Which car seat is best for older kids?

Silver Cross Navigator


In a Nutshell
Don’t get seduced into buying a seat purely because it has your child’s favourite character on it. This luxurious high-back booster strikes the ideal compromise between safety and comfort.

Practicality
The original Navigator performed well in crash-tests and this new version offers ISOFix mounts – as opposed to being secured with just a seatbelt – which keep it securely in place at all times.

Comfort
Press your hand into the fabric of any booster seat and you’ll swiftly appreciate why this Silver Cross is worth the money, even though it has a little less lumber padding than its predecessor.

Wow Factor
You can recline a child, even while they are asleep, simply by rotating a knob on the front of its base. This will also adjust the lower seat-cushion to accommodate growing legs.

Nit-picking
The Navigator comes in any colour you like, as long as it’s jet black! Its cover is hand-wash only and – like
most boosters – the head support is wide for little ones.

Also consider
Jané Racing Momo Plus £170, Jane.es
Try this collaboration between Jané and Italian racing-design firm Momo. It has ISOFix – and the red version will turn heads.
