Maxi-Cosi Pearl Car Seat, Total Black

Product information

The Maxi-Cosi Pearl car seat features a stylish black fabric finish with grey trim. But look beyond its modern looks and you'll discover a collection of impressive and vital safety features.

This Group 1 car seat is suitable for babies from 9-18kg (approximately 9 months to 4 years), and must be fitted in the car with the FamilyFix Isofix base (sold separately) as there is no seatbelt option.

It features optimum side impact protection, 5 comfortable recline positions from sitting to sleeping, which are easily adjustable from the front of the seat, adjustable harness and head support which can be moved in harmony with each other, and an innovative stay-open harness that lets you place and secure your child quickly and easily. The headrest and harness belts are also easily adjustable to accommodate a growing child.

Please note: the Isofix base shown in the image is sold separately.

All our car seats and infant carriers comply with current European regulation ECE R44.04.


  • Under no circumstances should a car seat be used on a passenger seat where there is an airbag.
  • Correct fitting of all car seats and boosters is of paramount importance to make them most effective in the event of an accident. Not all car seats fit all cars and it is important to check for fitting suitability on all cars you intend fitting the seat to, as well as re-checking if you change your car.
  • Always read the instruction booklet which comes with your car seat to achieve a safe and correct fitting, retaining the guide for future reference. We recommend fitting your car seat in advance of first using it.
  • We recommend that babies shouldn`t be left in Group 0/0+ car seats (infant carriers) for prolonged periods.



  • Please make sure that you check the car seat you choose is suitable for your car before ordering.
  • Some of our shops offer a car seat fit test, where a Nursery advisor will test the display model in your car to check that it will fit properly. Please contact your local shop to see if this service is available. Alternatively, please contact the car seat manufacturer who will be able to advise whether their model will be suitable for your car.

Q & As

Maxi-Cosi Pearl Car Seat, Total Black 4.9 5 13 13
Excellent Car Seat We brought this car seat as we already had the Maxi-Cosi FamilyFix base. The seat was easy to fit to the base and baby sits nicely in the seat. The belts are easy to clip in too. Overall excellent car seat, definitely recommend. 12 December 2014
Excellent car seat Fits the family fix base. Baby sits nice and high. Only downside is padding on straps does not come off to be washed. 16 September 2014
Great follow on from Pebble Perfect follow on from Pebble, easy to fit (had family fix base) and great fit for my just 9kg little one, who is much happier to be facing forward. Good value for money 09 September 2014
Comfy looking car seat Yet to use, but was a good price attaches to family fix base and looks comfy. 06 May 2014
Great seat! Moved to the Pearl from the Pebble, as they fit the same isofix base. Slightly irritating that this cannot be used with a seatbelt, it is isofix only, but a great seat nonetheless. Lots of room, my daughter looks comfortable, plus the reclining option is brilliant. If she falls asleep on a journey I can recline it with her in it, meaning no head lolling! 29 April 2014
Very comfortable Bought this for my granddaughter. My daughter is very pleased with it and said my granddaughter loves sitting in it. 25 February 2014
Comfortable car seat Really comfortable for baby easy to recline and very solid worth the money 13 November 2012
Perfect for everyday use As usual excellent service and delivery. Seat clips into the base we already own as easy as abc. Easy to recline and simple adjustment of straps to release when taking the kids out or tightening when strapping them in. Kids seems happy and look very comfortable. 02 October 2012
