On May 24th ADAC and Stiftung Warentest published this year’s big car seat test. In total 28 car seats were tested divided into various groups. We at BeSafe are delighted to announce that BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size was presented Test Winner in group 1-4 years and in addition was given the extremely high score of 1.1 in the safety criteria.
iZi Kid X2 i-Size – Rear facing, Plus test Approved Test Winner
BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size is a pure rear facing car seat, tested and approved according to the toughest requirements on the market; UN R129 (i-Size) and the Swedish Plus test. The car seat was assigned highest score in both the side impact test and in a frontal collision.
iZi Kid X2 i-Size achieves the remarkable safety result of 1.1, a result that is by far the best result ever amongst the 66 seats tested for children 1-4 years listed in the ADAC archive. For BeSafe, this is clear proof of what a rear facing, i-Size and Plus test approved car seat can accomplish and what safety level it provides.
iZi Kid i-Size has also been awarded Test Winner by the UK Consumer organisation Which?, Danish Tænk and Dutch Consumentenbond.
Innovative Safety Solutions provide increased safety for your child
Safety has always been BeSafes’s top priority. Just ’Approved’ has never been good enough and over the years we have developed several features to increase safety further. SIP+, Side Impact Protection + is our latest innovation. An additional side impact protection unit that reduces load on the child by an additional 20%. This together with the integrated head support SIP and an inner shell of energy absorbing material ensures that all BeSafe car seats tested perform at the top of the ratings in a side impact.
BeSafe iZi Modular presented with top safety results
When the Modular concept was launched in Autumn 2015 it was not only two car seats that were launched, it was a new concept or approach to child safety in cars, a complete solution 0-4 years.
The concept has been celebrated by both retailers and consumers and is now one of the most popular options in the quality segment of the market.
iZi Go Modular specifically receives a “Very Good” score in safety, which has resulted in a “Best Buy” award by the UK Consumer organisation Which?.
iZi Modular is a combi seat meaning that it can be used both forward facing and rear facing. The testing Company always show the ”worst” results meaning the forward facing installation which is also in line with BeSafe’s philosophy to remain rearward facing for as long a spossible. With a safety result of 1.8 iZi Modular is therefore placed in the absolute top segment in the group i-Size seats tested.
We see today’s test as proof of where BeSafe focus is and that we living up to our high standards on safety. However for us it is equally important that we find safety solutions that work in real situations, in everyday use, and not just theorectical laboratory situations.
When we fulfill those requirements, we can also be sure that our car seats are performing not just in the crash-test laboratory but also in reality and it is there that the consumer choices make a difference!
