Grows with you, you and you
ADVANSAFIX IV R was developed so that children from 9 to 36 kg can travel safely and comfortably – ideal for every family. Thanks to the FLIP&GROW function, you can switch from the integrated 5-point harness to the 3-point seat belt as your child grows, with just a few simple steps. In addition, ADVANSAFIX IV R provides maximum flexibility and protection for all ages thanks to its advanced safety features.
Exceptionally safe – every day
The safety of every child is very important to us. Which is why ADVANSAFIX IV R offers advanced safety features to keep your child protected at every age. When you secure your child with the car’s 3-point belt, the SecureGuard holds the lap belt in the optimal position over the pelvic bones, reducing the risk of abdominal injuries. Plus, the adjustable SICT and V-shaped headrest provide protection in the event of a side impact.
Extra comfort – for every family
With ADVANSAFIX IV R, growing up becomes even more fun! Thanks to the FLIP&GROW function, you can switch from the integrated harness to the car’s 3-point seat belt once your child reaches 15 kg and up to a maximum of 18 kg – it’s child’s play! There’s nothing to remove from the seat, so nothing can get lost, and it can be converted back at any time. The extra soft padding and EasyRecline with three adjustable recline positions, for toddler and child, ensure that they will be comfortable on every journey.
Quality – Made in Germany
We believe that product development and production should be as close as possible. That’s why our ADVANSAFIX IV R has been completely developed, designed and manufactured in Germany. And it has only been approved after numerous tests in our modern in-house crash test facility. That’s how we can guarantee the best possible quality for our customers. And this applies not only to the seat components but also to the covers and fabrics, all of which are manufactured in Europe. All this to ensure that your and our children are always safe on the road.
The Britax Römer Pivot Link ISOFIX System
In case of an impact, our patented Pivot Link ISOFIX System directs the force first downward (1), into the vehicle seat, and then forward (2), more gently – greatly reducing the risk of head and neck injury for your child.
We believe a 5-point harness is the safest way to secure your child in a car seat because it keeps your child safe and tight in the seat’s protective shell. In the event of a collision, the harness distributes the forces of the impact across 5 points, two at the shoulders, two at the hips and one where the harness buckles between the legs. This helps to protect your child from all directions of impact.
Soft neoprene performance chest pads
Our new, soft neoprene performance chest pads fit comfortably on your child’s chest. They help reduce your child’s movement in the event of a collision, and add even greater comfort to the 5-point harness. Plus, they can be easily removed for washing without disturbing the harness.
The SecureGuard helps to protect your child’s delicate abdominal area by adding an extra – a 4th – contact point to the 3-point seat belt. By keeping the lap belt in an optimal position over your child’s pelvic bones SecureGuard helps reduce abdominal forces in the event of a frontal collision by up to 35 %*, and at the same time allows your child freedom of movement during the journey.

Advanced Side Impact Protection – SICT
Our SICT offers superior protection to your child in the event of a side collision. It reduces impact forces by minimising the distance between the car and the car seat and deforms to absorb the energy before it reaches your little one. To benefit from the protection, simply adjust the SICT on the side of the car seat closest to the door.
Highback booster protection
Our highback boosters protect your child in 3 ways: the seat shell provides head to hip protection for your child, especially in the event of a side impact; the upper and lower belt guides provide correct positioning of the seat belt; and the padded headrest provides safety and comfort for your child’s head and neck.
Specially designed to control the movement of your child’s head, our V-shaped headrest ensures optimal protection in the event of a side collision while providing ultimate comfort at the same time. Plus, the headrest and harness can easily be adjusted from the front of the seat to suit your child’s height.
Our v-shaped Top Tether prevents the seat from rotating and reduces the forward movement of the child in the event of a collision. Due to its twin anchorage points, it offers even greater stability and security for your child than a seat with conventional tethers.
Things can get pretty messy on the road. Drinks can spill and children can get car sick. That’s why we designed a machine washable seat cover that can easily be taken off without removing the harness, so you can clean up quick and get on your way.
When your child reaches 15 kg and up to a maximum of 18 kg, you must change from the integrated 5-point harness to the car’s 3-point seat belt to secure your child in the seat. Thanks to the FLIP&GROW function, that’s now possible in a few simple steps. Simply adjust the headrest and stow the harness in the backrest so it won’t get lost. Then, switch the FLIP&GROW adjustment plate so the SecureGuard is above the seat and you’re ready to go.
EasyRecline is suitable for all ages and allows you to adjust the seat into three comfortable positions. Even with your child in the seat and without having to readjust the Top Tether — totally convenient for both child and parents.
