Why Maxi Cosi Baby Car Seats Are The Best Buy In The World

As your bump grows, it is time to start thinking about a baby car seat. As part of your baby shopping list, your baby car seat is the most important to get right. We have bundled all the information you need, to be able to choose your baby car seat.

Let's start with the basics:

  • Did you know that it’s against the law for a baby to travel in the car without car seat? Even during that first trip home from the hospital it is not allowed;
  • A baby car seat makes you feel confident about your baby’s safety;
  • It’s recommended not to buy a second-hand car seat, but to buy a brand new one instead. This way, you’ll be 100% sure that no incidents have happened to it in the past;
  • Installing your car seat with an ISOFIX base, makes the installation of your car seat easier;
  • Maxi-Cosi offers different strollers that attach to the baby car seat, for a complete travel system.

Law on baby car seats in Singapore

Did You Know?

The law in Singapore requires anyone below the height of 1.35m to be secured with an appropriate restraint, booster seat or adjustable seatbelt. Those 1.35m or taller are expected to wear a seatbelt irrespective of age. Under the Road Traffic Act, drivers and passengers found not using a seatbelt or appropriate restraints could be fined up to $1,000 or jailed up to three months, or both.

Ten Reasons To Buy Maxi Cosi Baby Car Seats 

Let us do a countdown of why you should choose a Maxi Cosi car seat over other brands. 

#1 Carried 60 million babies home from hospital since 1984

Founded in the Netherlands in 1984, Maxi-Cosi launched Europe’s first modern baby car seat. Maxi-Cosi car seats have carried over 60 million babies home from the hospital. Maxi Cosi's track record is unmatched in Europe.

#2 Maxi Cosi Car Seats Are Made For European Cars

Maxi-Cosi is also the only child car seat brand to have their car seats crash-tested up to 70km/h. If you are driving a Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, Volvo, Mini, Volkswagen or a European branded car you should choose Maxi Cosi. Their car seats are slimmer and less bulky and fit smaller vehicles.

#3 Maxi Cosi Car Seats Are Made For Japanese Cars

The models that we import into Singapore are designed to fit Japanese cars as well. Japanese car seat belts are shorter than European cars. Large bulky infant carriers sometimes cannot be secured safely. If you are driving a Toyota, Honda, Nissan, Lexus or a Japanese branded car you should choose Maxi Cosi. Their car seats are slimmer and less bulky and fit smaller vehicles.

#5 World's Safest Car Seat - Tested To 70 km/h

In our ultra-modern car seat test facilities, we've got everything necessary to design, build and test car seats. Our Maxi-Cosi test centres bring together the industry’s best research, design and technology to foster cutting-edge innovation of baby, toddler and children’s products. 

How do car seat crash tests work? 

Using cameras and height-specific dummies with up to 300 sensors, we can measure exactly how well our car seats will protect your child in a car crash.  To be certain we've achieved optimum levels of safety, we'll carry out up to 1,000 crash tests during the development of a car seat. We also use these child car seat crash test results to constantly evolve and improve for your peace of mind. 

Why do we use our own car seat safety tests? 

By having our own research facilities, we can run far more than the minimum crash tests required to bring a product to market. We test our car seats from the start of the development phase and through to final production. And the testing doesn't stop there. To be sure our manufacturing process is flawless, we continue to test one seat after every 5,000 that are made. This gives us and our customers, total confidence in everything we make.  

#6 iSize - The Car Seat Standard That Is Law In 2023

When you’re choosing a new car seat, it has to meet ECE R129 or R44 safety standards. If it doesn't, you'll be breaking the law and you could be putting your child in danger. Here we explain ‘what is i-Size?’ to help you to decide which is the best car seat for you.

What is i-Size? 

i-Size is a European car seat safety standard that was launched in 2013. The R129/i-Size car seat standard is the most up-to-date safety standard for car seats. iSize standard is mandatory from September 2023 in Europe.

What makes i-Size different from ECE R44? 

The older ECE R44 standard is based on the weight of your child. By contrast, i-Size is height-based.  

The guidelines on what car seat is suitable are based on a child's height. Usually parents are more aware of the height of their child than their weight. This means that i-Size makes it easier to be sure you are using the right car seat for your child. 

i-Size safety for your peace of mind 

i-Size car seats are considered to be the safest, with improved head and neck protection. That's because: 

  • Side-impact crash test results are assessed as part of the i-Size standard.
  • i-Size safety tests are completed using advanced Q-dummies, which have more sensors than the dummies used for the R44 test.  
  • Your baby must travel in the very safe rear-facing position up to the minimum recommended age of 15 months. Some i-Size car seats can even be used rear-facing until your child is 105 cm tall, which is around four years old.

  5. Recline Position. We use technology that allows parents to adjust the car seat to different recline positions, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit for their child.

  6. Grow Together Adjustment System. This technology allows the headrest and harness to be easily adjusted as the child grows, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit at all times.

  7. Ventilation System. This technology helps to keep the child cool and comfortable by circulating air throughout the car seat. (ClimaFlow)
