At Maxi-Cosi we have carried over 50 million babies home from the hospital. External crash test centres, such as the German Automobile Organisation ADAC (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club), constantly test and approve our Maxi-Cosi car seats and bases for their dynamic safety and ease of use.

When Maxi-Cosi Citi was tested for safety by ADAC in 2016, it received an overall 4-star rating. Our safe and comfortable Citi car seat is equipped with a Side Protection System which, in case of a hard side impact, will absorb the force. This allows you to rest assured that your baby is well-protected at all times.

Lightweight, essential infant carrier

Because we want to make things that work for real families, Maxi-Cosi Citi has been constructed to be as light as possible. Along with its ergonomic carry handle, our Citi is easy to lift and carry, wherever you go.

Despite its light weight, at Maxi-Cosi we do not compromise your little one’s comfort. The seat has extra padding to ensure your baby’s comfort.

Removable cover

After using our Citi for a while, the seat is likely to get dirty. Your little one may get car sick at times. No matter what happens on the road, Maxi-Cosi’s car seat cover is machine washable and can easily be removed.

Travel system

Going for a short trip to visit the grandparents? How about a quick stop at the supermarket? Or a refreshing stroll outside? Take your little one along in our lightweight car seat, or use in combination with a stroller by attaching Citi to it in just a click.

Our car seat combined with a Maxi-Cosi stroller creates the perfect match, giving you a travel system that’s complete and practical.

Maxi-Cosi Citi is approved for use in the airplane (TUV certification), and it’s easy to take with you on holiday, making it easy for your little one to come along.

Why do babies have to travel in a rear-facing position?
Babies have a large and heavy head compared to the rest of their body. In addition, their neck muscles are not yet fully developed. If the baby is transported in a forward-facing position, his or her head will be thrown forward in the event of a head-on collision. This can cause serious neck injury and may even be fatal. By placing the baby in a rear-facing position, the forces exerted during the crash will be distributed across the baby’s entire back. Discover more about rearward facing travelling.
Can I install the Maxi-Cosi Citi on the front passenger seat?
Yes, you may install the Maxi-Cosi Citi on the front passenger seat, but only if the airbag has been deactivated.
From what age can the support pillow be removed from the Maxi-Cosi car seat?
The support pillow provides your child with added comfort right after birth. There is no specific age at which the support pillow should be removed from the Maxi-Cosi car seat.This depends on the size of your child. Once you notice that your child is no longer lying comfortably because his or her head is lying on the ‘roll’, you can remove the support pillow from the Maxi-Cosi car seat.
When should my child switch from his first Maxi-Cosi baby car seat to the next car seat?
We recommend that your child remain in the first car seat, Group 0 or 0+ (0-13 months) i.e. facing backwards, as long as possible because this is the safest and usually the most comfortable position. As long as the back of your child's head is fully supported by the plastic shell, we recommend using the infant car seat. The length of the child’s legs is not an important factor here. It is extremely unwise to put a child into a larger, forward-facing car seat too early.
Can the Maxi-Cosi Citi be used in an airplane?
Yes, the Maxi-Cosi Citi can be used in an airplane. The seat has special certification for this purpose (TUV certifitcate).
Should the carrying handle on my infant car seat (Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix/Citi/Pebble) be placed in an upright position when installed in the car?
The carrying handle is part of the safety concept of Maxi-Cosi infant car seats and must always be placed upright when driving. This also applies when used with the FamilyFix, EasyFix or Easybase 2 frame. Read the user manual for the car seat. Placing the carrying handle in the upright position protects the child in the event that the car seat rotates towards the back of the rear car seat. The carrying handle also protects against any large objects that might fly through the air near the child. Once the child is securely fastened in the harnesses, his or her head and arms will not hit the carrying handle in the event of an accident.
