COMMENTS

The CRSs used for the Q3 dummy were JSS Midi, offered by VW under part number 3118897BVL-AA and for the Q1.5 the Britax Roemer Baby safe + ISOFIX base offered under part number 3118899P15-AA/5G0.019.907.A”. The child seats for both child dummies were installed rearward facing using ISOFIX anchorages and support leg. Both were capable of preventing head exposure during forward movement offering full protection to both child occupants. Side impact protection was good, achieving full score in side impact protection. All tested CRSs in installation pass. Marking was according to Latin NCAP requirements however only for ISOFIX and not an I-Size marking. Airbag warning when a rearward CRS is installed in the passenger seat was permanently attached to the surface and according to Latin NCAP requirements. Passenger airbag could be disconnected in the case that a rearward facing CRS is installed in the front passenger seat. All of the above explains the 89.8% of points matching a level of 5 stars.
