Nania BeLine SP Luxe review£45.00
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 forces than the standard requires, this seat scored poorly for frontal-impact results when used in Group 1 mode. For this reason we've had to limit the total score overall for this seat, to the Group 1 results, and it drops just below our Don't Buy threshold of 45%.
A car seat should be able to protect your child well enough in both crash scenarios, as you can't tell what type of accident you may be involved in. And as we expect parents to use this seat in both modes it's meant to cover, we limit the score to the worst-case scenario. In this case, Group 1 at 37%. Any car seat scoring 45% or less will become a Don't Buy.
