Maxi Cosi Beryl 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 birth to 25kg. But in our own tests, which are conducted at higher speeds and stronger forces than the standard requires, this seat gets an average safety rating. Our lab experts spotted issues when tested in group 2 mode (from 15 to 25kg). It’s also scored poorly for ease of use and the risk of incorrect installation. Any car seat scoring 45% or less will become a Which? Don't Buy.

That’s a long time, and our car seat lab experts will check whether there’s room for the average six or seven year old to sit  comfortably so you can use it for its full lifetime.
