Top Rated Infant Car Seats 2018

The latest ADAC results have just arrived!!!

23 safety seats from different sizes and weight classes were tested in spring, 2018. This year there are two seats with edge-cutting technology among the tested products. One of them includes a built-in airbag system (Maxi-CosiAxissfix Air). The other one is the first tested booster seat with back support according to UN ECE Reg. 129 (Besafe iZi Flex Fix).

As in all the tests since 2015, all the seats are tested for safety (front and side crash), operation, ergonomics and pollutant content.
