    It is quite a bit heavier than the Venicci Carseat in comparison but that`s okay. I love the way the Maxi Cosi carseats fit on most adapters. I wish it had one touch buttons like the Maxi Cosi Pebble. Does the job as a carseat so I am happy.

    I been using this car seat for the last 8 months I still love using it. I used it with a base in my partner car and seat belt with my car and it was so easy to use in both car. It was handed that I could connect it the my Parm base. We are moving away from using this car seat now as my little girl like to be a bit more sat up and look out the window.

    I love how versatile this car seat is. It can be belted into the car or can be used with a base- we used a base. The list of travel systems its compatible with is also endless which is a plus. We had an iCandy peach and I loved how I could leave baby undisturbed in their seats if I just popped to the shops. Its also lightweight so carry baby in the car seat whilst dashing to pick one of my other children up was never a huge weight on my arms.

    Bought this for our 3rd child.. who isnt the tiniest baby. The newborn support is good, had no problems with seatbelts being long enough and easy to install. I like that it has a hidden canopy hood. The only downside is it is really heavy, even with an newborn in and the isofix bases are pricey if you just got the car seat alone.

    I’ve had this car seat for a long time now. I bought it for my second born and I’m currently using it for my third. It’s still gong strong. I love this car seat it looks good and does the job well. The newborn insert adds that extra padding and security for when they are very small. The straps are easy to adjust with just the press of a button and a pull on them to either make them larger or smaller. My little one seems happy and comfy in this car seat. In fact it’s his favourite place to fall asleep. I like how you can connect it to your pushchair too with the right adapters.
    The only fault I can find is that the fabric collects dust and lint very quickly and it shows up. But overall I’d recommend it

    We are now looking for a 360 degree seat which isn’t compatible with this base. However other than this, this seat is great. Fits on pram well with adaptors

    Really like this car seat. The only down sides i have found are that the seat is really heavy. And that the new born insert has the head hugger attached so it can't be adjusted, meaning I had to remove my new born insert at 4 weeks cause my son was really long and use a muslin to keep his head safe instead.

    I LOVE this car seat! It’s so easy to clip baby in, I would say it’s heavy specially now my little girl has got bigger I think it’s time for a new car seat!
  • 3.75/5
    • Strengths:

      This product is very handy and light weight, also you can remove the seat with out disturbing.

    • Weaknesses:

      Very awkward to put in, also the rain cover for this item it very hard to put on.

    I bought this as a car seat for travelling to/from the supermarket and going around the supermarket mainly . I found it was light weight and fitted the trolley slot for car seats great. Baby always seemed very comfortable and snug. Although I was a little concerned that long term use would cause some spine issues and this seat seemed very deep. Rain cover was a little tricky to put on before removing the seat from the car which wasn’t ideal. Also the fitting of the seat with a seat belt can be a little frustrating and is definitely a two hand job so if you have a upset little one it’s hard to use one hand to comfort or grab a dummy while installing. Again item was lightweight and very useful for travelling in around the town to family and friends but I used a more sturdy chair for long journeys especially of it was for a motorway. Fabric was easy to take off to wash and put back one, fabric was always soft and comfortable. Chair lasted 3 of my babies before I upgraded and was still going strong.

    We love this car seat. My little boy struggles with tummy pain a lot so the newborn insert that lays him flat is a life saver! The car seat is super light compared to some of my friends and can be used on the majority of prams! The hood is stretchy so you can easily move it to the side to check your little one is okay, without having to take it down and disturb the baby!

      Its cushioned bottom, easy to adjust straps.

    Chose this car seat as I like simple designs that would suit all babies outfits. It has a cushioned bottom which was ideal as my baby was premature and didnt weigh much therefore it was comfortable for him. This is also idea for those long journeys . The seat doesnt take up too much room in the back of the car as it isn't too bulky. The straps are easy enough to adjust as baby grows. However theres a back compartment which I find useless aswell as a small open gap at the bottom which I dont see the point of.

    Very easy and light weight carseat . Baby is comfortable and safe when tavelling. Great product for a newborn. Great value for money.
  • 4.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Easily placed into car, belted or isofix

    • Weaknesses:

      No guidelines on when to remove cushion

    Car seat is sleek and easily installed into the car either belted or using the isofix base - the downside is it cannot be removed with one hand from the family fix base as you have to remove the seat as you pull the lever on the base. The seat is comfy for baby and easy to buckle them in etc - however I have found limited information on when they advise you to remove the cushion wedge that is inside the head hugger insert - my baby was 14 weeks when I removed the cushion as he looked squashed and is a chunky baby however I have no idea if this was the right thing to do, the only information the my do provide is that they advise you use the head hugger for as long as possible and this can be moved when you move the straps higher as baby grows.

    This is a great car seat. It is easy as parents to use and seems to be comfortable for my little one. It can be easily taken apart to wash all components which is a must.

    I've tried 3 different infant car seats that looked far more cosy (and expensive!) than this one but this one is honestly way more loved by my baby than the others. I find the padding isnt much but my baby seems very content regardless, so I can't really fault it in any way. I wish the canopy wasn't as sheer though, with a bit more UV protection but the fact that my baby loves this one so much is all that really matters as he's the one that's got to sit in it!

    Great car seat, like the hood that is attached to the handle. Baby is happy travelling in it. Covers are easy to come off for cleaning. Easy to use with isofix base.

    As a first time parent I think it’s very easy to over spend because of excess worries . Honestly so happy to get this car seat as one of the cheapest one and works well ! It’s comfortable , comparable with my yoyo as a travel system . It’s relatively lighter weight so it’s easier to take in and out . I have the isofix and makes it easier to strap my baby in .

    My son has used this car seat from birth, he is now 7 months old, but is getting a little big for it. I will keep this for my next baby - for sure.

    This has been perfect from birth as it has a sponge wedge to keep babys position flat. Really good quality, easy to fit, safe canopy to protect from debris. Plenty of polystyrene and a really sturdy shell.
  • 3.88/5
    • Strengths:

      Ideal to use if you have multiple cars but don’t want to invest in more than one seat

    • Weaknesses:

      Hood can be stiff to put down

    • Comfortable
    • Value for money
    We really like this car seat as it has been straight forward for us to use & get used to as first time parents. It’s easy to carry to & from our car & also easy enough to secure into the car. We like the fact that we can use this in any car as there is no need for a base so we have been able to use it in our parents car. I like the simple design of this car seat my only complaint is that the hood can be stiff to put down sometimes but hopefully that will become easier as we use it more often.

    This is so easy to use and easy to clean however it is slightly cumbersome and clunky.
    I do find the head hugger and the wedge a little difficult to use but our 3 week old seems fairly comfortable in the car seat.
    I'm not sure this is our forever car seat but it's working well for us currently.
  • 3.50/5
    • Strengths:

      Baby fastens in easily, lightweight, fixes easily into both isofix and seat belt use

      States goes up to 12 months, unrealistic

    • Comfortable

    The fastening of the baby is great, easy to do. The newborn insert comes out easily as the baby grows. The seat is light in weight, it was the lightest of all the car seats we looked at.
    The seat states up to 12 months but our 8 month old boy is already too big as his feet come out the end and the head cosy part isn't high enough (our baby is not really that big).
  • 4.50/5

      Ease of use

    • Weaknesses:

      Stiff to fasten

    This car seat is great. Very light weight, seems very comfortable for baby and is very easy to fit in and out of the isofix base in the car. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it is quite stiff when it comes to fastening baby in.

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
