Sirona Q i-Size Rear-Facing Car Seat
Safely rear-facing from 45 cm up to 105 cm in height
The new CYBEX Sirona Q i-Size complies with the new European requirements and regulations for car seats ECE R-129. This new "i-Size regulation" states that children aged 15 months and under must travel in a rear-facing infant car seat, which is seen as the safest mode of transport by many experts, including consumer and health organisation such as the ADAC and the German independent consumer testing organisation Stiftung Warentest.
- Safely rearward facing up to 105 cm (approx. 4 years)
- 360°rotation with easy entry position
- One-click installation with ISOFIX
- Telescopic Linear Side-impact Protection (L.S.P. System)
- Front-facing with adjustable Impact Shield
- Newborn inlay included
When using the CYBEX Sirona Q i-Size, the child can be transported in a rear-facing position from 45 cm until they reach 105 cm in height (approx. 4 years). The new, intelligent design means that even taller kids have plenty of leg room to sit comfortably. But it doesn't take up too much space either – the Sirona Q i-Size can be easily installed in smaller cars. Additional features such as the one-hand reclining function provide extra convenience and make everyday use easier.
Easy entry & exit position
A clever 360° rotation system makes life easier and less back-breaking for parents.
The clever rotation mechanism makes it easy to change between the rear-facing and forward-facing positions without having to take the seat out. Getting in and out is also easy as the seat can be turned to the side facing the door with one hand.
One-click installation with isofix
For both rear and forward facing position
A one-click installation with ISOFIX both in rear- and forward-facing position allows for simple installation and guarantees increased safety.
Sirona Q i-Size is secured using the car's ISOFIX system and requires no further fastening. A prop at the front helps to absorb the force of impact in case of a head-on collision and provides additional stability. This anchoring technology minimizes installation mistakes and optimizes the protective effect.
Direct link between car and seat
The innovative Seat-to-Chassis technology creates a direct link between the seat and the chassis.
In case of an accident, the force of an impact is transferred straight to the chassis, which simultaneously activates the safety features of the car and the seat and thereby initiates the process of distributing the force at the earliest possible stage of an accident. Patent pending.
Telescopic L.S.P. System
Linear Side-impact Protection
The telescopic linear side-impact protection (L.S.P. System) absorbs the force of a side-impact collision at a very early stage (patent pending).
Whether rear- or forward-facing, the CYBEX Sirona Q i-Size's adjustable Linear Side-impact Protection system (L.S.P.) increases the level of safety in case of a side-impact collision. The L.S.P. system can be individually adjusted to the position of the seat and the type of vehicle and absorbs the force of a side-impact collision in combination with the head and shoulder protectors (patent pending).
Alternative - forward facing
For children from min. 16 months and 76 cm up to 105 cm, approx. 4 years
Depending on their shape and size, older children may have insufficient legroom when sitting backwards.
Depending on your preference, the Sirona Q i-Size can also be used as a forward-facing car seat for children who are 16 months and 76 cm and above (up to 105 cm).
The first i-Size Car seat with adjustable impact shield
Safety without confinement
The adjustable impact shield with A.R.T. Technology cleverly reduces the risk of serious neck injuries without confining the child. Thanks to the integrated fastening system, there is no longer the need to fasten the impact shield separately.
In the forward-facing position, the child is protected by an adjustable impact shield. This system works like an inflated airbag, which absorbs the energy of impact over its entire area. Compared to a conventional 5-point harness, the strain on the neck is significantly reduced. What is more, in case of an accident, the impact shield's new Active Response Technology (A.R.T.) ensures that the child is intuitively secured within the safety zone of the seat (patent pending). Thanks to the new integrated fastening system, it is also unnecessary to fasten the impact shield with the car seatbelt (patent pending).

Is this the right seat for my car?
We extensively test the suitability for all our products in all the latest vehicle models. Should your vehicle not appear please contact our customer service team for further assistance. We always recommend that you do a test installation at a qualified retailer to confirm individual compatibility. You should especially check that your vehicle model has ISOFIX anchorage points (US: LATCH ) and the length of the vehicle seat belt as this may vary, even during the same production year of manufacture.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
- How long should the newborn inlay be used?
The newborn inlay should be used up to a maximum height of 60cm (corresponding to approximately 3 months). As soon as the baby cannot be secured comfortably with the harness system anymore, the inlay should be removed.
- When is a child too big for the CYBEX Sirona Q i-Size?
