This is the first car seat in Europe to comply with the new iSize regulations.
It allows children to remain rear-facing until four years of age, although the seat can also be positioned to face forwards from 15 months.
It can only be secured with the ISOFIX 2wayFix base (an extra £175), which features a light and sound indicator to confirm that the seat is correctly installed.
Four recline settings make it ideal for naptime and the headrest is easily adjusted. Unlike standard Group 1 seats, this is suitable from six months old, or 67cm (iSize rules are based on length, not weight).
Tester Nadine-Johanna Stewart, from London, mum to Max (13 months), said:
“Very easy to install, and I like that it was rearward as well as forward facing. Comfortable, and great quality, but takes up lots of space in the car.”
Tester Rabab Kane, from Co. Antrim, mum to Patrice, 9, Alesha, 6, Matthew, 5, and Sophia, 2¾, said:
“The safety indicator is an excellent feature but the base’s support leg restricts access for other passengers, which I found a real drawback with four children in the vehicle.”
Tester Dorian Spackman, from Cornwall, dad to Max (23 months), said:
“The perfect mix of value for money, design and practicality. Tricky to install but easy to adjust, with good visibility. Max and I loved it!”
