33 new seats for children of all sizes have been tested by European Automobile Clubs, among which the ACL, and the ICRT organisation. The “very good” rating was awarded once to the Silver Cross Dream seat + i-Size Base, and twenty-two seats were rated “good”. Two seats failed the tests, however, and were rated “unsatisfactory”.
The tests focused on safety in head-on and side collisions, handling, comfort and usage characteristics (cleaning and finishes). The scope of the tests was completed by tests on the ergonomics and toxic substance content. The objective here was to test the space and sitting position of the child and the parts in contact with the child.
As the range of products on offer is evolving all the time, our tests focused on the most recent models. These are products compliant with UN/ECE Regulation 129 (known as the “i-Size” standard) and restraint systems of all sizes as per UN/ECE Regulation 44 (in the five weight classes: 0, 0+, I, II and III).
See the test results.
Details of each seat are available on request from the ACL by calling 45 00 45-1 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that the second-hand child seat sale scheduled for 20 June has been cancelled. We will confirm the November date in due course in our media.
