Elegant Design, Premium Safety: Why We Love Nuna RAVA Convertible Car Seats

Searching for a beautiful, premium car seat that offers unparalleled protection for your little one? Meet the Nuna RAVA convertible car seat. This gorgeous convertible car seat combines luxurious design with the premium safety features Nuna is famous for. It’s also earth-friendly and highly practical. Here’s a closer look at what we love about the Nuna RAVA.


Gorgeous Design 

One of our favorite features is that every Nuna car seat is now completely flame-retardant free (“FR-free”). While many manufacturers can only meet flammability requirements by treating their fabrics with ultra-toxic flame retardant chemicals, Nuna achieves those standards by utilizing high-quality materials that are naturally flame-resistant (typically a wool blend). 

The Nuna Rava flame retardant-free convertible car seat is available in a variety of colors to suit your preferences or match your vehicle interior (we love the pretty gray Nuna Rava Oxford convertible car seat). In 2022, Nuna upped their game even further by creating the Riveted collection, pairing deep neutral colors with accent splashes, adding bronze and copper notes to lend unique signatures to a timeless fashion. The Riveted design style strikes a balance between hard and soft, edgy and sweet. 


Premium Safety Features

Nuna RAVA convertible car seats are steel-reinforced, which makes them fairly heavy (weighing just over 27 lbs.). That heavy-weight steel makes these seats incredibly safe in the event of a crash, but it might not make it an ideal choice for parents who have to regularly move the car seat to a different vehicle. The Rava also features energy absorbing foam and side impact protection (SIP) pods take side impact safety to the next level.


Breathing clean air is essential for your little one’s health. Eliminating sources of chemical emissions is the most effective way to reduce indoor air pollution according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. As part of their commitment to mindful manufacturing, the Nuna RAVA convertible car seat meets the standards for GREENGUARD GOLD certification. That means it’s been thoroughly tested and certified to meet stringent emissions standards for over 360 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and chemical emissions.

Easy Installation

The Nuna Rava utilizes advanced safety technology called “Simply Secure” to make installation swift, secure and straightforward. Like any other car seat, the RAVA has LATCH connectors, but Nuna encourages parents to use the seat belt for installation. One of the main reasons for this is that LATCH has a weight limitation (weight of your car seat + child’s weight) that many parents aren’t aware of or don’t know how to properly calculate. Fortunately, Nuna has made it very simple for parents to use the seat belt for installation:

  1. Reveal and open the “true tension door.” Simply pull back the seat fabric to access.
  2. Buckle vehicle seat belt. Thread the seat belt through.
  3. Press down on true tension door. Just close the hatch door to secure the seatbelt.

It’s that simple!

Extra Leg Room

The Nuna Rava convertible car seat allows you to keep your child rear-facing up to a whopping 50 lbs! It features a flip-out panel that gives you additional legroom, if needed.

Other Features We Love

Nuna RAVA convertible car seats have a number of other features that make this seat a breeze to use.

  • 10 recline positions
  • a smooth “no re-thread harness” with 10 height positions and 2 positions for the crotch strap
  • collapsible cup holders (ideal for caregivers who need to save space in the back seat for other car seats or passengers)
  • easy to clean, machine-washable fabric
  • aircraft certified to travel everywhere and beyond



What Other Parents Are Saying About Nuna RAVA Convertible Car Seats

Here’s what other parents are saying about this gorgeous car seat:

“I always loved nuna products and trust it a whole lot. My 2 year old daughter loves her car seat no fussiness from her. Very sturdy and feels comfy not like the other car seats brand . I would so recommend it ! Nuna is my trusted brand for me and my family.”

“I love this since it very stable and very comfortable. It also come with the cup holder. Can use for a long time since it has different stages to change from laying down to sit up straight. All in one. Recommend it.”

“With 2 boys, I have gone through 5 different car seats trying to find the best. Nuna won! I wanted something with a simple, modern design, but safety came before all! I was rear-ended, and the car seat was in perfect condition still despite being hit at high speed (still replaced it of course)! So it’s more than looks, it’s seriously the best!”

The Verdict

It also offers extended leg room, making it perfect to allow your child to sit rear facing longer. It’s earth-friendly, free of harmful chemicals, and features a gorgeous design.
