Car seat safety is of ultimate importance to us as parents, and 2017
will see the release of several new car seats to the market.
Britax Römer DUALFIX i-Size
The much loved rotating DUALFIX seat has been upgraded for 2017 and is now i-Size approved. Maintaining all of the features parents loved about the DUALFIX, the DUALFIX i-Size now benefits from Side Impact Protection and easy peasy ISOfix installation. The DUALFIX i-Size is expected to hit the shops in Spring 2017.
An i-Size infant carrier from the affordable baby brand Joie. The i-Level is an infant car seat with lie flat capabilities in its adjustable seat unit. The i-Level is expected to be released in Spring 2017.
Diono Radius i-Size
Another new i-Size infant carrier to join us in early 2017 is the Radius i-Size, which sits on its very own smart ISOfix base. The base offers multiple recline positions which automatically adjusts to the safest and most upright in the event of an impact - pretty impressive! Technology doesn't stop there as it also has an accident indicator to let you know if it needs replacing after a collision.
Concord Ultimax i-Size
Available late 2016/early 2017, the Ultimax i-Size can be used in both forward-facing and rear-facing positions from birth. This seat is sure to be a great option for parents looking for one seat that will see them all the way through until their child is 4 years old.
The first high back booster seat from Nuna, the Aace grows with your child in height and width from 15kg all the way up to 36kg. This clever seat also has an adjustable seat depth to make sure your child is 100% comfortable. The seat has all important side impact protection, ISOfix fitting and also comes with a cup holder. The Aace will be available in early 2017.
An i-Size seat that will see baby from birth all the way up to 105cm (around 4 years old), the Vaya can be used in the rearward or forward facing position. We've no doubt in our minds that the Vaya will be popular as not only is it super safe but it also features a great 360 degree swivel. The Vaya is expected to hit the shops mid to late 2017.
Suitable from birth to four years old, the Artemis can be used in the safest rearward and also the forward facing position. Coming as a complete package with an ISOfix base and a newborn insert, the Kiddy Artemis will join Kiddy's already highly thought of range of car seats. The Artemis is expected to be released in mid 2017.
Graco Snugride i-Size
An infant car seat with a difference, this new release from Graco will accommodate your baby all the way up to 20kg! This larger than average infant carrier will be a great option for parents who want their infant carrier to last as long as possible. The Snugride will be released in early 2017.
Diono Radian Max
The Diono Radian 5 seat was released in 2016 and really impressed parent. The Radian Max won't be arriving until late 2017 but when it does it promises to be an exciting arrival as it is suitable from birth all the way up to 12 years old - something that we don't see in a car seat very often! This rear and forward facing seat is definitely one to look out for in 2017.
Cybex Aton Q i-Size
The popular Aton Q seat from Cybex has had an i-Size makeover in the form of this new seat. You can pre-order the seat now and its release date is January 2017. The addition of side impact protection and an ISOfix base will make this seat really appealing to parents.
