The Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size 360 Rotation car seat is one of the few car seats suitable from 40cm to 125cm (from birth to around 6 years) and meets i-Size safety standards, making it a great choice for both safety and longevity. Cozy N Safe pride themselves on creating car seats that combine comfort and safety, without a huge price tag – and at £229.99, the Morgan really delivers.
It boasts a 360 degree rotation, making it a breeze to get your baby or child in or out, lots of comfy padding, a recline function and retractable side impact protection.
Annabelle tested the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat with her newborn daughter Orla and her 2-year-old son Tadhg. They tested the car seat in a Hyundai Tucson. Annabelle is the lifestyle editor at Closer magazine and has been a journalist for 12 years. She tested the car seat on short journeys over a period of 3 weeks, and on 2 longer day trips.
I loved the look of the car seat when I opened the box. The black-and-grey colour scheme is smart and the fabric felt luxurious. The car seat looks plush and padded, and seemed less bulky than our current 360 degree car seat.
How do you install the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat?
The ISOFIX base is attached to the car seat and they are then attached to the car together. If it is being used for an older child, the Morgan can also be installed using the vehicle’s 3-point seat belt.
Was the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat easy to install?
My husband installed the seat, as I had recently had a Caesarean section. He found it simple to fix into our car using the ISOFIX system, and the written instructions were clear. What’s more, once the car seat is in, it stays there, so you don’t need to install it on a regular basis, unless you are moving it between cars. The installation video on the Cozy N Safe website was missing, which was a shame, as I usually find videos easier to follow. One reviewer on Halfords noted that this car seat was very easy to assemble and install.
How much does the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat weigh?
The car seat weighs 13.2kg, similar to the Joie Stages FX car seat weighing 13.9kg, so I may have struggled installing it on my own.
Is it slimline?
I was impressed at how slimline the Morgan is compared to our current 360 degree car seat. This means more leg room for my son who is forward-facing – a huge plus.
How does the Morgan i-Size compare to other Cozy N Safe car seats?
This is Cozy N Safe’s only i-Size car seat that is suitable from birth, so it is an exciting release from them. Their car seats are known for being stylish and comfortable, but this new offering is a great addition.
What are the key safety features of the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat?
The car seat meets the latest EU i-Size regulations and has a top tether belt for extra peace of mind. This top tether is easy to buckle in – it just clips into the buckle on the back of the vehicle’s seat. The seat also has side impact protection, which offers additional safeguarding in the instance of a side crash and is activated using a simple button on the side. I found all the safety features impressive and loved the extra reassurance they gave me.
Can the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat be used both forward- and rear-facing?
Yes, it’s rear-facing until your child is 87cm, or around 15 months old. After that, you pull a lever to spin the seat so that it faces forwards.
Is it comfortable in rear-facing position?
My daughter is newborn, but I can imagine the car seat being comfortable rear-facing until the age suggested; it isn’t that bulky, so I don’t think it would feel too cramped.
How does the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat rotate?
The car seat rotates through 360 degrees and semi-locks at 90 degrees so that you can get your child in and out with ease. This feature is fantastic, and so much easier than straining your back trying to strap a child in from the side. Reviewers on Halfords loved the swivel feature, too. The one-handed rotation was also useful, as it means that you can carry your child with one arm and rotate the car seat with the other. The lever to rotate the seat felt a little flimsy considering how high quality the car seat is otherwise, but it’s not a huge issue.
Does it have any unique features?
There aren’t many car seats that offer the value of a long-use car seat (birth to 6 years) and the safety features of i-Size. The one-handed rotation is also really useful.
How comfortable is your baby or child in the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat?
My newborn seemed very snug; the car seat is very padded, and the fabric is lovely and plush. I liked the recline feature, which meant my baby looked more comfortable on longer journeys. My son also liked sitting in the seat: he had plenty of leg room when facing forwards, and never seemed hot when we took him out, even after long journeys. He sometimes tries to escape from the straps of his car seat, but didn’t try once with this one, so that counts as high praise from my toddler!
How well did it work with differently aged children?
This car seat was ideal for my 2-year-old son, as it’s easy to use and not too bulky. For our baby, I’d use the Cozy N Safe Morgan for longer journeys, as she seems more comfortable in it. However, our other baby car seat can be clipped onto our pram with adapters, which is ideal for such a little baby, as you don’t have to wake them if they fall asleep in the car, and this is a feature the Morgan lacks.
Is the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat big enough for the average 6-year-old?
I think so, yes; the car seat turns into a booster seat when your child is big enough, and you use the car’s 3-point seat belt once your child reaches 18kg or 105cm.
How do you adjust the Morgan i-Size car seat from a 5-point harness seat to a high-back booster?
We found it easy to switch the car seat between newborn and toddler, by removing the infant insert, bringing the headrest up and rotating from rear-facing to forward-facing. This takes just a minute or so. As your child grows, you can then use the vehicle’s 3-point seat belt, which is also easy to do, as the base stays on the car seat. It wouldn’t be difficult to keep switching if you have children of different ages.
How do you rate the straps on the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat?
They were easy to clip in and felt secure. It was easy to adjust the strap length and to tighten the straps. They didn’t get in the way while I was putting in either the baby or the toddler, which was fantastic, as this has been an issue for me with other car seats.
How robust does it feel?
The Morgan i-Size car seat feels very high quality, and I love the material. I can see it lasting for many years. My only criticism would be that the one-handed rotation lever felt a little less sturdy, and a bit plasticky. Reviewers on Uberkids felt that the seat was very sturdy and of high quality.
Does the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat recline?
The car seat reclines 50 degrees, which is ideal for my baby, and is also handy for my toddler if he falls asleep. The recline mechanism is a twist knob on the front of the seat, and I found it a bit fiddly. It took a good few twists to recline fully, and I think a lever would have been easier to use.
How good is the headrest?
It is very padded and really helped to keep my baby’s head in a good position, which is often a challenge with a newborn. For my toddler, we removed the infant insert and extended the headrest up (which is easy to do using the lever) and it was still very comfortable. He fell asleep in the seat a few times, and I felt his head was well supported.
How easy is the Morgan i-Size car seat to clean?
The covers are fully washable at 30 degrees, which is perfect, as my son likes to eat in the car and my baby was sick on the car seat! The covers are easy to remove and you can also spot-clean them easily.
How easy is the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat to move around?
It is fairly big, and quite heavy at 13.2kg, so not the easiest to move around. That said, the car seat stays fixed in your car, so moving it is not a daily job, unless you are regularly switching it between cars.
Does it have a sun hood?

Can you buy any additional accessories for the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat?

Who would the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat be most useful for?
This car seat is ideal for families who want to buy one car seat that will last for many years – or for families wanting a car seat they can regularly switch for use with children of different ages.
Is the Cozy N Safe Morgan i-Size car seat worth the money?
Yes, without a doubt. It is long-lasting, stylish, easy to use and has great safety features. It is really great value.
