SOLUTION Z-FIX CAR SEAT
The big brother
Your child grows a great deal between the ages of 3 and 12 but the Solution Z-Fix is optimized to grow alongside them and adapts to your child's changing needs.
- Patented reclining headrest
- Automatic height and width adjustment (12 positions)
- Optimised Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System Plus)
- Air ventilation system
- ISOFIX Connect System
- CYBEX Safety Pads
Equipped with 12 height settings and automatic width adjustment, the head and shoulder protectors can be adjusted to meet each child’s individual space requirements. Its ability to be operated with just one hand makes it quick and easy for parents to adjust. The patented, reclining headrest’s design ensures that the child's head remains in the safety zone. This is especially important in the event of a side-impact collision, where the headrest and the L.S.P. System Plus offer your child greater protection. In combination with the energy-absorbing shell, forces from a side-impact collision are reduced by approximately 25% and the child's head is actively guided into a safe position thanks to the CYBEX Safety Pads. The Solution Z-Fix is equipped with ISOFIX Connect for easy installation and extra stability and safety. Ensuring your child’s comfort even when driving on hot days, the seat’s air ventilation system cools down the seat to a comfortable temperature. The car seat's reclining backrest perfectly adjusts to the angle of the back seat, making the Solution Z-Fix the perfect choice for your child with safety and comfort in mind.
The reclining headrest is a patented technology which prevents the child's head from tipping forward while sleeping. It ensures that the child's head remains in the safety zone at all times.
An indispensable element of the Solution car seat series safety concept is the patented, 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
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.
The Solution Z-Fix grows with your child from 3 to 12 years. Offering 12 positions, the head and shoulder protectors can be adjusted in height with automatic width adjustment to meet the individual space requirements of the child. The smart one-hand operation makes it quick and easy for the parent to adjust.
Optimised Linear Side-impact Protection
L.S.P. System Plus
The optimised Linear Side-impact Protection System absorbs the impact energy at a very early stage.
The L.S.P. System Plus of the Solution Z-Fix offers increased safety in the event of a side-impact collision. It reduces the force of a side-impact in combination with the energy absorbing shell by approximately 25%.
Air ventilation system
For an optimal seating climate
The integrated air ventilation system of the Solution Z-Fix provides a comfortable seat temperature for your child even on hot days.
A further building block in the comfort package of the Solution Z-Fix is a mesh of ventilation channels that run through the backrest and seat components. Air can circulate through ventilation holes under the seat cover and is channelled away from the child by additional openings in the backrest. This provides a comfortable seat temperature even on hot days.
More safety and stability
The Solution Z-Fix is equipped with ISOFIX Connect for easy installation and extra stability.
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.
High-quality fabrics in a modern design with contemporary colours
The Solution Z-Fix combines two fabrics in a unique way.
One fabric is extremely soft and cosy, especially on the inside of the seat. Hard-wearing two-tone twill-effect fabric is used around the shell. This combination ensures that your little one has a comfortable journey. At the same time, it perfectly blends into the interior of a modern car.

Is this the right seat for my car?
We extensively test the suitability for all our products in all the latest vehicle models. Should your vehicle not appear please contact our customer service team for further assistance. We always recommend that you do a test installation at a qualified retailer to confirm individual compatibility. You should especially check that your vehicle model has ISOFIX anchorage points (US: LATCH ) and the length of the vehicle seat belt as this may vary, even during the same production year of manufacture.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- How do I install the cup holder?
On either side of the booster seat there is a little gap underneath the seat cover. The cup holder should be inserted in there from above until it is connected to the seat.
- 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, a passive safety feature of the CYBEX Group 1/2/3 car seats and the Group 2/3 seats for older children, is one of the central CYBEX safety technologies. 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: If 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 normal that the seat’s backrest is not completely locked and has a bit of room to wiggle when the seat is not installed in the car?
The reclining backrest is part of the CYBEX safety concept. Thanks to the automatic adjustment mechanism, it adapts perfectly to any car seat. In the worst-case scenario, the backrest moves slightly forward with your child, and is thereby able to ‘catch’ the body at an earlier stage. The seat and backrest are connected to each other, but are not rigid and don’t lock into place.
- Can I use this seat on a flight?
No, this seat is not approved for use on an airplane.
- Can child seats equipped with ISOFIX Connect System also be used in cars that do not have the connectors?
CYBEX car seats that are designed with the ISOFIX Connect System can also be used in cars that are not equipped with ISOFIX. Simply rotate the ISOFIX connectors 180° and then push the connectors in, as far as possible, into the booster seat.
- Can I attach Isofix to a child car seat which does not have the Isofix connectors?
Car seat models without ISOFIX (ISOFIX Connect System) cannot be retrofitted into seats with ISOFIX. Please do not adapt or tamper with car seat models to make them fit, as the authorities do not allow any technical changes to them.
- Is it ok to keep using a seat after an accident?
We at CYBEX strongly recommend that you replace a seat after any kind of accident. This is because tiny hairline cracks, which may not be visible to the naked eye, can appear in the plastic parts of a seat after an accident. These cracks can pose an increased risk to safety.
- My car seat is faulty, how can I get it repaired?
Please refer to the retailer where you bought your CYBEX seat. They will deal with the matter on your behalf.
- Where can I get replacement parts for my product?
You can order replacement parts from a specialist retailer near you. To find a store near you, simply go to the store locator on our website: http://cybex-online.com/de/retailer.html
