At the forefront of safety, Britax have paved the way in car seat innovation for years and today we want to look at their high back booster; the Britax Kidfix II XP SICT, a group 2/3 car seat that offers increased side impact protection, a sturdy isofix fitting system and the innovative SecureGuard Technology to offer optimum safety.
Out of the box, the Kidfix looks great with its striking colours, sleek plastic mouldings and little safety features that you don’t usually see on a high back booster but, more about those later…
Installation into the car is done using the isofix points which are located at the back of the seat but of course this seat can also just be secured into the car using the three point seat belt if isofix is not available. When installed the car seat definitely feels super sturdy and the actual fitting was quick and easy, which is worth noting if you need to move this from car to car.
The outer wings of the Kidfix features innovative SICT technology which is adjusted on the side closest to the door to improve side impact protection in the event of a collision. This can be adjusted upon installation of the car seat and in conjunction with the padded headrest; the Kidfix offers great protection for your toddler.
When your little one is in the car seat the belt is quick and easy to fasten around them, as you pull the belt over their lap, the SecureGuard Technology ensures optimal positioning. The only thing left to do is secure the XP pad into place across their chest which works to divert 30% of energy forces away from your child’s neck in the event of an impact.
As this seat is suitable from 15 – 36kg, the Kidfix will grow with your child and the adjustable headrest has multiple positions to keep them comfortable at all ages. The seat fabric of the car seat is completely removable so you can keep the seat in tip top condition for years of use!
As expected – We are super impressed with the Britax Kidfix II XP SICT and can confirm it is a fabulous car seat offering excellent safety features and a great overall design, be sure to check it out if you are looking for a new high back booster and let us know what you think!
