Don't all infant car seats have that?

I just got an email from a company trying to sell me that car seat. They tout all the safety features but also take an entire paragraph to tell me about this new taxi feature. A feature that allows you to use the car seat in a vehicle without the base.

Umm I believe all infant car seats, at least here in the us, have the 'taxi feature'

Here's the paragraph that accompanied the picture



The City Go infant car seat provides a safe spot for baby to join in on your adventures from day one! It securely attaches to your favorite Baby Jogger stroller to create a travel system and can quickly go from city street to taxi, without a car seat base, thanks to the taxi-safe belt path. Protects infants rear-facing from 4 to 35 lb and up to 32". Car seat adapters and extra bases sold separately.

The taxi-safe belt path allows quick, easy, and safe installation without a base in taxis or rental cars. This European style install allows you to thread a vehicle seat belt around your car seat, for a secure install without the base.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Am I mistaken about the feature being standard on all infant car seats? I don't believe I've seen one without it so I'm puzzled as to why this company had to talk about it like it was some new invention.

I think so. We used it with out a base in my husband's car bc with the base it made it too big to fit. He had a little 2 door at the time.

Most do some don't. Sounds like theirs didn't use to and now it does.

The only ones I ever see without that feature are not true infant seats, but are convertibles instead. It's always been a standard feature as long as I've looked at infant seats.

Every carrier I have seen and used has that. Even when my 12 year old was a newborn, his carrier had it.

Every infant car seat I've ever seen can be placed into other cars with no base...the only ones that don't are convertible ones.

That's the assumption I've had. I may just stop at buy buy baby and look for the hell of it and see if I can find one that doesn't have those belt path thingies

Quoting dizzy91: The only ones I ever see without that feature are not true infant seats, but are convertibles instead. It's always been a standard feature as long as I've looked at infant seats.
