One of the most important purchases you'll make as new parents is a car seat. With so many on the market it can be quite daunting. Some children go through three car seats in their early years, an infant capsule, convertible car seat and a booster seat. But what if there was one car seat that did it all.
In this Blog Post I'll run through the similarities of the Nuna Rava and the Nuna Exec. The Pro's and Con's of both seats.
You can make the informed decision on which seat is best for you and your family.
What do the Nuna Rava and the Nuna Exec have in common?
Both seats are suitable from birth and have included infant inserts which can be used for babies as small as 5lbs.
Other similar features:
Bamboo-polyester blend knit fabric
Dual flip-open cup holders
Energy absorbing foam and side impact protection!
Flame retardant free
GREENGUARD GOLD certified
Fits 3 across in most midsized vehicles
FAA aircraft-certified (when used with the harness system)
Another great feature for both seats is, they both come with the built in integrated base. Making installation easy and quick. The preferred installation method for both the Rava and the Exec is with the vehicle own seat belt rather than the LATCH system. This takes out any confusion as to when to switch later on.
Now it's time to see what makes each seat unique. The Rava is our most popular seat in the Nuna range. It's not hard to see why. Read through some of our customer reviews to see for yourself. Link here
The RAVA™ car seat is our most popular car seat in our car seat line. The RAVA™ includes 10 headrest positions, 10 recline positions (5 rear facing and 5 forward facing), a one-position calf support that provides a 2-inch extendable leg rest, and harness buckle keepers on each side that hold the harness straps.
The EXEC™ offers 12 head rest positions, 8 recline angles (4 rear facing and 4 forward facing), a 2.5 inch extendable leg rest, an anti-rebound panel, and magnetic harness keeper to hold the harness straps. The EXEC™ also comes with a merino wool infant insert, a quilted leg rest slip cover, and an additional GOTS™ certified organic cotton infant insert and harness covers.
The Nuna Exec can be used longer than the Nuna Rava which explains the high price. I sometimes refer to it as the First Class of travel and the Rava is business class. Both you would agree are amazing.
The Rava is going to see you through from newborn 5lbs to 29kg and 49 inches which is around 120cm. The reason I love the Rava is the long use of the harness as your little one grows. You'll be in no doubt that they're seated correctly as they get older. To give you an idea of age to weight and height, an average 8 year old would weigh less than 30kg and be around 120cm.
Now the Exec can also see you through from newborn 5lbs and can forward face with the harness until 29kg and 49 inches but then you can switch to booster seat mode, using the belt positioning until they are 120lbs (54kgs) 57 inches which is around 145cm. Between 10 and 11 years old.
Both the Rava and the Exec come in a range of different colours. We have chosen to sell the two popular colours. Caviar and Granite.
Smart temperature regulation
New for 2023, the Nuna RAVA is now one of the only convertible car seats on the market that uses a naturally fire-resistant bamboo/polyester fabric instead of fabrics treated with flame-retardant chemicals. Bamboo also helps regulate your child's body temperature, keeping her cooler in warm weather and warmer in cool weather—all while being super-soft, antibacterial, and hypoallergenic.
Features we love in the Nuna Exec:
All-in-one car seat converts from rear-facing to forward-facing to booster mode
Fits three across in most midsize vehicles
Aeroflex™ side impact protection system
Dual flip-open cupholders
Magnetic harness keepers
Spring touch shoulder belt guides aid in proper belt routing for big kids
Adjustable leg rest
Simply™ secure installation
Included with EXEC purchase- Dual flip open cupholders, machine washable quilted leg rest slipcover, Merino wool baby and head inserts and additional GOTS™ certified organic cotton fabric & dye insert, harness covers & crotch cover.
Our two most popular colours are the Granite and the Caviar.
