The Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat offers European style while providing the ultimate in comfortable transportation. Includes EPP foam for energy absorption, plush cozi dozi infant insert and stay-in-car adjustable base. The Mico infant car seat is compatible with the Quinny Buzz and the Quinny Zapp strollers.
Overall this carseat is great! This being our 3rd child, we have bought several carseats from different manufacturers and we have been pleasantly surprised with Maxi-Cosi. We were given the stroller and a carseat from a friend; however, the carseat was entirely too old as it only had a 3 point harness, but we loved the ergonomic stroller, so we opted to find a reasonably priced carseat that fit instead of getting a whole new system. When this arrived (speedily) we were impressed by the style, color and durability. It's quite cushy for our little one!
Its quite heavy without the baby.
I do wish the canopy extended a bit further forward so the sun actually stayed off the baby's face.
The base is also quite heavy, but I believe it's part of its durability.

Strap is too short for my 5 months old son.

It was perfect for my daughter 2 years ago, since she is petite. I used it on my son, and he is 16 pounds @ 23 weeks, and the straps are way too short for him. It bothers him a lot when we try to buckle him up, since it's not easy to buckle in the first place. It is great for its price, but I am ready to put my son in his britax since his is very uncomfortable!
Canopy too small
Straps too short
This is my second Mico

I just ordered this Mico for our upcoming baby girl due in September. We bought the phantom color Mico about 4 years ago for my eldest son, it was passed on to my second son as well. We absolutely LOVE this infant car seat. My sons were comfortable in it and I felt like they were safe and secure. I have very small babies, so they were able to fit (safely) in the car seat well into their 9-12th months. The base is super easy to put in the car (unlike the otehr car seats with the medieval latches), and the car seat is easy to put in and out of the car. I also love how it fits in my Quinny Buzz perfectly. Now, with a girl on the way, we decided to go with the more girly design, and we will be using it with our old Quinny Buzz as well as with our Baby Jogger City Select. We are so excited, and can only say good things about this product!
it is very stylish but too small for my 4 month old baby

It has nice color and pattern, it is lightweight also. I think this car seat has the easiest car seat adaptor for car. It is very easy to put in the car. First two months it was very comfortable for my baby. The reason I prefer Maxi Cosi brand is for my Quinny stroller. I used this car seat with my Quinny Zapp Xtra stroller. Sometimes it is getting hard for me to attach and remove the car seat from stroller adaptor. .But my main concern is size. I used this car seat with head support for 2 months. I removed the head support on third month because my baby couldn't fit. I will probably need to buy bigger one before her 5 months birthday. The belts also come from very low from my babies back eventhough I use the highest adjustment. My baby is an average baby in her size. If I knew she is not going to fit in tihis car seat I will probably look for the bigger ones. By the way its canopy doesnt protect the baby from sun bacause of the size of canopy. They should make a canopy like quinny strollers canopies.
easy to put in the car adaptor
small for average baby
belts start from very low place
canopy is not enough for rear facing when using with stroller
Nice car seat for a girl!

I ordered this seat along with the Mico in Ocean Reflection for my newborn twins, and absolutely love them. My babies are so comfy in them, and most importantly the seats are very secure and well constructed. Also, They are just beautiful. I get compliments on these seats all the time, especially the Happy Flowers pattern as it is so colorful and fun.
Love this car seat!!

I shoped around and looked at every possible review you can look at and decided on the Maxi Cosi car seat.. No regrets, its light weight goes in and out of the car easily and my little girl sleeps in this seat for hours.
