Table for location of ISOFIX child seats

The table gives a recommendation for which ISOFIX child seats suit which locations, and for what size of child.

The child seat must be approved in accordance with UN Reg R44 and the car model must be included in the manufacturer's vehicle list.


Always read the owner's manual section on installing a child seat before installing one in the car.

IL: Suitable for particular ISOFIX child restraint systems. These child restraint systems are those of the specific vehicle, restricted or semi-universal categories.

IUF: Suitable for ISOFIX forward child restraint systems of universal category approved for use in the mass group.

X: Not suitable for ISOFIX child restraint systems.


Never use a rear-facing child seat on the front passenger seat if the passenger airbag is activated.


If an i-Size/ISOFIX child seat has no size classification, the car model must be included on the vehicle list for the child seat.


Volvo recommends contacting an authorised Volvo dealer for information about which i-Size/ISOFIX child seats Volvo recommends.
  1. 1 For child seats with the ISOFIX fixture system there is a size classification to help users choose the right type of child seat. The size class can be read on the child seat's label.
  2. 2 Works for the installation of ISOFIX child seats that are semi-universally approved (IL) if the car is equipped with the ISOFIX console accessory (the accessory range varies depending on market). There are no upper mounting points for child seats here.
  3. 3 The seat cushion extension must always be retracted for the installation of child seats.
  4. 4 Volvo recommends: Volvo infant seat secured using the ISOFIX fixture system (type approval E1 000008).
  5. 5 Applicable if the car is not fitted with an ISOFIX bracket.
  6. 6 Adjust the backrest so that the head restraint does not interfere with the child seat.
  7. 7 Volvo recommends rear-facing child seat for children in this mass group.
