Are there any isofix carseats that swivel?

Hi, I am trying to choose a 9 month+ car seat for my ds. I was interested in the Maxi Cosi Axxiss because I loved the swivel function but then I saw that it only fixes with a seatbelt and doesn't have an isofix option. Does anyone know if there is another car seat out there that swivels round and is isofix? thanks!

think this is the only seat that swivels and from what i've read on here and on reviews for them-apparently they don't sit that well in some cars and are at an angle, not sure how or why though. confused

i have a rf seat for ds and my mindees(one isofix and one not) and it makes getting them in and out easier as the car door is open widest were you are standing iykwim.

have you thought about a rf seat for your ds? www.rearfacing.co.uk

Thank you for this.
I am researching car seats for when ds grows out of his infant carrier, which I understand is when his head is above the head supports in the carrier. .

he is too big when his head is at the top of the car seat or he reaches 13kgs whichever is first.

there are rear facing seats for the next group though now too though, that's the ones i'm talking about?

I had an Axiss and it was brilliant - it saved my back no end - I know that now rear facing is the safest way to go - but honestly if you want forward facing and need convenience this is it - no trying to twist sideways to get an uncooperative child into a car seat!!

On the point on no isofix - it's annoying that there isn't a version with isofix - but on the other hand the seat seat routing on it is very easy and the belt tightener on it REALLY works - I have another car seat which is isofix and to be honest when they are both fitted there is very little if any difference in the movement!

I saw this and wondered if it would be the next best thing compared to a seat that did swivel/rotate? www.kiddicare.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/productdisplayA_822_10751_-1_14574_130436_10001_14568

There is an ERF seat that swivels and is isofix. Its called the Cybex Sirona. Its a new seat so i dont know much about it.

I have the Cybex Sirona which has a rotating isofix base, which is really easy to install and so much easier to remove my child.

It's pricey but well worth it as it can be used rear facing from birth to around 4 years old. - My 4 year old and 5 months old twins, use it.

I'd recommend it. It's a little heavy but it's not like you'll be constantly moving it.

Also Britax Dualfix

Although to be honest with rearfacing seats you just don't need the rotate as its so easy to get them in and out.

I'd pick the Dualfix over the Sirona (in fact I did grin) - it's cheaper, more roomy so will last longer, and it has a harness rather than an impact cushion forward facing. They sell them in some Mothercares, or any of the rf specialists stock them.
