Why choose a rearward-facing car seat?
A rearward-facing car seat provides maximum safety and protection for your child. Safety organisations recommend keeping babies and younger children in a rear-facing car seat for as long as possible, to reduce the risk of injuries in a crash.
In a frontal crash (the most common type of incident) a rear-facing seat pulls the child into the impact, supporting the head and back and limiting the movement of the head on the neck.

One of the most difficult decisions regarding car seats is knowing when to move your child from a rearward- to a forward-facing position. The hauck Varioguard, when used with IsoFix anchor points, can be used as a rearward-facing car seat for children up to 18 kg, approximately 4 years old, providing extra protection for your child for longer, and it can easily be changed to a forward facing car seat when you are ready.
For newborn babies, there is a removable padded insert in the seat which provides extra support in the head area and ensures your baby is sitting in the correct position. The car seat also has 5 recline positions for the perfect support. As your child grows the insert can be removed, and head protection area is height-adjustable (7 positions).
When used with a 3-point seatbelt, the Varioguard can be used as a forward-facing car seat for children up to 13 kg, approximately 18 months old, and then as a forward-facing car seat for children up to 18Kg.
