When it comes to safety, The Primo Viaggio is well-equipped. It meets all federal safety and crash-test requirements. The base has an anti-rebound bar to reduce the force of a crash. The bar is non-adjustable, so it might not fit correctly in all vehicles. The energy-absorbing foam and head support will give your baby side-impact protection. The EPS energy absorbing foam runs throughout the seat to protects your child’s head and torso from impact forces, a shock absorbing foam element device located below the shell crumples upon impact, reducing stress on child’s neck and shoulders in the event of a crash. The car seat is also FAA-certified for airplane use.
Besides the general conveniences, I’m a big fan of how anti-rebound bars are available in both the based and baseless installations. I also like the no-rethread harness, harness retainers, and potential for European belt installations. Some people will also be a fan of the fact that it’s made in Italy, and I’m definitely a fan of the wide range of colors in which you can purchase the seat. Aesthetics aren’t the most important thing when choosing a seat, but they do make a difference, and it’s nice to see car seat manufacturers paying attention to that.
