It’s that time of year, when the bi-annual car seat test results are out and parents as well as car seat manufacturer are looking forward to the results!
On this occasion, we would like to announce that CYBEX Sirona S i-Size performs well in the European test of child car seats carried-out by Stiftung Warentest and ADAC. The CYBEX car seat received a “GOOD” with the final grade „2.3”.
The CYBEX Sirona S i-Size can be used rearward as well as forward-facing. CYBEX recommends to transport children in the rearward-facing position for as long as possible (up to approx. 105 cm). The car seat is suitable for a forward-facing position for children from the age of 16 months and a height of approx. 76 cm to 105 cm.
The following functionalities in different categories are responsible for the excellent result:
- Safety: The maximum in side-impact protection (1.0) and an energy-absorbing shell guarantee the best possible safety for children in case of a side-impact. The Energy Reduction-Technology (ER-Tech) reduces forces on the neck in a head-on collision and protects the child’s sensitive neck and shoulder region.
- Handling: The CYBEX Sirona S i-Size can be easily turned towards the car door thanks to the 360° rotation mechanism. This way, parents’ backs are being spared at boarding and alighting. The “one-click” ISOFIX system makes it very easy to install the car seat in the correct way. Any misuse during the installation is minimal.
- Ergonomics: The one-hand recline function offers maximum comfort and a restful sleep on long car rides. The 12-position height adjustable headrest offers protection that grows with the child.
German consumer organization Stiftung Warentest, working alongside German automobile club ADAC, and other European consumer institutions evaluate selected car seats and infant carriers each year with regards to safety, ergonomics, handling and hazardous substances. Overall 23 car seat were tested in total this round.
