The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix baby car seat is one of the most popular and highly recommended rearward facing car seats. It’s safe, comfortable, easy to use, easy to clean and compatible with an isofix base or a seat-belt base. It can also be easily secured using your car seat belt. Having 3 options on how to secure it safely in your car means you don’t have to have a car that supports the ISOFIX system to benefit from the advantages of using a base; having a base in place makes it very easy to put it into your car and also get it out again, you simply click the car seat into place and check for the green indicators. When removing it, simply pull the lever and you are good to go.
The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix is a group 0+ rearward facing car seat, suitable from birth up to 13kg and is approved according to the latest European standard ECE R44/04.
It offers side impact protection, is lightweight (as far as car seats go- 3.5kg), is easy to carry and also has a hidden storage compartment at the back. You may want to keep a spare dummy, a pack of wipes or even squeeze in a universal rain cover. (please note: this is where you will find the instructions).
The Cabriofix is extremely snug and cosy and comes with a baby ‘head hugger’ and pillow which can be removed when your little one outgrows it. If you choose to use the family fix (ISOFIX) base, you will be able to keep your baby rearward facing for a longer period of time as it offers the option of an extra upward position resulting in more legroom.
Ease of use is important to all parents and Maxi Cosi have really focused on this feature without compromising safety; the cabriofix is compatible with all Maxi Cosi and Quinny pushchairs and buggies so you aren’t restricted to buying a complete all in one travel system; choose your favourite Quinny or Maxi Cosi frame and you can rest assured this will fit. The harness hooks on either side of the car seat also make it so much easier when putting your baby in.
The Cabriofix comes in a variety of colours including total black, black reflection and intense red.

Who is the Cabriofix good for?
The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix meets the criteria of every parent looking to buy a rearward facing car seat suitable from birth. Not only does it have a fantastic safety rating but can be used with isofix, a seat belt base or your car seat belt. The fact that it is compatible with every Quinny or Maxi Cosi frame is also a winner for me. A good car seat is stylish, comfortable, easy to use and of course, safe. The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix is all of the above and like many thousands of other parents, you will not be disappointed.
