Test results as a driving force for continual improvement

To achieve the highest safety levels, CYBEX products have to pass hundreds of internal crash tests. What’s more, our car seats are regularly tested and evaluated by independent test institutes. With tests conducted by German automobile club ADAC and German consumer organisation Stiftung Warentest, for example, the test criteria go far beyond the legally required standards, making them an important driving force in the continual improvement of child safety. We learn from the results of each of these tests and they lead to the immediate improvement and further development of our products.

Top score for the belted version

Most parents use the Aton Q secured by the vehicle belt. The Aton Q was awarded a historic top score for the belted version. We are especially proud of this excellent result.
