On the Road to Success

AWARDS FOR RECARO

RECARO stands for FEEL PERFORMANCE among its customers, partners, and staff. Each and every year, we manage to win over national and international juries. A selection of awards can be found on this page. For us, these awards are not an end in themselves, but rather a seal of quality for our work from the relevant juries and end users, and thus a recognition of our achievements.

 

The awards are extremely diverse, including not only ones for product and design, but also awards in the fields of quality and innovation. This reflects our comprehensive and demanding approach to Ingenious Design, Quality, and Safety, not only in terms of our products, but also our services.

Plus X Award for the Recaro Guardia

The RECARO Guardia convinces with high quality and ease of use. Especially when it comes to quality, the seat profits from our long-term experience in the automotive industry. Thanks to the space between the handle and the sunroof, the Guardia is easy to carry. The integrated five-point safety belt is equipped with the so-called HERO technology. It prevents the belts from twisting, secures the ideal seating position of the child in the Guardia and makes buckling up easier for the parents.

Stiftung Warentest commends three child seats from Recaro Child Safety

The RECARO Guardia, the current top model among Recaro infant carriers, was awarded the grade “good” (1.8). Weighing only 3.9 kilograms (8.6 lbs.), it is one of the lightest in its class. Maximum safety is assured, among other things, by its patented Hero belt system, which prevents belts from slipping or twisting. The experts at Recaro Child Safety also put great emphasis on ergonomics in the carrier’s design. For newborns, there is an additional inlay cushion that allows the child to be placed in a lying position, which is easier on the back.

Stiftung Warentest also examined the world premiere RECARO Zero.1 Elite (i-Size) and awarded it the grade of “good” (2.5). With this rear-facing seat, Recaro Child Safety has introduced a world first that combines two products in one. The combination of infant carrier and child seat may already be used from birth up to a height of 105 centimeters. The 360° rotating function of the seat plays a central role: with only a single hand motion it can be rotated towards the vehicle door so that the child can be comfortably placed in the vehicle or removed from it with the infant carrier.
