The Recaro Young Sport / Young Sport Hero are luxury finished seats that that test well on independent crash testing, particularly in side-impact crashes. The seat loses rating points due to the potential confusion of multiple seat routing options at different stages. If the instructions are followed closely, these seats are a solid long-term investment.
The Recaro seats are about to come extremely rare as Recaro, one of the oldest and most established companies producing exceedingly safe car seats, has decided to close their child safety factory.
The Young Sport and Young Sport Hero can be safely used as a forward facing harnessed seat with a 5-point harness up to 18kg or 105cm. We strongly recommend that you NOT use this seat until your child has outgrown a safe infant seat, at 13kg or 75cm. The seat is installed using only the car’s seat belt. Your child is secured with the 5-point harness up to 18kg or 105cm, and with the car’s 3-point seatbelt from 18kg/105cm – 36kg/150cm.
The materials used for the seats are soft and high quality. The Recaro Young Sport seat is particularly narrow, making it ideal for fitting 3 seats across for larger families. The Young Sport Hero harness is designed to prevent the harness belts from slipping or twisting, making buckling in easier.
