I used this car seat for only about 3 months when my daughter outgrown it. She's a chubby baby and was very uncomfortable in it hence this is a disadvantage for bigger babies. I can imagine that petite baby would fit it nicely for longer. It fitted well on bugaboo pram but the adaptors were difficult to remove.
It's scored good 4* in ADAC so it's not a bad seat however, being quite small and heavy, it does have a big competition amongst other car seats within that price tag.
Heavier than other car seats, difficult to get off the adaptors on the pram

I’ve been using the Cybex Aton Q for 9 months since my baby was born. I’m really glad we got this seat as I’m confident that my baby is safe and secure when in it. It is heavier than other car seats but I can still carry him with ease even at nearly 25lbs! The sun hood is good and I personally think is better than other brands where it just hooks on. The bumper feature when you’re in the car is clever and I like that in the event of an accident they would protect baby. It is rather difficult to get off the car seat adapters it took myself and my husband a while to figure out how to do it! But once you’ve got the knack it’s fine. Works equally well with isofix base and seatbelt fastening. Would recommend for a newborn car seat.
We got this car seat as part of our travel.system. The seat always seemed very sturdy and comfortable for our little one and we always found it very easy to use. We mostly used with the isofix base and so was very easy to install in the car.
The downside to this carseat was if using it on the pram frame. Once clipped in to the adapters it was a nightmare to get back off. Taking it off involved pushhing down on a small button either side of the seat which actually only fit the pads pf your fingwr or thumb in and then trying to lift the car seat at the same time to lift off of the adapters. It was almost impossible on your own. I onky tried it twice and one of those times i was stood in the rain with the baby getting soaked in tears until a good samaritan helped me. The car seat itself is great but the adapters and release are awful.
Overall a great car seat if only using it as that and not putting it on the pram frame
We used this car seat with the recommended isofix base and it was a lifesaver, no disturbing the baby when we got out of the car. The handle was easy to move to get the baby out and the straps were very easy to loosen and tighten however it would have been impossible for a baby to adjust it which is a positive.
We had this with the newborn insert initially which did seem very comfortable and plenty of padding to keep the baby safe. However the car seat didn’t seem to have much room length ways and by 5 months our little one looked very cramped and was unable to stretch his legs etc. By no means is he a big baby either.
We bought a new car seat at 6 months.
Got this car seat in my car. Looks really sturdy and safe. Baby was in it since birth and looks really comfy. This car seat got quite high position in crash tests. Easy to use and don’t take that much space in the car. Unfortunately she nearly outgrown of it so looking for next stage seat, probably Cybex as well. Only minus at my point is that car seat will get too small quite quick for big baby
stylish, protective, easy to put in car with base and easy to clip onto mamas and papas pram
heavy to carry with baby in and difficult to get off pram
Easy to use
Value for money
Although this is a heavy car seat to carry baby with, I would rather it be heavy than light for the protection aspect of the car seat. Baby always seems comfortable in it and its easy to use. Love using the base with the car seat as it's easy to get the baby in and out of the car definitely worth the money.
Really good car seat. It has worked well for us as a family. It's only negatives are that it is quite heavy and once baby has grown and become a bit heavier it is hard to carry the seat to and from the car. The other negative is that you can't remove or deflate the pads on either side of baby's head so that baby can lean to the side when they fall asleep. This results in baby's head flopping forwards when they fall asleep.
Comfortable, easy to adjust, can use with seatbelt or isofix, excellent safety reviews.
Easy to forget to pull out the side impact protection bar, can be difficult to fit onto Isofix base.

I chose this car seat based on it's excellent safety reviews on Which. My daughter is comfortable in it and the straps are easy to adjust, although she has been known to wriggle an arm out on occasion.
It fits on my Mamas & Papas pram as a travel system if I want to use it this way although it doesn't lie flat so I don't often use it this way. There is a hood with sunshade, however we were advised only to use this on the pram and not in the car when we bought it.
In the downside it is easy to forget to pull out the side impact protection bar. We've also found it difficult to click onto isofix base (have had it checked by shop who couldn't find any faults, but reported frequent complaints about the same issue. Not a problem now my daughter is 12 weeks as I find her to heavy to carry in the car seat now and for the sake of my back leave it in the car all the time now. In retrospect the sirona would have been a better choice for me straight off as I haven't really used the carrier or travel system functions and the sirona can be used from new born to approx 4 years.
This car seat really looks the part and is a look sturdier than others available. The adjustable padding means your baby is cradled comfortably from newborn to bigger! The seatbelt fixing is easy to use and means using it in different vehicles is a doddle. It is also compatible with many travel systems when using the correct adaptors.
However, the price you pay for good design is the weight. Once baby is loaded in the seat becomes quite hard to carry around.
Great car seat! Very easy to use and is very padded inside for the comfort of the baby. Adjusting the straps is easy and as baby grows the seat can be adjusted so they can fit better in the seat. Only down fall is that the seat is heavy to carry specially with a baby in there. But i still recommend this car seat
I really like that you can lay the seat flat when it’s out of the car
It’s quite heavy

