Combi Coccoro Convertible Car Seat vs. Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat
To see how it stands up to a competitor, we compared the Combi Coccoro with the Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat. Both provide for an easy, secure installation and feature a one-pull harness tightener. The fabric of both conveniently can be removed and placed in the washing machine.
One big difference between the two models, however, is the NextFit Zip will likely last you longer, as it’s made for kids of up to 49 inches in height and 65 pounds in weight. This is in comparison to the Coccoro’s maximum height and weight of 40 inches and 40 pounds, respectively. On the flip side, the compact size of the Coccoro makes it better suited for small vehicles. While the NextFit Zip comes with a handy removable cup holder, the Coccoro does not include one.
Lorena Niemeyer's Combi Coccoro Convertible Car Seat Review
Some babies come into the world a little smaller than others. The Combi Coccoro is specifically for tinier babies. It is an expensive investment, but it does a good job of protecting your bundle of joy.
The Combi Coccora is both a forward and rear-facing convertible seat. It has a push-on LATCH system, which helps with the installation. It can sometimes be challenging to secure in the rear-facing position when you use your vehicle belt system. The installation of Combi Coccora in the forward-facing position is more effortless than rear-facing.

The Combi Coccoro's ease of use is straightforward enough. But, you have to be careful when you are changing the harness slots. The slots in the padding and shell have to match exactly. The weight limit - 3 to 40 pounds - is great for parents with smaller than average kids and premature infants.
We never expect a baby to come early, but it happens, and premies need a safe convertible car seat that is not so big it swallows them whole. It does not take up a bunch of room, either, leaving the backseat for passengers and siblings. The Combi Coccoro's design keeps them safe, sound, and comfortable, too.
