Rotating car seats – combining safety & convenience

When you choose a rotating car seat you’re opting for the ultimate combination of safety and convenience. Using one means your baby and child travel in the safe rearward-facing position and it’s quick and easy to get them strapped in and ready to go. And you can do it all without leaning over and straining your back.

Why is it important for babies and children to travel rearward-facing?

Children travelling forward-facing can be thrown forwards in a head-on collision. This puts stress on the head and neck, which can lead to serious injury. If your child is travelling rearward-facing, the car seat spreads the forces across the whole back, protecting the delicate head and neck. As 70% of accidents are frontal collisions, it’s safest for children to travel rearward-facing until their muscles and bones have properly developed.

Maxi-Cosi’s history of rotating car seats

Maxi-Cosi has a reputation for finding solutions to help parents every day. From our first groundbreaking rearward-facing car seat launched in 1984, we’ve innovated our range to make every journey easier. In 2007 Axiss was the first rotating car seat, with a 90-degree turn. In 2014, AxissFix brought you 360-degree rotation. Our latest innovations, the Mica and the new Stone i-Size car seat both offer effortless, 360-degree safe travel until your child is four years old.

How are rotatable car seats more convenient for parents?

Both Stone's and Mica’s flexible 360-degree rotation means it has never been easier to get ready to go.

  • One button to select a rearward-facing or forward-facing position.
  • Turn to face you to easily place your child in or they can climb in themselves.
  • See when the straps are fitted correctly for your peace of mind.
  • No matter what position, you can always recline for relaxing journeys.

Our newest 360 car seat Stone also comes with the Easy-in harness system, which stays open to make child installation truly effortless!

Combining convenience with safety and sustainability

Safety is always our number one goal, and impact-absorbing G-Cell technology in both Stone & Mica ensures heightened protection in side-on collisions. We also want you to enjoy using our car seats for longer. A cocooning newborn inlay means you can use both Stone & Mica from your first drive home from the hospital. And as they both fit your child up to four years old, you’ll look forward to many adventures in the car together.
