i-Size child seats
i-Size child seats have two latches that are anchored to the two rings A.
These i-Size child seats also have:
- either an upper strap that is attached to ring B.
- or a support leg that rests on the vehicle floor, compatible with the approved i-Size seat position.
Their role is to prevent the child seat from tipping forward in the event of a collision.
For more information on the ISOFIX mountings, refer to the corresponding section.
Locations for i-Size child seats
In accordance with the new European regulations, this table indicates the options for installing i-Size child seats on seats in the vehicle fitted with i-Size
approved ISOFIX mountings.
