Chicco Youniverse Fix review

Product alert

This child car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by ECE R44/04 to be sold as suitable for children from 9-36kg. 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 forward-facing and belted in Group 1 and Group 2/3 modes. Any car seat scoring 45% or less will become a Which? Don't Buy.

The Chicco Youniverse Fix is a Group 1/2/3 multi-group car seat equipped with Isofix. It has three recline positions and side-safety-system technology. It also has a lift-up buckle for strap adjustment, so you can adjust the harness to several different heights easily and quickly. We've put this seat through our tough crash tests and have made it a Don't Buy.
