Britax Römer Dualfix review£250.00
The Britax DualFix car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by the ECE R44/04 standard to be sold as suitable for children from birth to when they weigh 18kg, and in our own more rigorous tests it achieved a good overall safety rating. However, the harness on the DualFix could not be secured tightly enough on our newborn test dummy - there was too much slack and our experts believe there is a small risk that a wriggly newborn could free themselves from the shoulder straps of the harness. For a safety issue like this we limit the total score overall to 20%, and the score drops below our Don't Buy threshold of 45%.
We've tested the latest version of the Dualfix, the Britax Römer DualFix i-Size. Click on the link to read more on how it performed.
