MAXI-COSI 2WAYPEARL AWARDED WHICH? BEST BUY
The Maxi-Cosi 2wayPearl – the first i-Size car seat to be introduced to the UK market – has been awarded a Which? Best Buy in the latest testing.
Which? gave the 2wayPearl a minimum of four stars in every category and high scores of five stars, with the car seat achieving an overall score of 75% and, thereby, prestigious Best Buy status.
Which? especially praised the 2wayPearl in regards to safety, ease of use and simplicity to fit.
Rearward facing, the 2wayPearl performed particularly strongly, but it also achieved an impressive four stars for safety when used forward facing (for children over 15 months). When used rearward facing - as required by the new i-Size rules - the seat is one of the safest on the market.
Which? also said that ‘there is very little danger of installing the car seat and base wrongly. The installation is very quick and easy, and this is helped by easy-to-understand instructions and warnings. The base comes with batteries and an audio alarm will sound when the support leg has come loose.’
Andrew Ratcliffe, Managing Director of Maxi-Cosi UK, said: “We are incredibly pleased with these results and delighted with the performance of the 2wayPearl in official testing.
“Maxi-Cosi is very proud of its longstanding reputation as a leading innovator in car seat safety, which is why we worked so hard to support the development of i-Size legislation and to be the first car seat maker to bring the first i-Size compliant car seat – the 2wayPearl – to market.
“We have used our long heritage, knowledge of the market, unrivalled understanding of safety issues and dedication to innovation to create a groundbreaking car seat that delivers excellent safety performance but is easy for parents to use.
“Ultimately, that is what i-Size and the 2wayPearl are all about: safety and ease-of-use to ensure correct fitting.”
The 2wayPearl is used with the new 2wayFix Base and allows rear-facing travel from approximately six months up to four-years-old. The 2way Fix Base also makes fitting much easier, avoiding the potential for incorrect installation.
