This child car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by ECE R44/04 to be sold as suitable for children from birth to 36kg. But in our own tests, which are conducted at higher speeds and stronger forces than the standard requires, our lab experts noticed there were safety issues during the crash tests, including during the side-impact crash tests. The lab also highlighted problems that could lead to incorrect installation. Any car seat scoring 45% or less will become a Which? Don't Buy. Log in or sign up to Which? for more details.
