Car Seat Reviews

facebooktwitteryoutubefacebooktwitteryoutube

Which? are well known for their unbiased reviews, unfortunately we are not allowed to disclose their “Best Buy” and “Don’t Buy” recommendations. We can tell you, however, that some child car seat manufacturers have been awarded “Best Buy” for one model and a “Don’t Buy” for another!

Criteria for choosing a child car seat:

  • Installation: How easy is the car seat to install?
  • Side impact: How effective is the seat in side impact tests?
  • Ease of Use: Does the seat have useful features such as simple harness height adjuster?
  • Escape proof?:Getting arms out of harness renders car seat useless in an accident and causes driver distraction.

Children push their hands under the harness, rendering the car seat useless in the event of an accident

Which? perform a number of tests (try Which? now for just £1), derived from the Euro NCAP, that go well beyond the compulsory standards of the ECE R44 regulations that all child seats must comply with. Car seat manufacturers have made huge strides in a number of areas of improving the safety of car seats. However, there are still many instances where the car seat can be incorrectly fitted or used that can put a toddler’s life at risk. With this in mind, the car seat reviews by Which? place considerable emphasis on how easy a seat is to install and use. If it is difficult, then there is a high probability that it will be installed incorrectly and could result in catastrophic consequences in the event of an accident.

So when a car seat is rated a “Best Buy” or “Don’t Buy” by Which?, they have considered a number of factors that help ensure your child is protected whilst travelling in a car.

Which? have reviewed a huge range of child car seats to see how the various car seats perform when tested on front & side impact protection and ease of use:
