RECARO Performance Sport Review and Giveaway




When it comes to my children & their safety, I want the best, they deserve the best & since I have two little ones, car seat shopping is very important to me. Purchasing car seats for my children requires research, I want award winning, side-impact protection car seats that grow with my child but are comfortable & not bulky! I've heard wonderful things about RECARO & I'm so happy to finally own a Performance SPORT Car Seat!

RECARO offers a variety of car seats that are either made or assembled in the U.S.A, including the Performance Ride Convertible, Performance Sport, Performance Booster & the ProRIDE. All of their car seats offer premium features, designed for a parent's peace of mind. 


Upon taking my new RECARO Performance SPORT out of the box, there is no assembly required, which is great, I was ready to put it in my suv & let Little Sister C test out her new car seat! Detailed instructions with pictures are included in the box, including how to properly install & use the car seat, along with trim cover removal/installation, care & maintenance, warranty information & more. 

The Performance SPORT features a comfort enhancing memory foam, CoolMesh ventilation & performance infused fashions. Not only can the Performance SPORT fit three across in most midsized vehicles, it has the deepest side wings & metal reinforced side walls for full body side impact protection. 


Some key features of the RECARO Performance SPORT include:

Side Impact Protection-
       RECARO's Side Impact Protection is designed to protect five vulnerable areas of a child in a side impact collision, their head, face, neck, torso & pelvis.

Safety Stripe System-
        This one-of-a-kind racing-inspired white stripe, is clearly visible on the outside edge of the 5-point harness, this alerts parents to improper harness alignment.

EasyGuide Belt Guide-
        The belt guide is color coded so you can easily identify the proper belt path & positioning of either the LATCH strap or vehicle seat belt when using the car seat in Harness or Booster mode.

EasyAdjust 5 Point Harness-
        The harness & head restraint on the SPORT are adjusted together so no re-threading is required to properly position the harness shoulder straps on your child.

SoftTouch Seat Cushion-
        Your child will enjoy a comfortable ride in the Performance SPORT thanks to the memory foam cushion in the seat.


Transitioning from harness mode to booster mode is a breeze with the Performance SPORT, I had no problem adjusting the car seat so Big Brother C could ride in it with a seat belt. 


The Performance SPORT is loaded with extra features, my kids love the storage pockets (2) & the arm rests,  the storage pockets are great for snacks & sippy cups. 

We do use the LATCH system in my suv & the Performance SPORT can only be used for forward facing. 


When used in Booster Mode, the Performance SPORT is recommended for a child who weighs between 30 & 120 pounds & who's standing height is between 37 & 59 inches. 

My Big Guy has been in a high back booster for a while & weighing in at about 50 pounds at 8 years old, I'm happy to see that the Performance SPORT can accommodate him nicely & he still has plenty of room to grow!


Little Sister C is only 3 & weighs in at about 28 pounds, even though she's not rear facing anymore, she meets the requirements to stay in a Harness in the Performance SPORT. 

The Harness Mode can be used if the child is at least 1 year of age & weighs between 20 & 65 pounds, with a standing height between 27 & 49 inches. 


Overall, we are all pleased with the RECARO Performance SPORT, we hope to get years of use out of this car seat & highly recommend it to anyone who is shopping around for a car seat for their toddler or child!

So what do you think? What are some of your favorite features of the Performance Sport?
