F55 Child Car Seats

Having taken delivery of our Mini Cooper 5 door yesterday this is my first post here. During the order waiting time I have probably read every post on the forum and found it a wonderful resource.

I didn't find much information about suitable child car seats here or elsewhere on the internet so I thought it might be helpful to post details of the car seat we have fitted successfully.

We have fitted a Maxi-Cosi AxissFix child seat which is suitable for children aged 4 months to 4 years. In the UK this seat is sold exclusively by Mothercare. This seat is an i-size seat (this is a new iso standard for isofix seats) that allows forward and rear facing positions and also swivels 90 degrees towards the door to allow easy access for seating the child. The seat was easy to fit using the isofox connectors and has a top tether strap that passes under the headrest into the boot and connects to the top tether point on the rear of the seat.

Hope this helps someone.

Sorry for the slow reply. We don't see our grandson every day so we have only just tried a pushchair. We found a Mothercare Nanu pushchair did not fit because the boot was too narrow. We had to fold the rear seat down to make it fit. It' probably would have fitted if we had taken the parcel shelf out. This type of pushchair is a small portable one that people often buy to take on holiday when travelling by air. I have recently read a Car magazine review of the F55 where the reviewer found the same problem.,default,pd.html
Just a small update to assist any one wanting to buy a buggy that fits in the boot. The key measurement is the boot width which I measure as 96cm. As long as the buggy/pushchair folded dimensions don't exceed this it should fit ok. Notably the Nanu pushchair I referred to earlier in the thread is 105cm long.

We now have a Recaro Easylife stroller which fits ok :)
