RECARO win Which? Best Buy

RECARO sets new standards as Privia and the RECARO fix base are awarded a Which? Best Buy RECARO Child Safety Ltd

RECARO are pleased to announce the new RECARO Privia and RECARO fix base has been awarded a Which? Best Buy in the latest series of testing completed by the UK consumer group. With an excellent overall score of 87%, Which? are describing it as "the best seat they have ever tested".  

This excellent test result echoes Privia’s recent test result from the German consumer group, Stiftung Warentest. Privia combined with the RECARO fix base achieved record breaking results, with both consumer groups rating it the best seat ever tested. 

The Which? car seat crash tests are more stringent than the current UK standards require. During these rigorous assessments, Privia scored an impressive five stars in the front crash testing as well as five stars in the side impact testing when installed with the RECARO fix base.  

The RECARO fix base combined with the Privia ensures a more secure fix and facilitates a fast and error-free installation in the vehicle. The RECARO fix base gives parents peace of mind with a clear, easy to read indicator on the front of the base that shows correct securing of the child seat. Which? stated Privia is easy to install, helped by the clear instructions and all-important warning labels, and they rated the chances of installing it incorrectly very low.   

With the introduction of Privia, RECARO presents the unique "HERO" Headrest Optimization System for the first time. This innovative safety concept prevents twisting of the straps, ensures optimal fit and helps with the safe fastening of the child. The "HERO" system protects the particularly sensitive head area of the child in the event of a side impact collision by additional side panels. Which? added that the seat is comfortable, with good padding and plenty of room within the seat itself. 
The low weight of just 3.7 kg makes the Privia extremely lightweight, no lighter baby shell with comparable equipment is currently available on the market. The ergonomic handle makes Privia comfortable and easy to carry and the release handle on the back ensures a more accessable and comfortable hold on Privia when releasing it from the RECARO fix base. 

RECARO benefits from many years of experience in seat development in the areas of luxury cars, aircraft, motorsport and child safety. Lightweight construction, design, ergonomics and security are core competencies of the company.   
Privia is compatible for use on many other manufacturers’ pushchairs. Available in eight colours with breathable covers made from durable upholstery are machine washable at 30°C. Accessories such as the RECARO fix base for ISOFIX connection, rain cover and mosquito net are all available.
