The convenient, go-anywhere infant car seat
The smooth, sleek design of the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix offers you and your baby an exceptional sense of comfort, ease of use, and safety. Every Maxi-Cosi car seat model is specially designed for each age, as your child grows from birth to the age of 12. The CabrioFix is a rear-facing Group 0+ infant carrier seat, suitable from 0 to 13 kg (birth to around 12 months).
- It is always the weight, not the age, of a child that dictates the choice of car seat.
- A baby should be transported rear-facing for as long as possible, as this offers more support to the head and backbone.
- Do not buy or accept a second-hand car seat – you can never be certain of its full history and it may not provide adequate protection in an accident.
Why choose the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix?
Right protection: The CabrioFix's side protection system offers optimal protection against side impacts.
Correct seatbelt installation: Anti-misuse belt routing prevents incorrect fitting of the CabrioFix with a car seatbelt.
Carrying handle: The CabrioFix's carrying handle allows you to adjust the seat to various positions, for sitting/feeding, sleeping/rocking, or carrying/car use. This convenient feature also allows you to easily take baby in and out of the car, without removal from the seat.
Harness: Convenient hooks keep the harness of the CabrioFix out of the way to make it easy to place your child in the car seat. Thanks to the one-pull harness system you can easily adjust the length of the harness according to your child’s need and secure them within seconds.
Removable newborn seat reducer: The CabrioFix has a removable seat reducer to create a flatter lying position for newborn babies and support the head in a sideways direction. When the baby is around four to five months old, remove the seat reducer to make the seat deeper, then you can still use the head hugger.
Headhugger: The CabrioFix includes a removable headhugger for added comfort.
Sun canopy: The easy-access integral sun canopy is easy to store. The sun canopy can be found integrated within the seat by the headrest. This is for neatness when the canopy is not in use. The easiest way to locate the canopy the first time is to turn the car seat upside down and you will see a small grey button at the head end. By pressing this button, it allows the shell to extend slightly and reveals the canopy which is stored between the plastic and fabric of the car seat body. The instructions that show you how to do this are housed on the back of the seat.
Travel system: The CabrioFix forms a practical travel system when used with any Maxi-Cosi or Quinny pushchair. Place the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix rear-facing onto the pushchair chassis and 'click' the seat onto the adapters of the unfolded frame.
Car seat cover: The car seat cover is washable at 30°C. You may want to buy an extra cover when purchasing the CabrioFix so that you can continue using it even when the cover is being washed or dried.
Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix: If using the CabrioFix with the Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix car seat base, you enjoy long-lasting value and convenience as only one base is needed for two consecutive age car seats – CabrioFix or Pebble (birth to 13 kg) and Pearl (9 to 18 kg). The CabrioFix offers an adjustable upward position for older babies when used with the FamilyFix.
Colour range: The CabrioFix is available in a range of exciting colours that match Maxi-Cosi and Quinny pushchairs.
Accessories: Accessories available (all sold separately) for the CabrioFix include footmuffs, summer car seat covers, travel buddies, raincover, and mosquito net.

Installing the Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix
There are 3 options for installing the CabrioFix in the car:
- With the Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix or EasyFix base. The base attaches to the IsoFix anchor points. Light and sound indicators confirm correct installation of the CabrioFix on the FamilyFix base.
- With the Maxi-Cosi EasyBase 2 (sold separately) base, which is attached using the vehicle's regular three-point seatbelt.
- Using the vehicle's regular three-point seatbelt. The CabrioFix may only be installed in a rear-facing position and the carrying handle must be in an upright position. Anti-misuse belt routing prevents incorrect fitting with vehicle seatbelt.
CabrioFix and your baby: safety guidelines
Installation in a car: The CabrioFix may only be installed in a rear-facing position (back to front) in the car. Make sure the fold-down rear seat is locked into position. It is very important a child does not go front-facing too early, as in a 30 mph impact forces are increased by 25 times. When installing the CabrioFix on the passenger seat, position the car seat in the rearmost position; the backrest must be in a fully upright position and the headrest down. More detailed instructions for installing the car seat are located in the pocket at the rear of the car seat.
Airbags: Never use the CabrioFix on a seat equipped with a front airbag, as this can result in death or injury. This does not apply to 'side' airbags.
Seatbelt: The car safety belt must be threaded along all blue markings; for proper installation instructions, see the illustrations on the sticker on the side of the car seat.
Use of harness: Always secure your baby with the harness belt, even when they are not in the car – the harness must be about 0.5 inches below shoulder level for rear-facing car seats. Ensure you clearly hear an audible 'click' when securing the harness. Make sure you can fit no more than one finger (1 cm) between the harness belts and your baby. Ensure the shoulder belts are never twisted or damaged and are straight from the shell and across your baby's shoulders.
Sun exposure: Always cover the car seat when exposed to direct sunlight in the car to avoid the cover, metal, and plastic parts from becoming too hot for your child's skin.
Next stage car seats
The Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix is suitable for babies up to approximately 1 year of age. If the baby's head protrudes past the shell, it is necessary to move to the next stage car seat that offers adequate protection. Recommended next-stage car seats include, for Group 0+/1, the Maxi-Cosi Opal (suitable from 0 to 18 kg, birth to around 3.5 years), and for Group 1, the Maxi-Cosi Pearl (FamilyFix), Axiss, Tobi, PrioriFix, Priori SPS, and Priori XP.
