Evenflo Revolve 360 Review: All You Need To Know 

By Jennifer Ward

A rotating car seat may sound like a gimmick, but it’s not. Enter the Evenflo Revolve 360, a car seat that promises to revolutionize your road trips. But does it live up to the hype, or is it just another spin on the same old frustrations?  

I grabbed my little girl and put the Revolve 360 through its paces. From spinning to tackling tricky transitions and snack spills, I’m here to spill the beans on whether this car seat is a game-changer or just another pretty face in the parking lot. Let’s get started.


  • Swivel range: 360˚ 
  • Lifespan of the seat: 10 years from date of manufacture 
  • Max weight limit rear-facing: 5 lbs. – 40lbs. 
  • Max height limit rear-facing: 17″-40″ 
  • Forward-facing weight limits: 22 lbs. -65lbs. 
  • Forward-facing height limits: 28″-49″ 
  • Booster mode weight limits: 40 lbs. – 120 lbs. 
  • Booster height limits: 44″-57″ 


  • Seat swivels on a base 
  • Optional infant insert 
  • Dishwasher safe cupholders 
  • Easy recline adjustment 
  • Premium lower anchors 
  • LockStrong belt tensioning arm 
  • Foldable body insert to fit preemies

Dimensions and Width 

Revolve 360 isn’t exactly petite – with dimensions: 

  • 19.8 inches in width,  
  • 21 inches in depth, and  
  • a height of 25.9 inches, it’s not your compact car seat. 

Now, considering it’s a 3 in 1 with a 360-degree rotation feature, you can’t expect it to be as slim as your regular fixed car seat. For the rotation feature, you’ll need a bit more elbow room. 

But here’s the deal – while it might not win a slimming contest, it’s crafted to fit into most vehicles, even the smaller ones. The 19.8-inch width is decent, although not the narrowest out there. I’d recommend measuring your backseat to ensure everything fits like a glove. 

Weight & Height Limits: 

With a rear-facing weight limit of 4 to 40 lbs. and a rear-facing height limit of up to 49 inches, the Revolve 360 is in line with the standards for convertible car seats. 

But here’s the scoop – Evenflo rolled out two upgraded models, the Gold Revolve360 Extend with SensorSafe and the Gold Revolve360 Extend with Quick Clean Cover. Both models boast a rear-facing weight limit of 50 lbs., offering a bit more wiggle room for your growing munchkin. (Both extended versions share a rear-facing height limit of 48 inches.) 

After switching to forward-facing, the Revolve 360 keeps things comfortable with a weight limit of 65 lbs. and a height limit of 49 inches. I appreciate the ease of getting my kid in and out. 

Lastly, let’s talk booster mode – this car seat rocks a whopping 120 lbs. capacity. Perfect for the big kids. It follows the trend of high booster weight limits. But, fair warning, the height limit caps at 57 inches. While that’s pretty standard, it means taller kiddos might outgrow it sooner than expected. 

Weight & Height Limits


You know how some car seats just lack that plush feel? Well, not this one. Evenflo seriously stepped up their game with the Gold Revolve 360. It’s like sitting on a fluffy foam, especially compared to the cheaper models like the Evenflo Chase and Sonus 65. Some other rotating car seats I considered just don’t match up in the padding department.  

The padding isn’t just about a cushy ride, although that’s a huge bonus. The Revolve 360 is comfy and adds an extra layer of protection in case of a crash. It’s like Evenflo thought of everything. If you’re looking for a car seat that has high-quality padding and takes safety seriously, the Gold Revolve 360 is where it’s at. 



You can install the Revolve 360 with your car’s seat belt or the LATCH system. For rear and forward-facing modes, I’d recommend the lap/shoulder belt. But when you switch to booster mode, that’s where LATCH comes in handy. Just a little heads up, there’s a weight limit for LATCH in rear and forward-facing – 35 lbs. and 40 lbs., respectively.  

If you want to use the LATCH system to install the base, attach that base to the lower anchors in your vehicle. If you prefer the seat belt route, thread it through the base and buckle up. Make sure that the base is locked tight, not moving more than an inch in any direction. 

Overall, my take on the Evenflo Revolve 360 installation process is it’s hassle-free and straightforward. 



Evenflo Revolve 360 is a bit on the heavier side, weighing around 29.6 lbs. The cool thing about it is that it’s split into two parts – a carrier and a base. So, if you really need to switch the car seat between cars, you can do that without too much hassle. However, it’s not the best pick if you’re always moving the seat in and out of your car. If you’re all about portability, this car seat might not be the one for you. 

Headrest & Harness: 

One thing that really caught my eye is the headrest and harness setup of Revolve 360. It’s got this crazy 14-position adjustable headrest. What’s convenient is how easy it is to adjust. You just need to pull the lever at the top of the seat. You can move the headrest up or down to whatever spot works best for your kiddo. The harness straps adjust automatically with the headrest. No extra fiddling or adjustments are needed.  

Only one other car seat, the Britax One4Life, has more positions, 15. But hey, 14 is still impressive. It means your kiddo gets this tailored fit as they grow, making sure the harness is always in the right spot for safety and comfort. 



Evenflo Revolve 360 has five different recline positions. To adjust how laid back or upright your kiddo is, there’s this neat handle tucked under the fabric flap at the bottom of the seat. You lift it up, press the handle, and then slide the seat forward or backward to get the recline you want. Once you’ve found that perfect spot, just let go of the handle and make sure it’s all locked in place. 

The best part is how it’s designed for different ages and sizes. For the older ones, it can sit fully upright. But for the littlest ones, you can tweak it to give them that extra support they need for their head and neck. 

Convenient Features: 

  • Head pillow & body pillow 

Evenflo Revolve 360 comes with super comfy pillows – a body pillow and a head pillow. You know how babies can be all wiggly and small, right? These pillows help them fit just right in the car seat. Plus, they keep their little heads and bodies in the perfect spot. One thing to mention: these pillows are just for rear-facing.  

When your kiddo starts growing, you can remove them to adjust the seat as you need. 

  • Cup holders: 

The car seat is equipped with two built-in cup holders right on the sides. They’re deep enough for all sorts of bottles, so no worries there. What I love most is they’re removable! Just pop ’em out, give ’em a wash in the sink, or throw ’em in the dishwasher. Easy! However, the cup holders add a tad bit of width to the seat. 

Final Words 

Evenflo Revolve 360 is a top contender in the car seat world. Yeah, the price might make you do a double-take, but the convenience and safety features are worth every penny. What I love is that you basically install it once, and you’re good to go. You can spin this car seat even when your kiddo is all grown and facing forward. Not all rotating seats can do that, you know? But this one keeps that option open, thanks to its design. If you’re in the market for a car seat that’s a one-time install with top-notch features, convenience, quality, and comfort, this is the one.
