Every Child Restraint System (CRS) must be installed according to the instructions provided in the vehicle´s user guide.
Children from birth until they weight 10 to 13 kilos, must use a CRS on the backseat facing backward
Babies have heavy heads and weak necks, this is why they need a rear-facing CRS with a reclined backrest. This way, the baby has extra support for his neck and head, in case of a sudden braking or crash. It is recommended to use this type of restraint system for as long as possible, provided their height and weight allow them to.Video
Children between 9 and 18 kilos must use a CRS on the backseat facing forward
CRSs belonging to this group face forward and are suitable for children that weigh at least 9 kg. Never place a child who weighs less than 9 kilos facing forward.Video
Children between 15 and 25 kilos must use CRS on the backseat facing forward.
Booster seats are designed for children that due to their weight or height can no longer travel in group 1´s CRS with a harness. The Booster´s function is to correctly position the child, so they can use the car´s seat belt, with the parts across the shoulder and the lap fitting on the right places. Booster seats should ALWAYS be used with 3-point seat belts.Video
Children between 22 and 36 kilos must use a booster seat with the seatbelt on the backseat, facing forward.
It is relevant to highlight that you may now find boosters with backrests that can bear the child´s weight and height until they can use only the seat belt, so we recommend to extend its use as long as possible as the protection it provides is slightly superior to this group´s. CRS of this group should ALWAYS be used with a headrest.Video
