The Juno 2 Fix and Aton 3 both win Which? Best Buy Awards

The latest CYBEX car seats to be reviewed by Which? have each been awarded the Best Buy Award – receiving a score of 79% or more 

The CYBEX Juno 2 Fix and the CYBEX Aton 3 both emerged victorious, meaning that CYBEX now has a total of 7 Best Buy awards

CYBEX Juno 2-fix, Score: 81%

The Which? Best Buy Award for the CYBEX Juno 2-fix (designed for children aged from approximately 1-4 years), was reinforced by the results published by the leading German consumer watch dog Stiftung Warentest and Europe’s biggest motoring club ADAC. It was the only seat out of 16 tested which received the highest rating across all three test criteria and was comfortably the overall winner across all age-groups. Just one of the reasons it scored so well was that it made misuse virtually impossible. The forward-facing car seat features the CYBEX safety cushion (patent pending) to significantly increase protection in frontal collisions which account for 59% of accidents. In a frontal collision, conventional systems with a harness system hold the shoulders back, while the head is flung forward with great force. According to our findings this can lead to acute injuries in the head and neck area. Another disadvantage of harness systems is the high risk of securing it incorrectly. Field studies and research by various independent institutions, for example the German Insurance Association (GDV), reveal that Group 1 seats with 5-point harness systems are associated with the highest rate of misuse (73%) when it comes to installing the seat in the car and securing the child.    

CYBEX Aton 3 (with base 2 fix), Score: 79%
The award-winning rear-facing CYBEX Aton 3 infant carrier (with base 2 fix) is designed for babies weighing up to 13kg, or approximately 12-15 months and, again, it came out on top after being subjected to the Which? tests which examined safety (front and side crash, as well as seat design) and user friendliness (installation, comfort, cleaning and the quality of workmanship).

CYBEX continually raises the bar in terms of safety by putting its products through hundreds of crash tests every year, continually learning from the results.
