I need to ask - whats the difference between isofix and non-isofix from operational point of view?

Isofix has 2 clamps that connect to metal bars in your seat (Most modern cars have them) and a stablising bar that goes to the foot well. The bars are attached to the car chassis making the seat much more secure.
Non isofix are fitted using the cars seat belts which will have an element of flex.

In groups 0 & 1 (up to 4 years) both styles of seat then have a 5 point harness to strap the child in.

In groups 2-3 (booster seats) the child is often strapped in using just the cars ordinary seat belts. Most booster seats don't have isofix and I'm not sure how much benefit that add at that point. You can get them though and you'll be looking at £150+.

I have 1 isofix seat and 1 none as my wife's car is too old. The isofix definitely feels a lot more robust but both do the job. Haven't crash tested either thankfully oO.
My daughters now coming up for 4 and I'll be getting 2 none isofix boosters. They're a lot cheaper and light weight (great for hols and transferring to grandparents cars). She likes to see out of the window so hates the seats with excessive side protection.

Worth noting that the isofix bars can sometimes be quite fiddly to fit. I wouldn't say there is any difference in speed of fitting between the 2 types.

Oh and the site seems to be working now on IE at least.

Purchased this at the weekend after reserving. This is for my car as hubby stole mine and 4 year old can't wait to use it!

Isofix is designed to make fitting the seat much easier. It takes the risk of not fitting a belted seat tight enough. To get a belted seat as secure as you can you do really have to kneel on it and push it right into the seat.


Just as a correction to MrWani.... there are Isofix group 2-3 seats for under £150. I got the Britax Kid-fix sict, an isofix seat, one of the highest scoring seats on Which? for £82 from Amazon about 10 months ago.

In addition to safety, the big benefit of Isofix is the ease of clicking a baby seat in and out of the car without fiddling with seatbelts, especially if you regularly use the baby seat in a pushchair/travel system for example. However for a child older than 9-12 months I'm not sure it's worth paying extra for Isofix.

My 4 year old would love a better view out of the window but there is no way I would compromise on her safety for a better view. Decent side impact protection is so important to reduce the potential to get hurt in an accident. These cheapy car seats have very poor Which? reviews - the Graco one was a "don't buy". Given how long they're used for, I would much rather pay £150 for a decent, highly-rated car seat. The ones with the best Which? ratings include Recaro Monza Nova (with or without isofix), Cybex Solution X or Britax Kidfix SICT. Assuming we will use it until she is at least 10, that's only £25 a year to keep my child as safe as I can. Bargain!

FYI if your car doesn't have isofix you might be able to retro fit it. I just did that on my volvo S40, £15 for the isofix plate from volvo. Two bolts and 10 mins is all it takes.
Worth a go, bearing in mind that I haven't seen a belted car seat getting over 65% from Which...

That's an ISOfix base system. Stays permanently in teh car and you can just click the compatible carrier in and out.

In my experience BMW E46 model and Vectra 07 the ISOfix system is no easier to fit than the seat belt only versions.
