TEST WINNER Group 0+/1 – GERMAN STIFTUNG WARENTEST
- According to ADAC: Strain caused by impact very low in a frontal collision
- According to ÖAMTC: The safest Group 1 seat in a frontal collision
- According to TCS: A highly recommendable seat
Switzerland’s biggest automobile association TCS (Touring Club Switzerland) rates the CYBEX Sirona as “HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE”. The ÖAMTC (Austrian Automobile, Motorcycle and Touring Club), the Austrian equivalent to ADAC, underscores the excellent safety standard of the CYBEX Sirona with a dream score of 1.2 for frontal impact protection. In a frontal collision – at 59% the most frequent kind of accident in daily road traffic – the rear-facing child seat guarantees outstanding protection for your child.
According to ADAC, child car seats in which children weighing more than 13 kg are secured against the direction of travel are particularly recommendable if a baby grows very quickly and is soon too big for an infant carrier. Because in a frontal collision, the strain of the impact on a small child – particularly on the delicate neck area – is much lower if it is secured in a rear-facing seat (www.adac.de). For children in this age group, in particular, the CYBEX Sirona is the safest seat in a frontal collision according to ÖAMTC. No other child car seat in Group 1 (9-18 kg) achieved a grade of 1.2 in the category frontal impact protection (www.oeamtc.at).
The intelligent functionality of the CYBEX Sirona makes it almost impossible to install wrongly. Not only is it easy to install the seat, it is also roomy and comfortable for older children. According to Stiftung Warentest the Sirona is a spacious, rear-facing Isofix seat for children from birth up to 18 kg (test 6/2013, www.test.de).
The CXBEX Sirona has been a hit since its launch (Kind + Jugend Innovations Award 2012, Baby Innovation Award winner in the Netherlands, BANTA Award winner in the UK, “very good” from Autobild.de), and not just because of its outstanding safety features; it also won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award in 2012. What’s more, the seat also boasts unbeatable functionality and design: the clever 360° rotation system makes life easier and less back-breaking for parents, while the patent-pending linear side-impact protection (L.S.P System) absorbs the energy of a collision in the early stages.
