Finding the perfect Group 3 forward facing car seat - Introducing The Maxi Cosi Kore pro i-Size

Choosing a car seat that meets the highest of safety standards whilst being affordable and suitable for your child is an absolute minefield.

This is our 4th car seat out of two children, choosing their first infant car seats seemed like such a huge task. Deciding what was good enough to hold our precious newborns. Taylor went from his infant Car Seat into the Maxi Cosi 2Way Pearl, where he was rear-facing up until 2 months ago. At almost 5 years old he finally reached the height limit of the car seat, and I must say after 4 years of daily use it was starting to look tired.

It has however been passed onto his sister for now. Although car seats do have expiration dates stamped on them, so I must check this!

After searching for months to find a car seat I was comfortable with we stumbled upon the Maxi Cosi Kore Pro i-size. Moving Taylor into a forward-facing group 2/3 seat after so long rear-facing seemed like a big deal. Especially as he’d be using the seat belt instead of a 5-point-harness.

Most Group 3 seats I’d seen just didn’t look sturdy or of a high enough quality. Until now.

The Kore Pro i-Size The Kore Pro i-Size completes Maxi-Cosi’s range of i-Size car seats and boasts the following features that helped us in our decision making:

  • Swift and secure isofix installation
  • Superior Side Protection
    The Kore Pro i-Size shell provides full-body side protection by covering your child from lap to head. The car seat is also equipped with the Side Protection System Plus (SPS Plus), which consists of glass fibre shock absorbers in the side wings combined with energy-absorbing material. This complete system provides superior side protection for your child at all time.
  • Grows with your child
    Designed for children between 100 and 150 cm, Kore Pro i-Size expands in both height and width simply by adjusting the headrest. It gives your child more space and the utmost comfort.
  • Click Assist 
    Kore Pro i-Size is equipped with the ClickAssist light, an innovative feature that makes the buckle up area visible in all circumstances. It allows your little ones to fasten their seat belt by themselves up at all times. Kore Pro i-Size also offers the best safety.

Taylor loves his Kore Pro iSize, the bamboo fabrics means he doesn’t get too hot. He’s practising belting himself in with the click assist light guiding the way, although he still needs a little help he’s almost got it! The seat looks comfortable and stylish, thumbs up all round!

I’m a sucker for details so the high-quality look and feel of the seat. The fabric and the finer details such as the click assist light, SIP and easy to adjust headrest were all positives for me. The seat looks great in our car. It doesn’t stand out and is easy to clean.

Thanks, to Maxi-Cosi. Giving parents peace of mind and ensuring the safety of little lives.
