Maxi-Cosi has launched the world’s first child car seat with built-in airbags, and it’s on sale now in the U.K.


The AxissFix Air car seat is as streamlined and easy to use as other i-Size seats by Maxi-Cosi, with a new level of unseen protection that kicks in when you need it most thanks to built-in airbags.

AxissFix airbag technology is the safest solution possible in forward facing Maxi-Cosi seats. Its advanced safety technology is invisible during normal use, so the only difference you’ll notice is your enhanced peace of mind. The seat combines latest i-Size safety regulation (R129) with 360° swiveling to offer the best ease of use. You can use it forward-facing or rear-facing (to approx. 2 years up to 87 cm) to suit your child’s stage of development.

The AxissFix Air is the award-winning car seat specialist’s new flagship model and has been developed with mobile airbag company, Helite.

The seat, which is suitable for children between 61 and 105 centimeters (2 feet and 3 feet, 5 inches) tall, features Isofix tethering hooks and a 360-degree rotating base for easier installation, plus two small airbags located in the shoulder pads of the harness connected to a CO2 cartridge. In the event of a collision, a seat-mounted sensor is instantly triggered and the airbags inflate within 0.05 seconds.
