Maxi-Cosi trio are highly rated in safety by STiWa
Great news from Maxi-Cosi as it announces the results for the Spring 2022 testing by ADAC, part of the Stiftung Warentest group, annual research session. In the results published for May 2022, Maxi-Cosi performed fantastically across three of the brand’s recent additions to the extensive range.
Rating amongst the highest performers in the test were the revolutionary Maxi-Cosi Mica Pro Eco, the CabrioFix i-Size and brand hero Pearl 360, which were all awarded four stars. CabrioFix i-Size received four stars when used with both its dedicated base and with seat belt.
This is the fifth time that StiWa has tested the Group 0+/1/2/3 car seat category, and as Maxi-Cosi have been listed amongst the highest performers each time, the team at Dorel Juvenile is extremely proud of this milestone.
The judges were impressed with all of the seats ease of use for parents. The CabrioFix i-Size was voted the safest infant car seat in the Spring 2022 test gaining a full score of five starts for safety and was the winner in the Baby car seat category. Both the Mica Pro Eco and Pearl 360 were winners in the Baby/Toddler car seat category. This honour means that Pebble 360 and Pearl 360 are both test winners from the FamilyFix 360 trio.
Marketing Manager of Maxi-Cosi in the UK and Ireland, Debbie Wakefield said:
“To receive these accolades from an international testing foundation for three of our products is testament to the design and in-house testing of all of our car seats at Maxi-Cosi. We pride ourselves on the standard of our car seats and the safety that they provide as each is tested above and beyond the regulated requirements before it goes to market. These results confirm why we are a market leader in all areas of children’s travel. In the coming months we are excited to introduce more innovative products which raise the bar in safety standards in the UK and beyond.”
ADAC is a part of the Stiftung Warentest foundation that was set-up in 1964 by the German federal parliament to help consumers choose the best product for their needs. They do this by providing impartial and objective information based on the results of comparative investigations of goods and services. To do this, they undertake a consumer’s journey to purchase with a brand and carry out independent lab tests that go above and beyond the regulated safety measures. They then give their verdicts from ‘very good’ to ‘unsatisfactory’ based upon the findings of these tests and finally publish these annually.
