The Swedish brand is the first car maker to test child seats in crash test and is launching a range of three new child seats, emphasising on design, comfort and convenience.
Lotta Jakobsson from Volvo Cars Safety Centre said: “We understand that many people find child safety in cars a complex and sometimes confusing subject. We have focused for many years on communicating clear guidelines around how child seats should be used and the correct way to install them. Our focus is on ensuring that young children travel in the safest manner possible, depending upon their size and age. This means rearward-facing up to the age of at least three or four years, and after that with child seats or booster cushions until the child is up to 140 cm in height. The safety benefits are unquestionable, yet many parents unwittingly allow their children to sit forward-facing too early. One of the many reasons quoted for this is comfort – the child complains that there is not enough legroom, or is too warm due to the upholstery.”
The new generation of child seats are made with a better breathable and comfortable upholstery made of 80% wool textile which makes the seats smoother to the touch, highly durable, and better-performing in both hot and cold climates. The seats also have a slender design, aimed to give more legroom and overall comfort. They are also designed to suit the needs of children of different ages and sizes:
The seats will be available from the beginning of June in UK.
