Additionally, all-new features include added mesh for breathability, improved comfort pad with memory foam, cup holders and stylish trim details.

The Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat has a 5-Point harness system that holds children from 5 to 40 pounds rear-facing or 20 to 70 pounds forward-facing. It incorporates RECARO Side Impact Protection technology inspired by four decades of racing seat safety.

    Recaro Performance Ride This is one of the nicest seats I have seen, in feel, style, safety, and comfort. I will break it down in different categories and give my opinion for each. This is my second child so I have dealt with car seats for several years and I am a Firefighter so I help customers often with their own seats. Description of seat The materials that this car seat is made out of are amazing. You can tell that the seat is made with very high quality fabrics. The fabric is very soft and my daughter is very comfortable in the seat. I really like the soft cushy neck straps on the harness. This keeps my daughters head in the right position even when she sleeps. She looks very comfortable. I like that there is a place for the instructions to store in the rear of the seat. I also like that you are able to store the latch straps and the top tether strap. This conveniently keeps these straps out of the way when you are moving the seat. Another feature I really like are the harness pockets that allow me to store the harness out of the way so it doesn’t get stuck underneath my daughter when I am putting her in the seat. Also preventing her from getting burned from the buckles (I live in AZ). Fit First of all, I have a 2013 Hyundai Elantra hatchback so it is a very small car. I was surprised at how much room was still left on both sides of this car seat for passengers to sit. I installed the car seat rear facing and I still had at least 2-3 inches before it hit the front seats and that was with the front seats in the farthest position towards the rear seat. This seat actually takes up less room then my infant seat did. It is a very tall seat but Recaro did a great job with keeping the base narrow so that it fits in smaller cars. I also like that it is taller because that means I can keep my daughter in the seat for longer rear facing and it will be longer before I have to buy a booster seat. Installation Out of the box the car seat comes set up for forward facing so if you are going to use it as a rear facing seat, like I am, then you need to move the latch strap to the rear facing belt path which requires you to remove only the front portion of the trim cover. I found this to be very easy to do. It took me only a few minutes. The car seat fit very easily into the middle rear seat of my Elantra. I felt that attaching the latch strap to my vehicles lower anchors was very easy. They give you plenty of latch strap to reach your vehicles lower anchors which is nice because my previous infant seat had short latch straps, making it harder to install. Due to the angle of my rear seat I did have to put a pool noodle underneath the car seat as described in the instructions to level the car seat. To me this was not a big deal but you should probably plan ahead and purchase a pool noodle because most cars probably will need them. Also I put a piece of 3/4� PVC inside the pool noodle so it would not collapse. After I got the seat level, I then went to tighten the seat and I had the car seat installed in about 2 minutes. I do like to get my seat extremely tight so it does take me a little longer. I always find that it is a little bit harder to install all car seats rear facing then forward facing. There are some car seats that I have helped friends install and I can tell you that I was able to get this seat installed a lot tighter. Easy of Use It is very easy to get my daughter in and out of the seat. She fits very comfortable. I love that you don’t have to feed the harness to adjust height. You just turn the knobs on the side and it harness height moves up or down. The harness not only fits her very comfortable, but it is also one of the easiest ones I have seen to tighten. The straps don’t twist and they tighten evenly on both sides. You can tell this is very high quality and Recaro knew what they were doing when designing this seat. Everything just seems to line up perfectly. Safety One of the things that sold me on this car seat is the fact that Recaro has been designing seats for over 100 years and that they make race seats. I figured if they have race seat technology that I would be getting a very safe car seat. I really like that fact that they tested the side impact standards beyond the requirements of the USA. The fact that the harness adjust so easily, and that you can line it up correctly with your child’s body alone make this safer. No more feeding harness straps through the back of the seat. You can fine tune the exact height you need for your child. Overall First I like that this is german engineering but the seat is made in the USA, so we can support our country and not some other country. Like I said earlier this car seat is one of the nicest I have seen in materials, style, comfort, and safety. I personally think it is worth every penny. You get what you pay for and I can definitely tell there is a quality difference above the other car seats I looked at. When my daughter out grows this seat and needs a booster seat, with out question I will be buying a Recaro.

