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

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.
I received my car seat with a bundle of my mamas and papas ocarro. It’s a lovely looking car seat and very easy to use. The base is absolutely brilliant but the car seat is quite easy to put in without the base too. The hood is brilliant for rides on sunny days. My one weakness is that it seems very snug on my daughters head, which in turn makes her quite hot.
I have had this car seat for about 15 months and still love it as much today as I did when I first bought it! Seat was great with a newborn as can be used on our pram in the lie flat position! My daughter always looked comfortable in it! Stylish design and really nice fabric! My daughter still uses this car seat at 15 months old and still has some room for growth! Car seat is heavy to lift but I would not mark it down for this as I think it makes the car seat feel a lot safer that some of the lighter car seats! Would definitely recommend!
Heavy, hard to get off the pram & not great for a 3dr car.

I received this seat as a bundle deal, along with the isofix and the ocarro pram set. Although a great design, I wouldn’t have chosen it separately as it’s very heavy so therefore difficult to manoeuvre in a 3 door car. (Thank goodness for isofix!) I love cybex as a company though, as they have a very high testing standard. It comes with a collapsible hood and can attach to my pram with adaptors, but when trying to lift the seat off of the pram it’s very difficult to 1) simultaneously push down two buttons and lift at the same time and 2) it’s heavy, especially with a baby in the 95th percentile! I would like to add that when receiving the car seat, there was no indication that the instructions were actually stored inside the seat itself at the back.
My partner and I purchased this car seat as per of a 6 piece bundle with our mamas and papas ocarro pushchair. The car seat has proven easy to use and little one looks very secure when strapped in.
The main issue we have noted with the seat is when attaching it to the pushchair. The seat has clips on either side of the seat to release it from the clips on the pushchair. These are below the base of the handles and the clips need to be held down whilst lifting the seat off. This cannot be done whilst holding the handle and therefore does not feel entirely safe and has on occasion filled me as a new mum with anxiety about the possibility of dropping the seat with little one in it!
The car seat is easy to lift into and out of the car and when used in conjunction with the isofix base is very easy to release from the car.
We got on great with this car seat from birth. Easy to fit with and without isofix. Baby was comfortable even when older, would highly recommend. Can be used with travel systems with right adaptors too.
This was baby's first seat, he was always comfy and secure in it, and I felt confident that he was safe even as a newborn. Lots of padding, easy to use harness, heavy to lift (especially after section!) But this is same for all seats so wouldn't mark it down!
Would buy again!
