Car security watchdog SRI tested 30 different models of baby and toddler car seats for safety, installation, ease of use and comfort – and 37% failed.

“We are extremely surprised by the huge number of failures,” commented a spokesperson for Spanish motor club Race.

Of 30 car seat models, only 13 were judged to be ‘good’, six were ‘acceptable’ but an high 11 models were complete write-offs.

Cybex seats were consistently highly recommended while Casualplay Sono Fix came bottom of the survey.
