Concord Ultimax.2 is named test winner among Group 0+/1 car seats according to Stiftung Warentest, the ADAC and the ÖAMTC
‘The best for older children in the new test’ – this is the headline used by Stiftung Warentest to describe the Concord Ultimax.2 car seat with ISOFIX. The model was rated as the best in its class, receiving an overall grade of ‘Good’ (2.0) in a joint international test.

The comprehensive test is carried out each year by Stiftung Warentest together with the ADAC and the ÖAMTC and is considered a model and benchmark throughout Europe for the assessment of child safety seats. Seat models of all categories are put to the test, where the criteria range from accident safety, handling and ergonomics to pollutant content, cleaning and processing.

The Ultimax.2 was praised for its easy installation, its adjustable upright and lying positions, the secure and comfortable belt routing, and the good ergonomics of the seat position for young passengers. Furthermore, it is also the most affordable seat in its test category.

Group 0+/1 child safety seats are suitable for children from birth to the age of about five years with a weight of up to 18 kg and a maximum height of 100 cm. As in other product groups, more and more models are also suitable for installation with the ISOFIX mounting system. As a rule, the fixed link between the seat and the vehicle causes a significant drop in load values for crash tests and reduces the risk of car seats being installed incorrectly.
