg straps, however, get so tight they leave indentation marks on his legs.
I've watched all the Youtube videos and read everything I could find online about trying to get the fit right and I'm so disappointed. We purchased this right before the pandemic started, so we didn't install it right away since we were home all the time. Now that we're using, I'm passed the return window and stuck with a very expensive car seat that isn't safe.
ProsLooks very luxurious
ConsShoulder straps not comfortable Impossible to tighten Straps not comfortable Fabric starting to pill after only about 2 months of use

After much searching, we decided on this carseat for our 5 month old. BEST CARSEAT EVER. I adjusted and installed it myself and it was soo user friendly. Its soft, its plush, the baby is so cozy he always falls asleep in the car. ( Previously leaving in the car was dreadful, he would cry after about 10mins of driving, i was so nervous to take him out) Now we just go on rides for the fun of it! He's safe, secure, and comfy so Mommy is happy!
ProsSoft Easy to adjust The magnet slider is so easy to use High safety rating Years of use

Beautiful comfortable seat, tricky install
September 11, 2020
Fits great in my Honda Pilot. Beautiful seat and my son is comfortable in it. Maxi Cosi has wonderful customer service to walk through installation via video call. A little tricky getting the harness tight around the hips, but becoming easier.

Tip- to tighten the tether pull a little bit at a time straight out, not up or towards the baby, and continue to pull excess slack from the chest to get the most secure fit and secure the Velcro after you do the final pinch test.

*Almost* a Great Seat
September 7, 2020
I was pretty disappointed in the design of this seat because we have owned other Maxi Cosi seats in the past that were easy to use. The install for this seat is silly in that you have to pull the fabric *off the bottom of the seat* in order to install it rear-facing. (They have fixed this issue in their latest version by installing a zipper in the bottom of the seat.) The main reason we returned this seat, however, is that our tall 9 month-old seemed very uncomfortable when buckled in properly, with rough, non-skid padding on the underside of the shoulder straps. Even after adjusting the height and depth, she was still quite uncomfortable, and screamed to get out. (By contrast, she loves her Cybex Aton infant seat. Never complains, just smiles when we put her in.) This seat may work fine for an older child, and I must say the magnetic chest clip is FABULOUS! More companies should incorporate this feature in the future! :)
ProsAmazingly easy magnetic chest clip! Easy height adjustment. Beautiful fabrics!
ConsUncomfortable shoulder straps. Difficult install. Overall awkward seating and strapping position?like they are strapped *onto* the seat instead of into it. Heavy!! (but this prob makes it safer)
Best UsesOlder child.

I love the magnetic closure! By far my favorite feature I was hesitant after reading some other reviews but I'm so glad we spent a little more and got this one! Once you figure it out I'll never go back to carseat without it! Only complaint is the cupholders are a little small but other than that it washes really well and has held up super well!

Crotch Belt Too Small
August 29, 2020
This would be a 5 star seat if not for the poor design of the crotch buckle. It is far too short. I wish I had seen reviews warning about this before a huge purchase. The buckle is so short the the straps over the childís legs dig in leaving red marks from even a short ride. Itís definitely not the size of the child thatís the issue either, as he is only 20lbs. I have reached out to customer service through Maci Cosi about this issue and have yet to hear back. Based on other reviews I have seen, it seems like there is not much to be done. I guess we have wasted a big amount of money. Purchased the Nuba RAVA instead, absolutely love it.
ProsBeautiful design and fabrics.
ConsCrotch buckle too small so makes straps cut into child?s legs.

This car seat is awesome! We had a Maxi Cosi Magellan and wanted a second and accidentally ordered the Max. We loved the Magellan (hence ordering another), but this one makes all of the things more plush and easier. Also, after dealing with customer service, I will never buy from another site. Albeebaby is fantastic.
ProsClips are easy. Cushions wash well. Many different pillow positions and options. The chest clip on this is so fast! It looks great in our car.
ConsThe bottom clip can be sticky if you?re not used to using it. My mom has trouble. If there was a magnet or something to hold the straps back, this would be perfect!

July 20, 2020
It's quite big so it needs large space to be assembled in car. but it's okay because I usually sit next to my baby on the back seat. Magnetic chest harness is super easy to use! you should try this model if your baby moves alot!

