Solution Q-fix car seat
The safest Solution of all times
The innovative Solution Q-fix combines the many years of experience of a successful Group 2/3 car seat family with the latest findings from material and safety research and the iconic design of the CYBEX PLATINUM product line.
The interaction of the patented, reclining headrest that prevents the dangerous tipping forward of the head during sleep, and an optimised Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System Plus) ensures the highest level of safety and comfort. A new automatic height and width adjustment allows for a flexible and optimal alignment of the car seat to the child's size. A new air ventilation system guarantees a comfortable seating temperature even on hot days.
Patented head protection
Optimised reclining headrest
The optimised reclining headrest prevents the child's head from falling forward while asleep. The head is actively guided into a safe position.
An indispensable element of the Solution car seat series safety concept is the 3-position reclining headrest. Thanks to this adjustability, the child's head is tilted back which prevents the dangerous tipping forward during sleep. The child's sensitive head and neck area is protected in a side-impact collision, as it remains in the car seat's safety zone created out of head and side protectors. Besides improving passive safety, the patented headrest also ensures a comfortable sleeping position.
Automatic height and width adjustment
The car seat grows with the child
Most children reach 55% of their total height by the age of 3 and by the age of 12 have completed 89% of their growth. This results in an average growth rate of 60 cm during the period in which the car seat is used.
In order to provide the best possible protection and comfort for the entire duration of use, the CYBEX Solution Q-fix car seat features an integrated height and width adjustment - a new safety function for flexible and optimal alignment of the seat to the child's size. With a one-handed mechanism and 11 adjustment possibilities, the height and width of the seat can be adjusted simultaneously. The seat can grow up to 8 cm in width and up to 20 cm in height. The child thereby always remains in the optimal protection zone of the head and shoulder protectors and never feels constricted, even towards the end of the usage period.
Air ventilation system
For an optimal seating climate
The air ventilation system provides a comfortable seating temperature even on hot days.
A further building block in the comfort package of the Solution Q-fix is a mesh of ventilation channels that run through the backrest and seat components. Air can circulate through ventilation holes on the front of the seat and under the seat cover, and is channelled away from the child by additional openings in the backrest. This ensures a comfortable sitting temperature even on hot days.
L.S.P. System Plus
Optimised Linear Side-impact Protection
The optimised Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System Plus) absorbs impact energy at a very early stage.
The new width adjustment works hand in hand with the L.S.P. System Plus - an optimised Linear Side-impact Protection. The force of a side-impact collision is thereby systematically reduced by the additional safety cushions as well as the shoulder and head protectors. At the same time the body's kinetic energy resulting from an accident is absorbed at a very early stage and the head is actively directed into a secure position.
Colours and Fabrics
Safety, Design and Functionality
Continuing the CYBEX tradition of having fashionable colours, the PLATINUM car seats come in a great range of colours in two fabric variations.
Comfort version: the soft and cozy comfort version of the Platinum car seats features 10 colour combinations.
Plus version: the Plus version gets its characteristic appearance through an exclusive, very hard-wearing fabric with a twill effect in a denim look. These child car seats are available in 5 different colours.
more safety and stability
ISOFIX Connect System offers enhanced safety and stability and easy one-click installation.
The seat's connectors simply snap into the vehicle's ISOFIX anchorage points. The connectors can easily be folded away, so that the seat is also compatible with cars not equipped with ISOFIX.

Is this the right seat for my car?
The installation of our products is extensively tested in the latest vehicles. However, we always recommend a test installation at a qualified retailer to confirm individual compatibility. Especially the length of the vehicle belts or ISOFIX (US: LATCH) anchorage points may vary, even during a production run of a car manufacturer.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- What does L.S.P. system stand for?
The abbreviation L.S.P. stands for Linear.Side-Impact.Protection. The L.S.P. system is responsible for the shoulder and head protectors systematically absorbing the forces of a side impact in a linear chain reaction. The kinetic body energy triggered in an accident is absorbed and the head and upper body moved in a safe position. Especially the sensitive head and shoulder area is protectively locked inside the safety zone of the seat. The L.S.P. System Plus features additional side protectors.
- Do child seats equipped with a backrest perform better than booster seats?
The main problem with booster seats is the missing side protection. A child seat with a backrest has side protectors that prevent the child from hitting the window in the case of a side impact collision. Additionally, the routing of the seat belt can not be adjusted to the height of the child causing possible health hazards. Therefore, compared to seats with a backrest, booster seats do pose a higher risk of injury.
- Which is the normal position for the reclining headrest?
The patented reclining headrest of the Solution series marks a special safety feature of the CYBEX child seat collection. In its reclined position it prevents the head from falling forward when the child is asleep keeping head and upper body within the safety zone during the ride. Adjusting the headrest to the front position when the child is awake it keeps the head in an upright position.
- Can I use the child seat on rearward facing car seats like those found in vans or minibuses?
You can use this child seat on rearward facing car seats as long as the vehicle seat has a homologation for use by adults and a 3 point belt. The headrest of the vehicle seat should not be removed when the child seat is mounted.
- Can I use the child seat on lateral facing car seats?
It is not permissible to use the child seat on lateral facing car seats.
- Is it ok to install the seat on the passenger seat?
CYBEX Group 2/3 seats can be used in all seats of the car with a three point emergency locking retractor belt. However, we recommend generally using the seat in the back of the car. Statistically, the front seat poses a higher risk of injury for your child. In exceptions, however, the seat can be used in the passenger seat as well. Please note the following: Iif the car has an airbag, put the seat as far back as possible. However, you should pay attention that the upper part of the seat belt stays behind the running of the belt.
- What can I do if my child´s head drops forward while sleeping in spite of the reclining headrest?
If the child safety seat is attached to the car seat in too upright a position, causing your child to be seated vertically, some children´s heads may fall to the side in their sleep. Should this occur, the seat should be pulled forward slightly. If your seat is designed with the ISOFIX Connect System, simply release the connectors by one or, at most, two settings. It is also possible to use a children´s neck cushion, which stops the child from slumping while asleep. This prevents the child´s head from leaving the protection zone.
- When I fasten my child´s safety belt, the belt no longer automatically retracts. What can I do?
The wide range of vehicle seats means that, in some cases, the safety belt may not run smoothly to the child safety seat. If this is the case, first check whether the height of the safety belt can be adjusted in the car. If possible, adjust the height of the belt so that it runs straight and smoothly through the child safety seat´s belt positioner. Alternatively, the problem may be alleviated if the vehicle seat can be adjusted horizontally, vertically and/or at an angle.
- Is it ok to keep using a seat after an accident?
In an accident the plastic parts of the baby seat may sustain damages that are invisible to the eye yet extremely dangerous. Therefore, CYBEX always strongly advises to exchange the car seat if it has been involved in any type of accident.
- Can I use this child seat on an airplane?
No, this seat is not approved for use on an airplane.
