We had the Cybex Sirona before our two outgrew it, and we now have two of these. Fantastic seats, with a very good safety rating in the stringent German car seat tests. Good price too. Highly recommended. Heat added.
As above, we have had one of these for a few years, definitely worth it!
Got this last week for a few quid more. Dunno whether it’s worth the time to haggle for a difference refund. Good car seat although I’m still unsure what, if any purpose the plastic x-fix attachment clips (that attach to the isofix hooks) serve? I can’t even attach them in certain cars.

The guides are for use in cars where the isofix points are buried deep in the upholstery of the vehicle seat. In some cars, like my parents VW Touran and my Peugeot 5008 you can see the isofix points just by looking at the vehicle seat so you don’t need the plastic guides. They are an optional extra.

Cool. I thought as much although the manual doesn’t say they are optional so felt a bit dirty not being able to get them into certain cars. Oddly it’s my missus’ 208 with isofix points that are deeply hidden between the seat gap that it’s impossible to attach the x-fix attachments making them seem unfit for purpose. Car seat attaches firmly without them so if anyone else buys this don’t be too concerned by them not attaching.
I've just looked up the German ADAC tests for this and the x2 fix.
This one has low risk of injury in frontal crash, low risk in side crash.
The x2 fix has low in frontal crash, but improves to very low in a side crash.

The only negative ADAC mention is that it's a narrow seat - presumably they mean for the child so if you have a broad shoulderd child it might be snug.

For the money it's a decent booster.

If you have attached it to the isofix then you don't need to strap the car seat in when it's not in use. A loose car seat would become a projectile in a car accident.

That its narrow is a positive if you need to fit other car seats or a passenger in the back.
What’s the safest car seat for a 4yr old + ?

(I don’t care about price)
We have one of these, it’s a great seat and narrower than some which we needed to be able to fit with other seats

Depends what sort of seat you are talking about and the height and weight of the child. The absolute safest option would be an extended rear facing seat that has passed the Swedish plus test, for example the Axkid Minikid. That would last an average child until around 6yo.

Yes, but the X2-fix version is narrow for the child but wide to fit in the car because of the bulky side impact protection.

Not sure which part of my comment your comment is referring to but the points I made had nothing to do with strapping the car seat in when not in use or anything of that nature. I have updated my original comment to make it clearer about which guide clips I was referring (The seemingly optional x-fix guide attachments that come with the seat and nothing to do with the guide clips through which the belt is fed.)

All the same, your points are valid (albeit unrelated).

The x2 has extra SIP which i guess is the basis of the reduced risk of injury in side impacts... unfortunately that adds another 10cm to the width of the seat meaning you won't be able to get 3 across if needed

How is this in comparison to m fix and s fix?


An older model without additional SIP meaning it's a lot narrower and will allow 3 across in a lot of cars
M fix SL seems to have the SIP built in on both sides. M fix and S fix can be release on just one side. I suppose M fix SL is taking up the most space.

Those clips are not supposed to be used in the car. They are meant to be binned and protect the pointy isofix point when you buy the carseat

Nope. You’re way off here. In fact the isofix points retract into the base and there are no clips like the ones you describe. These are special attachments that come attached with a cable tie if I remember correctly that the manual clearly says to insert into the isofix points before inserting the chair.

They are the isofix guides I think are being referred to. They make aligning the isofix bars with the cars brackets easier when the isofix on cars that the hole in the upholstery is bigger than the placement of the isofix brackets. They are optional to use.
