Maxi-Cosi Magellan Review

The Magellan has a lot of interesting features and is so well-padded that even the pickiest of passengers should find it comfortable.   Unfortunately, the number of installation challenges we faced along the way don’t put the Magellan at the top of our list for easy to use car seats.

We’d love to take a further look at the Ally 35 once the instructions in the manual are clarified.
