I had used both the Cabrio fix car seat and the easy fix base for my children and I found it very easy to put the car seat or take the car seat out from the base. Few times that I took the taxi, I found it harder to put the belt around the car seat. Therefore, I feel that if you would like to buy the Cabrio fix car seat, you should buy the Easy Fix base for more safety of your baby and your convenience .

Do you have any experiences of using the two? Would like to share your opinion ? Please do so via comment box, I would love to hear from you!

    1. Thanks for your comment Daniel. I agree with you, securing the car seat with the isofix base is a safer and more convenient option than securing the car seat with the seat belt. If the parent has only one car then there would be no need to move the isofix base and would have to be installed only once in the car.

  1. Thanks for the in-depth review and the recommendation. Since you used this brand for your own needs, I feel that this recommendation carries a lot of weight. Thanks again for the thorough and exhaustive explanation!
