The Cosco Scenera NEXT is simply a smarter car seat – designed for families who know what they need. It can be used in the rear-facing position from 5-40 pounds or forward-facing from 22-40 pounds. (Actual fit may vary. Not all children will comfortably fit in the seat for the full weight and height ranges listed). The Scenera NEXT keeps kids safer with Side Impact Protection built right in, and a 5-point harness that adjusts easily from the front of the seat. The harness features 5 heights and 3 buckle locations so you can be sure you’re giving the best fit to your growing child. And to fit your growing family (or the neighborhood car pool), the Scenera NEXT easily fits three across in the back seat. If your chosen vehicle happens to be an airplane, the Scenera NEXT has got you covered. Certified for use on aircraft, it gives your child a familiar seat during the flight. The lightweight and compact design also get you through the airport without weighing you down.With kids in the car, messes happen. Now, thanks to the easy-to-clean car seat pad, there’s no need to stress. The pad comes in a wide range of styles and colors, all of which remove from the seat and are both machine washable and dryer safe. There’s also no more scrubbing goopy build-up from inside the cup holder; it’s dishwasher safe. For both seat pad and cup holder, a thorough wash is just a machine cycle away.The Scenera NEXT is proudly made by Cosco in Columbus, Indiana. Made by American families for American families.

Great seat for a great cost!
We got the Cosco Scenera NEXT Car Seat as a second seat to put in our parents' cars and for a lightweight travel option for the future. We are already big fans of the classic Cosco Scenera car seats, so we were excited about getting a NEXT. It's a little bit wider and shorter than the standard Scenera (see picture - classic is polka dots, NEXT is zebra print). It accommodates a 40lb weight and and 40'' height restriction (as opposed to the 35lb/36'' restrictions on the classic Scenera). It also comes with a detachable cup holder, which is nice for sippy cups on the go! Here is my assessment of the NEXT: PROS: (1) It's a great car seat at a great cost point – it hits the requirements for car seat safety (all car seats on the market have to!) and is purported to have excellent crash test ratings (according to user reviews on Consumer Reports and Consumer Search). (2) It is easy to adjust the straps (much moreso than the classic). (3) It is easy to take off the cover to clean it (MUCH moreso than on the classic). (4) It's lightweight, which makes it ideal for travel. Which brings me to... (5) It meets the FAA requirements for air travel, and though we have yet to use this model on an airplane, we were extremely satisfied using the classic model on a plane, so we're hoping for nothing but good things with the NEXT! (6) It's easy enough to install (the latching system is very similar to the classic), and the new design works better at preventing it from touching the seats in front of it (car or plane). We've only ever used these seats in the rear-facing position so I can't speak to the front-facing position. (7) The zebra print is very cute! CONS: Just one - depending on your style, this could be a maker or breaker - it's a very no-frills seat. It's a hard shell with a flimsy fabric covering it - no foam, no extra padding, none of the bells and whistles that the expensive high-end brands offer. I was a bit wary at first because it doesn't look all that comfortable, but my 16-month-old is content and comfortable in it (my toddler is very tall and has more than enough room in the seat). We are very happy with our new Cosco Scenera NEXT and will continue to use this brand as a backup for our main seat and when traveling.BB112
I was very happy to find this car seat came in a zebra print as it is my daughters theme. I really like how the adjustment strap is in the front instead of the back of the car seat, I find it easier to adjust that way. I also like the the adjustment strap is just one strap instead of two so it is less fuss. My daughter fits well into the seat and it is secure. She has plenty of growing room, so this seat will last awhile. It reclines for the use on older infants and will adjust to several positions until going into full up right position. It can be used forward facing or rear facing, but is a bit big for a small car in the rear reclining position. The straps sit comfortably against my daughters shoulders, and she can fall asleep in it without discomfort. The weight limit is enough to get me to the next stage, a booster seat, without having to buy one in between. Overall a very good product for the price being asked and would recommend this to my mom friends.faithngrace2
Wonderful child's seat
This car seat is perfect for a baby as well as a preschooler. It seats the youngster correctly owing to the safety strap and the head rest which prevents the child from bumping if the car hits a rat in the road.
The polka dot fabric is warm, durable, and washable.
The cup holder is great for holding a baby bottle as well as child's drinking cup.
This car seat is perfect as a baby shower gift because it versatile as an infant seat to grow from to a preschool child weighing up to 40lbs.jn1952
