Britax Römer Max-Way Plus review
This child car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by ECE R44/04 to be sold as suitable for children from 9-25kg. In our own more rigorous tests it achieved a good overall safety rating, but the seat is so difficult to install that there's a danger of installing it incorrectly which, along with other drawbacks, means that its score falls low enough to be a Don't Buy.
