BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size – Test winner

Best Group 1-4 years Safety result in ADAC history

In May 2016 three BeSafe child car seats were tested in the Spring edition of the ADAC/Stiftung Warentest child car seat test 2016. In total 28 car seats were tested, divided into various groups. We are delighted that the BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size was presented as test winner of his group (1-4 years) by ADAC and achieved the unprecedented historic safety score of 1.1.

iZi Kid X2 i-Size – Plus Test approved test winner with 1.1 safety score

The BeSafe iZi Kid X2 i-Size as a purely rear facing child car seat is tested and approved according to the toughest requirements on the market: UN r 129 (i-Size) and the Swedish Plus Test.

Its outstanding safety standards have now been confirmed by ADAC/Stiftung Warentest as well. The iZi Kid X2 i-Size achieved the remarkable safety score of 1.1 which is the best result amongst the 66 seats for children 1-4 years listed in the ADAC archive until and including its test date. This safety score reflects an outstanding crash test performance in both frontal collisions and side impacts.

In addition, the iZi Kid X2 i-Size has been awarded Test Winner by the UK consumer organisation Which?, Danish Tænk and Dutch Consumentenbond.

All three BeSafe seats achieved “Very Good” side impact safety results

Safety has always been BeSafe’s top priority. Just ‘approved’ has never been good enough and over the years we have therefore developed several features to increase safety further.

One example of such safety innovations is SIP+ – an additional side impact protection that reduces load on the child by up to an additional 20%. This in combination with the integrated head support SIP and an inner shell of energy-absorbing material ensures that all BeSafe car seats perform at the top of the ratings in a side impact. All three BeSafe car seats tested in the ADAC/Stiftung Warentest test featured SIP+ and all three BeSafe seats achieved “Very Good” side impact safety scores.

iZi Modular concept achieved top safety results

When the iZi Modular concept was launched in Autumn 2015, not only two car seats were launched but a whole new concept and approach to child safety in cars: one complete solution from birth to approx. 4 years of age.

The concept has been celebrated by both retailers and consumers and is now one of the most popular options in the quality segment of the market.

The BeSafe iZi Go Modular i-Size achieved a “Very Good” safety score in the 2016 ADAC/Stiftung Warentest child car seat test and was consecutively awarded “Best Buy” by the UK consumer organisation Which?.

The iZi Modular i-Size is a combi seat, meaning that it can be installed both rear facing and forward facing. Its excellent safety result of 1.8 in the ADAC/Stiftung Warentest test is especially strong for a combi-seat, as the forward facing crash test result also influences the final safety score. The iZi Modular i-Size seat has also been awarded “highly recommended” by the Swiss testing organisation TCS.

We see the ADAC/Stiftung Warentest test results as real validation of our own high safety standards and demands on our products. However, it is equally important for us that we find safety solutions that work in real-life situations and everyday usage instead of simply in these test laboratory situations only.

We do not do things like everyone else. Some call it different – we call it right.
