Here is our review of the Britax ADVANSAFIX III SICT Car Seat.
The ADVANSAFIX III SICT is our new seat for growing children from 9 kg up to 36 kg. The 5-point harness safely secures small children up to 18 kg in the car seat. For larger children, who are secured with the car’s 3-point seat belt, the SecureGuard provides an additional 4th contact point keeping the lap belt at the correct position. The seat also features removable SICT for additional side impact protection. What’s also unique are the multiple recline positions for all ages up to 36 kg. Advanced safety and comfort for your growing child.
What’s in the box?
The box contains the car seat and various instructions, along with some ISOFIX clips and a flexible SICT.
A Closer Look
Fitting the Car Seat
The ADVANSAFIX III SICT comes with some ISOFIX insert guides.
There is also a guard protecting the mechanism you need to remove.
Then it’s just a case of fitting into your car which only takes a few moments.
Britax also provide a number of videos on their website detailing fitting, including this one:
The Britax ADVANSAFIX III SICT is available in a wide variety of colours, including Cosmos Black (the one we are reviewing here), Flame Red, Storm Grey, Ocean Blue, Mineral Purple, Black Marble and Green Marble.
The ADVANSAFIX III SICT car seat is designed for babies and children from 9 months all the way up to 12 years old, so you should get quite a lot of use out of it!
I found fitting the seat into the car very simple and easy – it only took a few moments.
To ensure that the ADVANSAFIX III SICT will work with your car, Britax have a list of cars and their various models so you can easily tell if the seat is compatible. It is worth checking this out before you purchase the seat.
Depending on the age of the child sitting in the seat, you will either be using the integrated 5-point harness or your cars 3-point seat belt. The integrated harness was easy to use and adjust.
Along with seat comes a SICT. This SICT is actually reduces impact forces by minimising the distance between the car and the car seat and deforms to absorb the energy before it reaches your child. All you do is fit it between the seat and the door – very simple and adds yet more piece of mind.
There is also a V-Tether which attaches to the seat in order to provide even greater protection.
The seat can also recline into three different positions ensuring a more comfortable journey.
I can highly recommend the ADVANSAFIX III SICT if you want a high quality, safe and secure car seat that is very easy to fit and is one that you can get around 11 years of use out of – how’s that for value for money!
The Britax ADVANSAFIX III SICT car seat is available now for around £250, but as usual look around for the best deal.
