Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Checklist

Country-specific standards for child seats (selection)

The child seats must correspond to the standard ECE-R 441). Further information is available from Volkswagen dealerships or on the Internet at www.volkswagen.com.

Group classification for child seats according to ECE-R 44

Weight class Child's weight Age
Group 0 up to 10 kg up to approx. 9 months
Group 0+ up to 13 kg up to approx. 18 months
Group 1 9 to 18 kg approx. 8 months to 31/2 years
Group 2 15 to 25 kg approx. 3 to 7 years

Not every child will fit in the seat specified for their weight group. Likewise, not every seat will fit in every vehicle. Therefore, always check whether the child fits correctly in the child seat and whether the seat is securely attached in the vehicle.

Child seats that have been tested and approved in accordance with the ECE R 44 standard bear the test mark on the seat: a large letter E in a circle with the test number below it.

WARNING

Ignoring any of the items on this important safety checklist can lead to accidents and injuries.
