ABC Expo 2013: What’s New From Recaro – Guardia Infant Seat & Urbanlife Stroller Preview


At last year’s ABC show, Recaro promised that we’d see an infant seat by the next ABC show – and they delivered on that promise! Plus, they had a really cool stroller to go with it. Both the infant seat and the stroller models we saw were prototypes and the final production models should be available here in the U.S. sometime in 2nd qtr 2014. They’re working on Canada too but didn’t have an ETA for availability there yet. We’ll keep you posted when we have more details on that to share.

Recaro Guardia Infant Seat (prototype pictured):

  • 4-35 lbs
  • No rethread harness
  • Unique macro & micro adjustment features on base
  • ETA 2nd qtr 2014
  • Expected MSRP $250

Vivo booster has been discontinued so if you love the Vivo or anticipate needing one in the future – grab one now while they’re still available! Vivo will be replaced by Performance Booster XL which is a Performance Booster minus the LATCH attachments and possibly some other differences too.

New Performance BOOSTER (already available – see our Performance BOOSTER Review here)
