SmartSecure System: Have you ever looked at your car seat and just scratched your head, wondering if it was installed right? As a first time parent, it may be intimidating to know if you installed your car seat correctly. That is why we added an innovative visual red-to-green indicator to our car seats, like the UPPAbaby Mesa V2 Infant Car Seat, to ensure an accurate installation every single time. 

Side Impact Protection: We’ve designed our integrated headrest for side impact protection. Our car seats are crafted to spread out forces during side-impacts, ensuring your precious one stays shielded and safe. Because like you, we put their safety first, always.

Picture this: a sunny day, your little one nestled comfortably in their car seat, feeling that gentle breeze thanks to our enhanced breathability through the seat’s fabric and side ventilation for airflow. The Mesa Max base also includes an adjustable load leg that adds stability and increases overall safety. It helps to limit forward rotation during a frontal collision and reduces the chance of a head or neck injury.

We seamlessly combine comfort and the unwavering assurance of safety as you travel along the roads with your UPPAbaby Mesa Max Infant Car Seat.

With 95% air in its structure, Koroyd’s thin-walled tubes reduce weight and enhance comfort without compromising on safety within the UPPAbaby Knox.

Booster vs. Infant vs. Convertible Seats

Navigating the world of car seats can sometimes feel overwhelming, especially with so many options to choose from. Let’s break down the different car seats together.


Purpose & Design


Infant Car Seats

Tailored specifically for newborns and infants, generally up to a year in age depending on their height and weight. These seats are rear-facing and designed for the earliest stages of life. They’re crafted with love for those first ‘welcome to the world’ moments. 

Convertible Car Seats

Like watching your little one go from crawling to running, these seats evolve. As the name suggests, these seats “convert” from rear-facing to forward-facing, adapting as your child grows. They offer a longer lifespan, accommodating your child from infancy to toddlerhood.

Booster Seats

For kids who’ve left their convertible seat days behind but aren’t quite grown-up for the standard seatbelt, booster seats step in. Booster seats ensure that the seat belt fits correctly over the stronger parts of your child’s body.


Duration & Transition

Wondering when to switch? It’s like figuring out when they’re ready for the next shoe size. UPPAbaby provides additional resources to help parents know when to upgrade their child’s seat.  


Why Quality Matters at Each Stage

Each stage has its own unique needs: the fragility of a newborn, the playful nature of a toddler, and the budding independence of a young child. With our family of car seats, we’ve got your back. We get the nuances of every phase and know that safety shouldn’t be compromised. 

Through all the growth spurts and new adventures, remember that UPPAbaby is right there with you, championing both comfort and safety with our range of car seats. Because, like you, we cherish every single milestone.


Beyond Safety: What Savvy Parents Look For

Safety is the number one priority, but as we juggle the roles of chauffeur, DJ, and snack distributor on those family drives, we know it’s about so much more. Whether it’s the daily school runs or those spontaneous adventures, here’s what the UPPAbaby family of car seats brings to the journey:


Comfort for the Little One


Gentle Cushioning

As parents ourselves, we know that every ride should be a balance of comfort, style, and seamless function. With the UPPAbaby family of car seats, sensitive baby skin is cradled in gentle cushioning, ensuring sunny trips remain cool and relaxed. And those little spills? We’ve made cleanup straightforward with washable fabrics. 

Comfort doesn’t have to mean compromising on style; our sleek designs echo modern aesthetics, blending seamlessly with your preferred style. The real magic? Our “Performance Travel System” (PTS) ensures smooth transitions between our car seats and strollers, making each outing a breeze by directly attaching the Mesa V2 or Mesa Max to the Vista V2 or Cruz V2 stroller. It is even compatible with the Minu and Ridge with the addition of convenient adapters. This creates a stylish and simple solution that goes from drive to stroll (and back again).

And those small, thoughtful touches? With our no-rethread, adjustable harness, we’ve got you covered. At UPPAbaby, we’re not just crafting car seats; we’re building a trusted companion for your family’s adventures.


The Right Travel System

This cannot be stressed enough. As parents, your car seat isn’t just a standalone item. The right travel system ensures that the car seat, the stroller, and any other components make your travel experience easier. 

This synchronization is key for those moments when you’re juggling groceries, attending calls, and handling a curious baby—all at once.
