Summary: Had a good look around and it is was a choice between this and Cybex Pallas M fix. This is over £100 cheaper and has a really good Which rating. I am so glad I chose this seat. My boy loves it and it has longevity. It is robust and really good quality. It has isofix points and can be used without isofix so it is very versatile. Note that the English instructions are under the seat though.
Summary: Durable & sturdy product that comes apart for cleaning & material can be washed at 30 degrees. Unlike most seats it firmly fits to the car via isofix (without a separate base). This means there is less chance of badly fitting it or it moving in an accident. If you intend to use the front guard it is imperative that your child is seated correctly before you fit it & it is tightly secured by the seat belt. Otherwise it can be manipulated by its occupant to slouch or slide.

Summary: My son enjoys sitting in the Recaro Monza Nova IS and quickly got used to the bar across his middle - he uses it as a rest for his toys. It was not easy to fit in our car (which has 'sports seats' in the back) but once it was in (using ISOFIX) it is relatively easy use. The speakers in the headrest is a nice (if slightly unnecessary) touch! - but at least it means we can listen to our own music in the front.
Summary: If I had the option, this would be 4.5 star rating. Very lightweight compared to our previous seat and easy to install. For those used to a four point harness, it takes a few seconds longer to secure your child, but this is a small penalty. Our child is 2.5 years, and fortunately took to the impact cushion quite happily. I'd go as far as saying he actually likes it more than his previous 4 point harness.
Summary: Arms do have to sit up on top of the waist pad, but my son never complains about this. He can however pull on it which moves it out of position, although I don't see that this is a safety issue.
Summary: Bought this on the Which recommend best buys I was not disappointed. Fits into my Picasso MPV like a glove, easy to install and remove, my granddaughter Florence loves it. Although it's very expensive what price do you put on car safety and comfort for your precious little one. I was fortunately able to buy this from Amazon when it was on offer so got it for £178.00 and not the original price.
