The Cosco Easy Elite multimode car seat is a cross between the long-lamented Alpha Omega/Alpha Omega Elite/ 3-in-1 car seat and the new, largely fantastic Grow and Go. This budget option retails for around $100 and has a lot of nice features as well as a few shortcomings.

Even lower priced options can be found in the comparison between the Cosco Scenera NEXT and Cosco Apt50.
