Evenflo Titan Sport
Evenflo has gained recognition in the baby care industry with its line of baby bottles, so making infant car seats is a logical progression for the manufacturer. The Titan Sport Convertible faces the rear for really young infants weighing five to 35 pounds, and then can be turned to face forward when seating older babies weighing 20 to 50 pounds. It has a five-point harness and four shoulder harness positions. The high harness slots and two buckle strap positions make it easier to buckle in a taller child.
Safety ranks high with Evenflo. The Titan Sport was designed and tested for structural integrity at energy levels twice the federal crash test standard. It also meets or exceeds federal motor vehicle safety standards as well as its own in-house side impact standards. It sells for $79 to $85.98. No recalls were detected, so we gave this car seat a high score.

The option to swivel this convertible seat around from rear-facing to forward-facing saves having to buy another car seat as the baby gets older.
The manufacturer is proactive in making sure the seat exceeds the federal safety standard.
The chest clip is cheap and difficult to use, some parents say.
