Porsche-owning mums and dads rejoice!
Porsche has unveiled its new generation of child seats, which it says provide the highest protection for young “co-drivers”.
The new Porsche child seat is available in two variants: Porsche Baby Seat i-Size and Porsche Kid Seat i-Size. They are designed for newborns to four-year-olds.
The Porsche Baby Seat i-Size provides protection for the smallest infants. It can be combined with the Porsche Baby Seat i-Size Flex Base, for easier fitting and raised safety.
It is suitable for babies with a body length of between 40cm and 83cm. The rearward-facing infant carrier can be used up to an age of 15 months and a weight of 13 kilograms.
PORSCHE KID SEAT
Meanwhile, the forward-facing Porsche Kid Seat i-Size is suitable for children with heights from 76cm to 105cm, and aged 15 months to four years. The maximum child weight is 22kg.
The Porsche child seat is secured using the ISOFIX system and the top tether for optimum stability. There are multiple adjustment possibilities for the seat position and shoulder straps.
Both variants of the Porsche child seat borrow styling from the six-point belts used in motorsports. Porsche logos also adorn the harness straps and on the sides of the seats.
Other shared safety features for both seats include a side impact protection that absorbs forces and controls movement in the event of a collision.
The integrated head restraint adjustment helps ensure a seat position that corresponds to the child’s age, as well as the five-point harness system with safety buckle for better support.
A comfort cover is also available for both seats to protect its original cover. It can be washed at 60°C and is made of a breathable and skin-friendly towelling cotton.
