Love the maxi cosi capsule
I love this capsule, it’s so convenient with a newborn. I used it with my bugaboo buffalo purchasing the adapters from baby bunting, it meant I didn’t have to disturb my baby getting her in and out of the car for short trips to the shops etc. Fits well in my car and isofox was a bonus.
Easy to use
Great capsule, not too heavy and easy to take out of car. We are very happy with our purchase and would recommend it to other parents. The only thing that concerns us is that when our baby falls asleep, his head often falls forward in the seat which isn’t great for oxygen flow but I think this is the case for all capsules not just the maxi cosi.
I bought this a month ago. Its major advantages are that it can be put in a pram (however the pram requires adapters if its not a maxi cosi branded pram) and then when in the car it can be clicked in to the car seat base. Overall i think its very useful and handy to have.
Baby doesn't wake up in this!
Been using this for 10 months now. Also Bought the adapter for our baby jogger pram.
Overall good but could be better designed as described below:
Cons: putting the capsule onto the pram adapters is quite tricky often you will miss.
Pulling the strap that is secured over the top is quite hard to secure and unsecure.
Pros: younger babies don't wake up so easily but after 8 months our boy gets woken up easy when transfering him from arm to seat. Lucky for us our baby still barely fits in the capsule at 8 months. Great to use if we go out at night.
**Capsule can be a rocker too!
Good car seat for our young twins
Maxi cosi car seats ate not very heavy to carry, but because we have a twin we need to carry two of them, then it’s a bit hard to carry. So we also bought a adapter for bugaboo donkey duo pram, it turns out to be quite well when we use them, although they make the pram become harder to go through a standard door.
They are easy to install in a car and easy to remove.
Our twins seem to love sleeping on the car seats so we love them so much

Great for bub!
Easy to use capsule. I blindly trusted the reviews for it and i wasn't disappointed. Bub sleeps through the smallest car journeys. even handles 40 deg days (with air con of course) nicely. The adaptors are a bit fiddly for the pram but manageable. embarking and disembarking from the car is usually a matter of a few minutes. Cant recommend this highly enough!
- Mico AP Isofix
Very easy to carry, compatible with pram (redsbaby pram with special attachment) and car (2016 subaru with ISOfix option), very easy to install with video instructions online, however our capsule was professionally installed, and can carry sleeping baby straight from car to house so much easier. Baby sleeps comfortably and nicely in it.

Good but has some negatives
Easy to install and our premature baby fits securely. It is easy to carry although quite heavy even with a small baby. The strap to secure it to the car (over the top of the capsule) is quite hard to connect and I also fear that if I accidentally let go, the metal buckle will hit my child.
Good product but quite heavy
This is a great capsule in terms of build quality and performance. Downside is it's quite heavy and only just fits in my car (mazda cx5).
Before buying one ensure the backseat of your car has enough room behind the drivers seat - probably better to buy a smaller capsule if you have a small or medium size car.
Great car seat
Bought this to go with my pram for easy when baby is asleep and to much to fiddle with getting her in and out. Negatives are it is actually a bit fiddly putting her in and out because of the handle and the anchor point belt - we bought the isofix base because we thought it didn't need the extra belt over the seat but alas, so we have several times had to wriggle her in and out, however once she is in she is nice and secure and the seat was easy to install and feels very safe. Also doesn't weigh too much! Probably a little on the smaller size, but my baby is six months and still using it so not too bad!
Fantastic capsule, so easy to use & clips straight into my pram. The installation is pretty simple, we have both isofix and standard models. Standard model required a bit of a strong push but it's great to keep the baby sleeping whilst you're moving from home to car to pram.
Great choice with #2
Decided to get a capsule for ease with baby number 2 and it was a great decision. So easy to unclick the capsule from the car when we out at the toddler’s activities. The capsule itself is easy to use and buckle up. Having the tether strap is annoying and can weigh down the hood.
The biggest negative is that we paid the extra for the isofix model however when it was installed at baby bunting (where we purchased it) they said there is some problem with the base and fittings that means it is less secure if attached with the isofix points so they don’t do it that way. Apparently the baby bunting staff know this and should have told us so we didn’t spend extra money for no reason.
Makes life so much easier
This capsule has been so useful for me. I can get the baby comfortable in the house and carry him straight to the car. If we get somewhere and he's asleep I just leave him in his seat and attach him to the bugaboo pram or if I'm just running into the shops. It's great for when I get home as I just take the capsule straight inside. I had the capsule professionally installed at Baby bunting. I will say it is a little heavy once the baby is in to carry it for a distance. I don't like how loud the the handle clicks into place as it wakes the baby. The quality is great.
Easy to use and looks great
Absolutely love the fabric and the cute head support. Baby sleeps nicely in it. Capsule was professionally fitted. Yes, I know it's Isofix, but it's always better to be fitted properly. The capsule fits easily on the base and simple to connect the teether strap. Also, quick to put into my pram. Canopy can be improved. The pocket for the teether strap is also quite hidden.
Couldn’t have survived without
These capsules are a god send. I had twins and couldn’t have survived without them. They made getting in and out of the car so much easier. My babies were always so comfy in them they’d fall asleep so well and then the capsule would perfectly fit on my bugaboo pram. They are also safe and I would highly recommend to any new parent.
Questions & Answers
I am looking at a second hand maxi cosi mcm 2010 and Id like to know if its compatible with the baby jogger city tour lux pram. I’m having some issues finding information on which maxi cosi models will fit and which won’t
Looks like you can do Maxi Cosi or Nuna with these adapters: https://www.babykingdom.com.au/baby-jogger-city-tour-lux-adapter-for-maxi-cosi-and-nuna.html
I have just purchased a Maxi Cosi Mico Ap capsule and have had it professionally installed in my car. I have a Mazda 6 and finding that the tether strap to loosen & tighten sits under/behind the head rest and I need to open my boot everything time I’m wanting to get it in and out the car.. is there a way of shortening the strap that is attached to the actual capsule?? Thanks

What reviewers thought
They found the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP capsule to be easy to use and comfortable for their children since they could transport them without waking them. It was easy to click in and out of the car, attach to a compatible pram and to keep clean. Sometimes, the fabric does not cool sufficiently on hot days, making them uncomfortable for babies.
