With i-Size, the child seat fulfils the stringent safety standards in accordance with UN R129. These high requirements on side impact protection are not only met, they are exceeded. Parents benefit from simple and secure installation thanks to ISOFIX connectors. The child seat is compatible with all vehicle seats bearing the i-Size logo and virtually all other seating with ISOFIX connectors. Children travel safely and parents enjoy complete flexibility.

Sound System

Integrated loudspeaker in the head area of the child seat and an audio connection enable little travellers to enjoy the finest in entertainment, without mum and dad having to listen to the child‘s radio play or favourite song in the front of the vehicle. In this way, the kids can lean back and relax and their heads remain protected by the headrest.

Air ventilation system

Fresh air keeps everyone happy. This is ensured by openings in the outer shell and mesh inserts in the seat cover, which allow for continuous air circulation. A greater level of comfort and well-being is impossible. Whether they are on a quick journey to see granny or with the whole family on holiday for the summer – this way the little explorers are kept in the best mood. Regardless of how long the journey is.

Advanced Side
Protection (ASP)

The detachable protectors can be affixed quickly and simply to the child seat. In the event of a side collision, the energy absorbers reduce the force that would act upon the child. As such, they offer maximum protection. To this end, we recommend always installing the protectors on the door side to offer the best possible protection. In any car.

Height-adjustable headrest

As they are still growing, an ergonomic posture is essential for children. The height-adjustable backrest with integrated headrest allows for maximum seating comfort, supports healthy posture and, thanks to the optimised harness guide, increases safety on every journey.

Smart Protection Wings

Padded wings at shoulder height automatically adjust to the height of the child and ensure that the little adventurers are kept even safer and more comfortable in the child seat. And the best thing: the Smart Protection Wings grow with the child thanks to the adjustable backrest – up to 12 years or a height of 150 cm.

Is the Mako Elite 2 compatible with my vehicle?

Please always check your car’s manual for possible notes/instructions/prohibitions from the manufacturer regarding the use of child seats in your car!

Sorry, this seat is not approved for your vehicle.

Reasons for denied approval can be:

  • Limited space for the child seat
  • 3-point-belt is too short
  • If it should occur that once the child seat is attached to the ISOFIX connection, and the seat covers the buckle there is no guarantee of a safe installation
  • Headrest of the car is not removable and prevents the child seat from being placed correctly
  • Storage compartment in the foot area does not allow installation of child seat or base with a supporting leg
