Cosco Scenera NEXT
The Cosco Scenera NEXT is simply a smarter car seat – designed for families who know what they need. It keeps kids safer with Side Impact Protection built into the headrest, and a 5-point harness that adjusts easily from the front of the seat. The harness features 5 heights and 3 buckle locations so you can be sure you’re giving the best fit to your growing child. And to fit your growing family (or the neighborhood car pool), the Scenera NEXT easily fits three across in the back seat.
If your chosen vehicle happens to be an airplane, the Scenera NEXT has got you covered. Certified for use on aircraft, it gives your child a familiar seat during the flight. The lightweight and compact design also get you through the airport without weighing you down.
With kids in the car, messes happen. Now, thanks to the easy-to-clean car seat pad, there’s no need to stress. The pad removes from the seat and are both machine washable and dryer safe. There’s also no more scrubbing goopy build-up from inside the cup holder; it’s dishwasher safe. For both seat pad and cup holder, a thorough wash is just a machine cycle away.
When using the Cosco Scenera NEXT outside the USA, you must use a seat belt locking clip (our taxi-friendly locking clip is the easiest). The US has different seat belts from the rest of the world and their seat belts have a second mode called 'child restraint mode' which firmly locks the seat belt in place. US car seats, like this Cosco Scenera NEXT, are designed to be used with a locked US seat belt, so when used with a European seat belt, such as in Singapore, a locking clip is mandatory. All seats sold by Taxi Baby include a locking clip for free.

This video is from the manufacturer of our taxi-friendly locking clip - they generically show how to install the handy little red clip on any car seat. The following video shows how to install the Cosco Scenera NEXT in a taxi OUTSIDE THE US. US vehicles have different seat belts from the rest of the world and if you're using the Cosco with a non-US seat belt, you absolutely need to use a locking clip. There may be situations where you want to use the ISOfix (LATCH) belt to install your seat instead of using the seat belt/locking clip combo. The following video from Cosco shows how.
The Cosco Scenera NEXT is compatible with strollers which feature a frame-style or strap-style universal car seat adapter. Examples include:
• Mountain Buggy Nano (eg. strap-style adapter)
• Baby Trend Snap-N-Go (eg. frame-style adapter)
UPPAbaby, Baby Jogger and Mountain Buggy make adapters for their strollers which are compatible with the Cosco Scenera NEXT. Many parents also choose to securely 'hack' their Cosco onto their stroller, either by nestling the car seat into the frame of the stroller (great for strollers with belly bars or rear facing stroller seats), or by securing the Cosco with a luggage strap. We've included photos of our customers' hacks (coming soon). Also, since the Cosco is ultralight (only 3kg), it's really easy to use with a shoulder strap.
Is it possible to install the Cosco Scenera NEXT forward facing?
It is possible to install the Scenera NEXT forward facing, but we don't recommend it because -
It's five times less safe for your child: rear facing seats have been shown to be 532% safer than their forward facing counterparts. Common misconceptions about rear facing travel include:
It's more difficult to install: the forward facing installation requires a tether strap be properly installed, to keep the seat from moving too far forward in an accident. This is an extra step compared to the rear facing installation.
You need to book a special taxi: Two-thirds of Singapore's taxi fleet have tether anchors to allow you to install your tether strap, so you will probably need to book ahead and make sure the responding vehicle has a tether anchor.
Can I use the Cosco Scenera NEXT on a plane?
The Cosco Scenera NEXT is FAA-approved and a wonderfully versatile, narrow, simple seat to travel with, both in and out of the plane. Each airline has their own very specific policy when it comes to using car seats onboard and even though the Cosco is airline approved, they may not allow it. Also, some airline staff/crew may not be completely familiar with their own policy so it pays to be prepared.
Here are some tips to a smoother trip when flying with your Cosco:
2. Print or save a screenshot of the relevant policy to show the cabin crew.
3. Email the airline's customer service to confirm you can use the Cosco onboard your flight, then print their confirmation email to show the cabin crew.
4. Familiarise yourself with how to install the car seat on a plane.
