Child Restraint Systems (SRI) required on all vehicles, transport children. There are dozens of brands and models, and some are better than others. A handful, not even recommended. We are talking about protecting the life of a child, and this is a very serious issue.
A comprehensive pan-European report is produced annually, which carefully analyzes the CRS available on the market. In Spain, RACE is responsible for its implementation.
They were viewed in total 32 chair brands, and the overall test result is satisfactory. 28 out of 32 models received good ratings and are considered safe and reliable. Nonetheless two brands and two models of child car seats received one star, and RACE itself does not recommend buying it.
On the opposite side is one chair, Cybex Anoris T i-Size, scored the maximum number of points 5 stars. This is a premium model that even has its own airbag. But, as you might guess, it’s not cheap. It costs 750 euros.