The lying flat option is great for being out and about and not having to worry about how long they’ve been sat up for. There’s a cushion at the bottom to take out as they grow and you can extend the headrest with them too. The hood is really flexible and comes almost all the way over so great for sunny or drizzly days. Fabrics really soft and comfy.
Amazing car seat ! I previously had a silvercross but after 4 months I change to a cybex !! I absolutely love it and so does my baby ! He was sooo uncomfortable in the other one and would cry every time I put him in it I also had to spent more money on getting head suppoert ! But as soon as I put him in this cybex one he couldn’t stopped smiling ! He absolutely loves it and so do I the material is great ! It looks soo stylish and of course the safety is key and I can tell it’s super safe as it has extra side impact
This car seat has been a great buy for comfort and easy adjustment as baby grows. It has an easy to move headrest which also adjusts the straps with it so you aren’t fiddling with different strap height slots. I have this car seat with an isofix base which is really easy to install and take car seat in and out of the car .
The downside to this car seat is the weight.
I now really struggle to carry the car seat from the car to the house and my baby is only 5 months.
Great car seat . We have this in the navy . Lovely soft and comfortable padding around baby . Safe and secure features from airbags to straps . Easy to fix to the isofix base . Great canopy for keeping sunlight out and giving protection. The only negative for me is the weight . But overall a great product
Lovely looking car seat, baby is happy to be in it so must be comfortable. Easy to use and built well.
I find the sun canopy noisy when putting up or putting down, sometimes have woken little one, it kind of clicks
Love this car seat, it looks snug for baby once they get a bit older but this is because it’s such a safe car seat they won’t move too much in an accident
Telescopic impact protection is great idea and I can see how it would work in an accident ,
The straps automatically adjust when you move he head hugger up as baby grows saving a lot of agro , but the centre buckle on the base has a plastic surround that I see my baby banging his feet on all the time, but it doesn’t seem to bother him at all
This car seat is aesthetically pleasing and very sturdy. It clips easily in and out of an isofix base and is also easy to strap in conventionally. I have felt concerned that my daughters head sometimes lolls forward when travelling and I’m unsure if this is because the seat is installed incorrectly or it is not very compatible with our car but it feels like the seat should lie back more. Though it has a head rest which is meant to have 8 settings I don’t find it easy to adjust. My baby gets quite upset in the seat and doesn’t appear very comfortable as she looks squashed. She often arches her back once the seat belt it unfastened which suggested to me that she has felt uncomfortable. It has a good sun shade which folds away neatly. It is extremely heavy and bulky to carry.
Reclines almost flat so safer for baby to sleep in
Easy to use

This car seat is a beautiful design, made incredibly well and very simple to use. It is a good snug 4 point harness car seat which can be fitted with either a dedicated isofix base or belted *. It reclines flat to allow baby to sleep in car seat (NOT when in the car but when stood on the floor or attached to pram frame) which is great for babies developing and growing back/spine. Clicks into the isofix base really easily and has a side impact bar for extra protection.
Downsides to the car seat: foremost it is exceptionally heavy..even when empty..so add a chunky baby to it and its quite a strain to lift or carry..but the weight is all the safety features..so you get what you pay for. The * above is an advisory that it does not fit belted into all models of car. It will not fit into a focus without an isofix.
Overall though of you're ok with a weight training session every time you carry baby and car seat it's a wonderful product and I highly recommend it. Just check if it is suitable for your car as positioning is critical with any car seat.
Love this car seat and have so many compliments on it due it being bright orange! It can become heavy once you're little one gets bigger but that's due to its safety.
Love the added side impact protection.
easy to adjust headrest and harness moves with it so no need for faffing with the harness at the back.
Easy to get adaptors for most model of prams which makes it easier to pop into the doctors etc.
Nice that it has a hood that you can adjust without having to move the handle! Easy to clip onto car seat base.
