Just popped down to my local Argos branch in Oldham and picked one up.

It is actually the Evolva 2-3 Isofit that they have in Argos, which is what the Kidfix was previously called before it was renamed in 2009.

It gets the best score in Which? tests for group 2 -3 car seats.

Saving at least £25 over next best price I could find.

So this is the same thing as an Evolva 2-3?

Kidfix is the new name for the Evolva 2-3 Isofit. Argos say Kidfix on their website, but it is actually an Evolva 2-3 Isofit they have, ie up to mid 2009 it was Evolva 2-3 Isofit, then new fabric colours introduced and it was renamed Kidfix

I've got a very a similar looking one to this for £30 for my little one.

No difference apart from the price and brand.

My dad looks almost like Bobby Charlton but could hit a barn door. ;-) Same with car seats, theres more to them than how they look, its how they perform. Wouldnt risk a child in a seat thats £30 over a well established, well tested proven manufaturer like Britax, Whether it looks the same or fancier will make little difference in a crash.

Got two of these for our kids (different pattern/ colours) - sturdy yet flexible, well made, and wouldnt trust anything but the best without wrapping them up in bubblewrap each journey (I'd give them breathing holes ofcourse!) :whistling:

Good price by the way, we paid over £100 each on a special offer, so bargain if you can get it. Who cares if its old naming due to fashion changes.

ya think? not strictly true is it. that's why every car seat gets different safety ratings , cos they are all different. :? there are better cars seats than others, thats why i spend an inordinate amount of time researching the best for my two children, bar bubble wrap and cotton wool i will pay any amount for "safest" car seat.

I have this for my 3 1/2 year old. it get the top rating in high back booster at 77%

Fantastic seat comes top in the Which tests, paid £120 for mine and worth every penny

Cold voters will vote cold on the price being high compared to the cheapo seats about, i know which one i would prefer my kids to be in if involved in a crash

Ratings are just opinions I'm afraid which is what you are basing your purchases on.

In the event of a crash, in what way would this be safer than the one I have?

They may have different ratings but they all have to pass rigourous testing before they can be sold in the first place and if it's not fit for purpose it won't pass and can't be sold.

Wow, there are some opinions being expressed which are quite incredible.

Perhaps folks should read how Which! perform their testing. They state how tests were performed to show which seats performed better under those conditions. They also state that whilst seats do pass Euro standards they do not perform equally well in those tests. However, I do agree that folks can choose to believe whether those tests are comparable to a real world crash but, until a better test comes along, do you have something better to base your judgement on? It's just like NCAP testing for cars....

I have two of these Britax Evolva 2/3 Kidfix/Isofit/Isofix seats (All the same seat but different names used in different years). I will have no other.

This is a great price. Have some H&R from me.

Which do side impact testing something they dont have to test for to pass the official test, they also test at a higher speed.

But they arnt just opinion, they are based on rigorous testing. NPACS, EUROTEST and this is a comparison test used by WHICH? magazine and based on procedures used by the European New Car Assesment Programme (EuroNCAP). i have no idea which £30 car seat you have so cannot tell you where mine is better or yours is worse. it may have better / worse height head protection, side impact protection, it might have or not have isofix which will stop the car seat popping out in an impact, seat belt routing guides to correctly guide the seat belt to the correct neck shoulder level and correct pelvic level to avoid the snapping effect to the pelvis where the child is effectively halved in two as the car shunts forwards with impact.

its not a case of fit for purpose at all. its how it performs under stress, how the stress loads are measured on various parts of the child size and weight dummy when testing front, rear and side crash at 20 mph, 30 mhp and 40 mph, and these in turn convert to a rating system which says all car seats sold in the U.K must pass the same European crash tests which specify requirements for protecting a child. some just perform better than others and that is entirely a parents right to choose which car seat they want to buy and what price, amount of research they do before purchasing to ensure their childs safety.

This is for an ISOFIX seat. I seriously doubt that you'll get one of these for £30.

Personally I wouldn't put any of my kids in a cheap seat. Britax and some other big brands (e.g. Maxi Cosi) have years of experience in making these.

Some things in life are worth more than money.