Love Maxi-Cosi carseats
June 23, 2020
This carseat is giant beast. I have a large van, so I have no problem fitting it in my vehicle. This is my second Maxi-Cosi. I used to swear by Britax, but my experiences with Maxi-Cosi has me sold. The magnetic clasp is a dream come true. Even my 5 year old can not escape it, but I can unlatch it in seconds. I have 6 children, and gave up the infant car seat by number 2. If you are looking for an all in one seat, this is it. Bonus, easy off wash and dry cover!
ProsWashable fabric, sturdy, magnetic latch
ConsSmall buckle between legs

This is the second Maxi Cosi Magellan Max that Iíve purchased through Albee Baby for my sons and I love it. The Car seat is beautiful, well built and has great safety ratings. My husband and I both feel safe putting our children in them. Albee baby always has the best price and when you sign up you get a 20% off coupon code. Shipping was quick as I received the item within a week of purchasing. When I contacted Customer service, they returned my email regarding the tracking the very next day. I highly recommend checking Albee Baby first for your needs when looking to purchase these types of items.
ProsBeautiful & well built with quality materials.
ConsA bit heavy.

June 13, 2020
Car seat is great has a snug fit for my granddaughter and fits my car well. I will say I donít think it would fit in a small car but would in a midsize car - I have a max cosi pria 85 that we bought for my daughters car and itís about the same size as this one. Watch the YouTube video for installation and it will go smoothly
ProsVery Cush and snug
ConsCan be a pain to install - look up the YouTube video for help.

Great car seat at a great price
May 7, 2020
I did a ton of research on convertible car seats and I landed on this one and the Nuna Exec. The specs were so close but the Magellan was half the price, if not more. We bought this because we will be moving from a bucket seat to this type very soon. I will say that installing any car seat is tough. You want everything perfect and correct. The level and indicators on this car seat make it easy to install. I referred to the manual for belt positioning and infant insert options. The features on this car seat is great. The magnetic clip and EZ in and out was a huge selling point. It is tough to tighten when rear facing. I think with practice it will get better. Overall we are very happy with the modern look and features this convertible car seat has to offer. I would recommend this to any family needing something from newborn to 10 years old!

I originally bought this seat because of the magnetic chest clip. I love the chest clip and the pop up straps. This makes life so much easier. It was difficult to get tightened down during install. The crotch buckle is very short. It is also kind of difficult to tighten the straps but not impossible. It has multiple recline positions and fits in my Nissan Pathfinder perfectly. It has its pros and cons but overall itís a great seat. I also have the Maxi Cosi Pria 3-in-1 in my Nissan Altima. It was a much easier install and the straps are easier to tighten. But it doesnít have as many recline positions or the magnetic chest clip. But if you donít care about those extra features itís a great seat.
ProsMultiple recline positions Soft fabric Magnetic chest clip Pop up straps
ConsHard to install Short crotch buckle

The only car seat my child doesn't scream non-stop in.... But I don't think it's safe for her
December 27, 2019
My eight month old absolutely hates car seats. First we tried her older sister's Britax and she didn't like that much better than her uppababy Mesa infant car seat. her car screaming was getting to the point of making herself throw up every time we put her in the car. we wanted a safe but comfortable car seats with multiple reclining positions. this car seat is definitely the most comfortable of any I've felt and I really like the look of it.

based on the reviews, we knew this was going to be a beast to install but it looked like it would be comfortable and we liked all of the positioning options. We figured that there had to be a setting that she didn't hate too terribly badly. to our surprise, installing this in the car wasn't nearly as difficult as people made it out to be. The positions of the latch clips were obnoxious but not terrible considering you won't have to do it frequently. Once installed, we realized that in order to adjust the buckle we needed to take it back out. Make sure you make all adjustments to the crotch buckle and height adjustments before you install the carseat.

Our daughter actually doesn't mind this car seat... However... And this is a big however... We can't get these straps tight enough. I am literally not sure how this car seat hasn't been recalled. I'm a pretty strong woman and my husband is a heavy lifting Marine. The strap issue isn't a strength issue it is a design flaw. The straps keep her restrained but she can get her arm underneath it and in some funky positions so I know they are not tight enough. I can pinch the straps and I also know you're not supposed to be able to do that. the straps will not get any tighter and she is a 20-pound chunky monkey so I wouldn't recommend this car seat for anyone with a child smaller than mine. There are so many strapped comments on different sites about this car seat and the reviewers are not exaggerating! This car seat needs to be recalled and with some minor adjustments to the latch holding area and the strap tightening issue, this could be the best car seat on the market.
ProsComfortable, stylish, cup holders
ConsThe straps won't tighten enough, these straps become twisted easily, the crotch buckle is hard to get to because it's not long enough, not the easiest to install, the latch clips are difficult to get to
Best Usesto put it in a car and never remove it but only for a child about 25 lb or over because I can't get the straps tight enough on my 20 lb baby

Super comfortable and really nice
June 12, 2019
All the inserts would have been great for a newborn but I had an infant car seat and didn't use any of the inserts. I have two of these for my twins and they love them. They are really comfortable, super adjustable and should last me until I don't need any additional seats in the car. The color and material is really quality, it's kind of a heathered black with a solid grey. The magnetic buckle takes a little bit of time to get good at but once you do, it works great. It was really easy to install and the material is machine washable so it's great.
