Summary

If you’re new to child car-seats or are still not entirely sure what these regulations mean, you can check out a complete and in depth breakdown here.

Product Features and Accessories

Seat

The seat itself boasts a number of features aimed at ease of use, such as it’s one hand recline system that offers 5 positions when rearward facing and 3 when frontward. This allows seamless and simple adjustment to the seat as you find the perfect travelling angle. Adjusting the straps happens from the same area by pressing your thumb onto the release switch inside the strap hole that can be found just above where you grab for the one hand recline.

Suitability

The Cybex Sirona grows with your child, rearward facing up to 105cm tall (approx. 4 years) with a frontward facing option once your child reaches 76cm, (approx. 16 months) You can easily achieve this with the use of “click in” system. Furthermore the headrest can be adjusted to 12 different heights and it’s clever design maximises leg-room without sacrificing car space reducing your child’s discomfort as they grow. The Sirona reaches a total weight of around 14KG.

Protection

Above all, a child seat should be safe and you can be sure Cybex made this a priority with the M i-Size. The extended supporting arm reaches down into the footwell securing the seat and adding extra stability to the child’s journey.

It’s also fitted with an LSP system or Linear Side Impact Protection system that spreads out any force from a side on collision maximising safety for your child. These fold out from the main seat shell towards the door and clip back in when not in use.

To add further peace of mind the shell of the seat is energy absorbing and fits comfortable around your child offering further protection.

Installation

The Sirona M i-Size Car Seat requires ISOfix points in your vehicle for installation so it’s best to check your car’s compatibility before deciding to purchase.

To secure the seat to your vehicle you need to press two buttons either side near the bottom of the seat and slide out the extending ISOfix arms. These extending arms ‘grab on’ to the ISOfix points of your car toggling green to show.
