Statistics from Sweden
Reward facing Group 1 seats
Statistics show that in markets with rearward facing Gr. 1 seats (e.g. Sweden), the injury rate in Group 1 remains stable compared to rear-facing group 0+. In comparison, injuries sky-rocket in Germany where front facing seats with harness system are most common in Group 1.
This is why leading consumer and health organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Europe’s biggest automobile club the German ADAC, German independent testing institute Stiftung Warentest, Germany’s biggest car magazine Autobild, the Austrian and Swiss automobile clubs ÖAMTC and TCS, Sweden’s largest insurance company Folksam and many other organizations recommend to keep children in rear-facing child seats beyond Group 0+.
