www.crep.com.au This is where the various automobile organisations get their info from. I like this website as it also shows the other names the seat is known by and the seats rating in other modes.
I would go babylove easy combo - it actually rates better than the maxi rider.
Or a infa secure roamer plus/comfi cruiser etc. This also rates well. I have the roamer plus in DH's car for DS and have been happy with it. His head does fall forward on long journey's which we do often but we don't often use this seat.
We have the BabyLove Ezy Combo in DH's car and it is great. Much cheaper than the Maxi Rider (I got it on sale for $130) and as PP have said, rates better.
Does anyone know when the new CREP ratings come out?
It is my understanding when the height based system came in the carseats themselves did not change apart from two pieces of tape that indicates height requirements.
Obviously not all carseats are tested and new ones are often being released. The CREP website is however a good starting point as it also offers dimensions of seats and is very simple to compare.
In recent years the results have been released in March. One year it was delayed however. Now they have their own website it will be a lot easier. I hope they test the maxi-cosi seats.
