The ADVANSAFIX II SICT has been designed to provide a pioneering combination of safety features for older children. From extended 5-point harness protection until 25 kg, to advanced side impact technology and the SecureGuard (patent pending) for optimal lap belt positioning when restraining the child with the 3-point seat belt. Because as children grow, they don’t get any less precious.

The group 1, 2 and 3 (9 months – 12 years | 9 kg – 36 kg) car seat is installed in your car using Isofix connectors and a top tether plus the car’s three point seat belt. For extra peace of mind the indicators will confirm that the Isofix hook is correctly engaged and the Pivot Link system helps to moderate any forward movement. The seat is installed in a forward facing position and is suitable for children weighing 9kg (Approx 9 month). Young children are kept securely in the seat using the 5-point harness with 1-pull adjustment until 25kg and older children are secured in the seat by the car’s seat belt.

The SecureGuard on the Advansafix ensures that the lap section of the car’s seat belt remain in an optimal position. The Britax Advansafix has been designed with deep padded side wings for comfort and protection and a flexible side impact protection system (SICT). The headrest and harness are both easy to adjust using just one hand and ensure that your child is always comfortably supported as they grow. For additional comfort during the journey the seat also features a multi-position recline so your child can sleep in a more comfortable position when on the move.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

 

Our verdict:
Britax is a well established and respected brand when it comes to car seats, so we had high expectations for their new ADVANSAFIX II SICT, luckily we were not dissapointed. This is a fantastic car seat that grows with your child from 9 months all the way through their toddler and childhood, so there is no need to replace it as they get older. It is fairly easy to install and there are even some useful videos and installation guides here on their websites to help you get the seat set up. When you first put your child in the car seat it feels like they are really safe and secure, there is a 5 point harness to keep them strapped in, which can be used until 25k which is approximately 5 years old, and with the top teether which connects to the car behind the headrest and the ISOFIX connectors you definitely feel reassured. It is very comfortable and padded inside the seat so nice and cozy for babies to sleep in and it can be reclined to 3 different positions really easily. As the child grows you simply adjust the headrest and harness to accommodate your child, this is really great and means you don’t need to get your child use to a new car seat. The only downside is that it is forward facing only.
