Product features and accessories

Seat

With extra soft padding, the seat material of the Solution M-Fix is comfortable to the touch; which is great for long car journeys.  Its style is minimal yet elegant, and the seat unit is deep and wide – so perfect for the older child. The headrest has 12 possible positions so you can be sure to find the perfect position, no matter your child’s height.

The covers are easy to remove and machine washable, so it is easy to remove crumbs and spillages from them. The headrest has 3 different recline positions, using a lever at the rear of the seat.

Suitability

The Cybex website has a great guide that lists which cars are compatible with the Solution M-Fix Car Seat.

Protection

The Cybex Solution M-Fix Car Seat has multiple safety features and complies to ECE R-44/04 Supplement 7 regulations. The shell of the seat is energy-absorbing, so absorbs the impact in a collision.

Due to its reclining headrest, this car seat prevents your child’s head from falling forward whilst asleep, shifting the balance point of the child’s head slightly back. It also provides side-impact protection. The child’s head will remain in the safety zone.

On either side of the seat is adjustable linear side-impact protection. These can be individually adjusted to fit the interior of the car.

Accessories

With replacement covers available (from £57) there is no need to worry about snacking on the move as the cover can be whipped off and washed, using a replacement cover in the interim. You may also find the Britax Kick Mats useful which hang on the back of your front seats; protecting them from excitable kicking. Another one is the 2-pack of Britax Car Sun Shades. These keep baby protected while on sunny journeys.
