Maxi-Cosi Axiss: enjoy a better view

The Maxi-Cosi Tobi is designed to ensure that you and your child enjoy your days out together. The Tobi is a forward-facing Group 1 car seat appropriate for children weighing from 9 to 18 kg, or 9 months to around 3.5 years old.

Stay cool with a Maxi-Cosi Tobi Summer Cover, sold separately

As of September 2006, the use of safety belts in cars and approved child safety devices is mandatory for all children under 12 years old, or less than 1.35 metres in height, for transport by car in the front or back seat. Every Maxi-Cosi car seat model, defined in the UN safety standard ECE R44.04, is specially designed for each age as your child grows from birth to the age of 12 years.

  • It is always the weight, not the age, of a child that dictates the choice of car seat.
  • 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.
The Tobi offers 5 recline positions

Why Choose the Maxi-Cosi Axiss?

Higher riding position

The Maxi-Cosi Tobi car seat makes it easy to see out of the car window thanks to a base that positions the seat higher up in the car.


The Tobi is installed using a standard three-point seatbelt and a clever belt routing system. The seatbelt tensioner ensures the seatbelt is secured extra tightly.

Colour indicator

This Group 1 car seat has a colour indicator to show that the seat is locked for driving.

Right protection

The Maxi-Cosi Tobi also features side protection for extra safety in case of side impact in a collision.

Headrest and harness

Both the adjustable headrest and the harness of the Tobi go together to fit your growing child and offer optimum comfort and safety. The height of the headrest and harness belts can be adjusted at the same time at the front. Harness belt retention hooks keep the harness out of the way when placing your child or taking him/her out of the seat.

Recline positions

The Maxi-Cosi Tobi offers a useful five comfortable recline positions for your little one, from sitting to sleeping. Pull the positioning handle under the front of the seat upwards and then pull or push the seat forwards or backwards.

Car seat cover

The Tobi's seat cover can be removed for washing. It is advisable to buy an extra cover when purchasing the car seat, so that you can continue to use it even when the cover is being washed and dried.


Accessories available (sold separately) for the Maxi-Cosi Tobi include the summer cover, play tray, and pocket (holder for drinks and bottles).

Installing the Maxi-Cosi Tobi

Only use the Maxi-Cosi Tobi on a front-facing seat with an automatic three-point belt, provided it has been approved according to the ECE R16 standard or similar. Correct fitting of the car seatbelt is essential for the safety of your child. The car seat must be attached in the correct sequence along the red marks on the Maxi-Cosi Tobi.

Remove the headrest of the seat where the Maxi-Cosi Tobi is to be used in the car if it is in the way. Do not forget to put the headrest back when the seat is used again.

Safety guidelines

Installation in a car

The Maxi-Cosi Tobi is intended for car use only. The Axiss must always be placed in a forward-facing position in the car. Lock fold-down rear seats before installing the Axiss.


The Maxi-Cosi Tobi may be used in the front seat or in the back seat, even if the car is equipped with an airbag. However, it is recommended for installation in the back seat. If this is not possible, make sure that, if installing on a front seat equipped with an airbag, the seat is in the rearmost position.

Use of harness

Always secure your baby with the harness belt, even when he/she is not in the car. Ensure you clearly hear an audible 'click' when securing the harness. The belt system should be adjusted according to the height of the child. 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.


Check to make sure the headrest of the Maxi-Cosi Tobi is adjusted to the proper height.

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

Wait to switch your child to a next stage car seat when they have reached the maximum weight limit, or if the top of their head protrudes above the top edge of the seat. Recommended next-stage car seats include, for Group 2/3, the Maxi-Cosi Rodi AirProtect, Rodi XP, Rodi SPS, Fero, and FeroFix.

Short and Sweet review - I cannot recommend this seat highly enough for safety. My 2 year old was in the back of our car when we were hit in the rear at a speed of 40-50mph. The car is a write off and i suffered severe bruising and whip lash (in the drivers seat) but my little girl came away with no damage at all. You always ask yourself why you spend that bit extra on a car seat and now i know why. We now have to replace this car seat as although it has no obvious damage the insurance company told us to replace it and we will definitely purchasing another 'Tobi'

Bought this seat for my 9 month old after some research on the internet. Previous seat (infant carrier) was also maxi-cosi and I was happy with the brand.

