The test results of the ADAC car seats (German Allgemeiner Deutsher Automobil-Club) were published as usual in May. As every year, the seats were tested in terms of safety, ergonomics, ease of use, harmful substances and ease of keeping clean. The ADAC test is quite restrictive, which is why its results are expected by consumers every year, and the tests themselves are respected in the world, and in particular in many European countries.
Car seats for tests are bought independently in different stores, to avoid the situation where the car seats other than those available on the market would go to the test. Therefore, the producers themselves are not sure whether their seats are tested. The ADAC Institute usually selects new products for the tests, or the most innovative car seats. The ADAC test is a set of various tests that allow you to assess the seat in terms of all the criteria taken into consideration. The tests include crash tests (side and front), static tests and chemical analysis of the composition of the materials used to make the seat. Car seats that participate in ADAC tests are divided into weight and growth categories. The overall assessment of the seat is the sum of the ratings of individual criteria. The most important indicator is, of course, the safety assessment and it affects 50% of the overall assessment of the seat. The car seat itself is 40% rated, while ergonomics is 10% of the final grade. The content of harmful substances may affect the overall assessment.
For Avionaut, four stars in the ADAC tests are yet another confirmation of the highest quality and safety of the product, which, like other car seats and bases, are manufactured fully in Europe. This is not the first distinction of the Avionaut Pixel seat.
