it has to fit your car, <ul><li>be easy to use, </li></ul>light enough so that you carry it along with you. And most of us also want it to look good.
Background In europe Maxi Cosi is a household name. In fact, the brand is so well known that people use it as a term referring to any old car seat. You have a Maxi Cosi, just as you would have a stroller, a crib, or a car for that matter. The Mico is the US version of the european Cabriofix, a model that has been around for many years. Adjusted to fit US standards and safety regulations.
My favorite features <ul><li>Attaches to the Quinny Buzz and Quinny Zapp for a travel system: This is my favorite feature! When I go shopping I just lift the seat out of the base and snap it into place in my Quinny Zapp extra stroller that I keep folded in the trunk. My little jewel can keep on sleeping comfortably without disturbance as I hit the stores. This works just as well with the Uppababy Vista, which is a bit more sturdy stroller. </li></ul>
Cozi Dozi infant insert: The seat grows with my child(he has already outgrown the insert)
4 position harness adjustment: Keeps it comfortable as the baby grows.
Multi-position rotating canopy: Keeps the sun out of the eyes. Since the canopy is integrated in the seat it´s easy to tuck away when you don´t use it without risking not to bring it with you.
Stay-in-car adjustable base: As mentioned earlier this is a winner. The seat easily snaps into place, and with an on hand pull of lever it´s released to carry off.
LATCH equipped: Makes the base installation a snap.
The seat is sleek in design and it doesn´t hurt that it´s pretty to look at. I’ve had seats before that were much bulkier and with cheaper looking materials.
It´s also lighter to carry than most other seats.
Safety Good looks and easy handling apart. Safety is of course the main reason I chose this seat over others. Maxi Cosi has a long tradition of being the manufacturer with the safest seats on the market. In europe the Mico equivalent, the Cabriofix, has been top tested in accordance to the very high european safety standards. Key features are: <ul><li>EPP Foam for shock absorbtion </li></ul><ul><li>5-point harness with front adjuster </li></ul><ul><li>Side Impact Protection </li></ul>
