Have you received this by any chance yet? I visited the NEXA showroom near here and they did not have this in stock and they don't know much about it as you had mentioned. I guess this accessory does not sell much and they don't get a lot of enquiries regarding it.

No. I have to wait for about 15 days as they only have Pink/Black one in stock. No Blue/Black in stock.

Can Non-Maruti car owner also order from them? Was looking for isofix type seats which are available in India but not able find any except chicco nextfit which is quite costly. Amazon is selling non-fulfilled ones though (was not willing to take risk with other sellers who get the seat imported.).

I don't think there is any restriction on who can buy. If they ask just say you are planning to buy an Ignis or Baleno.

Yea the seats are quite expensive. However not as expensive as the BMW child seats. I was told they cost 75 K.

Any problem with that? Usually even if not Amazon fulfilled the product should be good if from a reputed manufacturer.

No such restrictions. Anyone can walk into their showroom and get one. I purchased one child seat for a friend last year and the order was placed from an MGP store.

There are two types. One is smaller and retails for Rs. 2990. Other is priced at Rs. 5990.

I enquired with Nexa but they did not have one in stock. And the price from their accessory person seems different from what is quoted above. He told on phone that there are two models. One for 8k and one for 12k. He asked me to come on Monday and do the booking. Only after that the delivery date can be found.

In the meantime while looking at Amazon I found this https://www.amazon.in/gp/aw/d/B079N858H9

The description does't mention isofix. But from photo given one can see isofix rods jn the back. And also there is a mention of isofix on the side. I have ordered one to verify the reality. Will keep it if it indeed turns out to be isofix model and if quality is acceptable.

Do they have ISOFIX booster seats as well?

My son is 5 years old, 30kg and 3 feet 10 inches tall.

He has outgrown his previous seat and is uncomfortable when belted down.

I have not seen any booster seat in the catalogue.

You are mistaken sir. The NEXA representative is taking you for a ride. Initially the price was 8k and 12k. After June 2014, Maruti has issued a circular and now the price is 3k and 6k. I know many cases where people have sold 6k ones for 12k since not everyone is aware of the circular.

Hii folks please suggest car seats for twin boys and their placement in an XUV. My boys are 2.5 years old and about 12 kgs each. Any useful information from parents of twins of how they mange would be really welcome!
FYI we have been using a single car seat with the twins sitting in turns but they have outgrown it and need to have new ones for replacement.

Does this seat have ECER rating or equivalent. Make sure any seat you buy has these norms fulfilled. Though it does look nice and comfortable. And Yes, ISOFIX is the way to go. Strap down by the belt, feels flimsy to me. I always inspect the seat belt for wear/tear and correct connect to the lock: before placing the child in.

I am yet to receive the product. Will check about the certification once I receive it. The quality looked good from the pictures. Let's see how it turns out in reality.

Please do inspect, and lookout for the certifications. A car seat is really important to prevent whiplash to infants [specially when braking], since their neck muscles are almost non-existent.

Smile Re: "Child Seat" for Babies & Kids

One of my close friend is recently blessed with a baby girl and I am planning to gift a child seat for her 21st day ceremony. Friend uses a Tiago XZ for daily commutes. I checked online and found it does not have Isofix mounts. Have two queries:

1: Does Tiago XZ not come with isofix mounts(Existing tiago owners please help). I went through the official review but was not able to locate any mentions.
2: How good are child seats without isofix mounts? Will they be able to handle daily in town commutes which involves mild braking.
3: Found LuvLap child seats on amazon for group 0 and 1 with decent reviews. The description shows it as certified per European Standard. Below is the link. Any member has used this one?

http://amzn.in/1d6ChnL

With the ceremony coming up fast, will appreciate some quick help
