What does “IsoFix” mean?
ISOFIX stands for "International Standards Organisation Fix". New cars that indicate that they have ISOFIX points, have inconspicuous attachment points built into the body shell in standard locations. ISOFIX compatable car seats and bases have latches to lock into these points. This was a very important development for child car safety, as all cars are different, and the chances of not positioning your car seat correctly and securely are great, when using a 3 point seatbelt. Some cars' seat belts are also not be long enough to fit your car seat correctly (Group 0/0+), and this is when an IsoFix base is extremely important.
RECARO manufactures a seat in all weight categories that can attach to the IsoFix points in a vehicle.
