Apramo All Stage review
This child car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by ECE R44/04 to be sold as suitable for children from 0-36kg. But in our own tests, which are conducted at higher speeds and stronger forces than the standard requires, this seat scores poorly for frontal-impact when used rearward-facing in Group 0+/1 mode and forward-facing Isofix Group 1, as well as belted-only in Group 2/3. Any car seat scoring 45% or less will become a Which? Don't Buy.
