How we test Cybex child car seats
Our reviews of car seats are based on our thorough test program. Our tests are more rigorous than the requirements for the standard, and better reflect what happens in real-life crashes compared with the legal minimum test. Unlike the standard, we also test ease of use – checking that the seat is easy to install and adjust in different cars in any of the different modes (such as seatbelt or Isofix).
These components all feed in to the final review score. To be a Best Buy, a Group 0 or 0+ child car seat must score 77% or more. A Group 1,2,3 child car seat, or any of the combinations of these groups, need to score 74% or higher to be a Best Buy.

Cybex Juno 2-Fix
The Cybex Juno Fix is a Group 1 forward-facing child car seat which was launched in March 2013. It is designed for children from 9-18kg, or one to four years. It can be installed using Isofix mounts or the adult seatbelt. The child is restrained by an impact-shield cushion that fits across their tummy. The idea of this design is that in a crash, the child rolls forward around the shield to reduce the strain on the child’s neck.
Find out how it performed in our Cybex Juno 2-Fix review.
Cybex Aton 4
The Cybex Aton is the fourth generation of the popular Aton child car seat. It's a Group 0+ infant carrier for babies weighing up to 13kg or (around 12-15 months). It is rearward-facing and can be secured using an Isofix base or using the adult seatbelt. We've tested it in both modes in our crash tests. The Aton 4 has a 'lie-flat' position, side-impact protection and a large sun canopy. It can be used as a travel system with Cybex pushchairs.Read our Cybex Aton 4 car seat review.
The Sirona is a Group 0+/1 car seat for children from birth up to 18kg (from one year old to around four years old). It is installed using the Isofix fitting only. It can be used as an extended rearward-facing seat until the child reaches 18kg, or can be moved to a forward-facing position from 13kg. Older children are held in place by an impact shield rather than a harness.
