Know You're Safe in an Evenflo Car Seat

Disclosure: Growing Up Madison did not receive compensation for this post. 


If you have a little one at home, then more than likely you also have a car seat for that little one. A car seat is a requirement for that very first car ride from the hospital. You may have seen news that car seats will have to be tested to withstand side-impact collisions of up to 30 miles an hour.  Since a quarter of all car accidents are side impact collisions, this move will save the lives of children. It's incredible that this is now being talked about. Luckily for us Evenflo has you covered. 


Symphony All In One


Right now, it’s practically impossible for parents to know if car seats have been properly crash tested or to trust they will truly protect children in the event of an unfortunate collision.  “The Truth aboutChild Car Seat Safety Claims.”  I’m sure you will be shocked to find out that many car seat brands don’t test for side-impact collisions, since the manufacturers are not required to do so. Since 2008, Evenflo is one of the few car seat manufacturers that have been doing side impact testing across their entire product line including the #1 rated seats: Symphony All in One and Triumph Convertible. Side-impact testing simulates a crash in which the vehicle carrying the car seat is struck on the side by another vehicle. An example of a “real life” side impact collision is when a car crossing an intersection is struck on the side by another car that ran a stop sign.  Parents trust car seats to protect children in the event of an accident and it’s Evenflo’s commitment to make sure that each car seat will keep a child safe.

Evenflo test at speeds that replicate the Side Impact Testing for New Car Assessment Program (SNCAP) and those of NHTSA's newly proposed side impact test protocol. Evenflo also advertises side impact testing both on the carton and on the car seat itself, so parents are aware of the level of test that are designed to keep kids safe.  Since studies indicate that approximately 25% of Motor Vehicle Accidents involve a side impact component, parents can rest assure Evenflo’s car seats are designed outperform.
Isn't it great to know that Evenflo has been doing this for such a long time? For those in an Evenflo car seat rest assured that you are in one of the best!

  1. I hear nothing but good things about Evenflo products and yes, it is shocking to hear that this day in age, many car seat manufacturers don't do side collision tests. What the heck?

  2. Luckily I don't need car seats like this anymore but I do need boosters for my grandchildren. I have always purchased Evenflo products when my kids were younger. I am glad to see they have kept up with the quality of their products.

  16. This looks like a very cushy and safe car seat. Car seats sure have come a long way. Hard to imagine that there was a time in our history where they were not required. Glad that changed!

  17. we love a good car seat. i bet it's lots more comfy than what i rode in as a kid in 1974-77!

  18. You'd think that they'd all be scrambling over each other to DO those side impact tests. That would really show how safe the seats are. It's reassuring to know that Evenflo does!

  19. I like this brand, it's know for safety!

  20. This seat is high on our list of seats to try. I have FOUR Graco seats right now, and the buckles get stuck on every single one of them. Maybe Evenflo is the right seat for us?

  21. While I don't need car seats anymore, it is good to learn about good ones so I can share the information with friends who are in need.

  22. Car seats are so important for our little ones safety and I always find it shocking that some are not fully tested. I like that Evenflo is putting so much testing into their products! As a parent that is the type of company I am willing to put my money into and stand behind. Thanks for sharing this great info and I hope it encourages parents to really look into their carseat purchases more carefully

  24. what a great car seat my son is to old for one now but this is a cool one you have pictures. i also think more testing should be done even though as I said my son is no longer in a car seat iwould hope for the safety of other children car seat makers would take more care.

  25. It's insane that they don't test many car seats before putting them out on the market. This is definitely something I'll have to look back on for my future parenting.

  26. This is a really nice car seat. I wish I would have had a fancy one like this with my kids.

  27. My youngest is 11 & all of my boys used Evenflo cars seats & boosters. Never had any problems with them :)

  28. I find it shocking that the seats we trust our kiddos in ... aren't even tested PRIOR to sales! I need to go through my kids' carseats and do some major thinning out! We have hand-me-down (never been in accidents) seats from cousins and friends. I wish we could afford something like this!
