Evenflo Platinum Symphony DLX All-In-One Car Seat Review #EvenfloPlatinum

Evenflo is well known for all their baby products. So when I was given the opportunity to review their new Evenflo Platinum Protection Series car seats, I was very excited.

While I received the Symphony DLX All in One Car Seat for review, The Evenflo Platinum Protection Series features four models: The Symphony DLX, The Symphony LX car seat, Securekid DLX booster seat and Triumph LX car seat.

Installing was easy for my husband especially since we had the lower anchor bar it was 1..2..3 done. The manual that comes with the car seat is helpful and easy to read with instructions on how to place the car seat with the seat belt (in case you don't have the lower anchor bar).

The Advanced latch technology gives extra security knowing the car seat is securely placed by pushing down to hear and feel the seat tighten.

Over the weekend I used the Symphony DLX Car Seat during a road trip to Woodloch Resort in Pennsylvania. During the drive there my son very comfortable and slept most of the way.

I was surprised since many times while traveling, my son would be fussy during the ride for being to warm and sweaty. I would have to open a window or open his jacket to help cool him off. Then when I took him out his car seat I would feel his whole back moist from sweat.

But this time when we arrived and I removed him from the car seat his back was dry with no sweat!

This is because of the Symphony DLX has Temperature Regulating Fabric that keeps babies comfortable during hot and cold weather. The fabric is NASA-developed Outlast, which is the same fabric used on spaced suits which balance the temperature by actively absorbing and storing hot and cold temperatures and releasing them as needed.

This feature is major plus for children who sweats a lot.

The Platinum Symphony DLX All-In-One Car Seat also features:
  • Buckle Pockets that neatly and smartly tuck the buckle tongues away — making it easier and safer to get a child in and out of the seat. No more digging around for lost buckles or hot buckle tongues during warm weather that can burn your child.
  • e3 Side Impact Protection significantly reduces the forces in side impact crashes through advanced energy absorption and an expanded zone of protection.
  • Infinite Slide™ Harness Provides an easy, safe, accurate fit and eliminates any need for harness re-threading as your child grows
  • Upfront Harness Adjustment Easily adjust the 5-point harness from the front of the car seat, making it easier to get your child in and out.
  • All-In-One Car Seat An all in one car seat fitting children from 5 to 110lbs. The 65 lb. internal harness weight rating accommodates growing children longer.
  • Upfront Multi-Position Recline Upfront multiple position recline for child’s comfort while asleep or awake.
  • Machine-Washable Pad Easy-off, machine-washable car seat pad requires no harness re-threading

Overall I think this is a great car seat with a lot of great features. However, it is very big with a high back. So if you don't have a child's mirror to attach, you wont be able to see the baby while driving. Also because of the size of the car seat, I don't recommend it for people with a small car or have more then 2 children due to space.

  2. That looks like a really comfy seat. And that special temperature fabric sounds great. My kids get really sweaty in their car seats sometimes - even when the AC is on!

  17. I just love how carseats have come along over the last few years, even since my princess was born and she is only 6; this seat looks awesome, save and comfy... Thanks for a great review; it's always a Must in my home to be in a seat (if you are still required to be in one) or buckled up before I even turn the car on; sooo important.
