UPDATE: October 2018
UPPAbaby has revealed some information on their upcoming UPPAbaby Knox car seat, which will hit the market in summer 2019.
The KNOX is UPPAbaby’s first adjustable car seat that changes direction from rear-facing to front-facing when the time comes. Designed as an upgrade from the MESA infant car seat, it comes with UPPAbaby’s patented SMARTSecure locking system. It has a light that turns from red to green when the connectors are correctly attached to the base. A stabilizing nine-position harness connects to the seat, and it moves as you re-position the headrest. This movement keeps your baby comfortable during short car rides or long journeys. You can also adjust it easily as your baby grows.
The UPPAbaby KNOX car seat comes with complete protection against car crashes with a Universal Tether, Energy Response Headrest, and SMART SIP Absorbing Pods. A Universal Tether keeps the seat from flying forward during accidents to the front and rear of your vehicle. This helps avoid neck and head injuries during impact. Memory foam and EPP foam lines the Energy Response Headrest for shock absorption after a side collision. SMART Sip absorbent pods on the sides also diffuse impact during a side crash.
Adding variety to their line of products, UPPAbaby’s KNOX car seat will be available in four different color schemes:
- Jordan – charcoal black mélange with a citron accent. This model will be made of a fire-resistant Merino wool.
- Bryce – white and grey marl
- Jake – black mélange
- Lucca – teal mélange
The minimum weight limit for the KNOX is fourteen pounds. If you are expecting, purchasing the KNOX eliminates the need for an infant seat. It has an infant extension available that attaches directly to the seat. This add-on has more head support for your infant. With these adjustments, UPPAbaby’s newest car seat truly does grow with your child, protecting them during travel from infancy until early childhood.

In business for over thirty years, UPPAbaby has innovated products on the baby market. The husband and wife team that created the company both have experience in sales and product development. Their family life inspires them in their designs that focus on strollers, car seats, and accessories. UPPAbaby challenges the idea that these baby products are bulky and cumbersome. The company uses the newest technology to make lightweight, safe, and useful merchandise selections, keeping both parents and babies happy. UPPAbaby products are a hit among celebrities, and they have won multiple safety awards.
Since the company prides itself on innovation, we assume that the UPPAbaby Knox Car Seat will rival its other best-selling car seat, the UPPAbaby MESA. According to the National Highway Safety Commision, parents do not install 75% of car seats correctly. Designed with their patented SMARTSecure system, the MESA’s retractable connectors have an indicator that changes from red to green as the car seat connects securely to the base. This UPPAbaby car seat’s upholstery is fire-resistant Merino Wool, a breathable material that keeps your baby comfortable. EPP foam in the adjustable headrest with side impact protection is durable and flexible and keeps the head secure. The MESA also attaches to your UPPAbaby VISTA or UPPAbaby CRUZ stroller, making travel even easier.
The MESA has an NHTSA five-star rating for safety and ease of use. We can only assume that the UPPAbaby Knox will have the same level of protection for your baby. Keep checking back to our site for our full review, coming soon.
