Which best buy car seats

I'd be grateful if someone could copy and paste the latest Which Best Buy table for car seats please. I'm trying to buy a toddler seat and it'd be great to know what's considered to be safe currently. Thanks so much.

I would call the In Car Safety Centre rather than rely on Which, tbh.

Thanks Stargirl. I'd just like a list to start my research and to get a feel for pricing.

I just don't rate Which at all for car seats.

Have you browsed this website?

I tend to agree with Stargirl that which in my opinion are woefully inadequate on rear facing for example and some of their don't buys actually score really highly in crash test results but are marked lower for things that might not affect you. Example newborn insert means harness isn't tight enough on one don't buy but extremely good crash test results so kind of irrelevant if you were buying the seat for an older child. But here it us anyway.

My 3 year old is rear facing in a Which? 'Don't Buy' seat! I'll use that seat (Britax Multi Tech II, Which? have tested it as the Volvo Convertible) over one of their forward facing 'Best Buys' any day!