    I feel that the Recaro Performance Ride is sturdy and safe. It is very large and my son seems comfortable in it. The only drawback I have, is that rearfacing in a sedan cannot work properly. If your backseat has any tilt to it, the seat cannot sit level. There is either not enough recline in the car seat to make it level with the ground, or the base needs an adaptor for tilted seats. We were instructed at Buy Buy Baby to purchase a foam roll (basically an overpriced pool noodle) which didn't work. We have been using a towel, but I feel it has compromised safety. No one seems to know what I'm talking about when I talk about that problem. Other than that, I am happy with the structure of the car seat.

    Recaro is the best hands down

    By Markemark

    from Washington State

    Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Rose:

    I bought the Recaro Performance ride when my son turned 1. For the last year and a half he has been the happiest and most comfortable kid in this seat. We lived an hour from town and he has never complained about comfort and he loves riding in the car. He loves his seat. We just had our 2nd child and she is a premee so i had to go out a buy a car seat last second at 6 in the morning because the car seat i brought was not approved for under 5 lbs (she lost some weight). I could not believe the cheapness of the seat I had to buy and rely upon. I immediately ordered the Performance Coupe and I am looking forward to it arriving and knowing that my child will be comfy and Safe.

      At first I didn't want to buy this car seat because of the price, but I realize how safe this car seat is compare to the other car seats that I have bought. Another thing I love about this car seat is that reclines so my toddler can sleep while going in long trips. Definitely would recommend!

      I've been using the performanceRide for 15 months and love it. My son loves it. He is comfortable whether awake or sleeping. No falling forward, and the cushion on the straps is great, no digging into his neck. Was easy to install in my small suv. Love the sapphire color. Can get him in and fast. And straps never twist.

      So far I have loved this product. I bought it based on it's safety reviews and it seems to be a great product. It sits up high and my daughter loves being able to see out the window. My only issue is that our car does not have a latch system and it is ridiculously difficult to install. However, if you have the latch system it looks a lot simpler. Also, I still haven't figured out where the cupholder goes. But overall I am very happy with my purchase!

      PERFECT!

      Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Rose:

      I absolutely love everything about this carseat! I did extensive research for 4 weeks trying to find the safest rear facing carseat for my 1 year old daughter and this was the best choice by far. It fits perfectly in the center of my 2015 Jeep Compass while being high enough for my daughter to see through the rear window but still low enough for me to see. My daughter loves it and I feel like she's as safe as possible :)

        Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Rose:

        Honestly this carseat looks cool and has some nice bells and whistles, but for a car seat this expensive, I expect a lot better. I like that it has an adjustable head rest and removeable baby insert. However, this seat is HUGE and doesn't fit in my subaru, I can only fit it in my SUV, so if you have a car, forget it. Also, the worst part is that it is IMPOSSIBLE to get the seatbelt through the rear facing belt loop path. I have very small hands and cant even get the belt halfway through. After about 20 minutes and cutting up my hand, I finally had to get a wire hangar just to get this thing buckled. All in all, ot looks great, but it just isn't worth the trouble.

        Easy to Install and Super Cool - Literally!

        By MelanieAldridge

        from North Carolina, United States

        Comments about Recaro North America RECARO Performance RIDE Convertible Car Seat - Rose:

        My husband always installs the car seats, but it was my job to install this one. Sure I had read the manual, but I was still a little lost when it came to wear to run the LATCH belts. RECARO knew my pain and the pain of a lot of parents, so they put nice labels everywhere that was important. There was no guessing what areas were used for rear-facing or forward-facing. After a little trial and error, I had this car seat installed and ready to go. The second thing I loved was the breathable design that won't leave my daughter too hot in the back seat while rear-facing. I don't want her sticking to her seat in her own sweat because the fabric was too hot. The temperature balanced fabrics, breathable mesh, and cup holder are all assets for hot weather. I think we'll survive this year's six hour drive to the beach in the middle of summer thanks to RECARO!

        Great child seat! Very stylish and built solid. Even though it seems heavy, it not bad to pull out of one car and move to another. This child seat is built as solid as any you could hope to buy. My 3 year loves riding in it and the cup holder is a bigger benefit then I could of ever image.
