Evenflo LiteMax 35: Full Product Review

Written By: Samantha Wood

Our review of the Evenflo LiteMax 35 infant car seat is still in progress. I’ve used it every day with my 6 months old son for three months now and will have a final review soon. But we already like what we see.

It is, without a doubt, the best infant car seat under $200 on the market today. Evenflo’s infant car seat comes with a lot of the same features than the more expensive seats that we’ve reviewed.

If you can stretch your budget, you should take a look at our list of the best infant car seats available today, however. The Evenflo is a great affordable car seat, but there are better options available on the market.

As this is a preliminary review, we will continue using the Evenflo LiteMax 35 for another few months before fully wrapping our feedback. You can also take a look at the excellent reviews the seat is getting on Amazon here.

Our Rating: 9.1 / 10

Evenflo LiteMax 35 Summary

We like:

We don’t like:

  • Not very comfortable for baby.
  • The LATCH clips on the base are hard to attach.
  • Materials and fabric feel cheap to the touch.

Who is it for:

The Evenflo LiteMax 35 is a good option if you need a lightweight car seat under $200 for short trips. It’s safe and good value but the fabric and lack of padding aren’t comfortable for extensive use.
