4. BeSafe iZi Go Modular X2 i-Size Car Seat

The BeSafe iZi Go Modular X2 Car Seat has three key features: dynamic force absorber, newborn hugger and a new headrest design.

The dynamic force absorber is a state-of-the-art solution in the head area of the seat’s side wings. It is designed to provide maximum protection for your little one’s head and neck, and is made from special materials formed to create flex zones which absorb forces in a side-impact, through bending of the inner area while the outer area remains rigid – like a kind of trampoline.

The newborn hugger is super soft and features a carefully placed wedge for ultimate stability and support, and an optimised recline angle which is perfect for newborns.

The other key feature, the new headrest, offers support for the smallest and space for the tallest. The headrest area caters for your growing child with more internal space, while keeping them protected. For tiny tots, the back area of the headrest is narrow to keep them secure, as they grow, it opens up to allow the space hey need.

The BeSafe iZi Go Modular X2 i-Size car sea has an ECE R-129- i-Size approval. It is compatible with an ISOFIX base and can be used from birth up until around 12 months.
