It doesn't rear face at all.
We have a couple of these. Makes getting the kids in the car a somewhat easier experience. Gets a reasonably good verdict from Which. One thing which I've never been able to do is get both straps adjusted to the same length though, bizarre.
We had a swivel seat - so much easier.
Hi, No it isn't one of the best seats as it only rear faces to 2 years old and continued rear facing your child after this time is much safer than forward facing. There are extended rear facing seats up to 25 kg available which will last your child a bit longer especially if they are bigger than average. Unfortunately there are no swivel seats in this 25 kg category. My daughter at 22 months is in an Axkid minikid as she is v tall and wouldn't last anywhere near 4 years old in an 18kg seat as would outgrow by height. Our car seat is fine for accessing even without a swivel function. See this list for all ERF car seats available csftl.org/european-car-seats-25-kg-weight-limit-seats/
