Performance BOOSTER High Back Booster Seat

The RECARO Performance BOOSTER is a High Back Belt Positioning Booster Car Seat that offers intelligent design and quality construction for a safe and comfortable ride. It incorporates RECARO Side Impact Protection technology, inspired by four decades of racing seat safety, and holds children from 30 to 120 pounds. Kid-approved comfort features include CoolMesh air ventilation for breathability, side impact protection foam air cushions, luxurious fabrics with an extra-soft seat cushion, comfort enhancing memory foam, cup holders with removable liners for easy cleaning and stylish trim details. The Performance BOOSTER was designed with safety features such as flexible LATCH connectors to secure the booster to your vehicle, racing-inspired Side Impact Protection, energy absorbing EPS foam, a QuickLift, 11-position head restraint and color-coded belt guides.

Racing-Inspired Side Impact Protection

Tested to international standards, the RECARO Performance BOOSTER offers a racing-inspired design that protects a child during a side impact incident. The car seat's enhanced side wings are designed to protect each of five vulnerable areas of a child including their head, neck, face, torso and pelvis. With an upper weight capacity of up to 120 pounds, the Performance BOOSTER offers one of the highest child occupant weight capacities available of any high-back, belt-positioning booster seat.

Assembled in the United States, the car seat meets all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for Child Restraint Systems (FMVSS 213) and Flammability of Interior Materials (FMVSS 302).

Performance Infused Fashions & Ergonomic Seats for Easy-Care Comfort

For no-fuss care and maintenance, the Performance BOOSTER car seat comes in a variety of easy-to-clean fabrics and colors. The luxurious, temperature balancing fabrics offer superior comfort and have a stylish design. The CoolMesh Air Ventilation provides an air circulation system that will keep your child cool and comfortable during a ride.

Featuring an ergonomic shell structure that offers support for your child’s body, the car seat is kid-approved for short errands or long road trips. The Performance BOOSTER features naturally contouring memory foam to make life more comfortable for your child. The car seat and head restraint are lined with expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) that absorbs external forces while providing your child ample protection and room for growth.

QuickLift Head Restraint, Belt Guides & Built-In LATCH System

To accommodate your growing child, an easy to adjust lever allows for quick and proper head restraint placement. Eleven head restraint positions ensure proper positioning of the child for optimized safety and comfort. The user-friendly belt guides are color coded to help you secure your child properly using your vehicle's safety belts.

Designed with push-button lower anchor attachments for added safety, the Performance BOOSTER is easy to secure to your vehicle. The flexible LATCH connectors anchor the seat to your vehicle preventing it from becoming a projectile when not in use. The car seat offers convenient storage pockets to keep the LATCH connectors neatly stored out of the way when not in use.

Color Name: Sapphire
We bought this to replace our Vivo after being in a car accident. Unfortunately, it wasn't for sale here yet as it had just come on the market, so we had to purchase it at the select retailer, but its the same seat in Sapphire. LOVELOVELOVE it!!! Negative? Its huge. Positive? It just really envelopes my 5 year old. He's so comfortable in it and the...not one, but TWO cup holders? Genius on their part. They also are removable cup holders so you can clean them when they inevitably get sticky whatever crud in them.

It is a little "trickier" IMO to get the seatbelt through the headrest than through the Vivo, but generally it doesn't get as twisted. The colored indicators under the arm rests are great for when you have another adult strapping them in so you can more easily verbally instruct them on how to properly strap them in. The head rest is adjustable, so lots of growing room. To be honest, it almost looks like a car seat, but it just seems so safe. His preschool teacher saw it on field trip day and goes "My gosh...could you have a bigger seat?!?"

He is so proud of his seat, it is never, EVER a problem getting him to ride in it. Its comfortable, easy to install, easy to strap them in. A great buy. So glad we got this. Definitely the silver lining to that car accident. I was so sad to see our nearly new looking Vivo (and ProSport) go away, but this (and the Performance Sport) makes up for it.


Two quick things to add - firstly, it has LATCH connectors - not the LATCH system. So it is not secured and tightened down like a carseat. It is NOT a defect, it is designed this way. Secondly, the manual does not come loose in the box - it comes in a pocket attached to the outside side of the seat for some "light" reading.

Color Name: Rose
I am in the market for 3 boosters - one for my husband's car, two for my van, for two soon-to-be 6-year-old girls. I have only ever used the Graco turbo booster for my oldest child, and wanted something that went taller, something with more protection to the sides, hopefully something that latched and something that was comfy for the child. I would love for it to come in pink, purple, and red - and I thought this seat was just about perfect.

Taking this seat strictly for what it is - it is quite comfortable for the child. The covers are spectacular - deep, vibrant colors and smooth, sturdy materials that won't get pilly or fuzzy over time. The side/back support is high enough that as you raise the headrest and the child grows, the child is still nicely enveloped at the back and sides, which I like both for comfort and because the seat doesn't develop quite such an odd "E.T." appearance as some as you raise the headrest. It certainly goes nice and tall - however, when I test it with my tall but thin ten year old, while the height is good (with room to spare), he is squished in the shoulders, which makes me wonder how useful the height will be over the long haul. I suspect you won't be able to use the seat anywhere near the full limits of its height. I like that it is symmetrical with two open cupholders which means that if you plan to use this seat outboard in the 3rd row of a minivan you won't be faced with a seat where one one of the storage options can't be used (which would happen with cubbies that slide in and out - ie the Affix). The cupholders have rubbery inserts that can be pulled out for easy cleaning. It fits both my very petite almost-6-year-old and her much sturdier twin very well.

What I don't like about this seat is how it plays with the car.

Color Name: Rose Verified Purchase
I wanted to love this seat. My daughter was comfortable, and it felt solid and well-made. However I noticed when making a tight turn into a parking space, the entire seat tilts. And not just a little. If straight up is 12 o'clock, the seat tilts to 10 o'clock or 2 o'clock. The belt stayed with her, but it's ridiculous. I looked it up online and found many other reports about this particular booster tilting while turning the car.

I have to send it back. For the record, this was in a 2011 Honda Accord.

Color Name: Vibe Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
If you're familiar with Recaro, you know they make well-respected racing seats. And that's what this seat looks like - a miniature racing seats. Just like their adult seats, they're built with safety in mind.

The first really nice thing I noted about this car seat is that it comes assembled. Aside from the rubber cup holders (which may have simply fallen out in shipping), there wasn't anything to click into place, screw in, or otherwise assemble. I picked it up and tossed it into the back seat of my 2010 Civic sedan, where it fit just fine. It's intended for children 30-120 lbs. and between 37 and 61 inches.

The seat looks particularly safe due to it's size. It is chunky and wide (22" in fact!) so securing the seat belt with your child in it is a bit more of a challenge than other narrower car seats I'm used to. In smaller cars like mine, this means you can forget about having a third seat in the middle.

The seat also comes with two LATCH clips, but they are simply there to secure the seat in the car when a child isn't riding in it. I understand the safety concern, as a loose, unmanned seat could become a projectile in a severe accident, but it takes away some of the utility of these seats. After all, one of the great benefits of your child graduating to a booster is the ability to quickly and easily remove it for use with taller passengers. It's important to note that these LATCH clips are NOT for child safety.

The headrest adjusts up and down to meet your child's needs, and the proper position is when the middle of the "wings" on the headrest are even with the ears on your child's head.
