Nania Revo review
This child car seat has passed the regulatory tests required by ECE R44/04 to be sold as suitable for babies and toddlers from 9kg to 18kg. The regulation this child car seat is approved too doesn't include a side-impact crash test. However, our crash tests include frontal and side impact scenarios are designed to replicate real-life crash scenarios. The poor two-star overall safety score from our tests shows that this seat fails to protect a child sufficiently, exposing the child to a higher risk of serious injury. It's difficult to install, too, and its low score makes it a Don't Buy.
