Overpriced for a group 1 car seat IMO. You can get many Group 1-2-3 seats that cost less.

I have Britax Evolva 1-2-3 plus - it looks just as good as this one (if not better) - fine for something that safely allows me to transport my kid from A-B. I'm not making a fashion statement.X)

That plus the added bonus it will last him until he's 12.

this is hotukdeals, why put this on
only worth £50.00 the rest of the cost is the name, its a car seat lots of nice looking one out there
Personally if I was going to pay that much for a car seat I'd go for the Maxi Cosi Axiss which is £160 from £210 on Amazon with free delivery. It really depends on how tall your child is though - my eldest is 2.5 and has had her silver cross ventura, a maxi cosi tobi (due to being the only one which would fit a nissan almera tino) and a britax first class, however due to her shoulder height we've now had to go for a 1-2-3 car seat so the straps aren't below her shoulder level. Personally I wouldn't have used a 1-2-3 at a younger age when she used to sleep more in the car as they have limited recline, however we seem to have got through a lot of money on car seats - atleast we don't have to buy another one for a while and our youngest is now using the britax.
For that sort of price you could get a Britax or Maxi Cosi that come top in the Which crash tests, cold from me

According to Which?, the only 1/2/3 cat car seat that is a best buy is the Kiddy Guardian Pro

The Kiddy Guardian Pro is a seat for Groups 1/2/3, and is designed to … The Kiddy Guardian Pro is a seat for Groups 1/2/3, and is designed to carry children from 9kg right up to 36kg (approximaltye one to twelve years-old). It is secured using the adult seat belt, and you use an additional impact cushion for group one (children of 9kg to 18kg, or about one to four years-old). Read the full review and watch the video to find out how it faired in the Which? Child Car Seat tests.This child car seat is a Best Buy. Commonly, if a seat manufacturer tries to cover such a wide weight and age range, the design falls short in at least one area, but Kiddy seems to have really thought it through to make this design work across the range. It makes it a good choice if you have to transport children of different ages at different times.In a side crash protection is very good, while protection in a front crash is acceptable. It's easy to install, very light for a seat in this weight category (and so easy to move between different cars). The padding is good and the seat offers great leg support.We changed the car body we use for testing in 2011, to more accurately reflect the current typical family car seatbelt layout and design. We carried out some repeat testing, to ensure that previous tests shown online are broadly comparable to the current ones. However, such a significant change means we can't make absolute comparisons.This result is from our 2010 tests.Pros: First ever Best Buy seat covering groups 1, 2 and 3, easy to install, great side-crash safety, good padding, high-quality finishCons: Removing the seat cover for cleaning is quite complicated



Unforutnately this doesn't appear to be a very good buy as this is M&Ps worst car seat according to Which? 44% (the isofix version got 56%)

The Mamas & Papas Vito seat is a Group 1 seat, designed for use by … The Mamas & Papas Vito seat is a Group 1 seat, designed for use by children from nine to 18kg (about a year old up to four). It can be secured into the car using the Isofix mounts (with the base) or using the adult seat belt (without the base). The child is secured into the seat using an integral three-point harness. The results varied due to the varied methods of installation. Read the full review to find out how it faired in the Which? Child Car Seat tests.The Isofix base uses a support leg - which means it won't fit in all cars, for example any with under-floor storage compartment access where the leg contacts the floor. Check with the car manufacturer to confirm whether it is suitable before buying the seat.Its 9.8kg weight makes it quite a heavy seat but, combined with its base, the total weight is almost 15kg, so it could be quite awkward if you regularly need to transfer it between cars.These results are for its use with the adult seat belt and no base. Side crash protection is adequate but in a front crash, the child is exposed to relatively high loads.The instructions are quite clear, but buckling the child in the seat is complicated compared with many Best Buy seats. The seat has a high-quality finish, is well padded and offers good leg support. But the child's view out of the car is limited, while removing and cleaning the seat cover is complicated.We changed the car body we use for testing in 2011, to more accurately reflect the current typical family car seatbelt layout and design. We carried out some repeat testing, to ensure that previous tests shown online are broadly comparable to the current ones. However, such a significant change means we can't make absolute comparisons.This result is from our 2010 tests.Pros: Good leg support, high-quality finishCons: Poor front protection, overall performance much poorer in belted mode, child's view is limited, seat cover is hand wash only
