Recaro Monza Nova Evo awarded ‘good’ rating by Stiftung Warentest and ADAC

In the latest child seat product testing by Stiftung Warentest and ADAC, the Recaro Monza Nova Evo Seatfix and Monza Nova Evo were each awarded a ‘good’ rating. Both are ECE Group 2–3 seats that can be adjusted as the child grows, making them suitable for those weighing 15 to 36 kg (approx. three to twelve years old).

The June 2018 issue of test magazine featured an evaluation of 23 individual car safety seats for children from newborn up to 36 kg in weight and up to 150 cm in height; the ratings criteria covered accident safety, ease of operation, ergonomics and lack of pollutants. Both the Recaro Monza Nova Evo Seatfix and the Monza Nova Evo were awarded a ‘good’ rating.

The Recaro Monza Nova Evo Seatfix is particularly suitable as a secondary car safety seat that can be adjusted as the child grows, for those aged three to twelve. Maximum security is provided by its Advanced Side Protection, which considerably reduces the force of a side impact collision. Its specially designed Air Circulation System maintains a pleasant seating climate even on hot days. Furthermore, integrated Seatfix connectors ensure a perfectly solid installation inside the vehicle. Compared to the Recaro Monza Nova 2 Seatfix, this new model does away with integrated speakers and air cushions in the headrest. That makes it a more economical alternative, so that even more parents can enjoy the benefits of the Monza Nova series. In short, this child seat offers an intelligently balanced package that combines easy operation, comfort and safety—thus focussing on what really counts. It is also available without the Seatfix connector.

According to the Stiftung Warentest evaluation, the Recaro Monza Nova Evo Seatfix scored particularly well in terms of pollutants testing, where it achieved a perfect score with a 1.0 grade. The Monza Nova Evo was likewise rated ‘very good’ in terms of freedom from pollutants. Its ease of operation was also rated positively, with a 1.6 grade putting it at the top end of the ‘good’ range. Beyond that, both child seats were also ‘good’ in terms of accident safety and ergonomics.
