FOXBORO, Mass., Sept. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Dorel
Juvenile, a segment of Dorel Industries (TSX: DII.B, DII.A) and the
world's largest juvenile products manufacturer, has announced the
launch of Coral XP, a revolutionary infant car seat and carrier
nesting system under the Maxi-Cosi brand that will introduce a new
way of carrying the future.
Coral XP is the first-ever integrated car seat and carrier
system that is built to help parents move about effortlessly.
Maxi-Cosi wanted to give parents an extra hand while still being
able to keep baby close. The Coral's revolutionary lightweight
inner carrier, weighing just about 5 lbs., provides seamless
transitions from one location to another, and has a contoured carry
handle with a soft grip for comfortable carry. The lightweight
inner carrier can be removed from the car seat's outer carrier
shell with the push of a button and with the use of the padded
retractable side handles. With a specially designed,
first-of-its-kind cross body flex-strap, the Coral lets parents go
through their day with ease, so they can get things done.
"The Coral XP marks the latest innovation in Maxi-Cosi car seat
solutions - solutions created by parents, for parents," says
Kim Ashley, Director of Product
Marketing, Car Seats at Maxi-Cosi. "We know and understand all too
well the struggles parents face in their everyday routines while
caring for young children. This integrated car seat aims to reduce
stress and improve convenience so parents can go about their daily
tasks with ease, while keeping their children close and comfy."

The unique 3-part Nesting
System includes a lightweight inner carrier, car seat outer carrier
shell and car seat base and was developed for babies weighing four
to twenty-two pounds. The nested system is compatible with
Maxi-Cosi strollers and an array of premium strollers.
Additionally, the inner carrier adapter, which is sold separately,
allows for the inner carrier to be connected to a stroller without
the use of the outer carrier. The nested system is aircraft
certified and ready to travel, and meets and exceeds all
government safety standards.
"At Maxi-Cosi, we're focused on designing innovative products
that make parenthood more seamless and convenient because we know
how hard it can be," said Paul
Powers, President of Dorel Juvenile USA. "We are very excited to offer a new way
of carrying the future that meets the evolving needs of parenthood
and lends a helping hand to hardworking parents everywhere."
After a successful launch of the Coral car seat in Europe in late 2019, the U.S. team developed
their own version of Coral XP to meet all U.S. compliant
regulations. Beginning September
2020, the product will be available online for
direct-to-consumer purchase at MaxiCosi.com, and will be available
at Albee Baby, Babylist, buybuyBABY and Pottery Barn Kids. The
Coral XP retails at $399.99, and
