Maxi Cosi makes pretty car seats… in the words of weeSpring parents, they’re sleek and stylish, and definitely the ones you’ll gravitate toward in the store if you’re trying to avoid baby-stuff-overload. Downside: we’ve heard installation can be more than tricky… the base won’t install securely in the majority of cars. With a 5 pound start and 22 pound limit, it also doesn’t fit preemies or older infants. Our friends at The Car Seat Lady suggest the Cybex Aton 2 as an alternative.

REGRET: 27 WANT: 75
  • Thought I would love it. It’s hard to install, the straps are vicious to loosen, and it’s hard to release from the base. May 03, 2024

  • Had this car seat with one of my kids, it was great Jan 18, 2024

  • Bought for my son but ended up going with Uppa Mesa Max. Didn’t like the how high the car seat was with the adapter for the vista stroller. Jan 10, 2024

  • This car seat is built very well and is very comfortable for my baby. Material is high end and very easy to install. Its just a tad too heavy for me. Oct 04, 2023

    My daughter loves this car seat. It's nicely padded, not too heavy and easy to get in and out the car. Best thing is that my LO is comfortable in it. We had a different car seat and she hated it. Apr 25, 2023

  • Loved this infant car seat. I was able to use it for a long time. Great buy Apr 14, 2023

  • Used this for my son from birth. He outgrew it fairly quickly at 9 months his shoulders were cramped but I'd 100% buy it again because it was the most comfortable newborn carseat. Feb 09, 2023

  • Th car seat is light , has european and american belt clips and its easy to carry around Jun 27, 2022

  • It’s a great looking car seat and it’s light weight but the material is so cheap. I can see the foam in the car seat 90% of the time. This also gets stuck to the base every time. Jun 17, 2022

  • Got us through the early days with no problems! I used adapters to slide it right onto my Bugaboo after smoothly detaching from base and removing from the car so I never had to wake my sleeping baby!! Jun 08, 2022

  • Love it, very lightweight yet sturdy and my baby looks very comfy in it. Comes with newborn inserts and love that it’s washable! Apr 12, 2022

  • Loved this car seat ! (&stroller) it’s lightweight for carrying until they reach the limits, comfortable for baby of all sizes, and easy to clean with the material that wipes off. Easy to use Mar 30, 2022

  • Mixed feelings on this car seat. It attaches and removes from the base really easily which is awesome. We have some issues with tightening the straps and only one side getting tight. Mar 29, 2022

    Love it. It’s easy for me to carry,not too heavy or awkward. Mar 27, 2022

  • I didn’t love this car seat, the canopy was difficult to operate rear facing, it wasn’t the easiest or lightest to install or carry and I won’t be reusing in the future. Oct 25, 2021

  • Loved my maxi cosi infant! It wasn’t the lightest but easy to clean and felt heavy duty. Jun 03, 2021

  • This car seat is great in a way with material and babies who are slightly on the smaller side. My little guy is growing out of it fast, it has a narrow top half of the car seat. His shoulders are snug May 10, 2021

  • It is very light weight. I personally don't like the shape of the handle. It makes it hard to carry. And the handle also creaks. I do love the material of the seat fabric. Apr 20, 2021

  • I used this car seat with 2 babies. They each used it for 18 months until they were ready to upgrade to a bugger one. It is very sturdy. The only issue is the straps need adjusting every now and them Mar 31, 2021

  • Lightweight but still very safe and supportive. Love that it came in tan to match my car interior. Easy to clean. Mar 09, 2021

  • Lightweight, to not add extra weight when carrying. The material inside is so cushy and soft. Additional infant padding feels almost like a memory foam. My 3 month old definitely loves this seat. Mar 03, 2021

  • Did not love this car seat when my daughter was an infant. She always screamed in the car (which may or may not have been due to the seat), and eventually the canopy broke off/couldn't be replaced. Dec 22, 2020

  • Eh, it's ok. It fits up to a bigger size than most, but it also takes up a lot of space in the car and the handle feels pretty flimsy to us. Not my favorite, but not terrible either. Aug 26, 2020

    Regular no good or bad Aug 14, 2020

  • Hated it! It actually got stuck and I couldn’t drive home as the adapters were stuck in the car seat Aug 14, 2020

  • We had the infant car seat when we had our daughter 6 years ago and loved it. Jul 31, 2020

  • This was given to me as a gift for my daughter. I loved it. Super light weight and easy to take down form car. Jul 30, 2020

  • I Absolutely Love this infant car seat. It’s easy to clean and very compact and light. Not to mention it has very high safety ratings. The straps are easy to adjust and the base was simple to install Jun 23, 2020

  • We love the material and that this seat is light weight! Would buy again!! Jun 13, 2020

    Our baby seems to prefer this car seat over our other infant one. It feels really comfortable and lightweight. I wish the canopy stayed attached but it just won’t hold. We love it otherwise. Apr 26, 2020

  • We have a Mico Max,it's plush & the fabric is nice,seems a bit narrow inside & I have small babies. Constantly have to fix the canopy,easy to install. Purchased different strap covers, these are stiff Apr 06, 2020

  • This was the winner for us. Lightweight, safe, very well made, and stylish. We love this brand and think it’s far superior to the common ones here in the US. Apr 01, 2020
