Best Narrow Infant Car Seats 2024: Full Comparison!

Posted in Chicco, Clek, Infant Car Seats, Nuna, UPPAbaby

When choosing a car seat for a small car, it's really a priority that it should be as narrow as possible. Infant car seats don’t vary that much in their width. 16.5 inches wide is the narrower end, while over 18 isn’t considered that slim anymore. Here are some car seats we have that fall into that narrow range. 

Clek Liing

The Clek Liing is the narrowest of them all. It weighs just 9 pounds, and at 16.9 inches wide, it really doesn’t take up much space in your car. The Liing has an adjustable recline with 7 positions, so you can ensure the proper recline angle no matter how sloped or how flat the seat in the vehicle might be. And yes, you can even adjust the recline after you’ve installed the base! The energy absorbing metal load leg offers unprecedented stability. Priced at $459.99, this is the narrowest solution of them all. 

UPPAbaby Mesa Max

The UPPAbaby Mesa Max is another option. It has a load leg, for optimal safety purposes. There’s also a carry handle, which has a 4th rebound position. The Mesa Max is 17” wide. It has a canopy with max coverage, an anti-rebound bar on the front of the base, and a 4-position handle that also works as an anti-rebound bar. Priced at $399-$429, the MESA Max car seat from UPPAbaby is another top option. 

Chicco Keyfit 30

Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat weighs 9.5 pounds, and is very easy to work with. The carrier shell has EPS-energy absorbing foam. The Chicco Keyfit is extremely affordable, and is designed to be so easy to install. With a cost of just $229, this is such an affordable option! 

Pipa Lite RX

We chose this car seat out of all the PIPA Lite infant car seat options because it’s super light, and it can be used with or without a base. The PIPA Lite RX comes in a bunch of color options, and is so sleek and well-designed. The price tag of $450.00 isn’t cheap, but it is worth the price. Shop now!

Whether you have a small car, this isn't your first kid and you're getting short on space, or if you just had twins so you don't want to waste any room in your back seat, a narrow car seat is always a great option. You can find narrow car seats with all the features you need. The only difference between these and other infant car seats? More space in your vehicle! Now's the time to choose one of these narrow infant car seats for your car.
