PRODUCT: Maxi-Cosi Axiss Car Seat (www.dorel.co.uk)Maxi-Cosi Axiss

DESCRIPTION: A Group 1 forward-facing car seat for children between 9 months and approximately 3.5 years (9-18kg). Features include rotating seat shell, adjustable headrest, multi-reclining positions, belt hooks, and 5-point harness. Available in four designs: Black Reflection, Tango Red, Lily Pink and Roasted Brown.

INSTALLATION: The Axiss seat is designed to be a universal front-facing car seat, preferably for use in the rear passenger seats of the car. It is very easy and straightforward to both install and remove, as the car’s own 3-point seat belt is used to secure the seat in position through various guides around the base and shell. A seat belt tensioner on the back ensures that the base is held tightly against the rear seats.

GOOD POINTS: This is a really innovative design of car seat which iMaxi-Cosi Axisss radically different from other such products. Rather than having to reach over to strap in and remove your child from the car seat, the whole seat rotates 90o on its base for easier access, and can be set (via a switch on the underside of the base) to swivel either left or right depending on which side of the car the seat is installed in. Rotating the seat is easily operated by simply pulling the respective left or right handle on the side of the seat. A red-green indicator on the top of the base allows you to check that the seat is locked securely back into the forward-facing position ready for travel.

A further feature of the Axiss car seat is that it has a choice of six different positions from sitting through to semi-reclining, which is ideal for long car journeys and allows your child to sleep more comfortably. These positions can be altered at any time simply by pressing the button on the front of the seat and releasing it once the desired position has been selected.

The seat is very sturdy and well padded with foam to give a comfortable ride, and is covered in a sMaxi-Cosi Axissoft fabric which can be removed for washing.

The car seat caters well for your growing child, with adjustable height headrest and shoulder straps. Securing your child into the seat is an easy process using the five-point harness which has padded crotch and shoulder straps for added comfort. A control button on the front slackens off and tightens the shoulder straps to enable you to fit your child into the seat quickly and securely. The seat also has a very useful belt hook on either side, which holds the shoulder straps aside to facilitate seating your child, a great feature when you have your hands already full!

The instructions manual is very comprehensive and easy to follow, and there is even a handy compartment on the back of the seat to store the instructions for quick and easy access. The Axiss car seat meets all appropriate safety standards.

In all this is a well thought-out car seat with some great and very original design features. In our opinion it is one of the best Group 1 seats on the market, and provides maximum safety and comfort to give you complete piece of mind during any journey.

BAD POINTS: None really, except that the seat cover is a little fiddly to remove and re-fit, and can only be hand washed.

PRICE: Approx. £200
