There’s a new name in infant car seats that’s recently been on the lips of parents in the know: the much anticipated Cybex Aton. Designed by a German manufacturer, the car seat won a large number of European awards for its design and safety. As parents anxiously anticipated the arrival of the car seat here, rumors began that the Cybex Aton may only be available in the United States for a limited amount of time. By the time it was announced that the infant seat would be a permanent offering in the U.S., the Cybex Aton already had quite a reputation, and for good reason: its intuitive design makes it an incredibly safe, but still highly attractive car seat option.
The Cybex Aton car seat is designed to comfortably and safely seat babies 4 to 32 pounds in weight who are 30 inches tall and under. The car seat comes in six beautiful colors: Purple Potion, Lipstick red, Eclipse gray, Coffee brown, Moonlight blue and Shadow black.
When comparing the new Cybex Aton to other popular infant car seats, you’ll find that it’s a standout choice in four areas:
- The installation of the Cybex Aton is incredibly easy, thanks to a tensioning belt system that allows for a perfect, safe fit, even if you don’t use the car seat in a LATCH vehicle.
- The ease of lifting and carrying the Cybex Aton surpasses many other car seat styles. The unit weighs just 7.5 pounds, causing less strain in your arms. The handle has positions for resting, carrying and storage, so that you can get the perfect grip while on the move and still be able to easily lift Baby out of the seat and make the car seat more compact for storing in tight spaces.
- The compatible frame of the Cybex Aton allows it to fit in Maxi Cosi infant seat adapters in strollers as well as in Cybex strollers
- The design of the car seat is incredibly appealing. The features and functionality of this smart car seat in no way attract from its appearance.
