Our Review of the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat

Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 Infant Car Seat

The Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 infant car seat first joined the extensive Graco family of child restraints back in 2005. Since then it’s been through a few iterations, one of which was to lower the minimum weight range from 5 to 4 pounds to better fit preemies.

The newer seats also have a longer expiration (7 years instead of 6) to better allow for extended rear-riding (to 2 years old) according to the AAP’s recommendation. The ClickConnect technology was designed to make it easy to attach to both a base and stroller with one step.

It’s on the upper range in prices among the other Graco SnugRide models, but it’s still a pretty affordable seat compared to similar models of other brands. While not a huge investment for most families, you still want to get what you pay for.

Is the Graco SnugRide Click Connect 35 worth the investment, and is it a safe and reliable seat for your baby? Let’s break down the stats so you can decide for yourself.

Check out our detailed review of the Peg Perego Viaggio 4/35 infant car seat to see if it’s a good investment for your family

Peg Perego Viaggio 4/35 infant car seat

An updated version of the original, the Peg Perego Viaggio 4/35 now has a more modern look and a new base design. It’s pretty, but has a pretty hefty price tag. Other Peg Perego seats are usually highly rated and popular with parents.

You can understand why, considering this Italian manufacturer is well known for combining both style and function to create some of the safest and most stylish car seats on the market. It has a lot going for it, but will it stand up to our vigorous analysis?

What makes the Peg Perego Viaggio 4/35 stand out from the crowd?

One unique feature of this seat is an anti-rebound bar in BOTH carrier and base. In the carrier, the seat handle itself acts as the anti-rebound bar.

In the case of an impact, the anti-rebound bar acts sort of like a rollover cage in a race car, preventing rebound force. What is rebound force? Think of it as a secondary force after an initial impact. If you’re in a front impact, for instance, the rebound force will force your body or a car seat backwards.
