Installing and removing child booster seats can be a pain for parents. And the seats themselves are often not that comfortable for the kids, either. Well, in its integrated booster seats, Volvo offers a solution for both in most of the brands’ crossover and wagon models.
The optional integrated child booster seats available in the Volvo XC90, V90 and V60 allow owners to quickly transition from kid transport to adult transport. Just pull a latch, and the forward portion of the back seat bottom pops up and lifts back toward the back rest. The result is a booster seat of comparable comfort to your child as the regular back seat would be to someone older. At the same time, the booster lowers back down just as easily if you need to ferry older kids or adults.
It’s a great feature. Of course, they cost $500 for the dual outboard integrated booster seats in the V90 and V60, and $250 for the XC90’s inboard seat. That’s not cheap, but there’s something to be said for their quality, execution and integration.
