Hello, needing some advice from anyone who has this seat or has tried it in a Mini. I know that the Maxi Cosi Tobi seems a popular choice on these forums but like the idea of utilising the Isofix fitted to my 2005 Cooper.

If anyone can give me some honest advice for the best seat to go for (9 months +) I would be really grateful.

Regards

Sandi

Ps Thank you for your feedback. I went ahead an ordered the Britax Duo Plus Isofix. It is a great sit and the little fella loves it. My husband wants the same seat for his Saab.

Hi
We have a Britax Renaissance seat and it works very well and fits very securely in the back seat. It is not ISO fix though. We tried the Maxi Cosi Tobi at the shop and they would not let us use it in the Mini as it did not fit well enough. We tried about 4 different seats at the time and the Britax was the only one that fitted. We have recently had to wash the covers on it - we did not get to a potty on time! - and it is easy to take apart and wash.

Hope this helps.

I have the Britax Duo Plus Isofix in my R56 and am very pleased with it. I got it as a result of a Which? test. Britax recommended it as suitable for my car although I had to get their recommended foam pad which cost a few ££s extra

The pad is needed due to the shape of the MINI rear bench, but not too expensive when you then get to use a seat which as you say has high recommendations by Which? magazine
