According to the owners, despite the fact that the instructions for the car seat says that it is designed for children weighing up to 13 kg, in fact it is not very roomy, and children from this model grow very quickly. However, given the rather modest price, many people turn a blind eye to this fact.
When choosing a Concord car seat, it is necessary to take into account the weight and height of the child, as well as to prioritize: either change models regularly as soon as the child grows out of the next category, or buy a model that will be relevant for several years. For example, the universal car seat Concord Ultimax belongs to the group 0 + / 1, that is, it can be used from birth to one year and from year to three.
