AS YOU’D expect of a seat from the company behind Bin the Booster, the Kidfix appears to be big on safety, with oversized headrest supports and Isofix connections. It uses side-impact cushion technology (SICT) with cushions that move outwards to provide protection in the event of a crash. You need only activate the cushion that is nearest the door when installing the seat.

There is also the “XP-PAD”, through which the seatbelt is fed and which is claimed to absorb energy in a frontal impact.

The downside of all this is the weight — it’s heavy and quite a bulky unit. Arty found it relatively comfortable but not the most padded or plush here, and Clara wasn’t impressed by how visible the hard plastics were.
