Also known as the Adore AP, the Mother’s Choice Accord AP is a convertible car seat for newborns up to 4 years old.
This car seat has a headrest that features what Mother’s Choice calls AirProtect, which serves as both additional protection for your child in case of an accident as well as a soft cushion for your child to have a nap on while strapped in.
An in-built rebound bar protects your baby from the seat rebounding up against the car’s backrest.
In addition, the fabric is a new, wicking fabric which keeps your child cool and dry, particularly useful on hot summer days.
It also features ISOFix attachment points which make it easy to securely attach to the frame of your car.
The Quick Fit harness adjustment system is also useful in making it easy to adjust when your baby grows to be a little person.
At 45cm wide, it is also helpfully narrow for smaller vehicles and multiple seats in the rear.
At $299, it is a good value ISOFix enabled convertible car seat.
Pros and cons
+ High safety rating
+ ISOFIX attachments
+ Good value
– Headrest not forward/back adjustable
– Lacking features of top seats
The Mother’s Choice Accord AP is not the most expensive but it’s not the cheapest. ISOFIX and side impact protection are valuable benefits, and at 45cm wide is good for narrower cars. Good value but it doesn’t have some features of top car seats.
Who this is for:
You want a solid ISOFIX enabled convertible car seat.
