Munich, October 27, 2015

In the current child seat test of the automobile club ADAC and Stiftung Warentest no product received the "very good ". The testers awarded 13 times the grade "good" and three times the grade " satisfactory". Six Seats cut "poor" from.

High demands

Since the child seat test higher requirements than required by law, exceed all seats, the "good" or "satisfactory" given the overall assessment, the law significantly. Two infant carriers that were studied in three different variants, received in a pollutant test the "poor ". Because this review could not be offset by a good performance in other criteria, the assessment suggests "poor" directly in the overall rating down.

Good Seats for all ages

The good news: For children of all ages are found seats with the grade "good": ?? Up to 13 kilograms ( 0+ ): Graco SnugFix + SnugFix Isofix Base, Graco SnugFix, Simple Parenting Doona + Car Seat, Simple Parenting Doona + Car Seat Isofix Base + ?? I Size: Maxi-Cosi Pebble Plus + 2wayFix and Maxi-Cosi Pebble Plus ( each 45-75 cm ), Concord Reverso ( 40-105 cm ) ?? 9 to 18 kilograms ( I): Maxi-Cosi Tobi, Britax Römer King II LS ?? 9 to 36 kilograms ( I / II / III ): Joie Trillo Shield ?? 15 to 36 KG: Britax Römer Kid II, Britax Römer Kidfix SL, Kiddy Smartfix

New I-size models

Gradually, more and more products come on the market that meet the requirements of ECE R 129th Four of these so-called I-size models were examined in the current test. Three of them received the judgment "good". The I-sized child seats are not distinguished by the weight of the child, but according to the body size. The manufacturer can thereby set itself, which is suitable for the size range of the respective seat. Thus, the division into classes is eliminated.

New test method

The child seat test has been revised for the 2015th Thus, the current results are indeed those of May this year, comparable, but not before the results of the years. Among the new features included, among other things, a new body, the frontal impact test to be used ( Golf VII ) and a new Crashdummy named Q10, which replaces the previous P10. The main criteria of the test were safety, operation, ergonomics and pollutant content . ( sl )
