2018 Nuna® RAVA™ Convertible Car Seat (includes 2 Cup Holders)

(4 reviews) Write a Review

As we know, the #1 reason by a wide margin for car seat related injuries is poor or inadequate seat installation. As a result, with the RAVA, Nuna set out to do something great.. unconquered... thoughtful and incredibly helpful for parents and their precious ones. A car seat designed with simply secure installation. Welcome, RAVA.

The RAVA convertible car seat is Nuna's modern marvel, we may say. They've simplified installation in a way that we, and for that matter, no other car seat brand, has ever imagined.

Its straight-forward setup is impressive, hassle-free, muscle-free and bubble free. The car seat's true tension™ doors allow you to ensure an ultra secure fit without the common struggles related to most car seat installations. The consistent set of installation instructions enable installing with confidence every time. The car seat's recline angle guides clearly indicate the perfect angle for riding.

Nuna's recommended and preferred installation method for the RAVA is by use of the vehicle seat belt. With the vehicle belt, RAVA's design helps to eliminate confusion related to switching from lower anchors to vehicle seat belt. With the belt, the RAVA fits more vehicle makes and more seating positions.

Here's another piece of good news for parents. The RAVA may be used from 5 lbs. to 65 pounds (and 49 inches or less). And converting from rear-facing to forward-facing is no big deal, quite simple to convert thanks to its practical design and convertibility. In rear-facing mode, the RAVA can be used from 5 to 50 lbs., and 49 inches or less, allowing you to use the seat up to 2 years of age. Simply switch to forward facing mode for 25-65 lbs., and 49 inches or less, enabling your child to use the seat at 2 years of age or older.

Like the seat itself, the safety features built into the car seat are both comprehensive and practical. The RAVA seat is built with an all-steel frame and reinforced belt path for superior protection. The seat's side impact protection is of another level, with energy absorbing foam and SIP pods built into the seat. The 5-point no-rethread harness works effortlessly with one hand to fit your growing little gems for maximum security. The colored belt path indicators help reduce common cases of oversight and errors during installation and use. And the tether strap is designed for significant reduction of head and other injuries.

The RAVA is incredibly spacious. Built with extra support for young and older riders, your precious one will enjoy up to two inches of extra legroom in rear-facing mode and extra support in forward facing mode. The infant head and body supports are removable as your Baby grows, and the no-rethread 2-position crotch strap adjusts seamlessly with your growing child. The easy, one-hand adjustable 10 position head support creates the ultimate riding comfort for your young rider. And the 10-position recline makes for an ultimately comfortable and relaxing ride, for both around-town and out-of-town travels.

The seat is also designed with breathable knit fabric and ventilation panels within the shell for ultimate comfort and breeze, especially for those long trips. And we can't forget about Mom and Dad's comfort and care. The fabric is easily removable and machine washable, helping to keep the RAVA, your child and your car clean and mess-free. 

As if the safety features, comfortable design, and sensibly architected installation are not enough, the seat is also incredibly stylish and chic. With dual flip-open cup holders that hide away when not in use, the RAVA is available in these stylish fashions, including:

  • Caviar
  • Slate
  • Blackberry
  • Berry
  • Indigo

Specifications of the Rava car seat:

  • Rear-facing from 5-50 lbs., 49 inches or less, with suggested usage up to 2 years of age
  • Forward facing from 25-65 lbs., 49 inches or less, with suggested usage 2 years or older

    Great car seat!

    This is a wonderful car seat, we are very impressed with the quality of fabrics and design. We were previously using a britax boulevard click tight which we really liked but our son was staying very hot in his carseat. The fabrics used in the rava combined with cup holders, easy installation and a higher rear facing weight limit with the extra leg room has made this an amazing upgrade to our britax. Every feature on this car seat has been well thought out and made to high standards, even little things make such a big difference like how smoothly the height adjusts or the ability to change the incline without having to move the seat once it is installed rear facing. Just in case anyone was wondering the caviar color is gorgeous, it's a beautiful black fabric with very dark charcoal accents.

    We desperately needed an upgrade from our Britax infant seat, due to being cramped. Our daughter is only at 14lbs, but was no longer comfortable. We spend a lot of time traveling, so we needed something bigger. After plenty of research, I decided to purchase the Rava for its safety features, the easy installation, ability to grow with our daughter. I would highly recommend this seat!
