How do we test our car seats?
As one of the few car seat manufacturers, we at Maxi-Cosi have our own state-of-the-art car seat crash test facilities in Cholet, France and Columbus, Illinois USA. This allows us to run far more than the minimum crash tests, from an early development to the production phase.
