“Nice feel” of materials and added safety features – The Peg Perego Primo Viaggio 4 35 Infant Car Seat is not just a safe infant car seat but also comes with design and upholstery that can be considered world-class. This rear-facing infant car seat for babies between 4 and 35 pounds and up to 32 inches tall is proudly Italian-made.
Let’s see if this is the seat you are looking for.
|Rear-Facing Weight:||4-35 pounds|
|Height Limit:||Up to 32 inches|
Will It Fit In My Car?
|Do I need to use a pool noodle/rolled towel?||No|
|Easy To Install?||Yes|
|Easy To Uninstall?||Yes|
Peg Perego has designed the Primo Viaggio infant car seat to be easily installed, either with a base or without it. Parents may choose between using the LATCH straps or the car seat belt.
It doesn’t matter which one is used, as both offer the same level of safety and security for the baby passenger. The “Right Tight System” allows for easy and secure locking of the base.

You can also attach the car seat carrier without the base. Parents who have difficulty in doing so should follow this video for easy installation using the car’s seatbelt.
There is an “Infinite Recline” system that allows parents to recline the car seat to a multitude of positions. There’s a “Tri-Zone Level Indicator” as well to help parents find the appropriate seat angle for the baby’s size.
|Country Of Origin:||Italy|
|Side Impact Tested:||Yes|
|Approved For Airplane Use:||Yes|
|Easy To Buckle And Unbuckle?||Yes|
Should there be any impact collision, the seat has an EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene) foam that is energy-absorbing. It is located in the shell, and the head panel as added protection for your baby’s head and torso.
There are two soft, breathable fabric cushions to choose from. Both are designed to ensure your child’s head is correctly positioned.
The first cushion system is for preemies and infants weighing at least 4 pounds. It provides support at the neck and bottom position.
The other cushion system is designed to deliver support for bigger babies. They are both intended to protect your baby’s shoulders too at any growth stage.
The seat base also has a built-in anti-rebound bar for added protection should there be a rear collision. Not many seats have this added feature yet.
|Is The Material Breathable?||Yes|
|Seat Weight:||9.5 pounds|
|Machine Washable Cover?||Yes|
|Comes With An Infant Body Support?||Yes|
|Easy To Remove Cover?||Yes|
|Shoulder Harness Has Pads?||Yes|
The side impact protection makes it easier to adjust seat positioning to six different positions without having to re-thread or remove the seat fabric.
You can adjust the seat even with the baby in it.
It Has Built-in Elastic Straps.
Not many seats have built-in elastic straps to hold the harness out of the way when you’re placing the infant in the seat.
It definitely makes it easier to buckle your baby up because the harness is neatly out of the way, therefore, reducing the time you need to dig for it.
The seat fitting straps are useful for tucking in the car seat’s harness so that your baby can sit comfortably.
It Is Comfortable For The Baby.
The six different positions to choose from ensure the best fit for your child’s comfort.
The Primo Viaggio Infant Car Seat also has an adjustable and removable, large hood with UPF 50+ protection to shield your child from the sun’s rays.
And best of all, the materials used for the seat are of top quality, has an excellent touch and feel, and will not make your child overheat.
One downside with this seat is that the canopy can get in the way of the handle when in the “carry” position. One solution for ease of carrying it around is to either put the canopy all the way up or all the way down.

One thing I like about this seat is the non-rethread harness. A lot of infant car seats would need you to manually remove the harness and re-feed them to the appropriate slot before you can adjust the harness height. The Peg Perego harness adjustment can be found behind the seat. You just have to move it up and down to give your child more room height-wise as they grow.
The ease of installation by SEAT BELT (without the base) seems to be way easier than by using the LATCH. If I am getting this seat, I’d just probably use the car’s seatbelt to avoid pulling any muscle trying to tighten the base by the LATCH.
One thing I worry about is the seat weight. 9.5 pounds is not very easy to carry using your bare hands especially as your child grows heavier. Peg Perego compatible strollers are not the CHEAPEST, and some of the compatible strollers from other brands will still need you to purchase an adapter, which again will add to the cost.
If this is the car seat you are eyeing to get for your little one, I suggest putting it on your baby registry as it can cost you an arm and a leg.
One consolation I probably can say for getting this expensive car seat is that it won’t expire so fast. It has seven years of life which means your child’s siblings (or cousins) can reuse it.
One of the best things about this infant car seat is that the manufacturers did not sacrifice functionality and safety features over design. If this is your primary concern, you will certainly be happy with this so-called “Ferrari” of the infant car seats.
What makes it a worthy investment is knowing your child is EXTRA safe with all the added extra protection feature. Remember, though, all these safety features are useless unless you install the seat correctly.
The higher price tag attached to this model may be a little impractical for most parents. But if the money is not a problem and you are all for your baby’s comfort and extra protection, by all means, consider this seat.
I highly suggest that you check out the feedbacks of parents who got this seat to help you decide further.
