Designed to be the only car seat you’ll ever need for your child, the Maxi-Cosi Magellan XP car seats comfortably seats your child from birth to 10 years old and from 5 to 120 pounds.
With plush, full-featured European design, it protects with a seven-position recline, the only adjustable torso side-impact protection with three torso height positions, and 14 headrest heights that raise the harness automatically for best fit.
Easily transform the seat to booster mode with the Hideaway Harness. Integrated belt lock-offs for easy and secure installation, and one-click LATCH connectors install and release easily.
Backed by more than 30 years of European engineering, it features innovative systems like the patented AirProtect, built into the headrest to cushion an impact and provide a soft pillow of comfort for your child.
Provide the utmost in comfort for your child with a soft-touch infant pillow system and self-wicking fabric car seat cover that is comfortable in summer or winter and removable for easy cleaning in the washer and dryer.
Cup holders on either side are removable and easy to clean in the dishwasher. This car seat exceeds all federal standards, including FMVSS 213, and includes a one-year limited warranty.

How do you compare the Maxi Cosi Magellan XP vs the Magellan XP MAX car seat?

Both have the exact same features, however the Magellan XP MAX includes the awesome EZ Out Harness System & ClipQuik that we love from Maxi Cosi.

The spring assist EZ Out harness system keeps the straps and crotch buckle from getting bunched under your child. Paired with the ClipQuik’s auto-magnetic chest clip, it’s easy to open with one hand, but hard for kids to unbuckle. The magnets automatically slide together to self-lock, sending you on your way quickly.

The Magellan XP retails for $349.99, and the Magellan XP Max retails forΒ $399.99