It is reasonably easy to fit (once I was shown how to use my knees to secure it whilst tightening the car seat belt)! Once secure it is a great seat, easy to tighten and recline. I noted that you can only recline other brands before the child sits in the seat which seemed hopeless!

Have to say I also experienced the problem of the belts not tightening at same time however this was easily rectified by adjusting the belts at the back of the seat (the manual explains how to do this).

If you have bought this seat I would recommend you log on to the manufacturer website where they will send you a free attachment to stop crumbs getting into the belt tightening mechanism.

Only gripe with this seat is the price but you get what you pay for in the end and if you shop around you can get a good deal.

When choosing a car seat we wanted something that ticked all the boxes. In particular we saw my sister struggled getting her car seat secure in the car when fitting, mainly due to having to feed the seat belt through the back of the seat. We have 2 cars so wanted something which we could move easily. This car seat does not disappoint, it is as simple as putting seat belt over the seat, putting in the holes at the top, pulling belt tight and fastening the tabs. Takes around a minute and requires average effort, certainly easier than my sisters.

The car seat appear very comfortable, my daughter sometimes takes to sitting in it when we've got it in the house so is a hit with her. Never once has she complained about it (she's nearly 3 and been in it since she was 1).

I'm also impressed how easy it is to adjust the headrest (2 seconds to pull out and move up or down), my sister commented on it when we took my niece out and had to move up, I think hers is a lot more difficult to adjust.

The recline feature is also very simple and straightforward for when they fall asleep in the car. I can adjust when I'm driving by simply reaching back with one hand and pulling the lever (again a 2 second job).

I also love the tightness indicator (turns from grey to green when tight enough). I see other reviews complaining about this and I can see where they're coming from. I found when I pull tight the indicator turns green, I believe most people are leaving it there which is the problem. I've found you then need to tug hard on the straps which will loosen the tension again. You need to repeat this process until the indicator stays green (usually only takes one pull and retighten).

Having had the maxi-cosi cabrio for the new born stage, which was an excellent car seat, we were confident that it was worth paying for the maxi cosi tobi for the next stage. We put our daughter in it from 10 months and still, 10 months later it is the one piece of equipment that I absolutely LOATHE and is sure to put me in a foul mood! The straps are designed to be easy to get the child's arms through but in actual fact mean that it is much more difficult to get them to fit closely to them and just normal floppy straps like the cabrio would have been much better. But my BIGGEST frustration with this seat is my daughter wriggles out of it soooo easily - I try tightening the straps as much as I can (this in itself is really difficult) and even then she can wriggle out - she does it on the roads in london but musch worse still, the motorway, and when I am driving alone it is a nightmare as I can't just pull over get out of the car and sort it out. And when I ever have done, she just wriggles out again. The straps are set quite wide so I think maybe the seat is better for when they are older as it is simply not safe. She is a stocky and above average in height 20 month old by the way!
I had seen reviews about the seat when I was originally researching it and seen that people had mentioned wriggling out but I stupidly chose to ignore it - PLEASE PLEASE get a different seat - you think you are doing the best for your child going for the pricey good quality one with the nead support but the design of the Tobi is NOT GOOD !
I might also mention that since whinging about it most other friends have said they have exactly the same problem with theirs and wish they'd bought a different one!!

This is a great car seat, good quality, well built and sturdy. The seat is tall enough to allow children to look out of the window and the recline function has just enough tilt to stop their heads bobbing so they can get to sleep easily.
The only reason I have given it a score of 4/5 is that in our Hyundai people carrier (Trajet) it dosnt fit the seats quite as well as I would like due to their height in comparison to the belt anchors. In the Audi A6 however it fits perfectly, the best non iso-fix seat we've ever used.
The child straps occasionally catch at the back too when tightening, but this is a matter of seconds to rectify.
Despite these two minor drawbacks I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this seat.
