    I love the car seat! It’s great, comfy and good value for money. Easy to take in and out the car. Easy to clean. Padding was simple to remove when needed. Only downfall was canopy would sometime fall in babies face as it is not boned but other than that I really like it.

    This car seat comes with a new born insert which is easily removable once the child becomes too big for it. The seat itself is very comfortable for the baby and it is light and easy to carry. The car seat can also be used with the ISO Fix base which helps to install into the car.

    This is a good size seat, easy to install into the car (we just use the seatbelt & it’s very sturdy when plugged in) baby seems very comfy as always falls asleep on journeys. This heatwave though isn’t so great as it seems a very warm fabric so have quite a sweaty baby.
    Very universal if wanting to connect onto the pram base, I’ve had it on 2 different brand of buggy (same seat for both children) and easy to find the adaptors and easy to get on and off.
    Good seat and easy to carry with baby in.

    Loved this car seat. So easy to lift in and out of the car to the pram as its light. Also not complicated to remove from isofix base or pram. I used it with the Quinny zapp base and was great so easy to fit. Also we were able to remove all the covers to wash them.

    I had purchased the Maxi Cosi CabrioFix Car Seat after finding other car seats quite heavy let alone having a little one in it as well. I find it much lighter and easier to use. I find this car seat a lot easier to remove from the easy way base for the car and adapters for prams. Its slightly wider which wasn't a problem for me but also meant baby had a bit more room which seemed nice and in turn I think would possibly make it more comfortable as the child gets bigger. The seat belt/harness is easy to use, the straps are easy to loosen and tighten as you wish. The bar is easy to put back forward. All round great car seat and would definitely recommend and use again in the future. Only thing i have marked down is comfort as the car seat is quite hard but with the newborn insert it is very comfy and baby seems happy in it.

    I didn’t use this with my first child and it was my biggest regret, it has made my life so much easier with my second as I do not need to wake him every time we get in or out of the car and as my first is currently in school we are always on the go! The only downside I have found is the children get extremely hot in these and with the heat wave it has been unbearable as it is black. I think the manufacturer should consider creating a summer insert that is light coloured and breathable.

    Easy to use car seat from birth with the isofix base. Simple yet effective and good price compared to other brands. Will easily last my little girl until she is 6-9 months old before I have to think of buying another seat. I can then keep the isofix base and go to the next seat up.

    All in all, a fab car seat which kept my pram baby safe and snug and happy , my 18 month old still fit in hers until we upgraded. Lovely design, although I preferred the older style floral print:) would recommend to anyone.

    Car seat itself very comfy for the baby, at least ours loved it. However it is a bit heavyweight, so i was struggling to carry it with the baby once he gained more weight. I loved the sunroof- very handy to protect baby from direct sunlight! And i do believe baby would definitely fit up to 13kg as it says :)

    The cabriofix was the perfect choice for us especially having a small baby the new born insert was perfect for bringing her home safely from hospital as it offered superb protection without losing her in the seat.
    It’s a lightweight unit that’s very easy to use.l from reclining the handle to loosening and tightening the straps.
    It can be fitted in the car using a seat belt or via the maxi cosi base which is personally how we use it and again very easy to take in and out of the car. The canopy and rain cover fit on perfectly just would’ve preferred that they had been included in the purchase price instead of extra add ons.
    Very happy with the seat and would definitely recommend it.

    I love this car seat but I don't expect it to last until 1, the top part of the seat is very narrow so my baby's shoulders are pretty squashed at 8 months old!

    This car seat is stylish & comfortable. Great for your little ones .. it’s comes with a newborn wedge to keep your little bundle comfortable in those first few months of life, along with a comfortable head support. The shoulder pads add extra comfort and ensure your child is comfortable.

    The amount of designs these car seats come in means that everybody is going to find one that best suits them. The car seat it super lightweight and easy to carry. The sun canopy is great for in the summer months when you want to keep the sun from your little ones eyes.

    I would recommend this product to any new or expectant mums out there.

    This car seat is good value for money, it’s useful to purchase the isofix base as it makes clipping it into the car much quicker and easier. I have been able to buy adapters for both my pushchairs so that the car seat can click directly onto them, however I have found that once the inserts have been removed for tiny babies it does feel quite firm and not as cushioned as some other car seats on the market. Overall I’m happy with this purchase.

    I did a lot of research when it came to car seats and this was one of the highest rated for safety. It’s very easy to use and appears to be comfortable. Our first son fit it from birth (8lb14oz) until 10 months (he was very tall). The covers are easy to remover and replace for hygiene. It’s easy to use with or without the isofix base so great for swapping between cars. It’s fits a huge range of travel systems too. Our raincover split quite early on along one of the seems but it’s still functional and doesn’t affect its use/fit.

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
