    We mainly use this for my husbands car as I’ve got a car seat in my own car but when our son was first born we used this one all the time it is a good car seat just a bit bulky and became heavy for me. Had a good bit of padding for comfort

    I have just purchased my second one I liked it so much, so very easy to use and adjust the straps. However I find as the baby begins to grow the seat becomes very heavy and awkward to life for someone with my very slight build. Absolutely brilliant when used with an isofix though.

    I got this car seat and used it for both my children. I loved the head support and the continue support it gives up to when they grow out of it. It also has nice padding for comfort for them. It's easy to carry and can be put into different buggies.

    Having had a Maxi Cosi for my son we decided to buy another for when our daughter arrived. It’s easy to use and install, is safe and definitely looks the part.

    A really great car seat that I will be using for baby number 2.
    It is compatible with ISOFIX bases, however is it also very quick and easy to install in the car with a seatbelt (as long as the seatbelt is quite long!)
    The handle is very easy to carry and comfortable, however it is a bit of a pain that you need both hands to adjust the handle back and forth.
    I also purcahsed the pram adapters for £20 and the car seat slots in very easily to my Oyster 2 pram.
    The only downside is the sun shade doesn't really shade much, however I have brought a canopy for it which does the job fine.

    Every time I put my daughter in the car seat she would cry and wouldn't in other so i guess wasn't very comfy for her it very light weight but the chest pad ain't very padded
  • 4.75/5
    • Strengths:

      Newborn insert, adjustable straps, sun shade hood

    • Weaknesses:

      Clips to remove off wheels small and awkward

    The design of this car seat is beautiful, it comes in a verity of colours and designs. I went for the black raven I believe it is called, the head rest and shoulder straps have a grey and black strip detailing.
    The hood is lightweight and tucks into the back.
    It has two height adjustment and a newborn padded foam insert which is removable for when baby gets bigger.
    The two small silver buttons to remove from wheel attachments are in a slightly awkward place and when removing it can be tricky to grab the bar handle for better grip. Other than that a great car seat.
  • 3.25/5
    • Strengths:

      Easy to use, especially with isofix base. Fairly lightweight

    I bought this car seat as it is compatible with the Quinny buggy my sister gave us. Overall it is easy to use and fairly lightweight and was also a reasonable price. However my little one has bad reflux and the position she has to sit in makes her very uncomfortable. Little one screams most of the time she is in it, removing the newborn insert helped but she is still not happy. It seems like a very popular choice of car seat, usually at least 3 or 4 when we go to baby groups.

    I wanted a lightweight car seat that was easy to use as I was having twins and I knew I would often need to be able to carry both seats at the same time. These car seats have been an absolute life saver!! They are incredibly light in comparison to others, easy to clean and with the newborn inserts, I was comfortable using the seats when my babies were tiny.

    This was the first ever car seat my little boy had and i had an Isofix and it was so easy to just click and fit it even when we went into a car without an isofix it was easy to make sure it was safe enough with the seat belt thanks to the instructions that are stuck on the side.

    This car seat is great for on the go. Clip the base in then it’s just a clip in and out of the chair. Only bad side is it will only release from the base if it’s tipped forward and not sideways towards you when you’re standing out of the car.

    Great support. When leaving the NICU with my premature twins I was so scared to take them home in their car seats. However loved these and my mind was at ease how comfy and supported my babies were. Still loving them now! Also very light and easy to put in car.

    Bought this car seat as it was one of the ones recommended as compatible with my pram system (mama and papas xt) it was the lightest of the recommended ones and I'm a bit of a weakling when it comes to carrying things.
    It ticks the boxes of everything needed in a newborn car seat although it's not particularly large so can see baby growing out of it sooner rather than later.
    It is very easy to strap in (we haven't got the cabriofix base) and is very secure once in.
    Took me a while to find the canopy as its tucked away in a pocket in the back, I nearly bought one as I didn't think it had one but then thanks to internet I found it .
    Baby loves being in it and sleeps really well (even though they only recommend them being in it a short while)he'd sleep all day in it if he could so I'm guessing that means its comfortable

    This car seat is so simple to use, comfy for baby and so easy to put in the car as it’s so lightweight and not bulky, I have this with the maxi cosi pram and it’s so easy to attach on and off, would definitely recommend this car seat for any new parents who are looking to buy!

    I have bought a Cabriofix car seat every time I have a new baby & I can honestly say they are great.
    They are lightweight which makes carrying it a lot easier, especially when you have other walking children with you to the car.
    It straps in very secure, and it connects to IsoFix which is also a very secure method.
    The newborn insert is fabulous as it kept my baby warm & safe & they travelled lovely in it.
    I also bought adaptors so I can use it whilst using my pushchair.
    The only downfall is the hood. Every time I have bought one it seems to tear on the side but they are quite cheaply replaceable.
    Overall, would highly recommend.

    This car seat is very easy to use, simply sit baby in and clip straps together. The straps are easy to adjust either making them smaller or bigger.
    The carseat comes with a newborn insert which is soft and padded for baby's safety. This is also very easy to put in and out. As baby grows it has 3 different places where you can place the straps which is simple to do. It also has a little hood feature that you can attach to the car seat handle which keeps sun and wind off baby or allows it to be a bit darker for if baby goes to or wants to go to sleep. Also very easy to fit to a pram with the right attachments.
    The only weakness I feel is that it's already a bit heavy to carry and my baby is only a small 8 week old, so I may struggle as she gets bigger.

Description

The lightweight Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix infant carrier is suitable from birth to 13 kg and is compatible with Maxi-Cosi and Quinny pushchairs to form the perfect travel system.

This car seat features enhanced Side Protection System and a soft chushioned seat with newborn seat reducer.

Practical belt hooks will assist in keeping the harness out of your way when placing your child in the seat. A one-pull harness adjustment ensures that it is set at the right tension. As your baby grows, the harness and headhugger can be altered so that it is always positioned correctly.

The CabrioFix installation is very easy with Maxi-Cosi's range of click-and-go base units or it can also be installed using the car's three-point seat belt.

When used in conjunction with Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix Base a light and sound indicator will notify you of its correct installation.

The car seat can also be adjusted into a unique upward position so older babies have more legroom. As a result, you can use the seat for longer in the rearward facing position which is the safest way for younger children to travel.

This car seat has been designed with your little one's comfort in mind: it is supplied with a headhugger, newborn seat reducer, chest and buckle pad and an integrated sun canopy. It also features an extra comfortable ergonomic carrying handle to make it easier for you to transport.

Features:

  • Compatible with Maxi-Cosi & Quinny pushchairs to form a travel system
  • Easy installation in combination with Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix Base, EasyFix Base, EasyBase 2 or a 3-point seat belt
  • Side Protection System offers optimal protection against side impact
  • Practical belt hooks help keep the harness out of the way
  • Ergonomic carrying handle
  • One-pull harness system for adjusting the harness length
  • Also compatible with Maxi-Cosi 2wayFix Base
  • Includes with 3-point safety harness, newborn seat reducer, harness pads & hooks, removable soft headhugger and integrated sun canopy
  • ECE R44/04 approved
