Chicco Oasys 1 Group 1 car seat

With ISOFIX fittings and a top tether for added security, this car seat also has a ‘double-check’ fitting system to ensure correct, safe installation.

The seat is deep with high sides, and the seat structure, fabrics and padding are perforated for breathability, so your child shouldn’t get hot and sweaty.


The handy front recline button has five different settings, which is ideal if your child regularly nods off in the car.

Both the headrest and harness can also be adjusted by button.

It’s easy to install by following the seat label instructions but at 14kg it is double the weight of other models we tested, so not good for switching between cars.

Tester Nadine-Johanna Stewart, from London, mum to Max (13 months), said:

“Very sturdy, with a deep, comfortable seat and well-padded straps. Great quality. Height is easily adjusted, but I found it difficult to install – it took two adults.”

Tester Rabab Kane, from Co. Antrim, mum to Patrice, 9, Alesha, 6, Matthew, 5, and Sophia, 2¾, said:

“The only car seat straps that Sophia can’t undo! Super head support and lovely material. My favourite, but I found the strap anchor to be rather tricky to fit.”

Tester Dorian Spackman, from Cornwall, dad to Max (23 months), said:

“Pricy, but a cut above the others. Easy install, high quality, plus an adjustable back and headrest – although this slightly obscures rear mirror view. Plenty of room for growth.”
