Fits easily with the same Maxi-Cosi Isofix base used by the Pebble baby seat. It's a no-brainer if your little one is ready to progress from the Pebble to a forward facing seat. As with all Maxi-Cosi products I've tried, it's built like a tank and not super lightweight, so bear that in mind if you will be moving it frequently or if fitting a car seat in your vehicle is awkward. On the flip side, the build quality lends reassurance as to safety, and the great thing about the base is that, once fitted, it's a quick and easy process to lift the seat in and out to transfer between vehicles (we have a base in each of our cars) or to carry a sleeping baby inside if you get home and don't want to wake him/her.

A brilliant car seat which fits with the Isofix base we bought for the Pebble. My daughter loves being in this - she seems comfortable, very safe (I'm sure all car seats are, but as a parent strapping her in I feel positive that she's very secure in this seat and its fixings), and loves being able to look out of the window.

Very impressed with this car seat. Our daughter had outgrown the Pebble seat and this was the next logical choice to fit the maxi cosi family fix base. Our daughter enjoys facing forward in the car and the seat will (hopefully) last her quite a while. We do miss the carry handle that the Pebble had, but then it's a totally different design for younger babies. All in all a well built, sturdy, yet comfy car seat.

We used a Maxi Cosi Pebble and we had the family-fix base and that pushed us in this direction. We bought a Maxi Cosi Axiss (for my wife's car, because it's the frendliest car seat ever) and this one (for my car). We took into consideration probabily everything before buying the Pearl and I don't regret getting it at all. It's extremely comfy, very easy to manouver and one of the few car seats with "very good" results in crush-tests (about 5 seats in this category). If you don't already have the family-fix base this is an expensive car seat and probabily is hard to choose it but rest assure that if you buy it you won't regret it, not for a minute.
