The first thing to point out is Nuna Exec can literally be the only car seat you will ever need. Nuna really put an emphasis on convertible when they created the Nuna Exec and it can fit a child up to 57′ and 120 pounds. The Nuna Exec has anti-rebound bar, that both extends to give extra leg room for rear-facing and flips around to become a leg rest for forward-facing. They are both extremely safe and have many desirable features like machine washable fabrics, dual flip-open cup holders, and a no-rethread harness.
The Nuna Exec starts at $649.95 and the Nuna Rava is $449.95. While the Nuna Exec is a little bit more pricey, it is certainty an investment as it can potentially be one of the only car seat a parent has to purchase. However, some parents will prefer to purchase a car seat designed for specific stages, such as the Nuna Pipa for the first year, the Nuna Rava for the middle years and the Nuna Aace for the booster stage.
