Recaro Performance Coupe Infant Seat - Indigo

This item is discontinued.
Car seat includes base.

The RECARO Performance Coupe Infant Seat exemplifies performance in every detail. It is engineered to assure parents that their child will be protected with racing-inspired superior safety features such as full body Side Impact Protection, strap twist preventing safety-stripes and HERO harness technology. The Performance Coupe is designed with over 100 years of German engineering influence and quality American craftsmanship.

High-Performance Comfort

The RECARO Performance Coupe Infant Seat has best in class comfort features. The luxurious woven luxe and ultra soft percale fabrics are temperature-balancing and easy to clean. The cloud comfort memory foam contours to your baby’s delicate shape ensuring a fuss-free ride while the extra-large, multi-position canopy protects against harsh lighting and weather elements.

High-Performance Convenience

The infant pillow keeps your baby snug and can easily be removed when it is outgrown (for use from 4-11 pounds). The easy to read bubble level indicator and exclusive dual-adjust knob and QuickFlip foot ensure a precise installation of the base. Use the knob for small level to ground adjustments and the QuickFlip foot when you need those extra inches. The Performance Coupe also features an easy-off cover that quickly removes and reattaches, without the need for harness re-threading, for last minute cleanings. The 5-point harness adjusts easily with a one-handed pull and features 5 height and 2 buckle positions to accommodate your growing child.

High-Performance Safety

RECARO has over 100 years of precise automotive, airline and race car seat engineering expertise built into every one of our products. The Performance Coupe features deep side wings for full-body racing-inspired Side Impact Protection. The racing-inspired Safety Stripe System on the harness is designed as an easy alert to parents that a strap twist has occurred, or may occur, thus preventing a safety hazard. The HERO harness technology on the Performance Coupe offers both comfort and safety benefits. HERO is an exclusive, innovative safety feature by RECARO. HERO ensures the highest level of protection by positioning the shoulder pads to appropriately fit the child's neck, head and shoulders while resisting harness twisting and ensuring proper chest-clip positioning. It provides superior comfort by keeping the shoulder pads positioned properly so the harness straps don't rub against your baby's neck.

Good Option
November 29, 2016
I love the color and material. It's easy to connect to the base and Denali stroller. Installation in the car is quick and easy. It is a bit heavy for me to carry with my chunky baby, but I'm pretty tiny and no one else seems to have too much of an issue with it. The manual is tucked under the seat cover (bottom left side) where it says 'Manual". It can be hard to find at first and take out/put back in but it's there! The infant insert was easy to take out, once we outgrew it. Straps are easy to adjust, sometimes it's uneven, but can be fixed. I like that there are different settings for the handle and the canopy is easy to pull up and down. Over all it seems to be sturdy, but we needed to stick a rolled up towel under the base to keep the bottom leg up for it to be level. Without the towel (some people use noodles) it falls down and the base isn't angled correctly according to the bubble. We only have this problem with our Acura. The base does slide around a bit at times in our car as well.

  • Easy to install
  • Easy to adjust
  • Multiple canopy and handle settings
  • Comfortable and sturdy material
  • "Hidden" compartment for manual - great to always have it with you.
  • Large
  • Can be heavy for some as baby grows
  • Base leveling leg doesn't stay up in our car and we need to stick something under it to keep it propped up (noodle/rolled towel). Base also moves around sometimes.

Worth Every Penny
July 24, 2016
I'm expecting my first baby the end of the year and there are so many infant car seats out there. I fell in love with the Recaro one! I've known the brand for years and never heard one person make a bad comment on them. I love the style of my infant car seat, looks snug and secure for my coming baby. I'm beyond happy and overall satisfied with how fast the car seat came and when I had a question I emailed the staff and they were helpful and nice. I'm excited to use it the end of the year.

Nice car seat but narrow
May 23, 2016
We loved this car seat, however it is narrow and deep so my child would have a sweaty back from of lack of air flow to his side's. Also we had to get a replacement because our straps would not tighten evenly, however recap sent us a whole new unit and was accommodating.

So happy we went with this brand. My husband has a 1968 Camaro with Recaro race seats so it seemed like a perfect fit to begin with. Very high quality materials and light weight makes for easy carrying

Pretty Cool Recaro babyseat
January 18, 2016
I luv this Recaro babyseat for my baby. It comes with a restraint base. Base also has a lift & balance scale. I also luv that it works with the Denali baby stroller. Babyseat keeps my baby safe when we are commuting. I need to master and figure out more of the inner belt and shoulder strap adjuster. I wish babyseat came with actual paper manual and or instructions. Overall I'm very happy with this Recaro baby seat for my child.
  • Can be used with Denali baby stroller
  • Base comes with base lift n balance
  • Comes with excellent seat padding

Amazing Car Seat
December 3, 2015
After looking at all the car seats in stores, we decided on this once based on reviews and the recaro brand. It is built so much better than any of the ones in the stores. Easy in and out of the base also.

Quality seat worth the price!
September 30, 2015
Our little girl has not arrived yet, so I can't review for actual useage. The car seat arrived quickly, was well packaged, and at a great price. I really like the material, seems easy to clean, temperature controlled, and very soft. It is very well made and has excellent safety ratings. I have checked out many brands in person and read online reviews/ratings for most and the padding is much better on this one. This brand may lack in the patterned color options, but they are stylish. The car seat itself is not too heavy, but if its attached to the base then it becomes heavy. We ultimately wanted our baby to be safe and comfortable and we feel she will be in this seat.

This is what my daughter wanted!

I knew that my daughter and son in law wanted the safest infant car seat they could get. They did all the research and chose Recaro because they manufacture racing car seats. If there seats can keep race car drivers safe, then it stands to reason that this would be the perfect choice for my new granddaughter!
  • Comes in a lot of colors
  • none that I know of

Not great in all cars
July 25, 2015
I love Recaro products but this base does not fit well in my Toyota Prius. My husband has tried everything and it will not level out correctly. We are going to buy a noodle and see if we can get it to even out that way. It fits perfectly in my husbands Durango though.
