The prices of the 26 child car seats currently being examined by Stiftung Warentest are between 68 and 700 euros – a huge discrepancy. But even more important than the price is the safety of the seats. Two models were classified as unsatisfactory in terms of accident safety, and pollution was the problem for two others.

The Cybex Anoris T i-Size is suitable for children from 76 to 115 cm and with an average price of around 700 euros it is by far the most expensive in the test. But it is also the only seat for children and small children that received the overall rating of “very good” (1.5).
A technical innovation was highlighted and praised in the Stiftung Warentest test: The Cybex Anoris T i-Size has an airbag that opens directly in front of the child in the event of an accident and stretches a cushion from head to knee. Parents can be particularly relaxed on car trips with their offspring – which is also due to the fact that the child is fixed in the seat with an easily adjustable impact shield instead of a seat belt.
There are two categories of child car seats: baby carriers (depending on the model, suitable for children from 45 cm to 75, 83 or 87 cm) and child seats for newborns and children up to 1.50 meters. All ten infant carriers received the verdict “good”, no harmful substances were found here. On the other hand, the Stiftung Warentest found pollutants in almost all of the larger child car seats, which is particularly regrettable for the Noemi from Walser Kids Experts, which would otherwise have received a recommendation and now – see above – scores “poor”.
