The First Years Via Infant Seat I470- Elegance Review










Next up in the Car Seat Safety Series I bring to you The First Years Via Infant Seats I470- Elegance




Since Party of 5 doesn't have any infant in the house, nor do we have ANY plans too, little Dollie was used for photos!




The Via I470 Infant car seat has been awarded a Five Star Ease of Use Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Via joins the line of True Fit convertibles and the Compass and Pathway booster seats to round out a full assortment of Five Star Rated seats. Remember, a seat that is easier to use is less likely to be misused. Look for the Five Star rating on all of our children's car seats!
For use from 5 to 35lbs with the base, the Via features double-wall construction for extra support. The patented one-hand easy-to-adjust five-point harness means you never need to rethread, ever, making it one of the easiest seats to use. The Via offers one of the deepest shells in the market and is side impact tested to International standards.
The patented Rebound Energy Management handle helps manage the energy in the event of a crash, and the innovative comfort carry handle with oversized elbow padding makes it easier to carry. The exclusive Information frame handle provides a secure spot for all that important contact information. Built-in lock-offs and color-coded belt paths make installation easier. The Via comes with a stay-in-the-car seat base. And, the Via also works with The First Years' Wave, Indigo and Wisp strollers.
The Via features include:

  • double-wall construction





  • no rethread, easy one-hand adjust harness








  • easy-off pad





  • side-impact tested to International standards





  • side angle indicator





  • built-in lock-offs





  • LATCH system





  • color-coded belt paths





  • larger interior dimensions





  • easy release from base on seat






  • As you can see, little Dollie is nicely secure in her infant seat. Her harness is at shoulder level and her chest strap is at armpit level :)

    Nicely padded straps for extra comfort not to mention a guide to show you where to place the chest  piece

    5 star rating for infants 5-35lbs!

    Level shows you that the seat is properly installed

    No thread tether!! and the lock offs

    such a great idea for those that are in daycare! Never loose your car seat again





    Party of 5 gives The First Years Via Infant Seat in Elegance 5 stars!! The seat is not at all heavy { we only had a doll in it }and the handle is really comfy.

    Not to mention all of the safety ratings this seat has! If you are in the market for an infant seat I suggest you look no further than The First Years Via Infant seat!


    The First Years Via Infant Seat in Elegance can be found at Amazon.com for about $170!
