What is the difference between signo and como



New member
This is from the Recaro website:

The main difference between the Como G2 and Signo G2 is the headrest adjustment and the latch system.

The Como G2 has 5 headrest and harness positions which can be adjusted by rethreading the harness where as the Signo G2 has an infinite adjustable headrest without rethreading. Both Convertibles come with latch mini connectors but only the Signo G2 has an additional latch bar which makes the switch from rear- to forward facing easier.

I know this is referencing the new G2, but I think it's the same for the older ones too. Also, the Como's head cushions can be removed, but the Signo's are fixed.

we have the como really wish I would have spent the extra $ to get the signo. the headwings can make it very hard to get a little one in and out, They fall forward and flap into the middle, needing to be rearranged every time you need to put the little one in, My older child who is using it, thinks the head wings are uncomfortable, we have removed them from the seat for her.

We love the seat just wish we went with signo over como:twocents:

I'm pretty sure they changed the headwings on the new Como. I think they made them smaller, more like the ones in the Signo. Yeah, the ones in the Como can be a pain, but my dd loves them.
Is the bar on the signo worth the extra money is the question now... I like the latch bar on the marathon it makes installing it a snap, but should I spend the extra on a signo or get a como and save a little?

i would spend more on the signo, if only for the LATCH bar. we have a como and two signos. they have the same base and shell. yet, the como installed lousily in our car (FF and RF), while the signo installed "rock the car" tight in either scenario... i'm talkin' ZERO movement at belt path. i attribute that to the LATCH bar setup. it really allows the seat to get cinched in tight.

and then there's the headwing issue. the signos are nicer in that they are connected with the infinite adjust harness. and in the signo, since the SIP is in the headwings and not in the form of an EPS shell liner (like the como has), the signo has slightly more shoulder room than the como.

It's the metal bar that runs around the sides and back of the Signo (and similarly on the sides and under/through the front of the Britax Marathon and Boulevard convertible models) that serves as the anchorage for the Signo's (and Marathon/Blvd's) two lower LATCH connector straps. You can see it if you click through the images and 360 degree viewable pictures to see the side views of the Marathon and Signo on the Britax and Recaro sites.
