Chosing a family car

If you are thinking about buying a new car for the family, you should examine closely all the safety information relating to the model of car you’re thinking of buying.

One source of this kind of information is Euro NCAP (New Car Assessment Programme). It will give you a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe.

Information can be found at:

Some people don’t know if they have ISOFIX connectors in their car. You should ask about these, as sometimes these are not labelled or visible at first glance.

You should also be aware of where the airbags are in the car and how they are controlled. Remember, it is illegal to place a rearward-facing child car seat in the front of the car where there is an active airbag.

You should also consult your car manual to find out areas of the car are suitable for fitting child car seats. For example, you may not be able to fit ISOFIX seats in places where there are underfloor storage boxes. Also, some back seats do not allow a child car seat to be fitted in the middle.
