Rear facing with Cybex

Cybex has introduced the Sirona Z i-Size R, an award-winning car seat that has achieved ‘Best in Class’ and excellent results in the May 2019 ADAC Car Seat test.

The Sirona Z i-Size R, combined with the Base Z, offers parents easy entry and exit from the door, so that they can easily switch from rearward facing to the boarding position – but its clever functionality prevents the seat being positioned forward-facing at all.

In the UK, according to the latest R129 regulation, parents have to use a rearward-facing car seat for their baby from birth until 15 months. However, it is recognised widely that it is beneficial to use a seat longer than this in the rearward facing position if possible. Using a rearward-facing car seat reduces the risk of injury in a head-on collision by more than 80% when compared to a forward-facing system car seat, therefore the Sirona Z i-Size R is the ideal car seat safety solution to protect children from birth to four years.

Luke Burns, UK GM at Cybex, said: “When it comes to car seat safety, we understand how crucial it is to be constantly innovating and developing our car seats to ensure we offer maximum safety for children.

“Our rear-facing only car seat will ensure parents that want to keep their child rearward facing to four years can do this whilst having the convenience of an easy boarding position and ensuring that any care givers or grandparents do not accidently turn a child forward-facing.”

The Sirona Z i-Size R has a number of safety features including integrated Linear Side-Impact Protection which provides increased safety in the event of a side-impact collision. Combined with the energy absorbing shell, it reduces the force of a side-impact in combination by approximately 25%.

Additional features include a 12-position height-adjustable headrest, one-hand recline and rotation function to the car door for ease of use, and a 2-click installation with ISOFIX, allowing for simple installation and increased safety. Plus, the handy installation indicator also helps to prevent a possible misuse.

The Sirona Z i-Size R is available in selected specialist stores, starting from an RRP of £259.95 and £184.95 for the Base Z. For more information, visit www.cybex-online.com
