The Maxi Cosi Mico Plus is the replacement capsule for the Maxi Cosi Mico Ap, with an updated iosfix system
At first glace the Mico “+” capsule looks identical to the Maxi Cosi Mico AP; utilising the same base and appears to be the same capsule in design.
A closer look reveals that the isofix connections have been re-designed, so that the tension indicator for the Mico Plus capsule is on the base, and not on the buckle. This repositioning mean it is easier to see when you have a solid green tension indicator.
On the Maxi Cosi Mico Ap, it was never possible to get a secure installation due to a number of design issues. On the Mico Plus capsule; the isofix buckle has been redesigned so that it is smaller and allows correct tensioning of the isofix system.
Due to the redesign of the Isofix system on the Mico Plus; it is recommended to only use isofix as the installation method. When your car does not have isofix points; it is recommended to hire the maxi cosi mico Limited Edition or the Maxi Cosi Mico Plus Non isofix as the installation is done by a accredited and professional ACRI baby car seat installer.
The next change that is noticed is the change of fabric. The change is from devoted black to a easy to clean fabric which has incorporated wicking. The introduction of wicking keeps your baby cooler as it draws moisture away from your baby’s skin, keeping baby cool and comfortable.
The sun canopy on the Maxi Cosi Mico Plus as well as the Maxi Cosi Mico AP limited edition is now extended. This means that it will cover most of the capsule protecting your child with spf 50+ fabric. The extended canopy keeps the sun off your child in the summer; and shields your child from the cold in winter.
The inclusion of ventilation on the sides and back of the canopy provides plenty of fresh air for your child; whilst protecting your child from the sun and cold. The addition of magnetic holders at the front of the capsule keep the extended canopy firmly in position
Lastly the Mico Plus capsule includes innovative Magnetic harness holders and Easy Out harness pads to always ensure that your harness straps are out of the way when placing baby in and out of the baby capsule..
