Brush up on your knowledge of the i-Size rules and regulations, and discover the designs leading the way in safer travel
I-Size is the European-wide standard for car seats, which came into force in 2015, making rear-facing travel mandatory for children up to the age of 15 months. When buying an i-Size seat, the child’s height is used to determine if the seat fits the child, rather than their weight.
You can only use an i-Size seat if your car has Isofix connectors. Isofix is the alternative to securing your car seat with seat belts – instead, the car seat is secured by two attachments at the base of the car seat and embedded within the vehicle seat structure, usually combined with a third anti-rotational device.
I-Size car seats fit all i-Size-certified cars and almost all cars with Isofix, but it’s worth checking with your car manufacturer beforehand.
