General information on child safety

Volvo has child safety equipment (child seats, booster cushions & attachment devices) which is designed for fitting in this particular car.

Using Volvo's child safety equipment, the optimum conditions are obtained for the child to travel safely in the car. In addition, the child safety equipment fits well and is simple to use.

Children of all ages and sizes must always sit correctly secured in the car. Never allow a child to sit on the knee of a passenger.

Volvo recommends that children travel in rear-facing child seats until as late an age as possible, at least up to 3-4 years of age, and then in front-facing booster cushions/child seats until the child is 140 cm tall.


Legal provisions about the type of child seat that must be used for children of different ages and heights vary from country to country. Check what does apply.


In the event of questions when fitting child safety products, contact the manufacturer for clearer instructions.
