New carry cot excels in Which? crash testingExclusive videos added to 18 child seat reviews

17 February 2012

Which? has been subjecting another batch of child car seats to its unique crash- and ease-of-use-testing, and has just released the latest batch of crash test videos for 18 child car seats.

Jane Transporter tested

Among the new crash test video seats is the Jane Transporter, one of the newest carry cots for use in cars. In the past, we've usually found carry cots unable to protect a baby well in a crash, and have often give them our 'Don't Buy' recommendation. 

But the Jane Transporter bucks this trend, offering excellent side crash protection and very good protection in our front crash test. 

Watch the video to see how well it protects.

But as with many carry cots, it's quite complicated to install. To find out how it did in our ease of use assessments, (and whether we recommend it) read the full review., which is a Group 0 carrier, (suitable for children from birth up to 10kg), 

Other new models crash tested

Along with the Jane Transporter, the newly released videos cover infant carriers like the Besafe iZi Go, Chicco Autofix and Safety 1st Primeofix, which we've also tested as a Group 1 seat (for toddlers). And there are several seats for older children, like the Concord Transformer Click, Cybex Pallasfix, Kiddy Guardian Pro 2 and Recaro Milano.
