IIHS Best Booster Seats of 2017

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK, NY (WENY) -- The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is out with its list of the best booster seats for keeping children safe inside vehicles.

Thirteen out of 16 new booster seat models sold in 2017 have earned the IIIHS's highest rating.

The Cosco Fiinale and the backless Chicco GoFit, along with the Maxi-Cosi RodiFix and Diono Monterey XT booster seats are among those awarded the top rating.

Three other seats, the Harmony Folding Travel booster, the Kiddy Cruiser 3 and the Ride Safer Delighter were rated "check fit". Meaning the seat will provide good belt fit for some kids in some vehicles.

The 2017 best bet booster seats range in price from about $40.00 to $250.00.  
 
The IIHS recommends children use booster seats until safety belts fit properly, regardless of their age. That means some kids will be safer in booster seats until they're as old as 12.  

Only one booster seat, the Safety 1st Summit 65 was rated "Not Recommended."
