About the 2014 Cybex Aton Q Infant Car Seat

Is it possible to judge a book by its cover? Sometimes, beauty obscures deeper flaws, or a humble appearance can distract you from an object’s true value. But sometimes, if you’re lucky, the appearance and the value match up: you might find a classic volume with a bold, modern, and lovely new jacket design, or you might find a superbly protective infant car seat that happens to look incredibly cool.  


That would be the Cybex Aton Q, which not only boasts some of the niftiest styling we’ve ever seen on an infant car seat, but also has some of the most exciting safety features. It looks futuristic, it’s simple to install and use, and most importantly, it will keep your baby safe in the car. Let’s have a closer look, shall we?   Features of the Cybex Aton Q Infant Car Seat include: 


  • Linear Side-Impact Protection (LSP): The earlier Cybex Aton 2 car seat also included an LSP system, but the new one is even better: these telescoping little arms increase your child’s safety in a side impact by up to 40%! To use the LSP, pull out the arm on the side of your infant car seat that’s facing the door; the LSP works by transferring the first forces of a side impact into the car seat’s shell, which absorbs the crash forces and channels them away from your baby. It’s such a simple device that does so much to keep kids safe!


  • Load leg: These devices are more commonly featured in car seats available in Europe, and we’re so glad that they’re starting to appear over here: load legs are incredibly effective in keeping an infant car seat stable in a collision and protecting your child from crash forces. The load leg on the Cybex Aton Q infant car seat improves the Forward Rotation rating in crash tests by at least 42% and improves the Head Injury Criterion (HIC) by 48%. What this boils down to in plain language: it radically reduces the stress on your child’s neck and head in the event of a collision, putting the force into the back of the car seat instead.         


  • Height-adjustable headrest and harness: No rethreading for a perfect fit! To adjust the car seat harness, just move the 8-position height-adjustable headrest. It couldn’t be easier to provide your child with a safe and comfy ride in the Cybex Aton Q. The car seat harness also features extra-wide Y-harness straps with a soft belt and crotch pads. 


  • Flat positioning: This feature is especially beneficial for the youngest passengers: the Cybex Aton Q Infant Car Seat produces the flattest possible lying angle between your baby’s head, neck, and chest, so his head won’t tilt forward, possibly obstructing his breathing.


  • Easy installation: Belt-tensioning plates make it as easy as 1, 2, 3 to snap your car seat base in with LATCH or safety belts. The Cybex Aton Q infant car seat can also be easily installed without the base, making it simple to use in vehicles other than your primary car like, for instance, a cab.  


And then there’s the stylish, space-age look: the Cybex Aton Q infant car seat boasts bold colors, a streamlined shape, and unusual silver accents. The fold-away canopy curves gracefully over the seat, providing UVP 50+ sun protection, as well as protection from wind and rain; you can extend it incrementally or tuck it away entirely. You can also purchase a variety of infant car seat adapters (sold separately) to turn your Aton Q and your stroller into a terrifically convenient and stylish travel system.  


In short, the Cybex Aton Q Infant Car Seat is exactly as good as it looks, with value to match its bold façade. It looks terrific, it does a great job at protecting your baby – and it makes you look like a very smart parent!


NOTE: The base to install in your car is included with the Cybex Aton Q Infant Car Seat.

Durable, easy to use, looks sleek, great fabric



The only complaint I have about this product is the weight. It is a tad on the heavy side. I love the fabric and the canopy on this! It looks awesome. I can not wait to use this!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Safety, Improved canopy design


Material is not summer friendly, Colors, Limited Accessories

The new Cybex Aton Q has clear advantages over the previous models in terms of safety (additional side impact protection) and canopy design (larger and prettier shaped canopy). The is a bit on a heavier side, but it is also more spacious and can accommodate a slightly larger child than most. My main complaint is the seat fabric. Two things: 1) it cannot be removed for cleaning (you can only spot clean) and 2) it is quite unsuitable for warm weather. The company does have a "summer" cover, but it is not available for sale in the US and as of now they have no plans to release it to the US market either. My one other complaint is the color of the canopy. Other than the purple and orange seat models, all other seat color choices have a black canopy which may get hot in the summer. Some more optimistic color choices matching the seat fabric would have been a much nicer way to go.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Infant Car Seat Aton Q Installation Video

Aton Q:

Safety meets Design

The Aton infant car seat Q stands for maximum safety and innovative technologies, united under the iconic roof of the CYBEX PLATINUM family.


The interaction of a clever telescopic Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System) and a height-adjustable headrest with an integrated harness guide ensures the highest level of safety and comfort. In addition a new function enabling the flattest possible lying angle between head, neck and chest reduces the risk of breathing difficulties for premature babies and very small newborns. A matching XXL foldaway sun canopy with UVP50+ perfectly protects against high sun irritation and strong wind.
