This non-ISOFIX forward-facing car seat is secured using the vehicle’s seat belts so it’s suited to older cars without ISOFIX.
Lightweight and forward-facing, it has five different seat recline positions and an integral five-point harness with a handy one-pull adjustor, plus deep, wide wings for side impact protection.
The body support cushion provides extra security for younger children, while the head cushion and chest and buckle pads offer added comfort.
One thing to bear in mind, though, is that if you replace your car with a newer model before your child outgrows this seat, you will probably need to replace the seat too.
Tester Nadine-Johanna Stewart, from London, mum to Max (13 months), said: “I found the straps very difficult to adjust, so I would only use this as a spare seat, perhaps for a relative’s vehicle for very occasional use.”
Tester Rabab Kane, from Co. Antrim, mum to Patrice, 9, Alesha, 6, Matthew, 5, and Sophia, 2¾, said: “We found the straps impossible to adjust to make this a comfortable seat for Sophia. Because of this, I would not recommend this seat for her age group.”
Tester Dorian Spackman, from Cornwall, dad to Max (23 months), said: “A good budget seat, very reasonably priced but no ISOFIX means swapping it between cars is a hassle. However, at this price that seems acceptable.”
