Product Description

Colour: Total Black

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.

Colour Name: Black Reflection
We bought this car seat as it had the highest recommendation from 'Which?'. It has worked very well - it's easy to fit with the base (purchased separately) and my baby seems very comfortable in it. It comes with an integral sunshade and the covers are removable for washing. Not alot else to say - it does what it is meant to!

Very happy with this.

The Maxi-Cosi Cabriofix and Pebble are practically interchangeable and it is not clear which model you should buy. Maxi-Cosi's website doesn't really help. Anyway from my research here is what you need to know:

1) The Cabriofix is an older design and the Pebble only came out a couple of years ago
2) The Cabriofix is lighter
3) The Cabriofix has a higher safety rating but it is only marginal
4) The Pebble has a more cosy more enclosed shape
5) The Pebble's harness is easily to undo as it has spring loaded
6) Both have wedges to support new-borns
7) Both fit the Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix Car Seat Base
8) Both have an integrated cover
9) Any pushchair which are compatible with the Cabriofix will also be compatible with the Pebble

So there is not much difference between the two and the main reason I went for the Cabriofix is because it is the lighter of the two.

Other things to note:
- This is delivered in Amazon Frustration-Free Packaging. What does this mean? Well it means the manufacturer (Maxi-Cosi in this case) has packaged the seat in the factory within an Amazon box. That way you don't have the usual glossy box but then you are saving the Earth by reducing packaging.
- The price varies by colour. For example, check out the Intense Red design
- You don't have to buy the FamilyFix but it does make life so much easier
- The instruction manual is not very detailed. It is hidden away in the secret storage compartment at the back of the seat
- There is a hidden sun cover tucked away in the rim of the seat

Colour Name: Black Reflection
we bought this as it was one of the only car seats which fitted onto our bugaboo chassis and it was highly recommended from 'Which?'.
We needed 2 bases for our cars - easyfix and isofix versions both bases have indicators which show green when this seat has been correctly fitted into them removing all doubt of an incorrect fit and it can also be fitted with just the seat belt option.
It comes with an integral sunshade located at the back which can be a bit fiddly to tuck back into the slot after use and a small compartment in the back of the seat which i use to store the rain cover.
Handle has 3 positions and is easy to move backwards using the 2 side push in buttons.
All in all a good product.

Bought this seat to go with our Quinny Buzz 3 - fab seat, easy to use, looks great - love the sunshade and daughter loves going in the car, so we figure it must be as comfy as it looks!!! If you can stretch to it buy the isofix base - makes life so much easier and quicker!!!

We did quite a lot of research into car seats before buying this one, over the one that fitted our Mamas & Papas pram to make a travel system. Why? Well mainly the bad press about the upright nature of the Mamas & Papas car seats, as well as the award-winning safety features of this seat. And has it proved to be a good purchase? Most definitely. Easy to use with the Easyfix car base (highly recommended), it's sturdy and safe, and my daughter appears to be comfy in it - in fact she usually sleeps when in it! Not too heavy to carry at the moment, while she's still small. I've surprisingly needed to use the integrated sunshade over winter too, very handy.

We have used the Cabriofix carseat for both children, and have been completely happy with the product.
Coupled with the Easyfix base for Isofix mountings, this lightweight car seat is a real pleasure to use.

Not only did it score extremely highly from the Which? testings, it has some neat features that make day to day use trouble free.

- Very lightweight, which you appreciate all the more when the baby gets to nearly a year old.
- Simple to install. One click to put the seat in place and have secured is a boon when you can be constantly putting it in and out of the car all day.
- A sun canopy which is good for both the car (even with tinted windows), or when you have the baby asleep in the seat outside the car.
- Being able to quickly clean the cover in the washing machine is extremely helpful - some other makes only allow spot cleaning, which isn't ideal.

I can't really think of a negative point for this seat, and would have no hesitation in strongly recommending to anyone wanting an early stage baby carrier.

Really lightweight, fantastic design and fabric. Great choice and you can get matching cosytoes. The pictures really don't do the car seat justice. Would recommend to anyone.
