    I purchased this from the toys r us closing down sale so was a huge bargain at only £65! Although I definitely would have paid the full price for it after using it for the last 3 months it’s so light which is definitely the best thing about It especially as my daughters getting heavier, it’s also not overly big which definitely helps in a small 3 door car when having other car seats in the back

    This is by far my favourite newborn car seat I have used a few different ones with my first child but other 2 there was no other choice it had to be the maxi Cosi. Great design and compatible with most pushchairs I've recommended it to all my friends who have had babies and will be purchasing again for my next baby.

    This is a great, straightforward car seat. We used it for our son until he was one with the isofix base. We could have spent more and got a car seat to last longer but felt like this would serve any children we had. So far used for one child only but I would hope to use it for any subsequent children!
    We had the isofix base which made it so simple to click in but I sometimes struggled to get it out - especially as he got bigger! We didn’t use it on our buggy.
    We hadn’t realised that the sun canopy was tucked into the back so it took a while to find that!
    Overall, pleased with this purchase!

    This is a popular little thing. It is basic to use. can be a little stiff pulling out the straps when you press the button for it to extend. What can I say if my baby could talk I would ask her what she thinks. It has some good padding and a nice little hidden compartment underneath. Within no time they are too big for this thing. Fits well with my out n about running buggy but makes it a lot heavier. I don't know how to attach the seatbelt to this thing but thankfully my husband does.

    I have used the cabriofix car seat with both my children, using just the seatbelt with my first and the isofix base with my second. I absolutely love the maxi cosi seats, I plan on buying a new car seat if we have another one but only because I’ve had this seat longer than recommended, it could easily stand up to another baby’s use. I will be replacing with the exact same car seat though as I liked it so much and I can still use my isofix base. I find this seat really easy to fit in the car, both with the seat belt and with the isofix base. My babies have always looked very comfy and secure in the seat. I’ve fortunately never been in an accident to say how it holds up in a crash but I feel confident that this seat would keep my baby as safe as possible in the event of an accident, hopefully it won’t ever be tested though. My car seat has a pull out sun canopy which attaches onto the handle, I find this is a bit flimsy and eventually came away from the car seat towards the end of my second child’s use. I hope the newer models have a more sturdy canopy/hood on them.

    This car seat looks nice and is light weight. It is well made and fits onto my pushchair perfectly. We also have a base for the car which the car seat clips on. It is so much easier to get in and out of the car.

    This is a great little car seat very adaptable with so many prams which is great to make it part of a travel system.
    I had it in black and it stayed in great condition throughout use.
    The sun shade built in attaches to the carry handle which is great but if you don’t want it, it’s quite difficult to put it away.
    This is nice and lightweight which was so handy for me as we don’t have a drive and I often had to carry it down the street with my baby in.

    This is my second maxi cosi. We love it as it's simple to use, light and baby looks really comfy in it (whereas with other seats baby's look at a funny angle)
    Really easy to use - even my husband can use it!
    It's great for newborns due to the insert but once you remove this, great for older babies.
    I found it easy to remove the cover when baby had a massive poonami and wash and pretty easy to replace.
    If I was to have another baby (I won't be!) I would purchase this again

    This car seat is brilliant, we used it with the easybase and it was so easy to get the seat in and out of the car. Lightweight & my son looked pretty comfortable the whole time we used it. Only downside was the sunshade kept popping out of place, but that might of been a fault of mine.

    I absolutely loved this car seat with my first born. So much so it was the only car seat on my mind when I had my 2nd baby! It is lightweight and compatible with most travel systems (I’ve used it both time with an oyster pushchair). The newborn insert if fantastic and makes your tiny baby more comfortable. I also love how the cover is removable and can be washed when you have the usual accidents with small children.

    this is a great car seat, very safe for newborns up to 1yr. it would be good if it was supplied with a spare set of covers so when baby invariably is sick u can wash one set while still using the car seat for transport.

    After looking at many different car seats this was the best we found for style, ease of use, safety and value for money. This seat is lightweight which is of great value as baby gets heavier, it’s a good size for longer babies with all straps easily adjustable as baby grows. The seat is very easy to fit into different cars using the seatbelt attachments ( we don’t use an isofix base). The design is fairly basic but matches lots of other branded pushchairs, I use a silver cross pushchair and the attachments are easy to use and change. My only negative point is how the car seat detaches from the pushchair is quite awkward when your on your own.

    I absolutely love this car seat, I love the fact the you are able to remove the triangular piece of form from the middle of the seat to allow for more space as baby gets bigger. Extremely well made, there are no rickety pieces on it and feels comfortable in the ha d and arm. Would recommend this product to any pregnant lady.

    I absolutely love this maxi-cosi car seat, for me it was a complete must have item. We have the maxi-cosi 2 way fixed iso base which makes using this car seat even easier to install into the car. The carseat itself was very sturdy and comfortable for our little one who didn't outgrow this until he was at least 1 year old. I liked that as the baby grows you simply take out the extra padding, which is all machine washable too if there was any accidents. With the correct adapters we have used the car seat with the Bugaboo Chameleon which was super easy if baby was asleep in the car we just transferred the carseat onto the pram. We have another one on the way now so we will be using this again for our 2nd little one.

    Love this car seat it is great value for money and is generously sized for baby. For newborn it comes with the foam head/support piece what is great as sits baby perfectly, no wiggling around.
    It washes up really well but is a bit difficult to put back on once you have done it once it is easy, love that it fits on pram also and feels like it will last a long time for the future. Great buy and good brand. Good value for money also.

    This car seat is perfect to keep your baby safe and secure in the car, it has an additional part to use for a newborn and this can be removed as your baby grows, my daughter is so comfortable in her car seat and travels with ease, we have bought adapters to fit into her pram so if she is sleeping we will transfer her onto the pram for short periods of time. I would recommend the maxi Cosi brand of car seats for safety and comfort

    This a brilliant car seat for a newborn baby. I got it as part of a travel system and got an isofix base to use with it. Being able to pop the seat in and out of the base was so easy. I ts also very easy to install with a seat belt, which I did on a number of occasions in relatives cars. Pram adapters meant that it just slotted onto the pram straight from the car which was handy when popping in and out of the car to run errands. Would definitely recommend.

    I used this car seat with my city jogger push chair from birth with my baby boy. It was very easy to install using easy a isofix or a seatbelt.

    It being so lightweight was very useful to carry baby in to avoid waking when just needing to nip into the shop etc.

    It gives fantastic support and is very easy to use and clean.

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
