Why We Like It: The Evenflo Tribute LX Convertible Car Seat has a lot of unique features that make it the right seat for many types of families. The small size and weight of this seat make it great for people who are on-the-go, while still meeting all federal safety regulations. This seat also has a low price point, making it a good choice for families on a budget.

What do we like about the Tribute? For starters, the seat’s small size (less than 10 pounds) means you’ll have no trouble hauling it around or moving it between vehicles. This convertible car seat clocks in at several pounds lighter than many traditional baby carriers, making it a good option if you’re looking for something lighter for your newborn.

Another perk of the smaller seat size is that it can fit well into compact cars. This means families with smaller cars or traveling families (think rental cars) won’t have to worry about their mode of transportation being too small. The lighter weight also makes it a good choice for carrying through airports. And with a width of only 17 inches, it’s a good way to fit more than one car seat on a row (twins anyone?).

Despite the small size of the seat, the Tribute still has the ability to support children up to 40 lbs. and 40 inches, meaning it can likely be used until preschool. Children can even remain rear-facing until 30 lbs., earning it additional marks for long-term safe positioning.

The Tribute LX has more of a focus on luxury than other Tribute car seat models. Harness pads, a cup holder and body and head pillows have been added for your child’s comfort and can be especially handy if you are using the seat for a younger baby.

Beyond meeting all safety requirements, this seat also met Evenflo’s Side Impact Test Standard for Structural Integrity, a program that uses forces that are twice that of federal safety standards.

Cons: Like most car seats in the lower price range, the Tribute LX is not as simple and quick to install as some pricier models. Parents do, however, have the option of choosing between belt and LATCH installation. Most parents didn’t mind the extra set up time when you factor in the quality and low price point of this seat.

Overall, the Evenflo Tribute LX is a good convertible car seat option for parents who want something affordable and lightweight that takes up very little space. It’s a great seat for people with small cars, or for parents that travel or move their car seat between vehicles.