The CYBEX Sirona Q i-Size can be used by children up to a maximum height of 105 cm (maximum body weight: 18 kg). Depending on the child’s height, this corresponds to approximately four years of age.
- When can I start using the Sirona Q i-Size in a forward-facing position?
Once your child has reached 16 months of age and height of 76 cm, the Sirona Q i-Size can also be used in a forward-facing position. This is not, however, mandatory. We recommend that children travel in a rear-facing position for as long as possible.
- Can I use the Sirona Q i-Size without the newborn inlay even for a young baby?
No. The newborn inlay is specifically designed for premature babies and very small newborns and needs to be used from 45 to 60cm. Its purpose is to reduce the size of the seat to ensure these infants receive the best possible protection.
- Why can’t I rotate the seat by a full 360°?
The sophisticated 360° rotating mechanism makes it easy to switch from a rear-facing to the forward-facing position - there is no need to remove and re-install the seat which can be an awkward task and cause back strain. Additionally, this mechanism allows the seat to be turned towards the door, making it easy to take the child in and out of the seat. In concrete terms, this means that the seat can be rotated to the left or right to face the door and can also be used either in a forward- or rear-facing position.
- How can I convert the Sirona Q i-Size into a forward-facing seat?
We recommend using the Sirona Q i-Size in a rear-facing position for as long as possible to provide the highest level of safety. As soon as your child no longer has enough legroom in a rear-facing position, the seat can be used together with the impact shield in a forward-facing position. To do so, the harness first has to be tucked away in the seat so that the latter can be released. Subsequently, the seat can simply be rotated and your child can be secured with the impact shield. For further details on converting the seat, please refer to the instructions.
- Can I also use the Sirona Q i-Size in a car without Isofix anchorage points?
The Sirona Q i-Size is an ISOFIX-only seat and can only be installed in vehicles with ISOFIX anchorage points.
- What do I have to bear in mind when installing the Sirona Q i-Size in my vehicle?
The One-Click ISOFIX system makes it easy to install the seat in either a forward- or a rear-facing position and guarantees increased levels of safety. The integrated supporting leg provides additional stability and absorbs the forces released in a head-on collision. The Sirona Q i-Size can only be installed using the ISOFIX connectors.
- What kind of clothing should my child wear when seated in the car seat?
Thick clothing prevents the harness from lying snugly against the body. This incorrect belt positioning could result in the harness slipping off the shoulder. For this reason, your child should wear everyday clothing. Thick clothing such as winter jackets should be avoided where possible. Once your child has been positioned in the seat, he/she can be covered with an extra blanket for warmth.
- Can I use this seat on a flight?
No, this seat is not approved for use on an airplane.
- Why only rearward-facing until 15 months and not for 4 years in total?
The head of a young child is large and heavy in proportion to the rest of their body and their neck is relatively weak. A rear-facing child restraint supports the head and neck and is thought, therefore, to reduce the risk of neck injury. Although this remains a topic for research, European regulators are satisfied that by 15 months, the neck has developed enough strength to withstand the forces in a typical crash. For this reason, 15 months was set as the minimum age for rear-facing. However, many R129 child restraints are approved for longer rear-facing use, for example, by children up to 105 cm (around 4 years).
- Is my child allowed to rest his/her legs on the rebound bar?
Relatively tall infants may rest their legs on the rebound bar. Bending the legs at the knee does not affect safety in any way. As long as the child has sufficient legroom we recommend using the seat in a rear-facing position, which exposes the child to less force in the event of a collision.
- Do both LSPs have to be extended for safety reasons?
To provide the best possible protection, the telescopic L.S.P. protector nearest the door should be extended as far as possible. It is designed with two settings. If in the longest setting, the L.S.P. touches the vehicle door, then the first setting must be used instead. When the seat is installed in the middle seat, the linear side-impact protection (L.S.P. System) should not be pulled out.
- Can I use the seat and the base when the side airbag is activated?
Yes, side airbags may remain activated when using the baby seat.
- Is it ok to keep using a seat after an accident?
We at CYBEX strongly recommend that you replace a seat after any kind of accident. This is because tiny hairline cracks, which may not be visible to the naked eye, can appear in the plastic parts of a seat after an accident. These cracks can pose an increased risk to safety.
- My car seat is faulty, how can I get it repaired?
Please refer to the retailer where you bought your CYBEX seat. They will deal with the matter on your behalf.
- Where can I get replacement parts for my product?
You can order replacement parts from a specialist retailer near you. To find a store near you, simply go to the store locator on our website: http://cybex-online.com/de/retailer.html
