As a parent of a newborn, one of the most difficult decisions you have to make is selecting the right car seat for your youngster. Safety is a natural instinct for parents and it is never more important than when you are transporting your baby. One of the challenges is that car seats come in all shapes, sizes and price points, making your decision that much more complex.
Fortunately, we have rating services and trusted brands to help make things a bit easier. One of those most trusted brands is Evenflo, a leading provider of a variety of top products for newborns and infants. Evenflo’s Triumph Advance LX Convertible Car Seat was recently rated the #1 car seat for performance and price by Consumer Reports.

The Triumph Advance is a convertible car seat, which many parents look for to get the best value from their car seat investment. A convertible seat meets safety requirements for rear-facing newborns and forwarding facing for young toddlers.
Evenflo’s convertible car seat is designed for Rear Facing needs of newborns and babies from 5-35 pounds who are at least 19″ long. Once your child reaches the 20-50 pound weight range, they can face forward in the convertible seat if they are at least one year old and less than 50″. Without conversion capabilities, you would typically need to be a new car seat to meet forward facing safety requirements.
Not all does the Evenflo car seat meet all require US Safety Standards and Evenflo’s own Side Impact Test Standard, it has a lot of other great features and benefits you wouldn’t find with any other $139.99 car seat. You get the Infinite Slide Harness (TM) for accurate fit, Infant Zone for comfort and support, and New Quick-Connector LATCH safely connects the Triumph to your car for use with the LATCH system.
Other benefits include the multi-position recline for comfort, Tension Right (TM) knobs for easy one hand harness tightening, easy off washable pads with memory foam, removable cupholder, removable body and head pillow, and 5 point harness.
We used other types of car seats with our last baby and while they worked reasonably well, there is no question there is much greater value and top-notch safety with the Evenflo Triumph Advance LX Convertible Car Seat. We have two Evenflo’s with this baby as we also got a carrier seat for our other car.
In the past, we have opted to go with infant seats and buy a second seat for forward facing. This obviously is the more expensive route and we were hyper-concerned about safety. Some people insist that convertible seats aren’t optimized for either rear-facing or forward-facing seating. Evenflo has got it right with their new convertible car seat, thus the #1 rating for comfort and safety!
