Group 1 2 3 ISO FIX car seat. Lowest ever price on amazon. These normally retail at between £200-£250.

This is currently out of stock and awaiting delivery so you may have to wait for this bargain.

This is forwards facing but it has won numerous safety awards including Which.

You can currently use this from 9 months to 11 years so represents good value for money. Note that at some point in the future babies will have to be rear facing until 15 months... however you will get some really good use out of the remaining 10 odd years.

The blurb...

Double Safety

As a 2-in-1 car seat, the Pallas 2-fix can be used for more than 11 years, making it a great investment. According to the German Stiftung Warentest, it is one of the best car seats that grow with the child in Group 1/2/3. The British consumer group, WHICH?, rated its safety performance in accidents as excellent throughout the entire lifespan. When in Group 1 mode, the Pallas 2-fix boasts an adjustable safety cushion which resembles an inflated airbag, reducing the risk of serious neck injuries in the event of a head-on collision without confining the child. For children aged approx. 3 and above, a simple conversion turns the seat into the award-winning Group 2/3 car seat Solution X2-fix. New side protectors absorb the impact energy at a very early stage providing an innovative side impact protection. The ISOFIX Connect System offers enhanced safety and greater stability in both groups. The seat is also compatible with cars not being equipped with the ISOFIX system. The patented reclining headrest rounds off the impressive array of safety features.
Adjustable Safety Cushion

The adjustable safety cushion reduces the risk of serious neck injuries without confining the child (patent pending). The force of a head-on collision is distributed over the safety cushion and absorbed by its impact-absorbing materials since this system resembles an inflated airbag, which helps to significantly reduce the force of impact in the event of an accident. The harness safeguards the child, while at the same time the sensitive head, neck shoulders and inner organs are protected. The newly designed adjustable safety cushion (patent pending) adjusts for the highest level of comfort and is perfectly tailored to the child's body. It offers more freedom of movement of the upper body as well as maximum safety especially in frontal impacts when compared to conventional five-point harness systems.
3-Position Reclining Headrest

The Cybex patented 3-position reclining headrest guarantees optimal protection in the case of a side-impact. This revolutionary technology safely shifts the balance point of the child's head slightly back and prevents it from falling forward when the child is asleep. In the case of a side-impact collision, the child's sensitive head remains within the safety zone of the seat, ensuring optimal protection. Furthermore, our patented 3-position headrest offers a more comfortable sleeping position for a safe and peaceful journey.

would steer well clear of "safety cushion" type chairs personally....

Why? We had similar and they had excellent safety rating, we were very happy with them

Although I highly rate the safety credentials of the cushion systems I find that children do not take to them very well and that the child is uncomfortable during summer/hot weather!

I only bought this seat yesterday, after reading the which? reviews. I feel it's the best car seat I could have bought for my little escape artist!

Does this seat have hydraulics?

Britax obviously have a vested interest but this article is worth a read:

babyworld.co.uk/201…ms/

For balance, the rebuttal by Kiddie:

kiddy.de/blo…er/

And finally, I think this is partly what Britax refer to.... (WARNING, don't watch if you have a "cushion" style seat and don't want to see something quite shocking....

youtube.com/wat…TKk

In conclusion I would say that "rollover" crashes are quite unlikely in modern cars, but they do happen and its scary seeing what could happen. Kiddie rightly say that frontal impacts are the most common type of crash and the best way to protect against those is by going Extended Rear Facing (ERF) which is what I did for my little'un.

A seat that provides extra safety to head, neck and chest areas is in my (limited) mind more important in terms of child safety.Either way you pay your money and take your chances.For balance, the rebuttal by Kiddie:http://www.kiddy.de/blog/uk/2013/03/impact-shield-v-harness-which-is-safer/And finally, I think this is partly what Britax refer to....

i believe another potential problem with shield seats is that the crash test dummies aren't designed to test damage to the abdominal area... there's a theory that major internal injury could be caused in the event of a frontal impact impact when LOs body is flung into one of these. These seats haven't been involved in enough real life crashes for this theory to be tested though.

And let's not forget to mention the injuries that seat belts can cause

Good to see a lot of experts here in HUKD than the professional bodies in UK and EU.
