Recaro is well known in the automotive performance market for its high-end factory and aftermarket bolstered sport seats. But what many car enthusiasts may not know is that the seating manufacturer also makes car seats for kids.

Several years ago Recaro decided to apply its safety and ergonomic design capabilities to child safety seats. And now the company has announced a new ProSERIES line of child safety seats, designed to accommodate children as they grow.

Combined, the three models, ProRIDE, ProSPORT and ProBOOSTER, can hold children from five pounds up to 120 pounds – keeping kids in Recaro child safety seats until they're big enough to sit in the real deal. The seats are now available through retailers nationwide, but don't say we didn't warn you about the hefty price tag. Depending on the retailer, the seats range from $117 up to $279.

Recaro's older generation child safety seats have been highly reviewed by parents and received top safety ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. However, the highly anticipated new line won't be without competition. Britax, a similarly priced and rated top-selling child safety seat manufacturer, is rolling out a next generation series of car seats August 16 – their first major update in years. The question is: which company will win the attention – and money – of parents?

Not sure which ProSERIES child safety seat fits your needs? Check out our brief description of each below:

  • The ProRIDE convertible seat can be used in rear-facing mode for infants and small children up to 35 pounds, then converts to a forward-facing child seat limiting at 70 pounds.

  • The ProSPORT is a combination harness to booster car seat appropriate for children weighing between 20 and 90 pounds when used in harness mode and 30 to 120 pounds when used in booster mode. A child must be less than 59 inches tall.

  • The RECARO ProBOOSTER is for children from 30 to 120 pounds and from 37 to 61 inches in height. This innovative seat has 11 head restraint positions.
